Vollenhoven, Herman van
Utrecht, H.1585 - Utrecht, H.1628

The only known information on this painter is that, in 1611, he belonged to the Guild of Saint Muller (the brotherhood of painters of Utrecht), of which he was a member in 1627–1628. He painted still lifes, portraits and religious scenes, although the latter are only known through prints (Posada Kubissa, T.: Pintura holandesa en el Museo Nacional del Prado. Catálogo razonado, 2009, p. 260).

According to his mentor, the painter and treatise writer Karel van Mander (1548–1606), he began his training with his father Anthonis Jansz. Wtewael, a glassmaker in Utrecht, and continued with the painters Joos de Beer (+1591) and Abraham Bloemaaert (1564–1651). Around 1586, he moved to Italy with his patron Charles Debourgneuf de Cucé, the bishop of Saint Malo. Between 1588–1590, he lived in Pad

He arrived in Holland around 1602 and was accepted as a citizen of Utrecht in 1608. His first surviving painting dates from that year, A Fleet from the Dutch East India Company heading East arriving on an Island off the West Coast of Africa. In 1611, he was a founding member of the Utrecht Guild of Saint Luke, where he repeatedly held the position of dean (1620–1622, 1624–1631 and 1636–1637). Desp

Snyders, Frans
Antwerp, 1579 - Antwerp, 1657

Snyders is one of the 17th-century Flemish painters of highest repute, both for his still lifes and for his hunting scenes, and was very well known and appreciated, particularly in Spain. Considering that one of the major specialities of the Flemish schools is animal paintings, its artists were truly geniuses at inventing the most varied hunting scenes and compositions in which beasts played a pre

Son of a silk merchant, he emigrated early on with his family to the Northern Netherlands, where he converted to Calvinism. He started studying painting 1605, and upon returning to Antwerp in 1611, he entered the Guild of San Lucas after a period of apprenticeship with Jan Brueghel de Velours. In 1614, he re-embraced the Catholic faith and entered the Jesuits in Mechelen as a layman. Afterwards, h

Rubens, Peter Paul
Siegen, Westphalia (Germany), 1577 - Antwerp (Belgium), 1640

No other 17th-century European painter combined artistic talent, social and economic success and a high cultural level like Rubens. Though primarily a painter, he also made numerous designs for prints, tapestries, architecture, sculpture and decorative objects. His abundant work is strikingly versatile in its subject matter, including paintings on mythological, religious and historical subjects as

Ribera, Jusepe de, lo Spagnoletto
Játiva, Valencia (Spain), 1591 - Naples (Italy), 1652

Chronologically, José de Ribera is the first of the great Spanish masters to emerge in the middle decades of the 17th century. His earliest training as an artist is still the object of conjecture, but there is documentation of his presence in Parma in 1611, when he was twenty years old. Four years later, he was in Rome as part of a colony of foreign painters. His life may have been quite bohemian

Ribalta, Francisco
Solsona, Lérida (Spain), 1565 - Valencia (Spain), 1628

This artist of Catalan origin received his early training in El Escorial, where he was surrounded by Spanish and Italian artists and their works and was able to follow their most significant innovations. He thus developed an eclectic style that combined Cincinato's rhetoric with Tibaldi's daring foreshortening and Bartolomé Carducho's gravity with Navarrete's dramatic approach, as well as the chia

Reni, Guido
Calvezzano, Bologna, Emilia-Romagna, 04/11/1575 - Bologna, Emilia-Romagna, 18/08/1642

The triumph of Annibale's oeuvre in Rome paved the way for the disciples of the Carracci family to work at the court of the popes, especially when a cardinal of Bologna acceded to the papal throne as Gregory XV. One of these followers was Reni, who is considered the best known and most prolific artist of the Bolognese school and also the most important. He is without a doubt the best artist who em

Pereda y Salgado, Antonio de
Valladolid (Spain), 1611 - Madrid (Spain), 1678

A typical member of the mid 17th-century group of painters from Madrid, whichwas truly a school of painters and was protected by the court and religious institutions. Its members were almost all contemporaries of Velazquez, although with different degrees of skill, and many were unquestionably great and distinctive. Overall, their work shows an evolution from concrete realism towards the greater d

While this Spanish painter and theorist's painting was never outstanding, his theories reveal the richness of that medium and the singularity of the personnages he had the opportunity to meet, reflecting the interests of his entire period's reflections on art. Pacheco studied with the otherwise unknown teacher Luis Fernández between 1580 and 1585, following mannerist trends from Italy and Flanders

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

After a period of training with his father, Bartholomeus de Momper, he joined the painters’ Guild of Saint Luke in his city around 1581. In 1594, he collaborated with Cornelis Floris on the decorations for the Entry of the Archduke Ernest into Antwerp, and the following year, he produced tapestry cartoons for Albert, Archduke of Austria. Shortly afterwards, he undertook a brief and scarcely docume

He began painting under the guidance of Hans van den Berch, with whom he began training around 1621. His great master, however, would be Frans Snyders. He attained the rank of master of the painters’ Guild of Saint Luke in Antwerp around 1629–1630, although he continued to work for Snyders for some time. In 1633–1634, he was in Paris, and later in Italy. He visited Naples, Florence and Genoa. Some

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

Calvaert, Denys

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

Berruguete, Pedro
Paredes de Nava, Palencia (Spain), Ca. 1445/1450 - Madrid? (Spain), 1503

There are very few documentary references to the life and work of this Spanish painter born to minor nobility in Paredes de Nava (Palencia), probably around 1445. His generally accepted birth date is somewhat later, but 1445 would be correct if, in fact, he was the “Perus Spagnolus” documented in Urbino on April 14, 1477, when he was already twenty-five years old, or older. His grandfather had arr
