Montañes, Juan Martínez
Juan Martínez Montañes (hwän märtē´nĕth mōntä´nyās), c.1568–1649, Spanish sculptor. He was known for his polychrome figures in wood. Most of his work was done for the churches and convents of Seville, where it still remains. Among his finest works are his highly spiritual and dignified interpretations of the Crucifixion and of the Immaculate Conception (cathedral, Seville). His work influenced the art of Velázquez and of Zurbarán.
