Strozzi, Bernardo (bernär'dō
strôt'tsē) [key], 1581–1644, Italian
painter, b. Genoa. He is considered one of
the greatest of the generation of early
17th-century Italian artists who made the
transition from the mannerist to the baroque
style. In 1598, Bernardo Strozzi became a Capuchin
monk, thus earning the names “Il Cappucino”
and later “Il Prete Genovese.” Strozzi was influenced by
Rubens paintings, who in
1607 was in Genoa. His own
influence on the painting of Genoa was very
great. Early Bernardo Strozzi paintings were marked by strong
chiaroscuro (high-contrast) effects, as in
his St. Augustine Washing Christ's Feet
(Genoa). But his palette had begun to
lighten when he went to Venice in 1630.
Bernardo Strozzi became one of the artists who rekindled the
spirit of great painting in Venice. Examples
of Bernardo Strozzi paintings are in the major European museums and in
Baltimore, Cleveland, and the Metropolitan Museum.
|Bernardo Strozzi was successful and prolific in both Genoa and Venice, painting portraits and allegorical and genre scenes (often of musicians) as well as religious paintings. The sensuous richness of his style was influenced by Rubens (who worked in Genoa), but Bernardo Strozzi oil painting is highly distinctive, with an air of refinement and tenderness that recalls Van Dyck (who also worked in Genoa). The Ligurian school was molded through its contacts first with Rubens, which led to him using rich, thick colours applied with wide brushstrokes, and later with Van Dyck, whose refined elegance added its own influence.|
|His interpretation of these trends was highly original and combined with his thorough knowledge of other currents in art, from the Lombard school to the diffusion of Caravaggio's style.|
He produced a
splendid series of frescos, altarpieces, and
paintings for private collectors in Genoa.
Bernardo Strozzi paintings were an immediate success in Venice, partly because Palma the Younger had recently died and there was a lack of native painters. From then on, with two other 'foreigners', Feti and Lys, Bernardo Strozzi kept alive the painterly tradition of the 16th century. He could be considered one of the most important painters in seventeenth-century Venice. Apart from religious paintings, Bernardo Strozzi was also much admired for the fleshy but lively portraits he painted.
