Nalda, Juan de

ca. 1490, 1510

This Spanish painter from the school of Hispano-Flemish painting in Castile was active in the regions of Palencia and Burgos. Originally from Rioja, Juan de Nalda completed his training in Avignon, in the workshop of painter Jean Changenet (documented in Avignon, 1493). After returning to Castile, he must have been active in and around Burgos, as the only works attributed to him with known origins are four panels made around 1500 for the church of Santa Clara in Palencia, founded by the admirals of Castile: The Virgin of Mercy and Saint Gregory's Mass (Museo Arqueológico Nacional, Madrid), and The Death of the Virgin and The Coronation (Musée des Beaux-Arts, Lyon). Other panels have been attributed to Nalda on the basis of those works, including Saint John the Baptist, from the Altarpiece of the Visitation at Palencia Cathedral, and Saint Gregory (Museo del Prado). Together, they reveal Nalda's stylistic debt to art from Provence in their simplification of volumes and the light tones of the light, which is determinant in the compositions' final effect, as its presence helps create an atmosphere of tranquil calm. The present panel at the Museo del Prado was considered an anonymous work from the 16th century until 1985. In 1990, Pilar Silva attributed it to Juan de Nalda.
