Francisco de Zurbarán shares the podium with Velázquez and Murillo as one the trio of great artists of the Golden Age of Spanish painting in the seventeenth century.

Zurbarán based himself in Seville, like the younger Murillo, at that time a world city and a major entrepot for the New World. His works are seen as archetypally Spanish in their austerity. It is debatable whether his dramatic chiaroscuro is due to the influence of Caravaggio (1571–1610), and the stark simplicity of his work may owe something to the monumental still lives of Sánchez Cotán (1560–1627), and the hyper-realism of Spanish polychrome sculpture.
