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

Peeters, Clara
Antwerp (?), Ca. 1588/90 - Antwerp (?), Post. 1621

Because all the information that we have on Clara Peeters comes from her paintings, we have to content ourselves with trying to piece together a limited biography. Her first picture dates from 1607. Her place of birth is not documented, but there are reasons to think that she based her career in Antwerp. A painting in a collection in Amsterdam is described in a document from 1635 as: "a sugar banq

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

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

According to Von Sandrart, he trained in Gerard van Honthorst’s workshop between 1634 and 1637. Burke (1976) suggests that he may have later started out as an Italianate landscape painter in the workshop of Charles Cornelisz. de Hooch (1600/1606–1638). The first documented record is that of his 1638 admission to the Academy of Saint Luke in Rome, where he must have arrived around 1635, if not earl

Arias Fernández, Antonio
Madrid, Ca. 1614 - Madrid, 1684

This precocious artist studied with Pedro de las Cuevas and, according to Palomino, he was only fourteen when he received his first commission: a retable for the Shod Carmelites in Toledo (lost). In 1639, he was one of a group of artists contracted to paint four canvases to decorate the Golden Hall at the Royal Alcázar in Madrid. Of that group, only one, Charles V and Philip II, has survived.
