Giuseppe Maria Crespi was an Italian painter of the Baroque period, but in the course of his artistic development he broke drastically with academic traditions to develop a style unparalleled for his time. Together with painters such as Giambattista Pittoni, Giovanni Battista Tiepolo, Giovanni Battista Piazzetta, Canaletto and Francesco Guardi, he is one of the Old Masters of his era. Crespi was a versatile painter. Among other things he painted religious motifs and portraits. Today, however, he is mainly known for his various genre paintings. Crespi's nickname was Lo Spagnuolo (The Spanish). He owed this name to his distinctive style of dress. For he liked to wear tight clothes. This style was typical of Spanish fashion taste, but rather unusual for Italians.

Crespi was born in Bologna and was therefore primarily a representative of the Bolognese school. He began his artistic training at the age of 12 with Angelo Michele Toni. He then went on to train for another 3 years with Domenico Maria Canuti. He then worked for a few years in Carlo Cignani's studio until he left Bologna. Afterwards Crespi worked only independently in his own studio. Initially influenced by the High Baroque Classicism of his teachers, Crespi's attitude towards art and his style changed when he travelled to Venice and other northern Italian cities. The flowing style of the early baroque fascinated him and he began to develop his own version of this art form. However, Crespi did not seem to have much love for Rome and missed travelling to Rome for the rest of his life. At a young age he even met the Roman painter Carlo Maratta or Maratti in Bologna and declined his invitation to visit him in Rome.

Crespi's most famous works include paintings like the Flea Seekers, which is a typical example of his genre paintings. He liked to choose motifs that showed simple and poor people in their everyday life. Crespi is also said to have used a camera obscura as an aid in his studio. During his lifetime, Crespi's reputation was not the same for everyone. In his home town of Bologna he had hardly any followers worth mentioning. The German painter Anton Raphael Mengs , who was then based in Italy, complained that Crespi was too capricious and demanded his expulsion from the Bolognese school. In those days, Italy paid considerably more attention to works with religious and mythological motifs or portraits of great personalities, while there was not much left for genre painting. Nevertheless, some artists visited Crespi's studio to learn from him. Among them were Antonio Gionima and Giovanni Francesco Braccioli. Crespi is also said to have had a great influence on the Venetians Giovanni Battista Piazzetta and Pietro Longhi. In the case of Piazzatti, however, it is not exactly documented when and whether he really went to Crespi for his apprenticeship. After the death of his wife, Crespi retreated very much and is said to have left his house in Bologna only to go to mass daily. He died at the age of 82. © Meisterdrucke
