Sinbaldo Scorza (1589-1631) was born into a wealthy aristocratic family from Voltaggio (now part of Piedmont), his father being the Conte Scorza di Voltaggio and received a literary and humanist education. He first trained with a poorly known painter, Giovanni Battista Carosio, and his son Bernardo until he moved in 1604 to Genoa and apprenticed with Giovanni Battista Paggi. Scorza is best known for paintings in which animals are part of the narrative, such as the story of Noah and others.
