Still Life with a Maid
Oil on canvas. Ca. 1633
Snyders, Frans

Saint Peter weeping
Oil on canvas. 1620 - 1630
Anonymous

After denying that he was a follower of Christ, Saint Peter repented of his actions. This canvas deploys the chromatic restraint and compositional rigour of Velázquez’s early works, combined here with a freer and more relaxed although equally deft pictorial handling.

Philip IV in Armour, with a Lion at his Feet
Oil on canvas. Ca. 1653
Velázquez, Diego Rodríguez de Silva y (Workshop Of)

In its present state the painting reveals two different phases of creation. The apparent age of the sitter and the notable similarities with his appearance in Velázquez`s portrait of the elderly Philip IV in the Museo del Prado (P01185) have meant that this painting is generally dated to the 1650s. However, technical studies have revealed important changes, primarily affecting the head and

The Surrender of Jülich
Oil on canvas. 1634 - 1635
Leonardo, Jusepe

The capitulation of the Rhenish city of Jülich was one of the most outstanding events at the beginning of the Thirty Years War (1618-1648). Occupied by Maurice of Nassau’s French troops since 1610, Jülich surrendered to an army led by the Marquis of Los Balbases, General Ambrosio de Spínola, who would later triumph at Breda. This event took place after the truce established in 160

The Good Shepherd
Oil on canvas. Ca. 1660
Murillo, Bartolomé Esteban

In a landscape with classical ruins that allude to the defeat of paganism, the Christ Child tends a lamb. Murillo based this image on a print by Stefano della Bella (1610-1664), while making use of his outstanding ability to depict children to create one of the most effective depictions of the parable of the Good Shepherd.

Archduke Alberto de Austria
Oil on canvas. Ca. 1615
Rubens, Peter Paul; Brueghel The Elder, Jan (Jan 'velvet' Brueghel)

Alberto de Austria, the sovereign prince of the Low Countries, is dressed in black and sits under a canopy indicating that this is a court portrait. Unlike the customary indoor portraits, this one is set on a balcony open to a landscape that includes Tervuren Palace, near Brussels. This portrait, and that of his wife, Isabel Clara (P01684), seeks not only to bring out the figure of the Archduke, b

The Baptism of Queen candace´s Eunuch

Both, Jan

This painting entered the museum as a work by Claude Lorrain, but in 1843, it appeared in the catalog as an original by Jan Both, an attribution that has been maintained in posterior catalogs and is accepted without argument by specialists.Drawn from Acts (VIII: 26-38), the subject is the conversion and baptism of Queen Candace of Ethiopia by the Apostle Philip the Eunuch, who did so while returni

Nativity
Oil on canvas. Ca. 1610
Cajés, Eugenio

Eugenio was the son of Tuscan painter Patricio Cajés, who came to Spain to work for Philip II at the monastery of El Escorial. His mother, Casilda de la Fuente, was Spanish. He began studying painting with his father and later moved to Rome (1595-1599), where he discovered two new trends in painting that would largely define the course of art in the 17th century: Caravaggio’s chiaroscuro an

Saint Sebastian
Oil on canvas. 1656
Carreño de Miranda, Juan

Today, Juan Carreño, who was appointed Chamber Painter to the King in 1671, is best remembered for his portraits from the court of Charles II, but, in fact, most of his paintings are devotional. Such works abounded at churches, convents, and private homes in Madrid and its surroundings, and they contributed to the artist´s growing renown. Chief among them is the artist´s Saint Sebastian. Ac

John the Baptist and Saint John the Evangelist
Oil on canvas. 1600 - 1610
el Greco (Domenikos Theotokopoulos) (And Workshop)

En medio de un paisaje pedregoso y bajo la amenaza de un cielo de tormenta, san Juan Evangelista y san Juan Bautista se presentan en primer término y en actitud de dialogar. Cada uno aparece con la indumentaria y los atributos de su iconografía tradicional: el Evangelista es un joven imberbe que se cubre con túnica azul y un amplio manto rosáceo; bendice el cáliz del que brota un dragoncillo, refe

Brígida del Río, the Bearded Lady of Peñaranda
Oil on canvas. 1590
Sánchez Cotán, Juan

Brígida del Río was a well-known character in the late 16th century, as indicated by the descriptions of her in various literary and visual accounts; works that reflect a para-scientific and morbid interest in natural anomalies and deviations. Bearded women were associated in the collective imagination with lust and devilry. The painting’s meticulous, detailed technique is characteri

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

Cecco del Caravaggio (Francesco Buoneri)

This painting was first attributed to Cecco del Caravaggio by Joan Ainaud de Lasarte in 1947. At that time, very little was known about this painter, who was later identified as Francesco Buoneri, an artist working in Rome during the second decade of the seventeenth century who had previously been the most outstanding follower of Caravaggio. His relationship with the latter may also have been more

River Landscape with Fishing Boats and a Windmill on the Bank
Oil on panel. XVII century
Hulst, Frans Anthonisz. de

Until 1920, this painting appears in the Prado catalogues as an original by Cornelis Molenaer (1530/50-1589). However, in the 1889 edition it is noted that Bredius believes it to have been painted by Pieter Nolpe (1613-1653). This attribution was officially accepted by the Museum from 1933 until the 1985 catalogue, when it is ascribed to Jan Coelenbier (1610-1680), as proposed by Valdivieso and su

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

Oil on canvas. 1610 - 1615
Mierevelt, Michiel Jansz. Van

Like the Portrait of a Lady of the Van Beijeren van Schagen Family (P2976), this portrait is a representative example of Mierevelt`s work in this genre. The support is also constructed in the same way, and is typical of this artist`s portraits.In the Baron van Aerssen Beijeren collection the picture is listed as a portrait of Willem van Beijeren van Schagen (1517-1548) and as pendant to the Portra

The Virgin and Child with Angels
Oil on canvas. 1618
Cajés, Eugenio

In this work Cajés combines Caravaggesque tenebrism with Correggio’s soft, fleshy Mannerism. The resulting painting, with its gentle, delicate appearance, reveals the artist’s clear assimilation of ideas from Italian art. Cajés studied in Rome between 1595 and 1599 where he was for a while associated with the Cavaliere d’Arpino and from where he returned determined to develop his own
