  Alonso Cano
Cano went to Madrid in 1637, and through the influence of the Duke of Olivarez and of Velasques, but chiefly because of his own merit, was made Master of the Royal Works, Painter to the King, and first in rank among the instructors of Don Balthasar Carlos.
Cano was a greater sculptor than painter, but he would have attained fame as a painter even had he never worked in marble.
Cano led an exemplary life, his great fault being his ungovernable temper; he was industrious, studious, and very generous.
