(b. 1565, Solsona, d. 1628, Valencia)
Spanish painter. He
was probably trained at the Escorial and during most of the 1580s and
1590s he worked in Madrid. His earlier paintings are Mannerist in character,
notably his first known work, The Nailing to the Cross (Hermitage, St
Petersburg, 1582). By 1599 he was settled in Valencia and there his style
became much more sombre and naturalistic.
