Manoel da Costa Ataíde, the greatest painter of the Brazilian Baroque, born and buried in Mariana, son of Portuguese, until the due time had no portrait of her figure. To create this picture I took as reference a painting of Saint Luke, Protector of painters, on the Church Bom Jesus do Serro and the figure of King David of the lining of the Church Saint Francis of Assisi in Ouro Preto. Both figures are very similar to each other and took me to assume they are portraits of Ataíde. The San Lucas of the Saw was painted by a follower of Ataíde who certainly wanted to do a tribute to the master by putting the image of the Holy figure of the artist. Already King David of the lining of the San Francisco church of Ouro Preto was painted by own Ataíde and many historians assume is his self-portrait. Check below:
