Salvator Rosa was an Italian Baroque painter, poet, and master printmaker best known for his dark, bizarre and unorthodox paintings.

Rosa was known as a "perpetual rebel" for creating his now well-known shadow covered night scenes. The Artist's fiery and flamboyant character is documented and lent to his storied reputation in Italy and abroad. As a painter, his "unorthodox and extravagant" paintings of a grotesque nature depicted topics often thought taboo during the era. Rosa's enduring influence was on the Romantic art movement and occult visual art traditions which saw his depictions as truly original.
