Arias Fernández, Antonio
Madrid, Ca. 1614 - Madrid, 1684

This precocious artist studied with Pedro de las Cuevas and, according to Palomino, he was only fourteen when he received his first commission: a retable for the Shod Carmelites in Toledo (lost). In 1639, he was one of a group of artists contracted to paint four canvases to decorate the Golden Hall at the Royal Alcázar in Madrid. Of that group, only one, Charles V and Philip II, has survived. In 1

Berdusán y Osorio, Vicente
Ejea de los Caballeros, Zaragoza (Spain), 1632 - Tudela, Navarra (Spain), 1697

Orphaned at the age of eight, he moved to Tudela, where he studied with his uncle, Fernando de Mozos, between 1645 and 1648. He spent the following four years at court, in Juan Carreño de Miranda's workshop. This brought him into contact with the Royal Collections and with other painters working in Madrid, including Francisco ¬Rizi, Claudio Coello, Francisco de Herrera and Mateo Cerezo. In 1653, h

Zurbarán, Francisco de
Fuente de Cantos, Badajoz (Spain), 1598 - Madrid (Spain), 1664

He learned art in Seville with Pedro Díaz de Villanueva (1614), but was undoubtedly friendly with Pacheco and Velázquez as well. History views him as the quintessential monastic painter, absolutely indentified with devout passion and miracles that he presented in a straightforward, direct, severe and everyday manner. He settled in Seville in 1628 and painted innumerable works there, including the

Orrente, Pedro de
Murcia (Spain), 1580 - Valencia (Spain), 1645
Orrente, Pedro de
Murcia (Spain), 1580 - Valencia (Spain), 1645

Known as "the Spanish Bassano," Orrente was highly successful in his time and was admired as a follower of the formulas established by that famous family of Venetian artists, especially in his series of paintings on Old-Testament subjects set in lush landscapes. He lived in various Spanish cities, moving from his native Murcia to Toledo at a young age (he was already there by 1600). The Bassano fa

Murillo, Bartolomé Esteban
Sevilla, 1617 - Sevilla, 1682
Murillo, Bartolomé Esteban
Sevilla, 1617 - Sevilla, 1682

Murillo was apparently a calm and sweet natured man, a fact which might explain some aspects of his personal artistic expression. Born into a family of many siblings, he was orphaned as a child and taken in by one of his sisters. He must have trained with Juan del Castillo, to judge by the characteristics of his early style. In 1645 he married Beatriz Cabrera, who bore him several children. Throug

Luyckx, Carstian
Amberes, 1623 - Post. 1653
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

Lilio, Andrea

Ancona, Le Marche, Ca. 1570 - Ascoli Piceno, Le Marche, 1635

The sources on Lilio's early life are sparse and sometimes contradictory. As a youth he was already active in Rome, since he is recorded in 1583 as beginning work on the four Evangelists beneath the cupola in the Gesu. His early training seems to have been with Cesare Nebbia (c. 1536-1614) and Giovanni Guerra (1544-1618), though he soon after gravitated to the circle of Barocci's followers then wo

Cerezo, Mateo
Burgos (Spain), 1637 - Madrid (Spain), 1666

Born to a modest painter of the same name, he appeared in Madrid around 1641, when he entered the workshop of Carreño de Miranda and became one of his most promising disciples. In fact, he probably collaborated with Carreño on some of the most ambitious commissions from around 1645. An openly sensitive artist, Cerezo must have observed and reused everything he saw around him in Madrid, and while t

He was the son of a lawyer at the Royal Court of Burgos but must have moved to Madrid when quite young. His second marriage—to a painter's daughter—took place there in 1645. According to Palomino, he learned the rudiments of art in Pedro de las Cuevas's workshop, but Lázaro Díaz del Valle called him a disciple of Velázquez, whose "manner" he follows, and added that he specialized in portraiture.
