The Siesta, or Pompeian Scene
Oil on canvas. 1868
Alma-Tadema, Sir Lawrence

A domestic scene set in classical antiquity. An old man and a youth recline on divans while an attractive young woman plays music on a double flute. Both the clothing and the setting suggest the Greek world, and the motives and clothing are rigorously faithful to archeological discoveries made in the mid nineteenth century. Despite being Dutch by birth, Sir Lawrence Alma cultivated an eclectic per

This work poses two main problems. The first is its assignment to the Buen Retiro group, and the second, directly linked to the first, is its date. In 1961 Marcel G. Roethlisberger noted the painting’s possible link to the palace, but did not consider it one of those works originally commissioned because he was unable to find mention of it in the testament of Charles II.Barbara Von Barghahn did fi

The Crucifixion
Oil on panel. 1509 - 1519
Flandes, Juan de

Documents at Palencia Cathedral cast light on this Crucifixion’s original location -the central row of the main altarpiece at that cathedral- and its author: Juan de Flandes (doc. 1496-1519). They also offer information about this panel between 1509, when that Flemish painter was commissioned to paint it, and 1944, when the Cathedral management sold it. Those same documents indicate that Palencia

The Taking of Christ
Oil on canvas. 1798
Goya y Lucientes, Francisco de

This is a representation of the taking of Christ by Roman soldiers, a scene from the New Testament that marks the beginning of his Passion (Matthew 26, 45-46; Mark 14, 41-52; Luke 22, 45-54; John 18, 1-9). This is a preparatory sketch for the painting that adorns one of the altars at the Sacristy of Toledo Cathedral. Here, Goya´s manner of working is visible: rapid and energetic brushstrokes creat

Recco, Giuseppe

Giuseppe Recco, a member of one of the most famous families of Neapolitan still-life painters in the seventeenth century, was born in Naples on 12 July 1634. His vast output was consistently high in quality and is characterised by a marked cultural eclecticism, taking in a number of different still-life styles, from Spanish to northern European to Roman, with an unusual iconographic versatility.In

This work is part of an apostolate from the Church of Almadrones, Guadalajara, which repeats the model of the Apostolates at Toledo Cathedral and the Museum-House of El Greco in that same city with very few variations. The Museo del Prado has four canvases from this series -The Savior (P02889), Saint James (P02890), Saint Thomas (P02891) and Saint Paul- all of which perceptibly include the partici

Some villagers smoke and chat at the door of a tavern. A woman is coming out the door, carrying the food they were waiting for. On the right, some peasants chat in a friendly manner. The church of a nearby village is visible in the background, and across the plains, another town is visible. Here, Teniers had Lucas van Uden paint the landscape. The latter used a warm evening light derived from his

The Crucified Christ

Velázquez, Diego Rodríguez de Silva y

Stylistically, this work appears to have been made in the early 1630s -soon after the artist returned from Italy- and most authors date it from around 1632. The Apollonian perfection of the anatomy and the figure`s pale complexion recall the neo-Attic character of Guido Reni`s work, but it must have been Velázquez`s intention to imbue the figure with a divine and ineffable beauty, reflectin

The Virgin Dolorosa
Oil on panel. 1560 - 1570
Morales, Luis de

The Virgin Mary, turned slightly to the right, has her hands clasped in an imploring attitude, her gaze absent and her eyes flooded with tears. She wears a bluish-green robe, a violet tunic and a white coif. The iconography of the Mater Dolorosa does not appear in the gospels, but is a creation that emerges from the exaltation of pathos at the end of the Middle Ages. Nevertheless, the episode alwa

The Virgin Mary visits her cousin, Elisabeth, who is pregnant with Saint John, as told in the New Testament (Luke 1, 39-45). That is the moment when the Virgin sings the Magnificat. The two figures can be told apart by their age. Mary is depicted as a young woman while Elizabeth, on the left, is almost an old woman, which emphasizes the miracle of her pregnancy, as the Bible texts have it. The sce

La fe de san José fue probada con el embarazo de María. Como era hombre justo y no quería ponerla en evidencia, resolvió repudiarla en secreto. Así lo había planeado cuando un ángel se le apareció en sueños y le reveló que lo engendrado en ella era obra del Espíritu Santo, renunciando a llevar adelante su primera intención (Mateo 1: 19-24).En la pintura, san José ocupa el primer plano, recostado y

The first Poesie presented to Prince Philip were Danaë (1553, The Wellington Collection) and Venus and Adonis (1554, Museo del Prado, P422), versions of other previous works, but endowed with all the prestige of the commissioning party. In turn, these works became models for numerous replicas (Danaë receiving the Golden Rain, 1560-65, Museo del Prado, P425).Danaë depicts the moment

The Triptych in the Museo del Prado labeled as Scenes from the Life of Christ is a pivotal work in the story of Valencian painting in the fifteenth century and in the transmission of the style and technique of Jan van Eyck to the Iberian Peninsula. The panel entered the Prado collection in 1931 from the convent of the Encarnación in Valencia, a Carmelite foundation established in 1502. It w

Reproducción de un retrato pintado hacia 1740-45. La dama representada guarda cierto parecido con Luisa Isabel de Borbón (1727-1759), hija de Luis XV y María Leszczynska, esposa del infante Felipe de Borbón, duque de Parma (1720-1765). A mediados del siglo XVIII, el retrato miniatura se pintaba sobre vitela o marfil y rara vez se optó por pintar al óleo sobre naipes o chapas de cobre; es excepcion

The crucifix is probably the most characteristic image in Christian iconography, and it was certainly one of the most widely depicted and owned in the Spain of the Habsburg monarchs. Sculptures or paintings of Christ on the cross, in their many different forms, were used for private devotion in laypeople’s houses and were displayed in nearly all churches and chapels of the time.

The panel has been extended at the top: the original part is one board of Baltic oak, horizontal in grain and about 27 cm high. Sections of the unpainted edges survive on all four sides. The last ring in this original part of the panel was formed in 1418. Above is an addition, also of oak; it is cut into an arched shape fashionable in the late fifteenth and early sixteenth centuries.
