The Female Saints of Francisco de Zurbarán 1598–1664


Francisco de Zurbarán (Spanish painter, 1598–1664) Saint Apolonia

Spanish painter Francisco de Zurbarán (1598–1664), born at Fuente de Cantos & active mainly in Seville, devoted himself almost entirely to religious works. He worked for churches & monasteries over a wide area of southern Spain and his paintings were also exported to South America. His simple compositions & emotionally direct altarpieces, combining austere naturalism with mystical intensity, made him an ideal Counter-Reformation painter.
