The Burial of Christ
Oil on canvas. 1559
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 Adoration of the shepherds
Oil on canvas. 1623 - 1625
Orrente, Pedro de

This canvas presents one of the most persistent subjects in Pedro Orrente´s substantial output: the Nativity and the Adoration of the shepherds, a popular theme among seventeenth-century Spanish painters. Bucolic scenes were also captured successfully throughout the sixteenth century and much of the seventeenth century by the influential family of Italian painters: Jacopo, Leandro and France

Carreño de Miranda, Juan

Charles II was born in 1661, the only son of Philip IV and his second wife (and niece), Mariana of Austria, to survive to adulthood. Charles succeeded his father in 1665 and died without an heir in 1700 at the age of 39, thus bringing to an end the Spanish Habsburg dynasty. According to the date on this portrait, the king would have been 20 years old at the time. His long hair is worn in a similar

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

Salome
Oil on canvas. Ca. 1550
Titian (Tiziano Vecellio)

Salome, an Edomite princess born of Herodias and the wife of Herod Philip I, carries the severed head of Saint John the Baptist on a tray, illustrating a Bible passage from Matthew (14:1–11) and Mark (6:22–28). Titian had already painted this story in 1516 (Galleria Doria Pamphilj, Rome), with a pyramidal composition that showed Salome bearing the saint’s head on a tray held chest high, and a serv

She wears a black gown with pointed sleeves and a long train that is curled around her body and billows at the back.

Dressed in the habit of a Knight of Saint James, the subject of this portrait kneels in prayer. An armored knight standing at his side and looking to the heavens may well be Saint Louis, King of France, who was considered the model Christian soldier in that period. An inscription on one side of the base of the column identifies the kneeling figure as Julián Romero, he of the Deeds (ca. 1518

El juego representado en este cartón para tapiz corresponde a la descripción del juego de bochas en el Diccionario de Autoridades de 1726: “Juego que se juega entre dos o más personas con unas bolas medianas, y otra más pequeña, la cual se echa rodando à cierta distancia, y tirando con las otras hacia donde está la pequeña, el que más se arrima con la suya a ella, es el que gana la raya.

The Prado Tax Collector and his Wife (so-called Money Changer and his Wife) dated 1539 and gifted to the museum in 1934 is the second version of this subject recorded in Spain. Thanks to the recent research by Manuel Parada, it can now be identified as the earliest documented work by Marinus. The painting was acquired by Pedro Dávila y Zúñiga (1498-1567), 1st Marquis of Las Na

This Charity, one of the most important works by the Tuscan painter Portelli, derives from a work on the same subject by Francesco Salviati (1510-1563) now in the Uffizi, Florence, emulating its composition, brilliant colours and detailed finish. It was acquired by Charles IV.

Self-portrait

Titian (Tiziano Vecellio)

Titian painted his first self-portrait before leaving for Rome in 1545. However, it was after his Roman stay that he showed the most interest in disseminating his image in order to fully establish his position in a context of intense rivalry with Michelangelo. In 1549 Paolo Giovio acquired a self-portrait by the artist for his Museo in Como, while in 1550 the painter had another one sent to Charle

Agüero, Benito Manuel de

Between the vegetation of La Herrería and a sky that silhouettes the mountains, the southern façade of the Royal Seat of San Lorenzo, perhaps the most balanced of the entire edifice, stands out in the light. The painter emphasizes the rows of windows to mark the wall´s horizontality, establishing a contrast with the vertical towers on the corners. The church´s central nave and transe

This portrait signed by Lucia Anguissola is acknowledged as the most important of the few works produced by Sofonisba’s younger sister. In keeping with Lombard painting of the period, she depicts this bald, bearded, ageing gentleman in the immediate foreground, seated in an armchair and turning slightly to gaze inquisitively at the spectator. He is dressed in a roomy gown with puffed sleeves taper
