Historical Artist - Gregorio Fern�ndez (1576 - 1636)

Gregorio Fernandez was a Spanish sculptor who began his career in Valladolid in 1605. He was a master of the polychrome wooden statue, much like Juan de Juni. However, Fernandez’s style was more realistic. He belongs to the Castilian school of sculpture, following the style of other great artists like Alonso Berruguete, Juan de Juni, Pompeyo Leoni and Juan de Arfe. After his death, Gregorio Fernández left many pupils who followed his style, but he did not have any significant disciples. He achieved great reputation during his life, a good example of this would be the fact that in his tomb in the convent of the Carmen Calzado a portrait of him was placed, painted by his friend Diego Valentín Díaz, accompanied by a text praising his work.
