Ignacio de Iriarte

1621-1670 Spain/Baroque


Brief Biography-Ignacio de Iriarte of Seville studied at the atelier of Francisco de Herrera, the Elder. He was a co-founder and secretary of the Academia de Bellas Artes in Seville, and he became closely associated with Murillo, who greatly admired his work. Murillo stated that Ignacio drew Landskips by Divine Inspiration. Murillo painted the staffage and people into his landscapes when they worked together. Flemish art had a marked influence on his work, and he was one of only a few Spanish landscape artists of that time. His paintings are in Madrid; however, only a few are extant.
