Pereyra, Diego

Pereyra, Diego a Portuguese painter, was born about the year 1570. Very little is known concerning his life. He died in the year 1640, in the house of a nobleman where he spent his last days. Pereyra had a rare talent for painting conflagration and infernal scenes. He often painted the Burning of Troy and the Overthrow of Sodom, but in each case in a different manner. He excelled in painting pictures of fruit and flowers; also rural scenes illuminated by the radiance of torches or the lightning's flash. His landscapes are painted in a spirited style, ornamented with small figures in excellent taste.
