Ascanio Luciano (1621-1706)

Details about his life are scarce. He is believed to have been born in Naples in 1621. When the architectural painter Viviano Codazzi took up residence in Naples in 1634, Luciano was just 13 years old. It is believed that Luciano trained with Codazzi before Codazzi left Naples around 1650. The basis for the assumption is that Luciano's early works are very close in style to those of Codazzi to the point of often being confused with works of his presumed master. In 1665 Luciano became a member of the Congregation of painters of Ss. Anna and Luca. Luciano lived until a very old age and died in Naples on 18 August 1706.

Giovanni Paolo Panini (1691-1765)

Giovanni Paolo Panini or Pannini was a painter and architect who worked in Rome and is primarily known as one of the vedutisti ("view painters"). As a painter, Panini is best known for his vistas of Rome, in which he took a particular interest in the city's antiquities. Most of his works, especially those of ruins, have a fanciful and unreal embellishment characteristic of capriccio themes. In this they resemble the capricci of Marco Ricci.

Marco Ricci (1676-1730)

Italian painter of the Baroque period. He was born at Belluno and received his first instruction in art from his uncle, Sebastiano Ricci, likely in Milan in 1694–6. He left for Venice with his uncle in 1696, but had to flee the city after killing a gondolier. He visited Rome, where he was for some time occupied in painting perspective views. In 1706–7, he worked with his uncle on the decoration of the Sala d'Ercole in the Palazzo Fenzi, located in Florence. Ricci's propensity for collaboration with other artists makes his early style difficult to trace, but it is generally agreed that his influences included Claude Lorrain, Gaspard Dughet, and Salvator Rosa, along with a naturalistic style of landscape painting practiced in the Veneto in the 17th and early 18th centuries.

Giovanni Niccolò Servandoni (1695-1766)

Born in Florence and trained in Rome, Servandoni went to Paris in 1724. A versatile artist with a strong knowledge of perspective and antiquity, he found success in a variety of fields, from theater design to courtly festivals, with their fanciful temporary structures. Although he was not formally trained in architecture, he won the 1732 competition to design the façade of Saint Sulpice, which earned him the title Architecte du Roi. He also produced paintings in oil and gouache. They are typically architectural capricci that recall the layered perspective of stage sets, as here, where a crumbling archway frames a distant view of a triumphal arch.
