Carducho, Vicente

Carducho, Vicente
Florence (Italy), Ca. 1576 - Madrid (Spain), 1638

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

Giordano, Luca

Giordano, Luca
Naples (Italy), 1634 - Naples (Italy), 1705

During his life, Luca Giordano enjoyed a popularity in both Italy and Spain that plummeted after his death, due to two prejudices that have lasted until quite recently. The first was an association of his surprising speed as a painter with the idea that his work was somehow superficial, an accusation constantly leveled at him by advocates of the Greco-Roman aesthetic. The second stemmed from his s

Juanes, Juan de (Vicente Juan Masip)
Fuente la Higuera, Valencia, H.1503/05 - Bocairente, Valencia, 1579

Juan de Juanes was one of the most important painters of the Spanish Renaissance. He dominated Valencian circles in the mid 16th century, although there is still some discussion as to whether certain works were painted by him or by his father, Juan Vicente Masip, who was already active in 1493 and was unquestionably one of the great Valencian painters of the early sixteenth century. Juanes began w

Rubens, Peter Paul

Rubens, Peter Paul
Siegen, Westphalia (Germany), 1577 - Antwerp (Belgium), 1640

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

Carducho, Bartolomé

Carducho, Bartolomé
Florence (Italy), Ca. 1560 - Madrid (Spain), 1608

Of this Italian painter, sculptor and architect, Ceán Bermúdez observed: "Few painters from Italy have been as useful for the fine arts in Spain as Carducho." And indeed, he is a key figure for understanding the development of painting at the Spanish court at the beginning of the 17th century. This is due not so much to his work as to the school of artists that trained under him, beginning with h

Lanchares, Antonio de

Lanchares, Antonio de
Madrid?, Doc. 1590 - Madrid? (Spain), Doc. 1630

In 1639, this painter and disciple of Eugenio Cajés -he was probably José Lanchares's brother- was working for the archbishop of Toledo. Jusepe Martínez indicates that he spent time in Italy at some point, although he does not specify dates. Moreover, his artworks show no particular Italian influence of the sort to be expected after such a visit. His work is openly related to the style of his mast

Borgoña, Juan de
Act. 1495 - Toledo, 1534
Borgoña, Juan de
Act. 1495 - Toledo, 1534

This artist of Burgundian origin had contact with the Tuscan school and was active in Toledo between 1495 and 1535. His main pieces are at cathedrals in Toledo and Avila. He was one of the most important masters in Spain at the beginning of the 16th century and his work in Toledo, where he certainly modified that city’s aesthetic climate, was decisive for ushering in the Renaissance in Castile. Hi

Machuca, Pedro
Toledo, H.1490 - Granada, 1550

His stay in Italy was already documented in 1517, when he signed The Virgin and the Souls of Purgatory (Museo del Prado). This work's style has led him to be related with Raphael's workshop, especially with some of his frescoes for the vatican stanze. Various contemporaneous references to a Petro Spagnolo have also linked him to Michelangelo and to other temporary creations in Rome in 1515. Machuc

Vasari, Giorgio
Arezzo, 1511 - Florence, 1574

He was first taught in his native Arezzo by the little-known French glass painter and fresco painter, Guillaume de Marcillat (1475-1529 or 1537). By 1524, he had moved to Florence, where he worked for Andrea del Sarto (1486-1530), in whose studio he became acquainted with Francesco Salviati (1510-1563). During his early training in Florence, he met Michelangelo (1475-1564) and Baccio Bandinelli (1

Giulio Romano (Giulio Pippi) worked with Raphael (1483-1520), first as a pupil and then as an assistant, and was involved in the decoration both of the Vatican Stanze, in particular that of the Stanze dell'Incendio (completed by 1517) and the Logge (completed 1519). Following Raphael's death in 1520, Giulio collaborated with Giovanni Francesco Penni (c. 1496-after 1528) on the decoration of the Sa

Considered the maximum representative of rococo painting in Rome during the first half of the 18th century and a referent for various generations of Spanish painters, this artist produced abundant oil paintings and most of all, frescoes. He studied with Saverio Porta until 1719, moving to Naples in 1721 to work under the tutelage of Nicola Maria Rossi, a follower of Francesco Solimena. His deep st
