Historical Artist - Sebastiano Conca (1680 - 1764)

Sebastiano Conca first studied under Solimena in Naples before moving to Rome in 1706. He developed a polished Rococo style, producing numerous altarpieces, frescoes, historical, and mythological paintings, Conca returned home to Naples in 1752 and continued painting well into his old age. His painting was strongly influenced by the Baroque painter Luca Giordano. He received widespread official acclaim and patronage. His studio was prodigious and he painted frescoes for the Church of Santa Chiara (1752-1754), five canvases for the Chapel in Caserta Palace (now lost), as well as many others including for the Benedictines of Aversa (1761), a History of Saint Francis of Paola for the Sanctuary of Saint Maria di Pozzano of Castellammare di Stabia (1762-1763), and many other altarpieces.
