Biography:
Born in Genoa, Giovanni Benedetto Castiglione first trained there under local artist who were influenced by Mannerism, Caravaggism, and the work of Peter Paul Rubens. In 1621, Castiglione started working in Anthony van Dyckís studio. In his early work, he favored animal paintings but also produced portraits, landscapes, and historical pieces. Castiglione moved to Rome in 1634 and remained there for a decade. He returned to Genoa and began working for the Mantuan court alongside his idol Rubens in 1648. During this period, Castiglione was inspired by Domenico Fetti and Rembrandtís etchings. He is also credited with the printmaking technique, the monotype. Castiglioneís final works were expressive and intense much like the work of Gian Lorenzo Bernini.
