Antonio de Pereda

c. 1610-1678 Spain/Baroque

 

Brief Biography-Antonio de Pereda of Valladolid was born into a family of painters. He was a disciple of Pedro de las Cuevas, noted for his School of Madrid. His "Immaculate Conception" drew the attention of the Count-Duke of Olivares, who placed his work with the highest ranked in the palace of the Buen Retiro, which awarded him many commissions. Pereda painted history and social scenes; however, he later became renowned primarily for still-lifes. His most famous work is the "Knight's Dream," which some recently attributed to Francisco Palacios, but it is still uncertain. He died in Madrid in 1678.
