Antonio Castrejon: life and works

By Gwylym Owen

Antonio Castrejon (1625–1690) was a Spanish painter.

Castrejon was born at Madrid in 1625. He was a pupil of Francisco Fernandez, and possessed more knack in colouring than capacity in drawing. His best works are of little dimensions, but he sometimes painted large altar-pieces, as the Martyrdom of Santa Lucia, in the church of San Felipe el Real at Madrid, which was destroyed by fire in 1718. He painted figures in the architectural pieces of Roque Ponce and of Josef Garcia, and groups within the flower-garlands of Gabriel de la Corte. He died at Madrid in 1690.
