The Empress (1503-1539) wears a luxurious ornamental skirt with grutesco decorations in fashion during the fifteen thirties. Carlos V commissioned Leone Leoni to make this statue along with other portraits of the Hapsburgs. It was carried out years after Isabel´s death, and the artist based it on certain portraits by Titian (P415, for example). Stylistically, it is inspired by the statue of Margar

Maria of Hungary
Italian marble. 1553 - 1555
Leoni, Leone; Leoni, Pompeo

Somewhat larger than life-sized, Maria of Hungary appears wearing a widow´s headdress, in a manner very similar to the full-length sculpture Leone Leoni also made of her (E00263), which is in the Prado Museum as well. The pedestal is made from the same piece of marble, with various Renaissance decorations, including garlands, sphinxes, inverted pyramids and a winged seraph on the front. Leoni made

Empress Isabel
Carrara marble. 1572
Leoni, Pompeo

Somewhat larger than life-sized, this statue of Isabel of Portugal (1503-1539) was made after her death. The empress wears an embroidered dress, following the guidelines of the bronze statue (E00274) made earlier by Leone Leoni, the artist´s father. Nevertheless, his son Pompeo approaches the present work with less interest in the details. Besides a paternal influence, this work is clearly related

The bust of Isabel of Portugal (1503-1539) is represented in profile in a profusely sculpted frame, just like the relief carving of Emperor Carlos V (E00291) that is paired with this one. Beginning with the image of the Empress appearing on medals he, himself, has crafted at an earlier date, Leoni represents her with the same clothing and jewels. These are repeated in various of his works and cons

Alabaster. Second half of the XVI century
Leoni, Pompeo (Attributed To)

This life-size bust of Felipe II (1527-1598) has a breastplate, a gorget and a cord with the Golden Fleece as its only ornamental elements. The lower part ends in a winged figurehead. The polished surface and the head´s details raise doubts as to which member of the Leoni family made this work, and some consideration has been given to the possibility that it was made by a marble cutter´s workshop

The Golden Fleece hanging on his chest, the sword in his right hand and the robes he gathers with his left, complete the symbols of his royal authority. The base of this sculpture bears a helmet with fantastic motives on which the Emperor rests his leg, behind the imperial eagle. This image i
