Francisco de Zurbaran (November 7, 1598 – August 27, 1664) was a Spanish painter.  He is known primarily for his religious paintings depicting monks, nuns, and martyrs, and for his still-lifes.  Zurbaran gained the nickname Spanish Caravaggio, owing to the forceful, realistic use of chiaroscuro* in which he excelled.

He was born at Fuente de Cantos in Extremadura, the son of Luis Zurbarán, a haberdasher, and his wife, Isabel Márquez.  In childhood he set about copying (showing 500 of 4890 characters).
