Sir Peter Lely | Baroque painter

Sir Peter Lely (14 September 1618 - 7 December 1680) was a painter of Dutch origin whose career was nearly all spent in England, where he became the dominant portrait painter to the court.

Lely studied painting in Haarlem, where he may have been apprenticed to Pieter de Grebber.
He became a master of the Guild of Saint Luke in Haarlem in 1637.
He is reputed to have adopted the surname "Lely" (also occasionally spelled Lilly) from a heraldic lily on the gable of the house where his father was born in The Hague.

Tomasz Rut, 1961 | Neo Baroque painter

Named one of the most collectible living artists, Tomasz Rut continues to expand the realm of contemporary figurative painting to the artistic limits reached only by the Great Masters of the past. Often compared to the epic works of the Antiquity, Renaissance and Baroque, his Classical artwork, inducted into The Vatican Collection by Pope Benedict XVI, resurrects the dormant tradition of figurative painting, emulating the style, harmonious elegance and passion in the spirit of Michelangelo, Raphael or Caravaggio, but does it in an eloquent, modern adaptation, accommodating the contemporary viewer.

Massimo Stanzione (1585-1656) | Baroque painter

Massimo Stanzione was an Italian Baroque painter, mainly active in Naples, where he and his rival Jusepe de Ribera dominated the painting scene for several decades. Most of his work, in both oils and fresco (these usually for ceilings), depicted religious subjects.
A papal knight, he is often referred to as Cavalliere Massimo Stanzione, especially in older sources.
Born in Frattamaggiore, Naples in 1585, Massimo Stanzione was influenced by Caravaggio.
What distinguished Massimo’s art from that of Caravaggio's was that he combined the latter's dramatically lit and brutally realistic style with the classical and lyrical manner of Bolognesi painters, earning him the nickname of the Napolitan Guido Reni.

Hendrick Jansz ter Brugghen (detto anche Terbrugghen) ebbe un ruolo di primo piano, assieme a Gerrit van Honthorst e Dirck van Baburen, tra i seguaci olandesi del Caravaggio, i cosiddetti caravaggisti di Utrecht.


Nacque nel 1588 nei Paesi Bassi. Sul suo luogo di nascita non c'è accordo fra le fonti: L'Aia o nell'Overijssel (forse Deventer). Si stabilì giovanissimo a Utrecht dove diventò allievo di Abraham Bloemaert.
Anche se non è certa la data del suo viaggio in Italia (1604 o 1607), si ritiene che abbia vissuto a Roma fino al 1614, anno in cui viene segnalato a Milano mentre è di ritorno verso casa.

Diego Velázquez (1599-1660) | Life and Artworks

Velázquez was born in 1599 in Seville in southern Spain, at that time an important city with a thriving artistic community. At the age of eleven, Velázquez was apprenticed to Francisco Pacheco, Seville's most significant artist and art theorist.
From Pacheco, Velázquez learned the technical skills of drawing and painting, still-life and portraiture and soon surpassed his master. Unlike the more traditional Pacheco, he responded to the techniques of modern innovators such as Caravaggio. (Caravaggio was famous for his dark, dramatically lit works and un-idealised models. Copies of his paintings spread all over Europe.)

Luca Carlevarijs (1663-1730) | Baroque Era / Veduta painter

Luca Carlevarijs or Carlevaris was an Italian painter and engraver working mainly in Venice.
He pioneered the genre of the cityscapes (vedute) of Venice, a genre that was later widely followed by artists such as Canaletto🎨 and Francesco Guardi🎨.
Carlevarijs was born in Udine. He was also known as 'Luca Casanobrio' or 'Luca di ca Zenobrio', for his patronage by the latter family.
He worked principally in Venice, where he also died. His daughter, Marianna Carlevarijs (1703-1750) learned the art of pastel portraiture from Rosalba Carriera🎨.

Carlevarijs visited Rome. Here he was influenced by the Dutch painter Caspar van Wittel🎨 (often called Vanvitelli), who was a long-term resident of Rome.
Van Wittel🎨 was the pioneer of the genre of vedute of Rome. Carlevarijs then started to create vedute of Venice, which are among the earliest Baroque depictions of the city.
He painted landscapes, sea-pieces and perspective views. His works included cityscapes with a topological interest as well as imaginary landscapes with ruins.
He completed over a hundred etchings of views in Venice, which give an exact representation of the principal places in that city.
The painters Canaletto🎨, Francesco Guardi🎨 and Antonio Visentini are said to have been influenced by his work or even have been his pupils.
His paintings and his set of 104 etched views of Venice, which were published in 1703, were the foundation on which Canaletto and Guardi built. Johan Richter collaborated with him.
He also collaborated with specialist figure painters who added the staffage into his landscapes or cityscapes. He worked mostly in Venice.| © Wikipedia

Luca Carlevarijs (talvolta anche Carlevaris) (Udine, 20 gennaio 1663 - Venezia, 12 febbraio 1730) è stato un pittore Italiano, considerato il primo vedutista veneziano del Settecento ed il precursore del Canaletto e degli altri vedutisti veneziani.
Originario del capoluogo friulano Udine, il pittore si recò nel 1679 a Venezia.
La sua prima opera datata, del 1708, è un ciclo di 100 stampe che illustrano i monumenti veneziani. Questo ciclo epocale segna l'inizio dell'interesse per il vedutismo.
Le vedute dipinte del Carlevarijs erano fortemente influenzate dalla pittura dei Paesi Bassi, non soltanto di Gaspare Vanvitelli🎨 (Gaspar van Wittel), ritenuto il fondatore del vedutismo in Italia, ma anche dei romanisti olandesi di fine Seicento, come Jan Asselijn, Jan Baptist Weenix e soprattutto Johannes Lingelbach.

Nel 1703 licenziò la grande raccolta di 104 acqueforti dedicate a Venezia.
Carlevarijs fu uno degli artisti veneziani più ricercati della sua epoca, anche per la produzione di Capricci in cui lasciava spazio alla fantasia ed alla descrizione di episodi della vita comune.
Luca Carlevarijs realizzò incisioni con vedute di Venezia. Nelle sue acqueforti le linee sono nervose e fluide.
La città viene vista riflessa come in uno specchio e la realtà come un gioco fantastico e variabile.

Francisco De Zurbarán | Baroque Era painter

Francisco de Zurbarán (baptized November 7, 1598 - August 27, 1664) was a Spanish painter. He is known primarily for his religious paintings depicting monks, nuns, and martyrs, and for his still-lifes. Zurbarán gained the nickname Spanish Caravaggio, owing to the forceful, realistic use of chiaroscuro in which he excelled.

Zurbarán was born in 1598 in Fuente de Cantos, Extremadura; he was baptized on November 7 of that year. His parents were Luis de Zurbarán, a haberdasher, and his wife, Isabel Márquez. In childhood he set about imitating objects with charcoal. In 1614 his father sent him to Seville to apprentice for three years with Pedro Díaz de Villanueva, an artist of whom very little is known.

Simone Cantarini (1612-1648) | Baroque painter

Simone Cantarini was born in Pesaro, in the Marches, a region which was a crossroads for artists from many parts of Italy.
Cantarini began his artistic training quite young, probably 1623-1625, in the studio of Giovanni Giacomo Pandolfi (?1570-1640?), a painter of religious works who combined the local naturalism with the mannerist style of the late sixteenth century.
After a brief trip to Venice, Cantarini moved to the shop of Claudio Ridolfi (?1570-1644), a student of Paolo Veronese🎨 (1528-1588).
