Francisco de Zurbaran

108 Discovered works of art  •  ID: #13418
Baroque   •   Francisco de Zurbaran @ Wikipedia

At an early age, Zurbaráns' talents showed during his training with the painter Pedromadura Dias de Villanueva in Seville. He financed his living with religious orders and became a painter of Seville. Even after his appointment as royal court painter, Zurbarán remained a painter of silence, who designed his profound works without drama.

No excitement arises from his pictures, no thoughtless movement of the figure personnel is to be discovered. Sacred seriousness, asceticism and a high degree of spirituality characterize his religious works, in keeping with the philosophy of life of the Dominican monks, in which the painter was contracted to produce 21 paintings. Connected in lifelong friendship with Diego Velázquez , he never reached its fame, remained silent as an artist in the background. Confident and calm, just like the pious, awesome women and holy men in his works.

But just this silence casts a spell over the viewer. He spreads his " Agnus Dei ", the Lamb of God, in the picture as if it had just been laid there. The warmth of the dying body is still palpable, and one wishes to reach out to caress the soft curls of the soft fur and pay tribute to the poor bound creature.

Far too late, the work of the naturalistic artist was honored when the still life painters Jean Siméon Chardin or Giorgio Morandi Zurbarán declared their teacher. © Meisterdrucke
