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.

Frans Hals (Anversa, 1580 - Haarlem, 26 agosto 1666) è stato un pittore Olandese.
Quasi contemporaneo di Rembrandt operò nei Paesi Bassi durante il cosiddetto periodo d'oro della loro pittura.
Da molti considerato secondo solo a Rembrandt stesso in fatto di innovazioni stilistiche, formali e compositive, Frans Hals fu uno dei pittori più prolifici del periodo olandese ed è autore di alcuni tra i più noti ritratti del barocco, divenendo un punto chiave nella storia della fisiognomica.

Hendrick ter Brugghen | Pittore Barocco

Hendrick ter Brugghen (1588-1629) è stato un pittore Olandese.
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.
