Massimo Stanzione

c. 1586-c. 1656

Neapolitan School. Born 1585; died 1656. Whether or not he studied, as has been said, with the Neapolitan artists Santafede and Caracciolo, it was perhaps chiefly through he latter that he came under the influence of Caravaggio also. Domenichino and Artemisia Gentileschi made strong impressions on him, and his trips to Rome (1617-18 and 1623-25) acquainted him with the interpretation of Caravaggio which was being expressed by artists then active in Rome, such as Saraceni and Vouet.
