Brief Biography-Born in Valencia, Estéban March was a pupil of Pedro Orrente of Murcia. He had in the view of Antonio Palomino, a Touch of Lunacy. He was, however, a superb painter of battles, and for artistic stimulation, he would dress in the attire of a knight in battle. With the accompaniment of military trumpets and drums, he would lay siege to the walls of his studio before addressing his canvas. his most well-known work is The Lord's Supper in San Juan de Mercado church. There is evidence the Italian artists Salvator Rosa and Aniello Falcone may have influenced him.
