Master of Becerril

Palencia?, Act. hacia 1520

It has thus far proved impossible to discover the name of this Spanish painter representative of the early Renaissance in Castile. He was the most talentes of Juan de Flandes's disciples and was also influenced by Pedro Berruguete. He is therefore known as the master of a location for which he made one of his most outstanding works, "the retable of the church of San Pelayo" in the Palencian village of Becerril de Campos. That work was later purchased by Malaga Cathedral for one of its chapels. It also provided the basis for attributing other works to this master, including two altarpieces from Ventosa de la Cuesta (Valladolid) and a David from the former Adanero Collection. Besides his debt to Juan de Flandes and Berruguete, the Master of Becerril was receptive to Italian influences that reached the Iberian Peninsula. His contact with them was generally through prints, and he enjoyed including Renaissance architecture in his paintings, often with sculptures or reliefs endowed with symbolic meaning. He also took considerable interest in landscapes, and in that, he followed Juan de Flandes. The only work by the Master of Becerril at the Museo del Prado entered the collection as part of the Pablo Bosch legacy.
