In Spain and especially in Madrid baroque paintings show a significant influence of Rubens, both in formal terms and from a technical point of view. The influence excerted by Rubens and his followers was mediated by two channels: firstly by the works of these artists that were kept in Spain and secondly by prints coming from the Spanish Netherlands. Among the artists that initiated this trend in Madrid, Francisco Rizi de Guevara (1614-1685) was one of the most influential since he was appointed royal painter to the Spanish court. The paintings of Rizi deploy an exuberance that can be attributed directly to the influence of Rubens and the use of the colours and the pictorial technique point to a direct study of works of Rubens available in Madrid at that time.
