Salvator Rosa "Witches at their Incantations" originally painted in 1640-46. "Scenes of the occult were rare, though not unknown, in 17th- century Italy. During his years in Florence (1640-9) Rosa produced a number of scenes of witchcraft, of which this (signed) painting is the most ambitious surviving example. It may be the painting referred to in a letter by Rosa of 1666 as having been painted twenty years earlier and one of his finest, and it is probably contemporary with one of Rosa's poems entitled 'The Witch'."
Salvator Rosa was an Italian Baroque painter and printmaker from the 17th century. His wild landscapes and satirical portraits paved the way for romanticism and dark subject matter in fine art. He was active in Naples, Rome and Florence in paint, etchings and playwriting. His unorthodox subject matter (Saul and the Witch of Endor) brought him the label of "Perpetual Rebel".
