Charon crossing the Styx
Oil on panel. 1520 - 1524
Patinir, Joachim

In addition to the originality of its subject, this painting by Patinir is also remarkable for its unusual composition within Patinir`s oeuvre. The artist has divided the space vertically into three zones, one on either side and the third occupied by the broad river in the centre, on whose opaque and mirror-like surface Charon steers his boat. For the iconography of this subject, Patinir draws tog

The Rape of Proserpine
Oil on canvas. 1636 - 1637
Rubens, Peter Paul -Painter- (And Workshop)

Proserpine, daughter of the earth goddess Ceres, was kidnapped by Pluto, the god of the underworld. Despite the resistance put up by Minerva, Venus and Diana, their relationship would blossom into love, as revealed by the presence of the cupids holding the chariot reigns and urging the horses on. This story of passion was part of the decoration of the Torre de la Parada.

Hercules and Cerberus
Oil on panel. 1636 - 1637
Rubens, Peter Paul

The mythological hero fights against the fearful three-headed dog that guards the Underworld while two figures, possibly the Underworld´s titular gods, Pluto and Proserpina, watch the scene in terror. Rubens was directly inspired by Ovid´s Metamorphoses in his depiction of this test of Hercules, though it is also described in other classical texts, such as Homer´s Iliad and Odyssey. This is one of

Orpheus and Eurydice in the Underworld
Oil on canvas. 1652
Fris, Pieter

This mythological scene is one of the three currently-known paintings by Pieter Fris. It depicts the moment when Orpheus, having descended into the realm of darkness to search for his wife Eurydice, killed by a snake bite, embraces her in the presence of Persephone and Hades, who has allowed him to rescue her from the Underworld and return her to life, provided he does not look back until he reach

Olympus. The Battle of the Giants
Oil on canvas. 1767 - 1768
Bayeu, Francisco

Francisco Bayeu, who came from minor nobility, trained in Zaragoza under José Luzán (who, years later, would also teach Francisco de Goya). However, a decisive change in the young Bayeu´s style came about under the influence of Antonio González Velázquez (1723-93), who visited Zaragoza soon after returning from Italy in 1752, carrying models and drawings by his Italian

Pluto carrying off Persephone in his chariot
Pencil, Pencil ground, Grey-brown ink on paper. XVI century
Anonymous

This is one of the weakest drawings in the series, the transition between the two foreground figures and the background being especially poor. The drawing on which the Prado copy was based, the whereabouts of which are unknown to the writer, conflates into a single upright composition—the two halves of a celebrated horizontal rendering of the subject, formerly in the Suida Manning collection and n

An even feebler studio version of the Prado drawing, with the composition cut at the top and sides but otherwise corresponding in all details, is in the Codex Bonola, the Muzeum Narodowe, Warsaw.
