José de Ribera lo Spagnoletto.

José de Ribera, also known as lo Spagnoletto, (Játiva, Valencia, Spain, 1591 – Naples, Italy, 1652) was an Spanish baroque painter. He was contemporary with Francisco de Zurbarán and Bartolomé Esteban Murillo.

Ribera spawned a school of his own. Italian, Spanish and Flemish painters were engaged in his workshop, and while Rivera was of particular importance to Neapolitan art, great painters, such as Rembrandt and Diego Velázquez, also found him an inspiration. [1]
