Please note: Artists not classified as American in our database may have limited biographical data compared to the extensive information about American artists.

Bernardo Cavallino was born in Naples in 1616 and died there in 1656, probably during an outbreak of the plague.  Evidence of his training is scant; no reliable account of his character, friends or life survives. His works are widely scattered since he painted small, easily transported pictures rather than large paintings for churches.

He may have had a solid academic training in the studio of Massimo Stanzione.  He also learned from the earthy naturalism of Ribera and from R (showing 500 of 980 characters).
