Baroque PaintingsBaroque painting originated in Italy and spread north. One of its Italiancreators was Michelangelo da Caravaggio (1565-1609), whose bold andlight-bathed naturalism impressed many northern artists. The Italian influencewas evident in the works of Peter Paul Rubens (1557-1640), a well-knownFlemish artist who chose themes from pagan and Christian literature,illustrating them with human figures involved in dramatic physical action.Ruben also did portraits of Marie de Medicis and Queen Anne, at the Frenchcourt of Louis XIII. Another famous Baroque court painter was Diego Velasquez(1599-1660), whose canvases depict the haughty formality and opulence of theSpanish royal household. A number of Italian women were successful Baroquepainters, including Livonia Fontana (1552-1614), who produced pictures ofmonumental buildings, and Artemesia Gentileschi (1593-1652), a follower ofCaravaggio.
