Espinosa, Juan de
Doc. 1628 - Doc. 1659

This painter, whose biography is unknown, may have been mainly active during the first half of the 17th century in Madrid. His name is cited in relation to other Madrid painters in documents dated 1628 and 1659. Other surviving information appears to add to the vagueness surrounding this figure, as there were at least two painters by the same name working at the court; one had died in 1641 and the

Wtewael, Joachim
Utrecht, 1566 - Utrecht, 1638

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

Velázquez, Diego Rodríguez de Silva y
Sevilla (Spain), 1599 - Madrid (Spain), 1660

Born in Seville, Velázquez adopted his mothers surname, as was common in Andalusia, signing “Diego Velázquez” or “Diego de Silva Velázquez". He studied painting and worked professionally in his native city until he was twenty-four, then moved with his family to Madrid. There, he entered the king’s service, remaining until his death in 1660. Much of his work was painted for the royal collection and

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

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

Heda, Willem Claesz
Haarlem, 1594 - Haarlem, 1680

He came from a wealthy family. Nothing is known about his artistic training. A document from 1620 already cites him as a painter in Haarlem. From 1631 onwards, he is documented in the book of the Haarlem Guild of Saint Luke, of which he was a council member on repeated occasions between 1637 and 1652; deken (dean) in 1641 and 1642 and hoofdman (captain) in 1637, 1643 and 1651. Since 1637, he admit

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

Castello, Félix
Madrid (Spain), 1595 - Madrid (Spain), 1651

He was born to a family of Italian artists. His father, Fabricio, was one of the painters who came to Spain to work at El Escorial and later married a Spanish woman. His grandfather, Giovanni Battista Castello, el Bergamasco, had also worked for Philip II and died in Madrid in 1569. Besides training with his family, Félix was a close disciple of Vicente Carducho, and he maintained ties to that mas

Cano, Alonso
Granada, 1601 - Granada, 1667

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

Brueghel the Younger, Jan
Antwerp (Belgium), 1601 - Antwerp (Belgium), 1678

Jan Brueghel the Younger was an independent artist of great talent, who has been underappreciated in historiography at times. He was the eldest son of Jan ‘Velvet’ Brueghel and thus the grandson of Pieter Brueghel the Elder. He probably trained in the workshop of his father, who encouraged him to travel to Milan in 1622 and enter the service of Cardinal Federico Borromeo. From Milan, he travelled

Bray, Salomon de
Amsterdam, 1597 - Haarlem, 1664

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
