Biography   Claudio Coello


Claudio Coello (2 March 1642 - 20 April 1693) was a Spanish Baroque painter. Influenced by many other artists, including Diego Velázquez who was also of Portuguese descent, Coello is considered the last great Spanish painter of the 17th century.

The son of Faustino Coello, a famous Portuguese sculptor, he was a court painter for Charles II. He worked on many churches and public buildings in Madrid, with his most famous work being in the sacristy of El Escorial, which is filled with portraits of priests and courtiers.

Claudio Coello was of Portuguese parents, but was born at Madrid in 1642.  There he was instructed in the art by Francisco Rizi, and executed while yet in that school an altar-piece for San Placido at Madrid.   ...  Displaying 750 of 4060 characters.
