Giovanni Serodine (Italian, 1600 - 1630)
Serodine was born in Ascona, but by about 1620 was working in Rome. There he was greatly influenced by Caravaggio’s work, especially his use of unidealised figures and strong light and shadow. In the past Serodine’s paintings have been confused with the work of Hendrick Terbrugghen, the great Dutch follower of Caravaggio, but it is unclear whether the two artists ever met. Only about fifteen paintings by Serodine survive, partly because of his early death. All of these date from the 1620s, and display his characteristically vigorous brushwork.
