The Riva degli Schiavoni in Venice
Oil on canvas. 1873
Rico y Ortega, Martín
The Riva degli Schiavoni in Venice
Oil on canvas. 1873
Rico y Ortega, Martín

Venice was the predominant subject of most of Rico’s paintings, since he spent the summer months there for over thirty years. He was particularly interested in the bustling commercial life of the docks. Despite its apparent realism, this is an adapted view of Venice; Rico has removed the imposing prison building, which prompted the legend of the famous Bridge of Sighs. Legado de

The Model Aline Masson
Oil on panel. Ca. 1876
Madrazo y Garreta, Raimundo de

Aline Masson was Madrazo’s favourite model for genre paintings. Her heavy-lidded gaze and slightly defiant attitude convey the frivolous atmosphere of Paris, where Madrazo’s portraits met with great acclaim. Here, the artist displays his technical skill in using a reduced range of colours, applied with deft, confident brushstrokes.

Josefa Manzanedo e Intentas de Mitjans, 2nd Marchioness of Manzanedo

Meissonier, Jean-Louis-Ernest
Josefa Manzanedo e Intentas de Mitjans, 2nd Marchioness of Manzanedo
Oil on canvas. 1872
Meissonier, Jean-Louis-Ernest

The sitter, a leading figure in Parisian social circles, was the daughter of the Duke of Santoña (the origin of whose fortune came, above all, from the slave trade and real estate investments), from whom she inherited the title of Marchioness of Manzanedo. This small canvas is one of the few female portraits painted by Meissonier, who displays his skill in the almost-miniaturist rendering o

Doorway of a House in Toledo
Oil on panel. 1875 - 1878
Rico y Ortega, Martín
Doorway of a House in Toledo
Oil on panel. 1875 - 1878
Rico y Ortega, Martín

Rico combines his interest in the old buildings of Toledo, a city that he visited in 1875, with the picturesque motif of donkeys bearing water pitchers. His composition is based on various rapid, deft sketches that he made in one of his notebooks. The principal focus of interest is the effect of the dazzling sunlight of Toledo as it falls on the house façades.

The Pearl and the Wave

Baudry, Paul
The Pearl and the Wave
Oil on canvas. 1862
Baudry, Paul

An intensely sensual female nude that presents the figure in the form of a pearl enclosed in its box, the ocean, which may be an allusion to the birth of Venus. Presented at the Paris Salon of 1863, this work was one of the most appreciated female nudes of Second Empire Paris, despite the strong criticism it received as an exultantly erotic work lacking any moral modesty. Its first owner was the E

La Tirana
Oil on canvas. Ca. 1875
Casado del Alisal, José

This painting features a young and attractive “Manola” [woman of the people, particularly in Madrid] reminiscent of the famous actress nicknamed “the Tyrant” portrayed by Goya. Slightly recumbent on a finely-carved couch, she is wearing a striking blue gold-embroidered short jacket. The picture is highly charged with sensuality and eroticism, embodied through her languid gaze, her gesture of cover

Josefa Manzanedo e Intentas de Mitjans, 2nd Marchioness of Manzanedo
Oil on panel. 1875
Madrazo y Garreta, Raimundo de

After establishing himself in Paris as portrait painter to the elegant and cosmopolitan high society of his time, Raimundo de Madrazo cultivated a particularly abundant clientele among the great ladies of the French capital. A posterior trip to America allowed him to expand his client base to include the leading families of New York. In the 1870s, when Raimundo was beginning to make a place for hi

The Actress María Guerrero as Doña Inés
Oil on canvas. 1891
Madrazo y Garreta, Raimundo de

This portrait is one of the most beautiful examples of the great actress María Guerrero’s (1867-1928) lifelong obsession with her own image. She began having her portrait painted by the most famous painters of her time while still an infant. This fixation was favored by her father’s friendship with many of those artists, and as a result, the Museo del Prado has several splendid likeness of

The Mouth of the Bidasoa

The Mouth of the Bidasoa
Oil on canvas. 1872
Rico y Ortega, Martín

A serene landscape with the Bidasoa River´s mouth at the Cantabrian Sea, as seen from the sands of Fuenterrabía. This landscape, along with sixteen other works, was presented by Rico at the Universal Exhibition of 1878 in Paris, where it was qualified as “spiritual, compositions that appear to have been made with drops of light on the end of the brush.” This work entered the Prado Museum as

The Infanta Paz de Borbón
Oil on canvas. 1894
Lenbach, Franz-Seraph Von

Herself noted as a painter, Alfonso XII’s sister was a leading patron of the arts, especially after marrying to Prince Ludwig Ferdinand of Bavaria and taking up residence in Munich. The city’s artistic activity was dominated for several decades by Lenbach, William II’s court portraitist, who was granted a noble title for his outstanding achievements. In this portrait, the painter blends historical

Ramón de Errazu
Oil on panel. 1879
Madrazo y Garreta, Raimundo de

This masterpiece by Raimundo de Madrazo represents his mature style in a worldly portrait painted with a personality that transcends his varied and different influences. Made a year before he was awarded first prize at the Universal Exposition of 1878 in Paris, it reveals the confidence of maturity. Moreover, this is a portrait of a very close friend who was also an outstanding collector. Errazu p

Concepción Miramón
Oil on canvas. 1889
Palmaroli y González, Vicente

In this three-quarters portrait, the lady is standing and slightly turned to the left. Her pose, with interlaced fingers, is very relaxed. Concepción Miramón de Duret´s father, General Miramón, was executed by firing squad alongside the Emperor Maximilian on 19 June 1867. She lived in Rome when this portrait was made. Notable in this portrait of the Countess is her lack of jew

La obra es, como indica la inscripción, un estudio del natural para un retrato de gran tamaño que, encargado en 1887 por el Ministerio de Estado, cuyo titular era Segismundo Moret, para que sirviera de modelo a los retratos oficiales de la reina, se conserva en la Embajada de España en París. En éste del Prado, la forma ovalada de la cabeza se resalta con armonía por el peinado, recogido. Los ojos

La Torre de las Damas in the Alhambra, Granada
Oil on canvas. 1871
Rico y Ortega, Martín

This work was painted at a very important moment in Rico’s career, a period spent in direct contact with Fortuny in Granada in 1871 and 1872. He move there towards the end of 1870, but he was already familiar with that city from a stay in 1857 while painting in Sierra Nevada. On November 18 of that year, Fortuny wrote a letter inviting Rico to join him and his brother-in-law, Ricardo de Madrazo. A

A Gypsy
Oil on canvas. 1872
Madrazo y Garreta, Raimundo de

Sobre un fondo cerúleo, de ejecución rápida y desenvuelta, destaca la figura de una gitana de medio cuerpo. Como corresponde al estereotipo racial femenino, es de rostro ovalado, labios carnosos, cabello negro ensortijado y grandes ojos negros. Cubre su talle un mantón rojo, floreado, y una mantilla negra que deja caer sobre sus brazos. Como aderezo, unos claveles en su pelo, zarcillos colgantes y

Allegory of Dance
Marble. Last quarter of the XIX century
Carrier-Belleuse, Albert-Ernest (Circle Of)

A graceful young woman is depicted nude, playing the tambourine and encircled below by a group of mischievous children who dance around her. Particularly virtuoso in its technique, this example of decorative sculpture is based on models by Carrier-Belleuse, who was noted for his idealised nudes.
