Abstract

"A late-16th century Venetian atelier: the will of the painter Rocco da San Silvestro (ca 1523–1602)" The painter Rocco da San Silvestro (circa 1523–1602) who, according to Ridolfi, was the master of the more famous Leonardo Corona (circa 1552-1596), was until recently an almost legendary figure. In recent times, however, it has been possible to reconstruct his biography, at least in part, and to identify various important relationships, the most notable of which was with the Antwerp-born painter Gaspar Rem. The discovery of Rocco’s will, preserved in the State Archives of Venice, has made it possible to add several further pieces to the puzzle and in particular to form an idea of his atelier, in which he kept some works by several foreign artists – or “foresti”, to use the Venetian term – (including Dürer and Brueghel the Elder), enabling us to advance several other hypotheses regarding San Silvestro’s business and the privileged position he held in the art markets north of the Alps.
