Maganza, Alessandro
Vicenza, 1556 - Vicenza, Después de 1630

Alessandro Maganza, was the best-known member of a family of painters from Vicenza, in whose workshop he trained before moving to that of Giovanni Antonio Fasolo (1530-1572). Thereafter he was in Venice (c. 1572-1576), and his subsequent work shows the various influences of the leading artists of that city: Tintoretto (1519-1594), Veronese (1528-1588), and Palma Il Giovane (c. 1548-1628) as well a

Candid, Pieter
Bruges, H. 1548 - Munich, 1628

A Netherlander by birth, Candid moved to Florence with his father, the bronze-caster Elias de Witte, when he was about ten years old. Biographical details are provided by Karel van Mander (1548-1606), whom he met in that city in 1574. According to van Mander, Candid assisted Vasari (1511-1574) with the decoration of the interior of the Sala Regia in the Vatican, as well as with the cupola of Flore

Titian (Tiziano Vecellio)
Pieve di Cadore, Belluno, Veneto (Italy), Ca. 1490 - Venice (Italy), 1576

Born to an important family from Cadore, Titan arrived in Venice around 1500-1502. There, after first working in Giovanni Bellini’s workshop, he entered that of his older brother Gentile Bellini. Around 1507, he began working with Giorgone on the decoration of the façades of the Fondaco dei Tedeschi, the German merchants’ warehouse in Venice. Today, only a small part of the original frescoes remai

Samacchini, Orazio

Samacchini, Orazio
Bologna, 1532 - Bologna, 1577

Samacchini trained under Pellegrino Tibaldi (1527-1596), but his early work was influenced primarily by such artists as Raphael (1483-1520) and Prospero Fontana (1512-1597), as is detectable in the Marriage of the Virgin (c. 1555-1560) for S. Giuseppe in Bologna. In 1563 he worked in the Vatican, participating in the decoration of the Sala Regia and the Belvedere. This experience of Rome exposed S

Peeters, Clara
Antwerp (?), Ca. 1588/90 - Antwerp (?), Post. 1621

Because all the information that we have on Clara Peeters comes from her paintings, we have to content ourselves with trying to piece together a limited biography. Her first picture dates from 1607. Her place of birth is not documented, but there are reasons to think that she based her career in Antwerp. A painting in a collection in Amsterdam is described in a document from 1635 as: "a sugar banq

Neefs, Pieter I
Antwerp, Ca. 1576 - Antwerp, 1656-1661

A Flemish painter and drawer, he was the head of the family of painters bearing the same surname. Just as his two sons, Ludovicus and Pieter the Younger, he specialised in the depiction of building interiors, particularly churches. There is limited corroborated information on Pieter the Elder. It is assumed that he was born in Antwerp around 1576, where his family lived. The influence of Hendrick

Mor, Anthonis
Utrecht (Netherlands), 1516/1521 - Antwerp? (Belgium), 1576

Born around the end of the second decade of the 16th century, Anthony More trained with the Romanist painter Jan van Scorel, a prominent portraitist and excellent connoisseur of the Italian cultural scene having sojourned on the Italian peninsula on several occasions. The young artist thus learned the principles of technique and aesthetics applied to portrait painting. He soon came into contact wi

Morales, Luis de
Badajoz (Spain), hacia 1510 - Alcántara? (Spain), 1586

Luis de Morales was born in 1510 or 1511. In an affidavit made in December 1584, the painter declared himself to “be of the age of seventy-three or four years”, an affirmation that confirms the information given by Antonio Palomino in his “Vidas”. The painter almost certainly died in 1586 in Alcántara, the place where he had settled in the last years of his life. According to the testimony of his

El Greco (Domenikos Theotokopoulos)
Candia, Crete (Greece), 1541 - Toledo (Spain), 1614

This Spanish painter of Greek origin was born in the capital city of the Isle of Crete, which then belonged to the Republic of Venice. His family was Greek, but probably Catholic rather than Orthodox, and its members collaborated with the colonial powers. He was trained as an Icon painter in the late-Byzantine tradition, but contact with Italian engravings allowed him to absorb and partially emplo

Gambara, Lattanzio

Gambara, Lattanzio
Brescia, 1530 - Brescia, 1574

Prolific frescoist and draftsman; it is probable that Gambara trained in the Campi workshop at Cremona, before returning to Brescia in 1549. There, he became an assistant to Gerolamo Romanino (1484/87-[?]1560), marrying the latter's daughter, Margherita, in 1556. Thenceforth, he continued to work mainly in his native Brescia, but also spent periods in Mantua, Cremona, and Parma. In the '1550s, he

Fernández, Gregorio
Sarriá, Lugo (Spain), 1576 - Valladolid (Spain), 1636

The artistic tradition associated with Valladolid -which had reached such a high level in the 16th century- and the fact that it was the Spanish monarchy's favorite city between 1601 and 1606, was responsible for a considerable number of 17th-century artists who prolonged the splendor attained earlier by Alonso Berruguete, Juan de Juni and Pompeo Leoni. This indisputable reality was reinforced by

Carducho, Vicente
Florence (Italy), Ca. 1576 - Madrid (Spain), 1638

This Italian painter had a fecund and influential career at court in Madrid, especially with religious works whose initial Counter-Reformation classicism evolved towards a sometimes highly intense naturalism. He arrived at San Lorenzo de El Escorial in 1585 with his brother, Bartolomé, who was Federico Zuccaro's assistant and young Vicente's teacher. In 1599, he took part in the decorations for Qu

Calvaert, Denys
Antwerp, H.1540 - Bologna, 1619

Flemish painter and draftsman, he was for long active in Italy. In 1556-1557, he is recorded in Antwerp as the pupil of the landscape painter Kerstiaen van Queboom (1515-1578). He arrived in Bologna in c. 1560, where he was to remain for the remainder of his career, except for a period in Rome in 1572-1575. On his arrival in Bologna, he entered the workshop of Prospero Fontana (1512-1597), leaving
