Matteo Perez d'Aleccio

Matteo Perez d'Alleccio studied under Michelangelo, working on the Sistine Chapel, the Vatican. He is credited with having introduced mannerism to Malta with his frescoes of the Siege of Malta in the Hall of St Michael and St George, also known as the Throne Room, of the Grandmaster's Palace, Valletta. These were painted from 1575 to 1581, at the same time as the oil paintings of the same scene, four of which can be found in the Cube Room of the Queen's House, Greenwich, London.
