López de Arteaga, Sebastian locked

(b Seville, 1610; d Mexico City, 1652).
  • Maria Concepción García Sáiz


(b Seville, 1610; d Mexico City, 1652).

Spanish painter. A pupil of Zurbarán, in 1640 he settled in Mexico, where he went as part of the retinue of the Viceroy, the Marqués de Villena. Although López de Arteaga produced only a limited amount of work in Mexico, he influenced local painters and was probably mainly responsible for introducing the tenebrist style from Seville. His paintings in Mexico include a Crucifixion, an Incredulity of Thomas, a Betrothal of the Virgin, another Crucifixion (1643) and a Stigmatization of St Francis (1650; all Mexico City, Pin. Virreinal).
