Spanish Baroque Era Painter, 1642-1693
Spanish painter and draughtsman. Together with the court painters Francisco Rizi, Juan Carre?o de Miranda and Francisco de Herrera, he was one of the foremost exponents of a style of Spanish painting that developed between c. 1660 and 1700 and was characterized by theatrical compositions and rich colours. The sources of this late Baroque style, which was distinct from that of the previous generation of Spanish Baroque artists, most of whom painted sober, realistic depictions of religious and secular life, lie in the influence exerted by Venetian Renaissance painting and by Italian and Flemish art of the period, Related Paintings of COELLO, Claudio :. | Portrait of Teresa Francisca Mudarra y Herrera | King Charles II | The Adoration of the Holy Family by St.Louis.King of France,and Othe Saints | La Sagrada Forma | St.Dominic de Guzman |
