Valdés Leal, Juan de
Sevilla (Spain), 1622 - Sevilla (Spain), 1690
Valdés Leal, Juan de
Sevilla (Spain), 1622 - Sevilla (Spain), 1690

This Spanish painter and engraver was an exact contemporary of Murillo as well as his greatest rival as a painter in Seville at that time. The two have often been compared on the rather artificial basis of their works' respective characters: while Murillo's were seen as the very embodiment of sweetness and tranquility; Valdés Leal's were practically the opposite: harsh and dramatic, and in his bes

Snayers, Peter
Antwerp (Belgium), 1592 - Brussels (Belgium), 1667

Although there are no records in the Guild of Saint Luke showing him as a pupil of Sebastian Vrancx, it is clear that he received his initial training from this painter. He subsequently joined the Guild as a master around 1612–1613. Like Vrancx, he specialised in battle scenes. Even though at the beginning of his career he produced small paintings depicting scenes of skirmishes and path robberies

Rembrandt (Rembrandt Harmensz. van Rijn)
Leiden (Netherlands), 1606 - Amsterdam (Netherlands), 1669

He was the ninth child of a wealthy family from Leiden. His father, Harmen Gerritsz. van Rijn, came from a family of millers who had settled in the city and who adopted the nickname Van Rijn because the mill was located on the banks of the Rhine. His mother, Harmen Neeltgen van Zuytbroeck, was the daughter of a prosperous baker from the same city. In 1620 after he studied for seven years at a Lati

Metsu, Gabriël
Leiden, 1629 - Amsterdam, 1667

He was the son of Jacques Metsu (1587/89–1629), a Flemish painter based in Leiden. In 1648, he played an active role in founding the Guild of Saint Luke in his native city. The records held at the guild’s register reveal that he left Leiden in 1650. He returned in 1654, and in 1657, he moved permanently to Amsterdam, where he remained until his death. In 1658, he married Isabella de Wolff, who was

Meléndez, Miguel Jacinto
Oviedo (Sapin), 1679 - Madrid (Spain), 1734

Miguel Jacinto was the founder of a family of artists, members of which include his younger brother, Francisco Antonio, a miniaturist, and the latter’s son Luis, the most important still-life painter of the 18th century. Miguel Jacinto moved to Madrid at the end of the century, where he apparently studied with Francisco Antonio in the workshop of José García Hidalgo, a former pupil of Juan Carreño

Caro, Francisco
Sevilla (Spain), H.1627 - Madrid (Spain), 1667

Following the death of his father and teacher, Francisco López Caro, he moved to Madrid where, according to Palomino, he studied with Alonso Cano. In Saint Francis of Assisi in the Porziuncola with the Donors Antonio Contreras and María Amezquita, which he painted in 1659 for the cloister of the convent of San Francisco in Segovia (Museo del Prado, from the Museo de la Trinidad), he reflects not

Cano, Alonso

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

He must have been quite young when he arrived in Madrid and became a disciple of Carreño, as he is mentioned as a "master painter" living in Carreño's house in 1666. Among his very few known works are a Saint Jerome signed in 1666 (Meadows Museum, Dallas), four large canvases he made for the Venerable Third Order of Saint Francis between 1667 and 1668, and his collaboration with José Jiménez Donos

Breenbergh, Bartholomeus
Deventer, 1598 - Amsterdam, 1657

The son of a pharmacist, he settled in the city of Deventer. After the death of his father around 1607, the family decided to leave the city. It was possible he began his training in Amsterdam in the workshop of one of the numerous landscape painters then active in the city and now unknown. According to his own testimony, in 1620 he moved to Rome, where he remained more than seven years. There he

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
