Brief Biography-Ignacio de Iriarte of Seville, was tutored at the atelier of Francisco de Herrera the Elder. He was a co-founder and secretary of the Academia de Bellas Artes in Seville, becoming closely associated with Murillo, who had a great admiration for his work. Murillo stated that, “Ignacio drew Landskips by Divine Inspiration”, When they worked together, Murillo painted the staffage and people into his landscapes. There is a marked influence of Flemish paintings in his work and he was one of only a small number of Spanish landscape artists of that time. His paintings can be viewed in Madrid, however, not many are still extant.
