Giordano was one of the most important artists in Naples. He gradually moved away from the dark manner of early Neapolitan painting exemplified by Caravaggio and Jusepe de Ribera, and introduced a new sense of light, colour and dramatic movement into his compositions. His distinctive Neapolitan Baroque style can be seen in a vast number of altarpieces, mythological paintings and decorative frescoes in palaces and churches in Naples.
