In Italien Karriere machen

Der flämische Maler Michele Desubleo zwischen Rom, Bologna und Venedig (ca. 1624-1664)

The Flemish painter Michele Desubleo (* 1601, Maubeuge; † 1676, Parma) had a successful career in Italy. In Rome, Bologna and Venice, he established contacts with some of the most renowned painters and art collectors of his time and secured honourable commissions. He thus represents a special case of an immigrant painter. However, the artistic recognition he received during his lifetime could not prevent Desubleo’s name from rapidly disappearing from art historical literature after his death.

This monograph explores for the first time the complex mechanisms that led to the success and oblivion of a foreign painter in 17th century Italy. The study reveals the multi-faceted picture of a gifted artist and traces his unusual rise far from official career paths.
