He is believed to be answerable for mainly religious art, but after that painted portraits upon commission. He sometime painted from classical sources, often setting the figures in modern-dress, or a contemporary domestic setting. In his lifetime he was successful; he had a large workshop, his appear in was sold internationally and he was especially popular in Spain.
