JUAREZ, Jose (wah'-reth), Mexican painter, lived in the 17th century. The information regarding his birth and death is very uncertain, nor is it known whether he was a relative of Luis, the elder painter of that name. Two of his paintings are signed in 1642 and 1698 respectively. His works are noted for the elegant position of the figures, vigorous tone, and delicacy of execution. The two most noteworthy are in the academy of San Carlos, and arc "The Adoration of the Three Magi" and " The Martyrdom of St. Justo and St. Pastor." There is also at the above-mentioned academy another of his paintings, "Heavenly Vision of St. Francis," which, although not equal to the others, is an excellent work.--His nephews, Juan and Nicolas Rodriguez, who lived toward the end of the 17th and the beginning of the 18th century, were painters, but never reached the fame of either their uncle or Luis Juarez. Nicolas Rodriguez, a priest of some means, never exercised his art as a profession. His best painting, marked 1690, is a "Saint Gertrude" kneeling before an altar, offering her heart to God, and has rich coloring worthy of the Venetian school.
