Eugenia Martínez Vallejo, Naked
Oil on canvas. Ca. 1680
Carreño de Miranda, Juan

After the death of Velázquez, Carreño showed himself to be the artist most worthy of continuing the depiction of monsters, jesters, and dwarves that inhabited the Spanish court. Inventories show that the Alcázar possessed a large number of portraits of this kind by Carreño, among which are the two of the Monster, as well as others that have unfortunately disappeared. Th

Landscape with Psyche and Jupiter
Oil on canvas. Ca. 1610
Rubens, Peter Paul; Bril, Paul

On a number of occasions, Peter Paul Rubens partially overpainted finished pictures. He did this to paintings by his own hand, such as Nymphs and Satyrs (P1666), which he retouched and enlarged twenty years after he first painted it. He also made changes to drawings and paintings by other artists that he owned. This painting is an example of such reworking, albeit in a radical mode that changed th

Hollyhocks
Oil on canvas. 1872 - 1873
Fortuny, Mariano

Fortuny enjoyed painting flowers in bloom in his scenes. Attracted by their colours, he also made separate studies of them. His favourites were hollyhocks on account of their pleasing hues and the elegant verticality of their stalks, which is accentuated by the format used here. As the background is devoid of references, their corollas appear to float in an indeterminate space, with varying degree

Penitent Magdalene
Oil on canvas. Ca. 1765
Mengs, Anton Raphael

Mary Magdalene, recognisable by her beauty, semi-nudity and the skull -a symbol of meditation on death- prays before a cross made from a branch. Based on a celebrated seventeenth-century Bolognese painting, Mengs painted the first version of this composition in Rome around 1760. This one was painted for his friend Alberico Pini, valet to Charles III.

Vicente Palmaroli
Oil on canvas. 1866 - 1867
Madrazo y Kuntz, Luis de

Retrato de busto, el rostro ofrece amplia y despejada frente, con ojos que trasmiten un aire veladamente burlón, reforzado por esa boca entreabierta que parece iniciar una sonrisa, extenso bigote y perilla que buscan deshacer cierta tendencia a la redondez de los rasgos, y melena corta y amplia a ambos lados de la cabeza. Un rostro afable que se advierte también en el retrato conservado en el Círc

The Flight into Egypt
Oil on pine panel. Ca. 1570
el Greco (Domenikos Theotokopoulos)

This small panel -it is practically a miniature- is truly exceptional among El Greco’s works. In it, he employs landscape as an essential compositional element while simultaneously demonstrating his mastery of the techniques and expressive resources of 16th-century Venetian painting. The Holy Family is depicted on its journey to Egypt, fleeing the persecution of Herod, who decreed the execution of

Goya y Lucientes, Francisco de

José Álvarez de Toledo, Duke of Alba and XI Marquis of Villafranca was the husband of María Teresa de Silva, Duchess of Alba. He is portrayed full length, wearing a yellowish frock coat, a blue-speckled white vest, greenish grey stockings and black riding boots with spurs. The Duke leans on a desk that bears a violin and a black hat. In his hands he holds the score to Four Son

Saint Sebastian
Oil on canvas. 1610 - 1614
el Greco (Domenikos Theotokopoulos)

According to ancient traditions collected by Jacobus de Voragine in his Legenda Aurea (1264), Saint Sebastian was a third-century Roman soldier who served in the Praetorian Guard, one of the most prestigious units of the imperial army, at the time when the emperor Diocletian was actively persecuting Christians. Sebastian’s beliefs urged him to encourage others to die rather than renounce their fai

Isaac and Jacob
Oil on canvas. 1637
Ribera, Jusepe de, lo Spagnoletto

This painting narrates an event from chapter 27 of Genesis, in which Jacob tricks his father, Isaac, in order to obtain the blessing that should rightfully go to his older brother, Esau. Jacob’s mother, Rebecca, helps him dress in Esau’s clothes and cover his arm with a sheepskin that resembles his brother’s abundant body hair. He then takes food to his elderly, blind father, Isaac, thus inducing

Ceres in the House of Hecuba
Oil on copperplate. Ca. 1605
Elsheimer, Adam (And Workshop)

According to Ovid’s Metamorphoses, after several days’s searching for her daughter Proserpina, who had been abducted by Pluto, Ceres stopped at the house of Hecuba. There, the goddess was offered a jug of water, from which she drank greedily, provoking the laughter of the young Stellio, whom Ceres turned into a tiny lizard. This painting belonged to Rubens, a friend and admirer of Elsheimer.

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. Dendrochronol

Narcissus
Oil on canvas. 1636 - 1638
Cossiers, Jan

Narciso, un joven de gran belleza, fue castigado por los dioses por haber rechazado a la ninfa Eco a morir de amor hacia sí mismo. Ovidio en el libro III de las Metamorfosis (370-510) cuenta: "(...) Y mientras bebe cautivado por el reflejo de la belleza que está viendo, ama una esperanza sin cuerpo; cree que es cuerpo lo que es agua. Se extasía ante sí mismo y sin moverse ni mudar el semblante per

Portrait of a Woman (Agnese, the painter’s sister-in-law?)
Oil on unlined canvas. 1525 - 1530
Licinio, Bernardino

Modigliani identified the sitter as Agnese, the painter’s sister-in-law, through her resemblance to the woman who appears in the Portrait of Arrigo Licinio and his Family (Rome, Galleria Borghese, inv. 115). As that painting is datable to around 1540, the present work must have been executed between 1525 and 1530 as Agnese here appears considerably younger than in the Rome portrait, by which point

Still Life with Sweetmeats and Glass Vessels
Oil on canvas. 1622
Hamen y León, Juan Van Der

A narrow board bears a small selection of objects and victuals worthy of a snack. Their volumes and qualities are defined by the light, making the various elements stand out on a very dark background. The perceptible influence of Sánchez Cotán and the knowledge of Italian tenebrist painting made this the most unanimously admired still life by Van der Hamen. The view of these sweets b

The seated model is sumptuously dressed, with silver-lamé collar and cuffs, a pearl choker and a very dark green dress with silver decorations on her skirt and gold ones on the bodice and sleeves. She has flowers in her hair and long earrings. The heavy crimson velvet curtain behind her is echoed by a matching mat on the buffet. The scene opens onto an urban background that recalls the city

En el centro, en pie, la Pintura; a la derecha, sentada de perfil, con el compás y la escuadra, la Arquitectura; al fondo, la Escultura.Es apunte que enlaza con el estilo de Novelli, en el trazado de la pluma en rayas zigzagueantes o paralelas que hacen reconocibles sus dibujos. La composición cuidadosamente enmarcada a tinta, es quizá para frontispicio de un libro, pero la sequedad y debilidad de
