Nunez, Juan

Nunez, Juan an old Spanish painter who flourished at Seville about 1505. He was a scholar of Sanchez de Castro, and probably attained real eminence in his day; but most of his works have been destroyed. There is a picture by him in the cathedral of Seville, in an excellent state of preservation, representing The Body of Christ in the arms of the Virgin, with St. Michael, St. Vincent, and other figures. This work is in the stiff Gothic style: prevalent at that time; but it deserves praise for its rich and beautiful draperies.
