Juan Correa, activo 1674 - 1739

Juan Correa, Mexican painter, flourished during the early part of the 18th century. His paintings are specially remarkable for their fine, broad composition, expression, and life-like figures, as well as for their good perspective and effective groupings. But he is not a good colorist. They are generally large, like those he painted for the cathedral of the City of Mexico. Correa was an excellent teacher of his art, and among his pupils are the celebrated Cabrera and Ibarra.
