Battistello Caracciolo




Battistello Caracciolo

(b Naples, bapt 7 Dec 1578; d Naples, 1635).

Italian painter. He was one of the greatest Caravaggesque painters and the founder of Neapolitan Caravaggism. His Liberation of St Peter (c. 1615; Naples, Pio Monte della Misericordia) and Christ Washing the Feet of the Disciples (1622; Naples, Certosa di S Martino) are masterpieces of 17th-century Neapolitan art, and attain a powerful and tragic grandeur. Unlike Caravaggio, he also worked in fresco.
