Francisco de Zurbarán
Contemporary and fellow of Velázquez, Zurbarán stood out in the religious painting, in which his painting reveals a big visual hard and a deep mysticism. It was a representative artist of the Contrarreforma. Influenced in his beginnings by italian painterCaravaggio, his style was evolving to approximate to the mastersmanieristas Italians. His representations move away of the realism of Velázquez and his compositions characterise by a modelling claroscuro with tones sourer.
