Claudio Coello

Claudio Coello ( born March 2, 1642 Madrid, † April 20, 1693 ) was a Spanish painter.

Coello was a pupil of Francisco Rizi. He earned a great reputation, but was obscured by Luca Giordano's arrival, which ushered in the period of decline of Spanish art and died on April 20, 1693 in Madrid of grief about it.
