Ecce Homo
Oil on panel. 1560 - 1570
Morales, Luis de

Jesus is shown half-length, crowned with thorns and with a haggard face, parted lips, prominent cheekbones, and moist eyes raised in an attitude of submission to the divine will. His hair, beard, moustache and eyelashes are minutely rendered in a light brown colour. Similarly detailed is the treatment of the tears and drops of blood. The latter, caused by the thorns piercing his forehead and the w

Boy with a Wicker Basket
Oil on canvas. Ca. 1786
Bayeu y Subías, Ramón

This cartoon for a tapestry to be placed over a door or window shows a street vendor, a subject based on the popular and very widely distributed etchings by the Bolognese artist Annibale Carracci (1560-1609). This work of extraordinary refinement is notable especially for the boy`s noble pose, a masterly rendition by the artist of the attempts by enlightened reformers to revitalise and dignify man

Table of the Seven Deadly Sins
Oil on poplar panel. 1505 - 1510
Bosch, Hieronymus

Two banderoles, one above and the other below the central circle, contain Latin texts from Deuteronomy (32: 28-29 and 20), warning against the wages of sin. The upper banderole, between the tondos of Death and the Last Judgment, reads: Gens absq[ue] [con]silio e[st] et sine prudentia // deutro[m]y 32 [um//] utina[m] sapere[n]t [et] i[n]telligere[n]t ac novissi[m]a p[ro]videre[n]t (For they are a n

Queen Elisabeth of Valois, third wife of Philip II
Oil on canvas. Ca. 1605
Pantoja de la Cruz, Juan

In this three-quarter portrait Queen Isabel de Valois (1546-1568) wears a black velvet gown with round sleeves from which her slashed red silk undersleeves embroidered with gold and silver thread peep out. On her head is a tilted flat cap which, like the buttons adorning the gown, is decorated with diamonds and rubies. The French queen would have dressed in this manner for solemn events, embellish

The Descent from the Cross

The Descent from the Cross
Oil on canvas. 1595
Carducho, Bartolomé

The Florentine Bartolomé Carducho arrived at the royal monastery of El Escorial in 1585, two years after El Greco had completed The Martyrdom of Saint Maurice for that building. Philip II was unhappy with the latter work and El Greco thus failed to establish connections with the Spanish court, in contrast to Carducho whose appointment to the key position of Painter to the King allowed him t

Saint Catherine of Alexandria

Saint Catherine of Alexandria
Oil on canvas. Ca. 1560
Titian (Tiziano Vecellio)

Although no entirely autograph painting of this subject survives, Titian painted it on numerous occasions, both as a single figure and within larger compositions. In 1648, for example, Ridolfi mentions at least tre inventioni di Santa Caterina martire, che si sposa a Christo diversamente dipinte, belonging to Cristofo and Francesco Muselli in Verona. The first (lost) image of the saint as a single

Saint Jerome

Campi, Antonio
Saint Jerome
Oil on panel transferred to canvas. Ca. 1566
Campi, Antonio

Born in Cremona, Campi’s style combined Mannerist elements, such as the contorted bodies of the figures, and naturalistic ones, such as the detailed depiction of objects. In the late 1560s his painting became increasingly religious in tone and more emotionally expressive, aspects that he conveyed through pronounced contrasts of light and shade. This work was painted for the church of Saint’Eustorg

Christ and the Centurion
Oil on canvas. Ca. 1571
Veronese, Paolo (Paolo Cagliari)

With a halo of sainthood over his head, Jesus extends his arm to the centurion who, having converted to the Christian faith, kneels at his feet, as told in the New Testament (Matthew 8, 5-13). The scene takes place in front of an architectural backdrop inspired by the work of the architect Andrea Palladio (1508-1580). The bright colors worn by the figures are brought out by the white of the strong

The Virgin Nursing the Child
Oil on panel. Ca. 1565
Morales, Luis de

These works (P944 and P7948) embody a more decorous variation of the breastfeeding Madonna, a reference to the succour afforded by the Virgin to all believers. Morales designed a composition which avoids both the representation of Mary’s nude breast and explicit lactation. With both hands, Mary holds a Child who seeks maternal consolation, lifting the veil with one hand and touching the modestly c

Man wearing an Ermine Collar
Oil on canvas. Ca. 1555

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.

Still life with basket of grapes and other fruits
Oil on canvas. 1624
Loarte, Alejandro de

This work is an important addition to the Museo del Prado’s collection, as it is signed by an artist from the area of Toledo who made very few paintings. Indeed, the museum has only one other signed still life by him -The Chicken Seller (P08063)- and three more that are attributed to him: Saint John the Baptist (P01308), The Penitent Mary Magdalene (P01309) and The Miracle of Saint Bernard (P03489

The Queen of Sheba and Salomon
Oil on canvas. Ca. 1555
Tintoretto, Jacopo Robusti

This is one of seven canvases (P00386, P00388, P00389, P00393, P00394, P00395, P00396) in a group linked by the same color scheme, a general accentuation of surface drawing and a rhythm of curved forms that link on painting to another. The scenes were designed to be seen together, at a certain height and laid out on canvases conceived as inclined planes that converged on a central painting. Clearl

Oil on unlined canvas. XVI century
Badile, Antonio (Attributed To)

Este singular retrato de grupo cuenta con una atribución no exenta de problemática a Antonio Badile, autor de ámbito véneto que fue maestro de Paolo Veronese. Resulta muy cercano en concepto a uno conservado en el Musée des Beaux-Artes et d´Archéologie de Besançon atribuido al taller de Tintoretto (inv. 896.1.114, hacia 1550-1560, óleo sobre lienzo, 109´5 x 129´5).

Joseph and the Wife of Putiphar
Oil on canvas. Ca. 1555
Tintoretto, Jacopo Robusti

Joseph is a handsome and virtuous slave falsely accused of rape by his master´s wife, whose advances he has rejected. He is imprisoned, but eventually raised to the highest office by Pharaoh (Exodus: 39). Joseph and the Wife of Putiphar and Susannah and the Elders (P386) can be understood as parables of righteousness threatened and preserved, but here -as was usual for artists of the Renaissance a

Danaë and the Shower of Gold
Oil on canvas. 1560 - 1565
Titian (Tiziano Vecellio)

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

Still Life with Cardoon, Francolin, Grapes and Irises
Oil on canvas. 1628
Ramírez, Felipe

Because this work is signed and dated, it reveals the existence of a painter by the name of Felipe Ramírez, although art historians know virtually nothing else about him. This lovely example of his work makes it clear, however, that he continued the tradition of the variety of still life cultivated by Juan Sánchez Cotán (1560-1627), an artist who is considered the most origina

The judgement of Paris
Oil on canvas. 1650 - 1660
Albani, Francesco

Francesco Albani was a much favoured pupil of Annibale Carracci. His success was partially due to mythological paintings such as The toilet of Venus (P1) and The judgement of Paris (P2), whose refined and lyrical view of nature helped disseminate the classical ideals of the Carracci`s landscapes.Albani`s The judgement of Paris, c.1650-60, shows the shepherd prince admiring the beauty of three godd
