Jusepe de Ribera

Spanish painter and printmaker, active Italy

Brief biography, in most instances from the Union List of Artist Names® Online:
Ribera is considered one of the most important figures in European painting in the 17th century and the Counter-Reformation. He was Spanish, but spent nearly his entire career in Italy. He was initially influenced by followers of Caravaggio who were active in Rome; he later incorporated stylistic innovations of Venice and Flanders in his own highly personal compositions.
