During his career, Luca Giordano created more than 1,000 paintings and frescoes for Catholic churches. He was noted for his incredible rapidity of work, for which among his contemporaries he was nicknamed Luca Fa Presto, which means "fast" in Italian. Giordano put the painting on stream, hiring in his workshop a lot of students. Even after the master's death, his pupils completed orders for several decades based on sketches created by Giordano.
In 1692 he was invited to Spain by King Charles II, and for the next 10 years the painter worked for the rulers of Madrid.
Today Giordano's masterpieces adorn dozens of museums in Europe.
Jan Gossaert was a French-speaking painter from the Low Countries also known as Jan Mabuse (the name he adopted from his birthplace, Maubeuge) or Jennyn van Hennegouwe (Hainaut), as he called himself when he matriculated in the Guild of Saint Luke, at Antwerp, in 1503. He was one of the first painters of Dutch and Flemish Renaissance painting to visit Italy and Rome, which he did in 1508–09, and a leader of the style known as Romanism, which brought elements of Italian Renaissance painting to the north, sometimes with a rather awkward effect. He achieved fame across at least northern Europe, and painted religious subjects, including large altarpieces, but also portraits and mythological subjects, including some nudity.
