Johannes Bosboom would have been one of the leading landscape painters of his time - his sketches and watercolours bear witness to this fact - if he had not preferred to paint churches, taking up in the 19th century the Dutch tradition of the Saenredam School. Religious faith was his inspiration for first-rate paintings. When still very young - at the age of 14 - he began to frequent the studio of the master Bartholomeus Johannes van Hove, who employed him, together with his son Huib van Hove and Sam Verveer, to paint scenery for the Amsterdam Opera. It was there that he developed his marked taste for architectural paintings, although the first work to establish his budding reputation was not of this genre. In 1836, when scarcely 19 years old, he won the gold medal of the Société Félix Méritis for a ...

For the Sala del Consistorio he painted four pictures of ...

Alonso Cano is one of the most interesting figures in Spanish art because of his universality. Like Michelangelo he was a painter, sculptor and architect and it is truly difficult to decide in which of these three art forms he excelled the most. He was the son of a sculptor-cabinet maker who constructed reredos. He was baptised in Granada on 19th March 1601 and studied firstly with his father, then in Seville where his family had settled in 1615. His masters were Francisco Pacheco who was also the master of Velázquez and Juan del Castillo who would in turn tutor the child Murillo.
