Biography from Christie's London, King Street:
Please note: Artists not classified as American in our database may have limited biographical data compared to the extensive information about American artists.

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.
