Luca Giordano - Italian Artist From Art History

Art History - Historical Artists > G > Luca Giordano


Historical Artist - Luca Giordano (1632 - 1705)

Luca Giordano was thought to have trained with Jusepe de Ribera and was influenced by his dramatic and dark approach to painting. In the late 1650’s, he developed a style similar to that of Pietro da Cortona and Peter Paul Rubens. From 1692 to 1702, Giordano was Spain’s court painter. Giordano has been criticized as being a prolific trader of all styles, and master of none. He has been viewed as a proto-Tiepolo, reanimating that grand manner of Cortona in a style that would brighten with Tiepolo.
