Novelli, Pietro
Monreale, Sicily (Italy), 1603 - Palermo, Sicily (Italy), 1647

Monrealese trained first with his father, Pietro Antonio Novell (1568-1625), and subsequently, in 1618, with Vito Carrera (1555-1623) in Palermo. His earliest dated work, painted in 1626, depicts St. Anthony Abbot (Palermo, S. Antonio Abate), and this, along with many other works throughout Monrealese's career, shows the influence of Anthony van Dyck (1599-1641), who had visited Sicily two years e

Macip Comes, Vicente Juan
Valencia, Ca. 1554 - D. 1623

Camprobín, Pedro de
Almagro, Ciudad Real, 1605 - Sevilla, 1674

He is known to have signed an apprenticeship contract with well-known painter Luis Tristán in Toledo when he was fourteen years old (1619). That explains his strong tenebrist approach, which decidedly contrasts with what could be presumed to have been his education as a child, given that his mother, Juana Passano, was related to the wives of the Peroli brothers, Juan Bautista and Esteban, Genoese

Wouwerman, Philips
Haarlem, 1619 - Haarlem, 1668

It is thought that he began his training at the workshop of his father, the history painter Paulus Joostenz. Wouwerman (+1642), by whom no work has been identified to date. According to Cornelis de Bie, he received training in Frans Hals’s workshop, but his painting does not reveal any connection to Hals’s. According to information provided by his student Matthias Scheits (around 1625/30–1700), in

Michelangelo (Michelangelo Buonarroti)
Caprese, Arezzo, Tuscany, 1475 - Rome, 1564

He was apprenticed in 1488 in the workshop of the painter Domenico Ghirlandaio (1448/9-1494) in Florence. The following year he joined the academy of young sculptors in the Medici garden where he probably received instruction from Bertoldo di Giovanni (c. 1430/40-1491). Nevertheless, Michelangelo remained essentially self-taught, enjoying the patronage of Lorenzo the Magnificent until the latter’s

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 during the first decades of the 17th century. He became a history painter in Utrecht at the workshop of Anthonis van Blockland (1533/34–1583) and remained there for two years until the master’s death. Afterwards, he returned to Delft where he established h

Luyckx, Carstian
Amberes, 1623 - Post. 1653

Luyckx was a Flemish painter, specialising in still life paintings in all their forms: vases, vanitas, banquets, festoons of flowers, fruit bowls, garlands… However, he also produced several history paintings. From 1639 to March 1642, he received training from Philips de Marlier and was subsequently a pupil of Frans Francken III. He attained the rank of master on 17 July 1645. In 1646, he appears

La Tour, Georges de
Vic-sur-Seille, 1593 - Luneville, 30/01/1652

The artist was born in a small town in the Duchy of Lorraine, an independent territory in the Germanic Holy Roman Empire, a century and a half before it became part of France. A baker's son, he is documented for the first time in 1616. In 1617 he married the daughter of Jean Le Nerf, silversmith to the reigning duke. One of his sons was Etienne de La Tour, also a painter, who assisted him in the f

Guercino (Giovanni Francesco Barbieri)
Cento, Ferrara (Italy), 1591 - Bologna (Italy), 1666

Born in a town halfway between Ferrara and Bologna, Barbieri soon received the nickname "Il Guercino" owing to his squint ("quercio" in Italian means cross-eyed). He was chiefly self taught in a particularly rich artistic environment: by studying the altar paintings of Ludovico Carracci, which he was able to see in Cento or Bologna, he introduced a vehement dynamism and fluidity of execution into

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

Claesz., Pieter
Berchem (Belgium), 1596/1597 - Haarlem, 1660

Little is known about his life with certainty. From a document dated 29 September 1640, in which the painter states that he was 41 years old, it can be presumed that he was born between 1596 and 1597. His marriage date to Geertje Hendricksdr in Haarlem is documented as 21 May 1617. The couple had two children, Riekje and Claes, the latter of whom became a well-known landscape painter with the name

Adrianssen, Alexander van
Antwerp, 1587 - Antwerp (Belgium), 1661

This Flemish painter from an artistic family studied with his father, composer Emanuel Adrianssen and his two brothers, painters Vicente and Nicolaes Adrianssen. After training with Artus van Laeck he earned the title of Master at the Painters' Guild in 1610, and specialized in still lifes. In 1632, he accepted Painter Philips Milcx as a disciple. Signed works by him are known from as early as 162
