Roelas, Juan de las
Juan de las Roelas (hwän dā läs rōā´läs, rōōā´läs), c.1558–1625, Spanish painter of the school of Seville. He is sometimes called the Spanish Tintoretto; there are stylistic analogies between the two. In Seville he was first to combine realism and mysticism, an approach prevalent in 17th-century Spain. His most famous works include Martyrdom of St. Andrew,St. Anne and the Virgin,Pentecost, and Circumcision (in the museums and churches of Seville).
