According to Von Sandrart, he trained in Gerard van Honthorst’s workshop between 1634 and 1637. Burke (1976) suggests that he may have later started out as an Italianate landscape painter in the workshop of Charles Cornelisz. de Hooch (1600/1606–1638). The first documented record is that of his 1638 admission to the Academy of Saint Luke in Rome, where he must have arrived around 1635, if not earl

Pret, Miguel de
Antwerp, 1595 - Zaragoza, 1644

Miguel de Pret was a Spanish painter of Flemish origin specialized in still lifes. His biography can be reconstructed on the basis of his death certificate, his will and the documents generated for his entry into the “Company of Archers of the Noble Garde de Corps of Our Lord the King” in November 1641, which required him to demonstrate his noble blood and Flemish origin. He was born in Antwerp to

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

Stom, Matthias (also called Stomer)
Amersfoort (Netherlands), H.1600 - Sicily (Italy), Después.1650

Little is known about this Dutch painter who settled in Italy. The earliest extant documentary reference to Stom is the parish family book from 1630 and 1631 in the Roman church of San Nicola in Arcione, where it is recorded that he was 30 years old and lived on the strada dell’Olmo. Therefore, his date of birth can be placed around 1600. Amersfoort has been his assumed place of birth, although d

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

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

Alonso Cano is unique among 17th-century Spanish artists as he was mainly a draftsman and designer, but was equally successful as an architect, sculptor and painter.His earliest experience with the arts probably took place in his own home, as his father designed and carved altarpieces and choir stalls. The family moved to Seville, where Alonso entered Francisco Pacheco’s studio at the age of fifte

He was a history painter, a portraitist and a landscape artist. There is no information about his childhood in Amsterdam. He had moved to Haarlem prior to 1617, as that year he was accepted into the circle of rhetoricians De Wijngaardranke (the vineyard assembly). In that city, he studied with Hendrick Goltzius (1558–1617) and Cornelis Cornelisz. van Haarlem (1562–1638). There is evidence that Chr

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
