Massimo Stanzione


(b
?Orta di Atella, nr Caserta, ?1585; d ?Naples, ?1656).

Italian painter. Primarily a painter of altarpieces and frescoes, his large production and vast following of students and imitators made him perhaps the leading Neapolitan painter in the first half of the 17th century. He was known as the great rival of Jusepe de Ribera, and for most of the 1630s and 1640s he and Ribera dominated painting in Naples. Stanzione’s rich colour and idealized naturalism, for which he was called ‘il Guido Reni napoletano’, definitively influenced numerous local artists and remained discernible in the earliest works (1670s) of Francesco Solimena. Only a few portraits and mythological paintings by Stanzione are known, although inventories drawn up in the 17th and 18th centuries of collections in Naples show that they were once very numerous.
