The Burial of Christ

The Burial of Christ
Oil on canvas. 1572
Titian (Tiziano Vecellio)

Titian represented the Gospel account of the burial of Christ (Matthew 27: 57-61; Mark 15: 44-47; Luke 23: 50-54; John 19: 38-42) on several occasions. There is a notable difference between his first version (Paris, Louvre) of around 1526 which is clearly indebted to Raphael´s painting of that subject (Rome, Galleria Borghese), and his other versions painted between 1559 and 1572. The main differe

Josefa Coello de Portugal
Oil on canvas. 1855
Madrazo y Kuntz, Federico de

In the mid-nineteenth century Federico de Madrazo produced some of the most successful portraits of the Spanish bourgeoisie during the reign of Isabel II (1833-68), presenting them with the opulence that their social status demanded. In addition to his remarkable artistic ability, his female portraits are outstanding for their depiction of the accessories and adornments. These details are emphasis

The Brazen Serpent
Oil on canvas. 1743 - 1744
Giaquinto, Corrado

Moses Striking Water from the Rock and The Bronze Serpent are related to frescos on the same subjects in the apse of the basilica of Santa Croce in Gerusalemme in Rome. Those decorations commissioned in 1743 by the procurer general of the Cistercians and abbot of Santa Croce, Raimondo Besozzi, were paid by Pope Benedict XIV. As was his custom, Giaquinto painted various versions of the compositions

The Holy Family
Oil on canvas. 1631
Carducho, Vicente

Vicente Carducho is a paradigmatic figure in Spanish painting from the early decades of the seventeenth century, a period of transition from the Tuscan-Roman mannerism to so-called early naturalism. In this context, the works of Carducho, who trained in the monastery of San Lorenzo de El Escorial together with his brother, Bartolomé, may be seen as prolonging the Tuscan traditions in their

Protagoniza el mismo escenario arquitectónico, de idéntico contenido bíblico, del cobre Jesús en el atrio del Pontífice. Los personajes de la nave lateral del fondo evocan la narración, inmediatamente posterior al prendimiento de Jesús, de San Lucas: Pedro se sentó también entre ellos. Viéndole en él dijo: Éste estaba también con Él. Él lo negó, diciendo: No le conozco, mujer. Vuelto el Señor, mir

Altar frontal with Scenes from the Childhood of Christ
Tempera on panel. First third of the XIII century
Anonymous

This altar frontal is divided into two levels separated by arches enclosing the Adoration of the Magi, above, and the Presentation in the Temple, below. Both the structure and composition are unusual for this period. Each figure is identified with an inscription. The frontal comes from the church of Nuestra Señora de Peñalba in Arnedillo (La Rioja).

The Painter Francesco Albani
Oil on canvas. 1635
Sacchi, Andrea

Between 1635 and 1636 Sacchi left Bologna in order to study the work of Correggio (c. 1489-1534) and the Venetian painters. Before leaving he painted a portrait of his teacher, Albani (1578-1660), aged fifty-six, and kept this image until his death. It was acquired by his pupil Carlo Maratti (1625-1713), from whose collection it passed to that of Philip V after Maratti’s death.

Oil on canvas. 1860
Lucas Velázquez, Eugenio

Wearing a penitent´s hood, a woman condemned by the Inquisition rides a burro, receiving the insults of those observing this street scene. Executed with rapid and impasto brushstrokes favors, this work is inspired by scenes of inquisitorial condemnations painted by Goya, who was an exceptional witness to them. Lucas, however, could not have been a direct witness to this type of events as the inqui

And They Still Say Fish Is Expensive!
Oil on canvas. 1894
Sorolla y Bastida, Joaquín

This emblematic picture is undoubtedly the best-known work on a social theme produced by Sorolla in his youth. It is also an especially good example of how fully the artist became involved in a genre which, at the time, was of particular relevance in Madrid’s official artistic circles, where Sorolla was determined to receive his first public recognition. The depth of its meaning is probably indica

From the time of the Museum’s founding this small room was part of the private area known as Their Majesties’ Rest Room (now Room 39). Similar to those existing in other Bourbon palaces, it housed the King’s lavatory. Despite its late date, 1834, the walls and ceiling of this room were decorated in the Neoclassical style by Francisco Martínez.

Oil on canvas. 1787
Bayeu, Francisco

Francisco Bayeu worked as a court painter to Charles III from 1767; by 1787 -the date of this small portrait- he had produced a considerable number of decorations for the royal palaces and important churches. He reached the zenith of his brilliant career as an official painter and academician around this time, being named Director of Painting at the Royal Academy of Fine Arts of San Fernando in 17

Flight into Egypt
Oil on canvas. Second half of the XVI century
Bassano, Francesco

Unlike the adoration of the shepherds, which took place at night according to the gospel account, the nocturnal setting for the Holy Family´s flight into Egypt was an invention of the painter, since Mathew 2: 13-15 narrates how an angel appeared to Joseph in a dream and warned him that the child was in danger, but does not state that the Family departed at night or preferred to leave at sunset.

Stylistically very close to Titian, this well painted canvas is not in fact by his hand. The sitter’s elevated social status is indicated by his carefully painted clothes while the inscription states that he was 37 when this portrait was executed.

The Incredulity of Saint Thomas
Oil on canvas. 1641 - 1649
Stom, Matthias (Also Called Stomer)

The subject of this painting is taken from the Gospels (John 20:24–28). The scene depicts the moment when Thomas, seeking proof of the Resurrection, places his fingers in the wound in Christ’s right side. This work has been ascribed to Matthias Stom’s Sicilian period, when he combined certain northern European stylistic qualities -for example, the accurate folds of the robes and the expressiveness

View of Madrid from the Meadow of San Isidro
Oil on canvas. 1909
Beruete, Aureliano de

Beruete’s works often depict the outskirts of Madrid, where he habitually lived between November and June. Besides his views of the Guadarrama from el Plantío de los Infantes -the country estate belonging to his wife- he also frequently painted views of the city from the southeast, which he could easily reach from his house at number 15, calle Génova. Those settings were the most agr

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
