Lecture by Todd Olson, professor, early modern art, University of California, Berkeley Jusepe de Ribera transferred his compositional experi- ments in rotation, reversal, and repetition from his etch- ings to his drawings and paintings. In a 1649 pen and wash drawing of the martyrdom of St. Bartholomew, who was known as an apostle of the Indies, Ribera revisited and reversed the composition of a 1624 etching in the Meadows collection depicting the flaying of the saint. Through Ribera’s exploration of the persistence and migration of images in his studio practice, the artist addressed the anxieties of resemblances between colonial Latin America, known as the “other Indies,” and Naples.
