He was a disciple of the painter Pedro Orrente, and painted in the style of Jusepe Ribera. He is best known as a "battle painter" (see for example, Aniello Falcone). He is described as having an eccentric and erratic personality, if not lunatic.

He would work himself into a fury with music before painting. His marriage and home-life was equally disordered.
