Famous for his paintings of animals, landscapes and still lifes, Giacomo (sometimes spelled Jacopo) Nani was an Italian painter of the Baroque period. Presumably born in Naples, Nani studied under Gasparo López and Andrea Belvedere whose style Nani often imitated. Nani became famous while working for the court of Charles III of Bourbon, future Charles III of Spain. His work is featured in the collections of museums worldwide, especially his hometown museum in Naples. An excellent example of his work, this painting is signed in the lower left corner Giacomo Nani.
