The exhibition is accompanied by a catalogue with two essays plus an introduction by the curator, Álvaro Soler del Campo, Chief Curator of the Royal Armoury, Madrid (Patrimonio Nacional).

The two essays in the catalogue are fundamental for an understanding of the development and function of portraits based on the collection of the Royal Armoury in Madrid. They have been written by Miguel Falomir, Head of the Department of the Italian Painting at the Prado, and by Carmen García-Frías.

The catalogue also contains entries for all the works on display. They set out the context in which the works were made, the patron, intended use of the work and its principal artistic merits. Each entry has a summary bibliography.
