Saint Joseph with the Christ Child Sleeping in his Arms

Saint Joseph with the Christ Child Sleeping in his Arms
Oil on canvas. 1652
Camilo, Francisco

Until now, this canvas was thought to come from San Felipe el Real in Madrid, as Cruzada Villaamil (1865, no. 544, p. 38) mistakenly registered it. He believed it was one of the canvases mentioned by Palomino at that Augustine convent: "in a chapel beside the door to the cloisters there is a painting by him of Saint Joachim leading Our Lady as a girl by the hand; and another painting coupled with

Saint Anne, Saint Joachim and the Virgin
Oil on canvas. 1652
Camilo, Francisco

While it is not listed in any known inventory, this canvas´s provenience from the convent of Los Carmelitas Descalzos in Toledo is certain, as it was coupled there with Saint Joseph with the Christ Child Sleeping in his Arms (P5170), which has the same dimensions, is dated the same year, and presents a complementary subject. The fact that the Virgin appears as a girl dressed in the Carmelite

Smokers and Drinkers
Oil on panel. 1652
Teniers The Younger, David

Three figures enjoy tobacco in an expressive manner in the foreground while an onlooker leans through the window. Around a table in the background, another group of figures drinks or plays cards. This is an example of scenes inside taverns with smokers, drinkers and players, which Teniers made during the sixteen thirties. He began with figures by his teacher, Adriaen Brouwer (1605/1606-1638), whic

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

Rustic Concert
Oil on panel. 1638
Ostade, Adriaen Van

This work belongs to the so-called peasant interiors, one of the new genres of painting that emerged and developed in Flanders and Holland in the early seventeenth century. In Houbraken and in early inventories they are described as een boertje, (a little peasant), or as toeback rookerchen, (tobacco smokers). The consolidation and appreciation of this genre was fostered by the satirical and morali

The penitent Saint Jerome
Oil on canvas. 1652
Ribera, Jusepe de, lo Spagnoletto

Emerging from a dark background, a half-length image of a man appears in the close foreground, his right shoulder and arm bare, his hair white and long, his features aged. He holds a wooden cross in his left hand and with his right he strikes his chest with a stone. The cross identifies him as a saint; his nakedness and dishevelled appearance indicate he is a hermit or a penitent; the stone with w

Queen Mariana of Austria
Oil on canvas. 1652 - 1653
Velázquez, Diego Rodríguez de Silva y

Mariana of Austria (1634-1696) was the daughter of the Emperor Ferdinand III and María of Hungary. It was intended that she marry her cousin, Prince Baltasar Carlos, but following his death she married Philip IV in 1649. Velázquez executed this portrait after his return from Italy. The elaborate clothing, chair and curtain emphasise the sitter`s rank while the table clock alludes to

Saint Bernard and the Virgin

Cano, Alonso
Saint Bernard and the Virgin
Oil on canvas. 1645 - 1652
Cano, Alonso

This scene from the life of Saint Bernard (twelfth century), depicts the moment when the saint received a stream of milk from a statue of the Virgin and Child, on the altar. A Cardinal watches the miracle with his hands joined in prayer. This work combines a monumental sense of forms with a very delicate treatment of color, which are the characteristics Cano´s painting acquired after he got to kno

A Blind Hurdy-Gurdy Player
Oil on canvas. 1620 - 1630
la Tour, Georges de

The blind man appears in profile playing his hurdy-gurdy, a stringed instrument with which he earns his living. Despite his miserable state, La Tour depicts him with considerable dignity, dressed in a cape that hides a chestnut vest and salmon-colored trousers. His face shows the mark of time, with tanned skin, deep wrinkles and an unkempt beard. His strong hands seem out of place for a musician b

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

Sir Thomas More
Oil on panel. 1625 - 1630
Rubens, Peter Paul

This is a free copy of Hans Holbein´s portrait of the Thomas More, the English humanist and statesman. He wears a cape with a fur collar and a magistrate´s cap. In his hands, he holds a paper alluding to his condition as an intellectual. Holbein was a favorite of Rubens, who copied his works on numerous occasions, especially at the beginning of his career. The present portrait was made in the sixt

Southern Landscape with Shepherds beneath a Ruined Arch
Oil on canvas. Ca. 1647
Asselijn, Jan

This scene belongs to the type of Italianate landscape which Asselijn cultivated in Holland based on drawings and sketches made from the life during his stay in Rome. Blankert (1965) dates the work to 1648. However, Steland-Stief (1971) believes it to have been painted around 1647, the first year Asselijn is documented in Amsterdam after returning from Italy, on account of the stylistic similarity

Still Life with Artichokes, Flowers and Glass Vessels

Hamen y León, Juan Van Der

This magnificent painting once belonged to Diego Mexía Felípez de Guzmán, Marquis of Leganés, in whose collection it was inventoried in 1655. This collection of nearly 1300 paintings comprised works by some of the most important European painters of the time, including a great number of Flemish still lifes and genre paintings. Van der Hamen was represented by nine still

The Siege of Gravelines
Oil on canvas. 1652
Snayers, Peter

Snayers specialised in panoramic views of military actions. Here he offers a topographical presentation of the siege of Gravelines (France) by the Spanish troops in 1652. On the right Snayers shows the rain falling on the area and also includes a map which functions to emphasise the illusion of depth in the scene.

Infra-red reflectography conducted for this catalogue reveals no underdrawing, which could suggest that this painting is a copy, possibly a workshop replica of the signed original in the Musée des Beaux-Arts in Bordeaux. There used to be another very similar version of this original in the Hoogsteder Gallery in The Hague.The inscription Rf. is an apocryphal signature possibly intended, as V

Margaret Theresa of Spain
Oil on canvas. 1665 - 1666
Martínez del Mazo, Juan Bautista

Margarita was born on 12 July 1651, the daughter of Philip IV and Mariana of Austria. On 12 December 1666, she married Emperor Leopold of Austria and died seven years later in Vienna. The fact that the princess is wearing mourning dress in this painting helps date it between September 1665 -when her father died- and her wedding in December 1666. Those dates suggest that the portrait was made in or

Concert of the Birds
Oil on canvas. XVII century
Snyders, Frans

In this composition, various species of birds perched on the branches of a tree -a stork, an eagle, a red macaw, etc.- sing around a musical score. As in many of Frans Snyders’ compositions, the largest birds on the ends protect the smaller ones. According to Sánchez Cantón, this work comes from the collection of the Count-Duke of Olivares’ cousin, don Diego de Mejía y Fel&iac

Two Cows in a Meadow
Oil on panel. 1652
Potter, Paulus

Two Cows in a Meadow is one of Paulus Potter`s characteristic cabinet paintings featuring domestic animals, which were generally much more accomplished than his large compositions. They may be interpreted as a transposition to the Dutch countryside of the Roman rural landscapes with animals of Pieter van Laer, il Bamboccio (ca. 1592-1642). Hofstede de Groot does not mention this painting. Walsh (1
