(b. 1616, Napoli, d. ca. 1656, Napoli)

St John the Evangelist

Oil on canvas, 93 x 83 cm
Private collection

This painting probably once belonged to a larger series of apostles or saints. Ribera's influence in the conception is evident and Cavallino would certainly have had firsthand knowledge of the former's series of apostles dating from the 1630s.
