Isabel de Borbón, Wife of Philip IV
Oil on canvas. Ca. 1620
Villandrando, Rodrigo de

The daughter of Henri IV of France and Marie de Médicis, Isabel de Borbón (1603-1644) was the first wife of Philip IV and the mother of Prince Baltasar Carlos and María Teresa of Austria. In Villandrando’s portrait, painted a year before Isabel became Queen of Spain, she wears a stiff, sumptuous dress that emphasises her presence and royal status. Although Spanish in cut, the

Saint Cecilia
Oil on canvas. After 1611
Grammatica, Antiveduto Della

The Roman saint Cecilia was martyred for her faith. As the patron saint of music she is normally depicted playing an instrument, crowned with flowers and accompanied by the angel who defended her purity. The pronounced contrasts of light in this scene reveal the influence of Caravaggio that was evident in Grammatica’s work from 1605 onwards.

The Poultry Vendor
Oil on canvas. 1626
Loarte, Alejandro de

This is Loarte’s most ambitious work among his still lifes. A depiction of a market stall in the Plaza de Zocodover in Toledo, it marks the end of a career cut short by the artist’s early death. Brushwork, colour and lighting are used to create a composition of notable visual impact, of which another version of the same date is known.

Saint Sebastian
Oil on canvas. 1617 - 1619
Reni, Guido

Sebastian was a Roman soldier who suffered martyrdom for his Christian faith during the reign of Diocletian and Maximian at the end of the third century. He was made a patron saint of the city of Rome and his cult became popular throughout Europe as he was invoked in times of plague. Sebastian is usually shown bound to a tree and shot with arrows in what turned out to be a first failed attempt at

The Incredulity of Saint Thomas

The Incredulity of Saint Thomas
Oil on canvas. 1641 - 1649
Stom, Matthias (Also Called Stomer)

The subject of this painting is taken from the Gospels (John 20:24–28). The scene depicts the moment when Thomas, seeking proof of the Resurrection, places his fingers in the wound in Christ’s right side. This work has been ascribed to Matthias Stom’s Sicilian period, when he combined certain northern European stylistic qualities -for example, the accurate folds of the robes and the expressiveness

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

Still Life with game birds
Oil on panel. Ca. 1619
Vollenhoven, Herman Van

In the immediate foreground, six dead birds arranged on a table that runs parallel to the picture plane stand out against a dark ground. These are, from right to left, three greenfinches, a goldfinch and what appears to be a grouse; the one behind them is difficult to identify. They are all game fowl, making it possible to classify the scene as a still life with game. The light enters from the lef

Cardinal-Infante Ferdinand of Austria, in Hunting Dress
Oil on canvas. 1632 - 1634
Velázquez, Diego Rodríguez de Silva y

Born in El Escorial in 1609, don Fernando was the son of Philip III and Margarita de Austria, and thus Philip IV´s brother. As a result, he held very high posts. In 1619, he was appointed cardinal and between 1634 and his death in 1641, he was governor of Flanders, where he succeeded his aunt, the Archduchess Isabel Clara Eugenia. Generally dated around 1632-1634, in the years immediately followin

The Triumph of David over Goliath
Oil on panel. 1618 - 1619
Brueghel el Joven, Pieter; Stalbent, Adriaen Van

This composition depicts the triumphal return to Jerusalem of David and the Israelite army after defeating Goliath, a biblical episode narrated in the Book of Samuel. The painting was signed and dated by the two artists a year apart. The landscape was probably completed first by Brueghel and the figures added a year later by Van Stalbent.

The 1910 catalogue states that Bredius attributed this painting to Jacop Gerritsz. Cuyp (1594-1652), ascription that was officially accepted by the Museum in 1985. However, neither the typology nor the style correspond to Cuyp`s portraits. Moreover, the oval-shaped panel is characteristic of Amsterdam portraitists. Fred Meijer thus believes that this could be the work of a painter who belonged to

Philip III on Horseback
Oil on canvas. Ca. 1635
Velázquez, Diego Rodríguez de Silva y

This was one of the paintings decorating the Hall of Realms at Madrid´s Buen Retiro Palace, where various discourses (territorial, mythological, military, and so on) combined to make up the decoration. Genealogical matters were addressed through five portraits that respectively depicted the reigning monarch, Philip IV (P01178), his wife (P01179), their parents (the present work and P01177) and the

The Adoration of the Magi
Oil on canvas. 1619
Velázquez, Diego Rodríguez de Silva y

Painted in Seville in 1619, The Adoration of the Magi is the largest of Velázquez`s early works and, together with Saint Ildefonso receiving the Chasuble, the one with the most figures, making it one of the artist`s most ambitious compositions to date in his career. Both the above characteristics suggests that it was painted for a religious interior, very probably one associated with the Je

The scene here unfolds in the foreground, which is occupied by a large rocky outcrop and trees and on the right opens onto a luminous landscape enclosed by mountains in the background. The spatial transition between the dark foreground and luminous background is still somewhat awkward. In the figures the brushwork is smooth and uniform, giving the nudes a pearly appearance, whereas in the landscap

Apostle’s Head
Oil on canvas. 1619 - 1620
Velázquez, Diego Rodríguez de Silva y

Ever since this work was addressed by Velázquez’s bibliography, it has been considered a fragment from a larger painting that was part of an apostolate. That group would have included the apostle Saint Thomas at the Musée d’Orléans and the Saint Paul in Barcelona, whose styles suggest they date from 1619-20, during the first years of the artist’s career. While it has been sugg

Judith offering the Head of Holofernes
Oil on panel. 1636
Bray, Salomon de

This painting entered the Prado as an original by Philips de Koninck (1619-1688), though in the 1873 catalogue it is attributed to Salomon Koninck (1609-1656). Adecade later, in the 1885 edition, Bredius ascribes it to Pieter Fransz. de Grebber (1595/1605-1652/53), an attribution that is accepted by the Prado, albeit with reservations, as of the 1933 catalogue, where the previous title, Portraits

Cavalry Battle
Oil on canvas. XVII century
Lin, Herman Van

This painting is included in the Museum`s catalogue of 1843 as the work of Eglon van der Neer (1634-1703) and its provenance stated as the Isabella Farnese collection (1873), having been mistakenly identified as entry number 87 of the 1746 inventory of the Royal Palace of La Granja de San Ildefonso. However, although that picture is also a battle scene, neither the support nor the measurements and

As Pieter J. van Thiel suggests, this painting may be a copy made after an engraving by Jan Muller (1590) of Cornelisz. van Haarlem`s original Fortune bestowing her Favours, today at the Musée d´art et d´histoire of Geneva, which is also known through a grisaille executed by van Haarlem himself as a model for the engraving and through a copy of the original painting (Gothenburg, Götebo

Hippomenes and Atalanta

Reni, Guido

Inspired by Ovid´s Metamorphoses, this key work in Reni´s oeuvre tells the story of Atalanta, the daughter of Schoeneus, king of Arcadia. Seeking a husband, she offered to marrie anyone able to outrun her in a race. Suitors unable to do so, however, would be killed. Hippomenes was enamored of her and thus accepted the challenge with the help of Venus, who gave him three golden apples. He was suppo
