Earthly Paradise
Oil on canvas. XVI century
Bassano (Workshop Of)

This is a painting of rather mediocre quality for which the artists drew on several ricordi from the stock at the family bottega. To cite an example, the horse and pair of dogs on the right specifically repeat the ones that appear in a similar position in Adam Being Reprimanded (P21). This juxtaposition of standardised models explains the obvious problems of scale in the depiction of the animals,

Still Life with Animals
Oil on canvas. 1680 - 1690
Hondecoeter, Melchior D´

The painting featured here is an example of the characteristic compositions with poultry in which D`Hondecoeter specialised. This type of painting was brought to Utrecht in 1619 by Roeland Savery (1576-1639), who had, in turn, been introduced to this genre -of which the most prominent and influential practitioner was Frans Snyders (1592-1667)- while at the court of Rudolf II of Prague.D`Hondecoete

Juanes, Juan de (Vicente Juan Masip)

This painting formed part of the Altar Piece of San Esteban (Valencia), the most celebrated work by Juanes, who came from Valencia. The scenes included the most important episodes in the life of the saint, considered to be the first martyr of Christianity. According to the Acts of the Apostles , the preaching of Saint Stephen aroused the suspicions of the Sanhedrin and he was accused of destroying

Painted for the base of the main altarpiece of San Esteban in Valencia (P00838, P00839, P00840, P00841 and P00842), Inspired by Leonardo, both in the definition of the space and in the eloquent expressiveness of the apostles, it also shows Juanes’s close relationship with Raphael. In keeping with traditional iconography in Spain, he focussed the scene on Jesus, serene and triumphant at the moment

Saint Stephen led to his Martyrdom
Oil on panel. 1555 - 1562
Juanes, Juan de (Vicente Juan Masip)

A depiction of the New Testament story (Acts 7, 58) Saint Stephen was condemned to stoning after angering the priests of the Sanhedrin assembly. This scene represents the moment when he is taken out of the city and led to martyrdom, by the executioners at the doors of Jerusalem, just as Christ was, on Calvary. Juanes differs from his father´s style I by accenting the ugliness of the executioners,

It is not known when or how these two paintings -Saint John the Baptist and Saint Juan de Ribera (P947)- came to be the property of Luisa Enríquez, but their common provenance has never been seen as an indication of a link with the same group of art works. However, the technical study that was recently carried out on the two panels shows that they are directly and unequivocally related in t

Navarrete "el Mudo", Juan Fernández

This panel was the first painting produced by the artist when he started working for Philip II at the monastery of El Escorial. He had just returned from Italy, and already displayed a remarkable ability to blend the various elements that together shaped his Escorial style: the landscape has Netherlandish echoes, whilst the figures are handled in a Mannerist style reminiscent of Raphael and Michel

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

Large-format versions of the Virgin holding the dead body of Christ, like those at Badajoz Cathedral and at the Real Academia de Bellas Artes de San Fernando, gave way in Morales’s oeuvre to smaller compositions on the same subject, with half-length figures shown on a striking background of rigorous black. Against this, the two figures and the upright of the cross are contrasted with strong lighti

This work portrays the well-known New Testament parable (Luke, 15: 11-32) illustrating the repentance of the sinner and the virtues of forgiveness. The pretext for the setting is the banquet given by the father to celebrate the return of the son, in which, according to the gospel, a fatted calf was served. The painter chose to recreate the festive nature of the event, ignoring the angry protests o

These four portraits of women, two double ones and two single ones (P02074, P02075 and P02076) presented standing and down to kneelevel, use the same architectural setting. The series is given visual unity by the use of a central niche and two more, barely visible ones at the sides, separated by masonry pillars and decorated with small lions’ heads in the centre.This use of shared elements is prob

In 1625, Archduchess Isabel Clara Eugenia commissioned Rubens to design a series of twenty tapestries for the Monastery of the Descalzas Reales in Madrid. The subject was the Eucharist, a leading Catholic dogma that the infanta defended in her role as sovereign princess of the southern Netherlands. Rubens conceived the scenes like victory marches, as if the cloths were hanging from baroque archite

Juan de Juanes depicts the episode in the Acts of the Apostles when Saint Stephen declared before the Sanhedrin: “I see the heavens opened and the Son of Man standing on the right hand of God.” When they heard him the priests “cried out with a loud voice and stopped their ears and rushed together at him” (Acts 7, 56 and 57). The classical architecture of the temple is a striking element in the com
