1638, May 121688
a Spanish painter, born at Granada. He was a scholar of Alonso Cano and John of Seville, but improved himself in colouring by studying the works of Pedro de Moya and Van Dyck. He was vain and arrogant, and boasted his superiority to all the artists of his time; but on being challenged to a contest of ability by Mathias de Torres, he slunk from the trial, and left Madrid. His works were, however, much coveted, and no collection was considered complete without a specimen.
