The Virgin and Child with Saints Elizabeth, John the Baptist and Catherine
Oil on canvas. 1624 - 1626
Vouet, Simon

This almost family scene shows the Christ Child and Saint John embracing each other while their respective mothers, Mary and Elizabeth, look on. The moment is witnessed by Saint Catherine, who accompanies them. She is leaning on a large wooden wheel, which symbolizes her martyrdom. The Lamb in the lower left corner alludes to the Passion of Christ and saddens the moment with its announcement of hi

The Hunt of Meleager
Oil on canvas. 1634 - 1639
Poussin, Nicolas

Until very recently there was total confusion as to the origin of this painting and the circumstances surrounding its entry into the Royal Collection. Its original owner was formerly thought to have been Cassiano dal Pozzo, an erudite Italian contemporary of Nicolas Poussin whose collection did, indeed, include a work with similar characteristics. Since 2005, however, the generally accepted hypoth

Landscape with Ruins
Oil on canvas. 1642
Poussin, Nicolas

The significance of this landscape remains obscure. It depicts two figures in the foreground, one pointing to a winding path flanked by funerary monuments and leading to a group of temples or a necropolis. The painting was in the collection of the painter Carlo Maratta.

Bacchanal
Oil on canvas. 1625 - 1626
Poussin, Nicolas

This is a traditional scene from the iconography of Bacchus, the Roman god of wine. It depicts his meeting with Ariadne on the island of Naxos. The god rides a chariot pulled by lions, and helps his future wife, who was abandoned by Theseus, to climb aboard (Ovid, Metamorphoses, VIII). They are accompanied by Bacchus´s habitual retinue of bacchants, satyrs and menads, ledy by Silenus on a donkey.

Landscape with Buildings
Oil on canvas. 1648 - 1651
Poussin, Nicolas

A valley, crossed by a river on whose banks are several buildings, is framed by trees and mountains on the horizon. In the foreground are three seated figures and two more accompanied by horses. This may be a representation of the trip to Athens by the cynical philosopher, Diogenes of Sinope (fourth century B.C.), who was a classical example of honesty and rebellion against civilization´s ar

Poussin, Nicolas
Parnassus
Oil on canvas. 1630 - 1631
Poussin, Nicolas

Parnassus, the mythological mountain of Apollo and the Muses is the scene for a celebration of the Arts, especially Poetry. Apollo offers the nectar of the gods to a poet, probably Homer, who is crowned with a laurel wreath by Calliope, the muse of epic poetry. The putti in the foreground offer the poets the water of inspiration that flows from the spring of Castalia, personified by the nude woman

Portrait of a Girl with a Pigeon
Oil on canvas. Ca. 1620
Vouet, Simon

A smiling girl, seemingly aged around ten, looks out at the viewer, fully engaging our attention. Her relaxed pose contrasts with the rigid conventions of portraiture of this period. The figure is surprisingly similar to the naked girl that represents Beauty in the painting Time defeated by Hope and Beauty by the same artist, also on display in this gallery, in which she seems older, thus proving

This tabletop has a geometrical decoration with a large central oval framed by two volutes. The border combines ovals and diamonds with floral motifs. A similar type of decoration is to be found on the walls of a number of seventeeth-century Roman chapels.
