Kempeneer, Pieter
Brussels (Belgium), 1503 - 1580

Pieter Kempeneer, known in Spain as Pedro de Campaña, had a significant presence in Sevillian painting during his stay in that city between 1537 and his return to Brussels in 1562. That was a period of extraordinary economic, artist and social development for Seville, and Campaña had much in common with other Northern artists then active in that flourishing city. These artists provided images to t

He was born in Brussels before 1559 and died in Prague in 1606. He worked under the direct orders of the emperor and possible author of his magnificent crown. The work of this artist is characterized by the presence of pavilions, fruits and other stylized elements, excavated in the smooth surface of the gold and animated by transflower enamels, inlaid in varied chromatic contrast (Arbeteta, L.: El

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

A Netherlander by birth, Candid moved to Florence with his father, the bronze-caster Elias de Witte, when he was about ten years old. Biographical details are provided by Karel van Mander (1548-1606), whom he met in that city in 1574. According to van Mander, Candid assisted Vasari (1511-1574) with the decoration of the interior of the Sala Regia in the Vatican, as well as with the cupola of Flore

Around 1600–1601, he was admitted to the painters’ Guild of Saint Luke in Antwerp, and in 1607, he became part of the chamber of rhetoric known as de Violeren. His early works have no rela

A Flemish painter and draughtsman, brother of Cornelis and Jan de Vos. Like his brothers, he studied with David Remeeus and achieved the rank of master around 1620. His first paintings were identical in subject matter and motifs to those of Frans Snyders, with whom he worked during his training. Nevertheless, throughout the course of his career, Paul de Vos specialised in hunting scenes, for which

Utrecht, Adriaen van

A Flemish painter, he was an apprentice to Herman de Ryt from 1614 and visited France, Italy and Germany. In 1625, he returned to Antwerp, where he worked as a master.

Nevertheless, although Utrecht’s work adopts the same abundant arrangement com

Snyders, Frans
Antwerp, 1579 - Antwerp, 1657

Snyders is one of the 17th-century Flemish painters of highest repute, both for his still lifes and for his hunting scenes, and was very well known and appreciated, particularly in Spain. Considering that one of the major specialities of the Flemish schools is animal paintings, its artists were truly geniuses at inventing the most varied hunting scenes and compositions in which beasts played a pre

Snayers, Peter

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

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

Romana, Pedro
Córdoba, Ca. 1460 - Córdoba, 1536

This Spanish painter from the early Andalusian Renaissance was trained in the Spanish-Flemish style but later drew on Italian models present in Cordoba, where he had his workshop from at least 1496. That is the year when Alejo Fernández's presence in that city was first documented. The first reference to Pedro Romana is from 1488, when he was commissioned to make part of an altarpiece for the conv

Picardo, León
Saint-Omer?, Picardía, - Burgos, 1547

As his surname indicates, this painter and sculptor was probably born in the French region of Picardy. He is documented in the parish of San Gil, Burgos, in 1509. He was part of the figurative dialogue included in Diego de Sagredo's Las Medidas del romano, which is considered the Spanish Renaissance's leading book of architectural theory. This offers an approximate idea of Picardo's importance amo
