Lambert (S.M. dell Anima; sketch in Cambridge, Fitzwilliam), as well as briefly collaborating with Sacchi (1641-43). He also painted figures for Claude s landscapes. In 1658 he was made Court Painter at Turin, where he died. There are works in the Royal Collection, Windsor, and in Birmingham, Bologna, Edinburgh, Grenoble, London , Northampton and elsewhere.
