Alonso Sanchez Coello

 (1531 - 1588)
Alonso Sanchez Coello was active/lived in Spain.  Alonso Coello is known for Portrait painting.

Biography   Alonso Sanchez Coello


Sánchez Coello was one of the most renowned portraitists of his time.  He served as a court painter to Philip II for over thirty years, from 1555 until 1588, continuing the tradition of Titian and Anthonis Mor, with whom he trained, in producing representations of the Habsburgs.

Whilst relatively little is known of his studio practices, and a significant amount of his work was lost in the devastating fires at the Royal Palace of El Pardo in 1604 and the Royal Alcázar in 1734, his reputation as a highly skilled portraitist endures.
