Risueño, José

Granada (Spain), 1665 - Granada (Spain), 1732

José Risueño was a Spanish painter and sculptor. He received training in his father Manuel Risueño’s workshop alongside sculptors Diego and José de Mora and painter Juan de Sevilla, all of whom were disciples of Alonso Cano. With an abundant artistic output of a religious nature, his work reveals the influence of Cano’s models, a taste for naturalism and the use of Van Dyck’s Flemish prints. His paintings include religious scenes, as exemplified by The Coronation of Saint Rosalia and The Mystical Marriage of Saint Catherine (Granada Cathedral), The Virgin of the Rosary (private collection, Almería) and Saint Thomas Aquinas (acquired in 1911 by the Museo del Prado). He collaborated with Palomino in the rendering of The Triumph of the Eucharist and Saint Bruno for the dome of the tabernacle of the Carthusian monastery in Granada (in situ). He also produced portraits, including that of his protector, The Archbishop Dr Martin Azcargorta (Archbishop’s Palace in Granada). In his sculptural works, he employed the same themes as in his paintings and used a variety of materials – clay, wood and stone – to create altarpieces, doorways and church façades, most of which were in his native city (Burguera Arienza, B. in: Encyclopaedia M.N.P., 2006, vol. V, pp. 1879-80).
