Navarrette, Juan Fernandez
Navarrette, Juan Fernandez surnamed El Mudo (i.e., the mute), a Spanish artist of sacred subjects, was born at Logrofio in 1526. Losing both his power of speech and sense of hearing, he studied painting in the monastery of the Hieronymites at Estrella, and afterwards in Italy as a pupil of Titian. He died about 1575. All his works are on sacred subjects, and nearly all of them are preserved in the Escurial.
