Jusepe de Ribera (January 12, 1591 - September 2, 1652) was a Spanish Tenebrist painter and printmaker, also known as Jose de Ribera in Spanish and as Giuseppe Ribera in Italian. He was also called by his contemporaries as Lo Spagnoletto the Little Spaniard . Ribera was a leading painter of the Spanish school, although his mature work was all done in Italy. Along with his massive and predominating shadows, he retained a great strength in local coloring. His forms, though ordinary and sometimes coarse, are correct; the impression of his works gloomy and startling. He delighted in subjects of horror. In the early 1630s his style changed away from strong contrasts of dark and light to a more diffused and golden lighting.
This poster is usually printed with a thin white edge border.
