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 only his teacher's influence but also that of Vicente Carducho, which he would have received from Francisco Rizi. In 1658 he was contracted to make ten canvases on the life of the Virgin for the sancta sanctorum at the chapel of San Isidro in the church of San Andrés. These works were lost in a fire in 1936. The Museo del Prado has two other works by him: Christ and the Centurion (from the Museo de la Trinidad) and The Holy Trinity (bequeathed by Rosario Rodríguez Vaamonde de Fuente Alcázar in 1898).
