Berruguete

 

a family of Spanish artists.

Pedro Berruguete. Born circa 1450 (?), in Paredes de Nava; died 1504, in Palencia. Painter. Between 1475 and 1482, Pedro Berruguete worked in Urbino (Italy), and from 1483, in Spain. His paintings (scenes from the life of St. Thomas, Prado Museum, Madrid) combine the knowledge of scientific perspective and vivacity of observation with static poses in the medieval manner and, at times, a diversity of scale in the treatment of figures.

Alonso Berruguete. Born circa 1486, in Paredes de Nava; died Sept. 13 (or 26), 1561, in Toledo. Sculptor, architect, and painter. Son and pupil of Pedro Berruguete, Alonso studied in Italy with Michelangelo (c. 1504–17). In 1518 he began working in Spain. His sculpture (mainly altarpieces) is expressive and highly emotional, which was typical of 16th-century Spanish art.
