Born Juan Macip, Juanes painted and was greatly influenced by his father, Vincent Macip during the Renaissance.  Father and son contracted jointly for some commissions, such as St Eligius altarpiece (Valencia, S Martin) for the Silversmith’s Guild in 1536.  Between 1547 and Juanes executed the retable at Fuente La Higuera, Valencia in which the influence of his father is apparent.  The compositions of the Birth of the Virgin and the Pieta.

Juanes’s style matured greatly as evidenced by his paintings produced between 1550 and 1560. One important work, includes retables for side alters in the choir of S Nicolas, Valencia belonging to the Woolcarders’  Guild, which depict scenes from the lives of Christ and the Virgin, the miracles of St. Michael and scenes from the Creation.  Each created in 1555  these works show the influence of Leonardo Ad Vinci.  A major work of Juanes is the Virgin of the mystic Marriage of the Venerable Agnesius (c. 1560; Valencia, Mus B.A.)  Two subjects often depicted by Juanes and of which he made many versions, were Salvador mundi (e.g.1560-70, Mus B.A.) and Ecce homo (e.g. 1560-70; Madrid, Prado).

Between 1560-1570 Juanes’s style moved toward the style of Raphael while remaining true to his own convictions.  His most characteristic works of this period are the panels of St Stephen altarpiece  (Madrid, Prado), painted for the parish church of St Esteban, Valencia.  As well as painting religious subjects, Juanes also produced portraits and mythological works.
