Luca Giordano 1634 - 1705
Luca Giordano was a late Baroque painter. He was born in Naples in 1634 and his father, Antonio Giordano was also an artist.
He was apprenticed to Jusepe de Ribera and later studied under Pietro da Cortona. Giordano had the nickname Luca Fa Presto (Luke work quickly) given to him because of his fast working style.
He worked mainly in Naples, Venice and Florence but a few of his paintings and altarpieces can be found in the Corsini gallery and in some of the churches around Rome.
For ten years, from 1692 until 1702, he worked as Court Painter for Charles II in Spain.
He returned to Naples in 1702 where he died in 1705 and he was buried in Santa Brigida in Napoli.
