This bust portrait is a companion to that of the sitter´s husband (P02183). Shown at somewhat less than half- length, she wears a white, Nordic-style cap and a severely cut dress, and holds a white carnation in her right hand. According to an inscription in the upper part of the work she is twenty-eight. By placing her over a background that simulates a wooden surface, Amberger achieves an e

The Allocution of Marquis del Vasto to his Troops

Titian (Tiziano Vecellio)

Alfonso d´Avalos, first Marchese del Vasto, was born in Ischia on 25 May 1502 to a noble Neapolitan family of Castilian origins. He fought in Pavia (1525) under the orders of his uncle Fernando d´Avalos, Marchese di Pescara, inheriting his titles and estates on his uncle´s death that same year. In 1535 D´Avalos commanded the army that conquered Tunis and in 1538, he was appointed governor of Milan

Oil on panel. 1529
Titian (Tiziano Vecellio)

On 16 April 1529 Federico II Gonzaga, First Duke of Mantua (1500-1540), apologised to his uncle Alfonso d’Este for retaining Titian: perché ha conienzo un retratto mio qual molto desidero sii finito (because he has started a portrait of me which I greatly desire to be finished). In 1530 a second portrait of Federico in armour is also recorded. Typologically and conceptually, the present por

This portrait is a full-length likeness of Philip II’s third wife, Queen Isabel de Valois. She wears a black gown with pointed sleeves and a long train that is curled around her body and billows at the back. Poking out from beneath her hanging sleeves, held in place with ruby and diamond buttons and lined in white fabric, are silver and gold undersleeves. The one-piece gown is decorated with appli

The Martyrdom of Saint Agnes
Oil on panel. 1540 - 1545
Macip, Vicente

Masip depicts this fourth-century Roman saint´s second martyrdom, when, after having been condemned to be burned at the stake, the flames miraculously failed to touch her body and she was finally condemned to die by beheading. The logs, still burning and smoking, appear at the martyr´s feet. The lamb she holds in her arms symbolizes her virginity at the moment of her death, which was r

The Holy Family with a Parrot
Oil on panel. Ca. 1543
Salviati, Francesco (Francesco De' Rossi)

Salviati belonged to a generation of Florentine painters characterised by the sophistication of their visual language and by a deliberate formal and conceptual complexity. Having trained with Andrea del Sarto, he moved to Rome in 1531. He subsequently worked in Bologna and Venice, settling in Florence in 1543 where he painted this panel for his friend Pasquino Bertini. Its elegance and the stylisa

Sánchez Coello, Alonso

In this half-length portrait, the lady is wearing a dark brown velvet overdress luxuriously ornamented with gold chain-stitched embroidery, slit sleeves, and a high collar open in front in the Flemish style. This is a notable example of Spanish portraiture during the reign of Philip II. To begin with, it is painted on a finegrained reddish tropical wood, mahogany perhaps, a support that was quite

Fortune

Rubens, Peter Paul (And Workshop)

In the autumn of 1636, Peter Paul Rubens was commissioned by agents of Philip IV to produce his largest series of painted canvases to decorate the recently completed hunting lodge at El Pardo, near Madrid -the Torre de la Parada. Documents reveal that he was already at work by December. His main assignment comprised some sixty mythological subjects and individual figures, chiefly drawn from Ovid´s

The Agony in the Garden
Oil on canvas. 1558 - 1562
Titian (Tiziano Vecellio)

On 13 July 1558, Philip II asked Titian to make haste with the completion of an Agony in the Garden which the artist had agreed to finish one year earlier, but which was only sent to the monarch in 1562 along with The Rape of Europa. Titian sent the king another painting of the same subject, probably in 1563, and Philip sent both to the Escorial where the second is still to be found. While the two

Emperor Charles V with a Dog
Oil on canvas. 1533
Titian (Tiziano Vecellio)

The period between 1530 and 1533 was crucial for the formulation of the image of Charles V. The image that ultimately proved most influential was invented by Jacob Seisenegger who painted five full-length portraits of Charles V between 1530 and 1532, creating a totally innovative typology for the depiction of the Emperor but one that had numerous precedents in German art (Cranach, Strigel, Amberge

Emperor Charles V at Mühlberg
Oil on canvas. 1548
Titian (Tiziano Vecellio)

This portrait commemorates Charles V’s victory over the Schmalkaldic League at Mühlberg on 24 April 1547. The Emperor is equipped in the manner of the light cavalry with a half pike and wheel-lock pistol. His suit of armour was made around 1545 by Desiderius Helmschmid and has an image of the Virgin and Child on the breastplate, as was customary with Charles’ armour from 1531. Panofsky pointe

Oil on panel. 1531
Amberger, Christoph

Portrayed at less than half-length, the sitter wears a large cap and clothing with a fur collar in the northern style. He holds a carnation in his hands, with a signet ring whose coat of arms consists of a crossed ax and scythe. That coat of arms on his ring confirms that he is a member of the Zörer family, but his identification with the goldsmith, Jorg Zörer, is uncertain. The inscript

This and the drawing D1807, Standing warrior, resting his foot on the head of a dragon, are companions and have remained together from at least as long ago as the late eighteenth century, when they were kept together in the same collection, and were each laid down onto the standard mount of this collector, who however remains unknown. The first drawing carries the date April 1531, which indeed fit

Charles V
White marble. Ca. 1541
Montorsoli, Fra Giovanni Angelo Da

In this life-size bust the Emperor Charles V is shown wearing the emblem of the Golden Fleece. His suit of armour, of the “fleur-de-lys volutes” type, was made around 1521 by the Augsburg armourer Kolman Helmschmid. Charles was seen wearing it in Titian’s portrait of around 1531, a composition that Montorsoli may have known.
