José de Ribera | Baroque Era painter


José de Ribera** (1591-1652) was born in Spain, at Játiva near Valencia, and probably received his training there under Francisco Ribalta.
He moved soon afterwards to Italy and following a period in Rome settled in Naples in 1616.
Ribera became well known for the realism of his treatment of violent subjects such as 'The Martyrdom of Saint Bartholomew' and 'The Flaying of Marsyas' (Pitti, Florence, and Museo di San Martino, Naples, respectively), but he also painted genre scenes and religious subjects in a refined classical mode characterised by a rich palette.| © The National Gallery, Trafalgar Square, London

Luca Giordano | Baroque Era painter ⁽³⁾


Luca Giordano** (1634-1705) was the leading Neapolitan painter** of the later 17th century. He was born in Naples and was trained by Ribera. He was known as Fa Presto ('does it quickly') because of his speed of painting. His work influenced developments in 18th century art in Naples and elsewhere in Italy.
His style was formed by his experience of Neapolitan art (dominated by the work of Caravaggio**), and by his knowledge of the leading Roman painters of the early 17th century notably Annibale Carracci**, Pietro da Cortona, and the great Venetian artists of the 16th century.

Luca Giordano | Baroque Era painter


Luca Giordano**, (born Oct. 18, 1634, Naples - died Jan. 3, 1705, Naples), the most celebrated and prolific Neapolitan painter** of the late 17th century.
His nickname Luca Fa Presto (“Luca, Work Quickly”) is said to derive from his painter-copyist father’s admonitions, which were certainly heeded.
His other nickname, Proteus, was acquired as a result of his reputed skill in producing pastiches in the style of almost any artist.
