Jusepe de Ribera


Jusepe de Ribera

(b Jativa, Valencia, bapt 17 Feb 1591; d Naples, 3 Sept 1652).

Spanish painter and printmaker, active in Italy. He was one of the most important figures in European painting in the 17th century and one of the major artists of the Counter-Reformation. Though Spanish, he spent his entire career in Italy, and his evolution reflected developments in Italian art at that time. His first works show the influence of northern followers of Caravaggio active in Rome. He subsequently incorporated elements of Venetian art and, in his last works, combined all the sensual and colourist opulence of both Venice and Flanders, creating new and highly personal compositions.
