Francisco de Zurbaran (November 7, 1598 - August 27, 1664) was a Spanish Baroque painter who specialized in naturalistic portraits of religious figures. A contemporary of Velasquez, his use of chiaroscuro in paintings of monks, nuns and martyrs won him the moniker "Spanish Caravaggio."

Zurbaran was born at Fuente de Cantos in Extremadura, a province on the border with Portugal. His father was a haberdasher who sent his son, then aged 16, to Seville to work as an apprentice to the artist Pedro Dia
