Antonio Arias Fernandez

 

 

Arias Fernández Antonio

(b Madrid, c. 1614; d Madrid, 1684). Spanish painter. He trained in Madrid with Pedro de las Cuevas, an excellent teacher who instructed many contemporary painters. Arias was a precocious artist; he painted the altarpiece (destr.) of the Carmelitas Calzados in Toledo at the age of 14. In 1639 he collaborated with other painters of his generation in the decoration of the salón grande, or Sala de las Comedias, in the Alcázar, Madrid. His painting of Charles V and Philip II, Kings of Spain (1639; Madrid, Prado, on dep. U. Granada) shows his individual style, which is sculptural, with firmly drawn outlines and broad areas of light colours, all of which is archaic in character.
