Luca Giordano was a Neapolitan painter with various nicknames and as many talents. That's what they called him during his lifetime Luca Fa Presto, which could be translated quickly with Luca. Some believe it was an allusion to his speed of painting. Because Giordano is said to have needed for a large altarpiece less than 2 days. Another theory is that Giordano's father, who was also a painter, had his son make copies of the works of other artists at an early age. In order to drive the son, he should have called him Luca faster and faster. Another nickname of Giordano was Proteus. He got this name because of his ability to imitate the style of almost every artist in perfection. Accordingly, his range of topics was enormously diverse. But most of his work consisted of frescoes and oil paintings that dealt with religious or mythological motives.

Around 1650 Giordano was apprenticed to Jusepe de Ribera , whose style is evident in his early works. After Ribera's death Giordano sought new inspiration, so he went to Rome and Venice. His later works show both Venetian influences, as they were known by Paolo Veronese, as well as influences of Pietro da Cortona's Roman style. In the coming years, Giordano traveled again and again between his hometown of Naples, Venice and also took some assignments in Florence and other northern Italian regions. Around 1692 Giordano went to Spain at the invitation of King Charles II, who later awarded him the title Caballero. During this time he painted many frescoes as well as many paintings that can still be seen in Spanish museums such as the Museo del Prado. Below is the painting "Rubens paints an allegory of peace". After the death of the king in 1702 Giordano returned to Naples and spent his last years there.

In recent years, in Naples, Giordano's style changed significantly. His pictures became easier, which art critics understood as an anticipation of the late Baroque Rococo style. These works influenced artists such as Jean Honore Fragonard well into the 18th century. Among his students were Paolo di Matteis , Nicola Malinconico and Matteo Pacelli. As Giordano traveled extensively throughout his career and his work was so diverse, he influenced not only his own students but also artists like Giovan Battista Langetti , Fillipo Gherardi, Pedro de Calabria, Juan Antonio Boujas and many more. Giordano was married and had at least 10 children. His popularity and zeal had provided him with sufficient funds to provide the children with a good education and a decent dowry to the daughters. © Meisterdrucke
