Juan de Zurbarán

Loading

""

Juan de Zurbarán (1620-1649) was a Spanish painter. Born in Llerena, he first trained under his father, painter Francisco de Zurbarán. When he was nine years old, his family moved to Seville, where his father became immensely popular in the arts community. Not much is known about Zurbarán’s paintings today, as they are very rare; less than twenty paintings have been attributed to him, with only three being signed. It has been recounted that he made paintings with religious subjects, as his father did, but these either did not survive or have yet to be discovered. Today he is known as a still-life painter who was crucial to the creation of the still-life practices of the creative boom in Spain during the 15th and 16th centuries. Juan de Zurbarán’s career was short-lived, however, as he passed away at 29, a victim of the Great Plague of Seville.
