(Still life with pears by Luis Meléndez)
Meléndez was born in Naples in 1716 and the family moved back to Madrid, Spain when Luis was one year old.
Unlike most of the 17th-century masters Meléndez subject matter is presented physically closer to the viewer, at a lower vantage point, encouraging the spectator to study the objects for themselves. The use of strong lighting to bring out the volume of the objects enhanced his extraordinary descriptive skill.
Learn more about Meléndez’ s life and his painting method on our course starting on February 11.
