Artist
Luca Ciamberlano (1570-1641)
Title
Filippo converts a leading Jewish family
Date
1610
Medium
Engraving. After a design by Ciamberlano. Plate 1/45 of a Life of Saint Philip Neri. Forty-one of these plates are by Luca Ciamberlano and four (including an unnumbered title plate) by Christan Sas (b. 1648 and active in 1660). The plates by Ciamberlano follow designs by Guido Reni (1575-1642), Ciamberlano himself, and possibly others. The plates by Sas are all after Jacques Stella (1596-1657). This set of plates was published, together with a 45th numbered engraving by Girolamo Frezza (1659-1741) after Pietro Leone Ghezzi (1674-1755), in Pietro Giacomo Bacci C.O. (1575-1656) Vita di S. Filippo Neri Fiorentino. Rome: appresso il Bernabò e Lazzarini, 1745 (this is a later edition of a book first published in the 1620s in connection with the canonization of Neri). Our image is drawn from this 1745 edition.

Note
An account book kept by the artist identifies Reni as the designer of twenty-four of the Ciamberlano engravings, and Ciamberlano himself as the designer of three. It also dates precisely the Ciamberlano plates. See Melasecchi, Olga & Pepper, D. Stephen, "Guido Reni, Luca Ciamberlano and the Oratorians: Their relationship clarified." The Burlington Magazine 140: 596-603.
