1614, Apr 91685, Aug 2
a Spanish painter of Italian ancestry. After beginning his apprenticeship in his father's workshop, he studied with Vicente Carducho, who was also of Italian origin. Thanks to Carducho's influence, he was able to make contacts at the Royal Court in 1634. After Carducho's death in 1638, he joined with several other painters to create decorations for the Golden Salon at the Royal Alcázar of Madrid. These were destroyed in the Great Fire of 1734. Between 1640 and 1649, he became one of the earliest painters in Spain to adopt the Baroque style. A notable example is the large altarpiece made for the Capuchins, in a style reminiscent of Pieter Paul Rubens or Anthony van Dyck.
