GRAMATICA, Antiveduto
(b. ca. 1571, Roma, d. 1626, Roma)

Denial of St Peter

Oil on canvas, 98 x 135 cm
Private collection

This painting encompasses all the Caravaggesque qualities that came to define Antiveduto's dramatic and realist output of work. The sharp light that falls across the maid, the distinct gesturing of the protagonists, and the precise detail with which the fabrics, the faces and the hands are rendered, are in the distinctive style of Antiveduto.
