Among his many altarpieces are the Circumcision (c.1616) now in Galleria Estense, Modena, and the Last Supper (1616) for Convent associated with the Basilica della Santissima Annunziata del Vastato in Genoa. He also painted the Scourging of Christ.

He worked with Giovanni Battista Crespi (il Cerano) and Pier Francesco Mazzucchelli (il Morazzone) following the directions of Cardinal Federico Borromeo, patron of the arts and cousin of Charles Borromeo. He also painted small religious canvases for rich families, in Milan and in Genoa, where he saw the works of Rubens.

His style shows the influence of Bolognese mannerism and Venetian colorism and marks the beginning of the Baroque.
