Steenwijck, Pieter van
Delft, H. 1615 - Después de 1656

He was the son of Evert Steenwijck, ‘Brillenmaecker’ (spectacle maker) of Delft, and the younger brother of the still life painter Herman Steenwijck (1602/22–1656/76). His training is documented in his uncle David Bailly’s (1584–1657) workshop, an esteemed portraitist and still life painter of Leiden. Upon completing his apprenticeship, he returned to Delft, where he joined the Guild of Saint Luke

Sánchez Cotán, Juan
Orgaz, Toledo, 1560 - Granada, 1627

The earliest Spanish painter with extant still lifes, most of which were painted before 1603. Baptized in his hometown’s parish church on June 25, 1560, he lived and worked in Toledo. He may have been a disciple of Blas de Prado, who was the first documented Spanish still-life painter, although none of his works in that genre have been identified. Part of Sánchez Cotán’s family lived in Orgaz (Tol

Poccetti, Bernardino Barbatelli
San Marino di Valdesa, 1548 - Florence, 1612

A student of Michele di Ridolfo (1503-1577), Poccetti specialized as a frescoist. During his early period, his painted facades in Florence were celebrated enough to earn him the nickname "Bernardino delle facciate"; extant examples include those decorating the Palazzo di Bianca Capello. Following a short period in Rome (1578-1580) he returned to Florence and began also to work on large-stale inter

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

Mierevelt, Michiel Jansz. Van
Delft, 1567 - Delft, 1641

Son of the goldsmith Jan Michelsz. van Mierevelt (1528–1612), Michiel was the most prominent representative of official Dutch portrait painting in the first decades of the 17th century. He became a history painter in Anthonis van Blockland’s (1533/34–1583) workshop in Utrecht, where he remained for two years until the master’s death. Afterwards, he returned to Delft where he established himself as

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

Carracci, Annibale
Bologna, 1560 - Rome, 1609

Annibale was probably trained by his elder cousin, Ludovico Carracci (1555-1619), as well as by Bartolomeo Passarotti (1529-1592). In 1582, he and other family members established an academy for the study of art, later known as the Accademia degli Incamminati, which was fundamental to the subsequent development of Bolognese painting in the seventeenth century. Among his earliest works are a number

On his arrival in Genoa in c. 1605, Benso sought the protection of Gian Carlo Doria, in whose household he found lodgings. On Doria's recommendation, Benso was apprenticed to Giovanni Battista Paggi (1554-c. 1627), whose workshop was one of the largest and most successful in Genoa at the time. Following Paggi's death (1627), he went to Weingarten in Germany; where he began a long collaboration wit

Ansaldo, Giovanni Andrea
Voltri, Genoa, 1584 - Genoa, 1638

He was first trained by Orazio Cambiaso (active between 1583 and 1600), son of Luca Cambiaso (1527-1585). He spent most of his career in Genoa, where he was a successful painter of large-scale fresco decorations, often featuring elaborate settings of feigned architecture. Ansaldo combined the ethos of the local Genoese school, dominated by Cambiaso's studio, with other trends from Northern Italian
