The Immaculate Conception

The Immaculate Conception
Oil on canvas. Second half of the XVII century
Coello, Claudio

This is a significant example of Claudio Coello’s style and one of his finest representations of the Immaculate Conception. It admirably associates grace and delicate modesty with the triumphal emphasis that characterizes depictions of this subject from Madrid in the second half of the century. Its rich, refined and predominately warm color scheme corresponds to Coello’s most powerful period, free

Saint Anthony of Padua
Oil on canvas. Second half of the XVII century
Coello, Claudio

Vestido con el típico sayal de los franciscanos, sujeto por el rústico cordón con los tres nudos significativos de los votos de pobreza, castidad y obediencia. De San Antonio conocemos, a través de los escritos de San Bernardino de Siena, que era de aspecto corpulento y bajo de estatura, pero la iconografía habitual prefirió dulcificar su fisonomía e insistir en la amabilidad o gallardía de su per

The Virgin and Child adored by Saint Louis, King of France
Oil on canvas. Ca. 1665
Coello, Claudio

Surrounded by angels, the Holy Family, with Saint Elizabeth and the infant Saint John, receive Saint Louis, King of France. The background combines architecture and curtains. This work is organized like a large stage set, using the infant Saint John and an adjacent lamb to invite the viewer to participate. The dynamic and complex composition with its brilliant and expansive colors recalls models f

The Triumph of Saint Augustine

Coello, Claudio
The Triumph of Saint Augustine
Oil on canvas. 1664
Coello, Claudio

Raised on a cloud, Saint Augustine (354-430) triumphantly combats Hell and Paganism, symbolised by the dragon and classical sculpture below. The compositional dynamism is emphasised by the sinuous form of the saint’s body, its sense of movement and the group of angels clustered around him, including one on the right that directs its sword against the enemies of religion. The canvas was painted for

The Virgin and Child between the Theological Virtues and Saints
Oil on canvas. 1669
Coello, Claudio
The Virgin and Child between the Theological Virtues and Saints
Oil on canvas. 1669
Coello, Claudio

Various figures of Virtues and saints are grouped around the Virgin and Child, forming an extensive “sacra conversazione”. The infant Saint John the Baptist is easily recognisable, as are Saint Elizabeth of Hungary, Saint Paul, Saint Peter, Saint Francis and Saint Anthony of Padua, all of whom were among the most popular saints in Baroque Spain.

Saint Dominic of Guzmán
Oil on canvas. Ca. 1685
Coello, Claudio
Saint Dominic of Guzmán
Oil on canvas. Ca. 1685
Coello, Claudio

Spanish saint Dominic de Guzmán (1170-1221) founded the Dominican Order, which became one of the most powerful and influential religious groups in Catholic Europe, partially as a result of its defense of orthodoxy through the Inquisition, which was led by Dominican prelates. Claudio Coello made five paintings for their convent of El Rosario in Madrid, one of which is presented here. They we

Father Cabanillas
Oil on canvas. 1689 - 1693
Coello, Claudio
Father Cabanillas
Oil on canvas. 1689 - 1693
Coello, Claudio

This likeness of the Franciscan clergyman is a significant example of elongated bust portraits that are quiet customary in the Western figurative tradition. Such works allow a closer approach to the model’s essential features, reducing but not eliminating accessory elements such as his clothing and a summary depiction of the surrounding space. Rather than overly limiting information on the protago

The Immaculate Conception / Sketch for an Immaculate Virgin and a Saint Ignatius of Loyola
Pencil, Charcoal, White chalk on dark toned paper. Second half of the XVII century
Coello, Claudio

This drawing depicts the Immaculate Conception standing on the crescent of the moon. Her left arm appears outstretched and her right arm across her chest. A group of little angels flutter at her feet. On the reverse side is a light sketch for the Immaculate Virgin herself and another of Saint Ignatius of Loyola that corresponds to the one in the church of Valdemoro. These sketches allow for the at

The Virgin and Child with Saints
Pencil, Grey-brown wash on yellow laid paper. 1669
Coello, Claudio

In an apse-shaped interior on a pedestal, the Virgin is depicted seated with the Christ Child standing on her lap. Saint Anne appears behind her, and to her right the Infant Saint John is drawn with the lamb. To the observer’s right, in the foreground of the composition, Saint Peter and Saint Michael are depicted, and to the left, Saint Francis and Saint Anthony. Behind them, on a platform with ba
