He was a pupil of the painter Donato Creti and Marcantonio Franceschini. Pope Benedict XIV ordered a copy of his St. Peter consecrating St. Apollinaire (San Pietro in Bologna) for the church of Sant'Apollinare in Rome. He also painted altarpieces depicting respectively St. Simone Stoch receives a scapular from the Virgin and St. Pietro Thoma for the first chapels to left and right of the Church of the Carmine in Medicina.
