16651730
a Spanish Baroque painter of Genoese origin. De Torres started painting about 1680, and trained with Juan de Valdés Leal, inheriting his style, but the number of works that can be attributed to him is low. A few tables and six apostles painted on the pillars of the Dominican Church of San Pablo in Seville, which corroborates his being a disciple of Juan de Valdés Leal. De Torres visited the Court of Madrid in 1724and established a friendship with Antonio Palomino, the official painter of the Court, to which he devoted a complimentary poem. He returned to Cádiz, where he continued to paint until his death in 1730.
