One of his nicknames, Proteus, was acquired as a result of his reputed skill in producing pastiches, an artistic work in a style that imitates that of another work, artist, or period. His other nickname was Luca Fa Presto, because he is said to have painted a large altarpiece in one day, it is no wonder that his output, both in oil and in fresco, was enormous.
