Coccapani, Sigismondo
Florence, 1583 - Florence, 1643

A student of the architect Bernardo Buontalenti (c. 1531-1608) and of Cigoli (1559-1613), together with the latter, he frescoed the dome of the Pauline Chapel in S. Maria Maggiore, Rome, c. 1610-1612. His first work to have been executed without assistance seems to have been a fresco depicting S. Antonio Taking Away Money from Two False Mendicants (1613) in the cloister of S. Marco, Florence. Ther

Morán, Santiago
Madrid (Spain), Ca. 1571 - Valladolid (Spain), 1626

Very little is known about this painter who worked mainly as a portraitist. His first known mention dates from 1597 and links him to Madrid and to Juan Pantoja de la Cruz, with whom he had special contact. In 1609, after a period in Valladolid while the Court was there (1601-1606) he succeeded Pantoja, who had died the previous year, as Philip III's chamber painter in Madrid. Documents show that,

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

He appears to have learned his trade from painter Antonio de Lanchares, who died in 1630. He then spent time in El Escorial, where his particular attention to the Venetian canvases allowed him to acquire a technique so close to that of Titian that some of his works—“Saint Stephen” (Musée des Beaux-Arts de Lille), for example— have been mistaken for those of that master from Cadore. He is known to

Neefs, Pieter I

A Flemish painter and draughtsman, he was the head of the family of painters bearing the same surname. Like his two sons, Ludovicus and Pieter the Younger, he specialised in the depiction of building interiors, particularly churches. There is limited corroborated information on Pieter the Elder. It is thought that he was born in Antwerp around 1576, where his family lived. The influence of Hendric

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
