Landscape with a Carthusian (Saint Bruno?)

Swanevelt, Herman Van
Landscape with a Carthusian (Saint Bruno?)
Oil on canvas. 1636 - 1638
Swanevelt, Herman Van

The painting entered the Museum holdings as an original work by Jan Both. In 1959 Blunt identifies it as the landscape listed in the 1701 inventory of the Palace of the Buen Retiro and maintains the attribution to Both, as does Roethlisberger (1961). However, Waddingham (1960) ascribes it to Herman van Swanevelt, an attribution backed by Luna (1984) and officially adopted by the Museum in 1985. Th

The Burial of Christ
Oil on canvas. 1572
Titian (Tiziano Vecellio)

Titian represented the Gospel account of the burial of Christ (Matthew 27: 57-61; Mark 15: 44-47; Luke 23: 50-54; John 19: 38-42) on several occasions. There is a notable difference between his first version (Paris, Louvre) of around 1526 which is clearly indebted to Raphael´s painting of that subject (Rome, Galleria Borghese), and his other versions painted between 1559 and 1572. The main differe

Cats fighting in a Larder
Oil on canvas. 1630 - 1640
Vos, Paul de

With the owners or house servants away, the animals sneak into the larder, giving free rein to their instincts. This leads to a fight. Scenes of animal fights in domestic settings were customary in mid-seventeenth-century Flemish painting. They were also frequent in the literature of proverbs, where they were interpreted as moral allusions to the abandonment of responsibilities and their consequen

The Arch of Titus in Rome
Oil on canvas. 1657
Martínez del Mazo, Juan Bautista

Una figura con la poderosísima personalidad artística de Velázquez no podía por menos que dejar una profunda huella entre los demás pintores de la corte española. Esta influencia se notó especialmente en el retrato, pero también se advierte en otros géneros. Uno de ellos es el paisaje, y como ejemplo tenemos esta obra, que durante mucho tiempo estuvo atribuida al propio pintor sevillano. Se trata

The Turkish Embassy in Naples
Oil on canvas. 1741
Bonito, Giuseppe

Giuseppe Bonito was a student of Francesco Solimena (1657-1747) and a follower of his artistic idiom. This can be seen in the decidedly Baroque appearance of his early mythological and religious works, which later led to an amiable, colourist Rococo style. Bonito specialised in genre paintings and portraits, and the present canvas is a fine example of his skills. It is especially attractive as a h

Christ’s Descent into Limbo

Christ’s Descent into Limbo
Oil on canvas. 1516
Piombo, Sebastiano del

Wearing a white tunic and bearing the standard of victory, Christ leans toward Adam and Eve who, nude, hope to be rescued from Limbo and taken to the Kingdom of Heaven. This passage appears in the Apocrypha, specifically in the Gospel of Nicodemus, which tells of the Resurrection of Christ. The painting's composition reveals two fundamental influences: Michelangelo, in the monumentality of the fig

Leopoldo de Gregorio, Marquis of Esquilache
Oil on canvas. 1759
Bonito, Giuseppe

This refined portrait is the only one known to date of the Marquis of Esquilache (1699-1785). He accompanied Charles III to Madrid and was appointed Minister of the Treasury. The inkwell and staff of office allude to his many Neapolitan titles, while the letter destined Alla sua maestà delle due Sicilie points to his links with the King.

Jesus Washing Peter's Feet
Oil on canvas. 1657
Arias Fernández, Antonio

This is one of a series of eleven canvases on Christ´s Passion that Arias painted for the cloister at the convent of San Felipe el Real. Others include Jesus Washing Peter´s Feet (P5985), Christ Before Pontius Pilate, Christ Bearing the Cross encounters Veronica (P3528) and a Crucifixion.This series with scenes from the Passion was first mentioned by Palomino (1724): He made eleven paintings for t

Two Bunches of Grapes with a Fly
Oil on canvas. 1630 - 1644
Pret, Miguel de (Attributed To)

Like its companion (P7906), this piece was acquired by the Museo del Prado with an attribution to Fernández el Labrador (doc. 1629-1657), a painter specialized in depictions of grapes. However, the similarity of both paintings to a canvas at the Museo Cerralbo (Madrid, Inv. no. 3898) on which Pret’s signature was discovered in 2013, explains its new attribution to that Flemish-born still-li

Immaculate Conception
Oil on canvas. Ca. 1660
Cerezo, Mateo

The Virgin’s facial type, the confident drawing and the forceful rendering of the spatial planes originally led this work to be attributed to Claudio Coello. But in 1986 more precise knowledge of the artistic personality of Mateo Cerezo led Rogelio Buendía and Ismael Gutiérrez Pastor to name him as its author. This attribution has been maintained and it rests on a comparison to signe

The Crowning with Thorns
Oil on slate. 1590 - 1598
Bassano, Leandro

The composition is derived from a Cristo incoronato di Spine done by Jacopo Bassano towards 1589-1590 (Rome, private collection), in which Ballarin clearly sees the influence of Titian´s Christ Crowned with Thorns (Munich, Alte Pinakothek, inv. 2272). The Galleria Sabauda in Turin houses a bottega replica which, like the Prado version, is painted on slate.Several aspects of the painting justify it

Saint Margaret resuscitating a Young Man
Oil on canvas. Ca. 1620
Serodine, Giovanni

This painting is both beautiful in appearance and enigmatic on account of its problems of attribution, its authorship having fluctuated between several artists, all belonging to the aesthetic environment of Michelangelo Merisi, Caravaggio. Indeed, although it is now definitely ascribed to Serodine, some critics still believe it to be the work of the latter. Its history can be traced back to 1647,

The Penintent Saint Jerome

Murillo, Bartolomé Esteban
The Penintent Saint Jerome
Oil on canvas. Ca. 1650
Murillo, Bartolomé Esteban

Jerome meditates before a crucifix in the solitude of his retreat. The numerous objects depicted around him refer to different aspects of his life. The books, papers and writing equipment allude to his celebrated intellectual activities, the skull to his acts of penitence, and the red hat to his status as a cardinal.

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

Saint Peter liberated by an Angel
Oil on canvas. 1652 - 1657
Cano, Alonso

Saint Peter was sleeping when an angel woke him in order to break his chains and release him from prison. The stone block on which the saint is sleeping and the keys and sandals on the floor are his identifying attributes. The painting’s unusual format reflects its original function as an over-door in the convent of the Ángel Custodio (Guardian Angel) in Granada.

Saint Jerome
Oil on canvas. 1656 - 1657
Valdés Leal, Juan de

Large series of paintings for religious orders were painted throughout the seventeenth century. They include free-standing figures of saints and scenes with more complex compositions. That is the case of the present work, which belongs to a series of saints made around 1657 by Valdés Leal for the Sacristy of the Convent of San Jerónimo in Seville. The series was scattered in the nine

Vouet, Simon

This almost family scene shows the Christ Child and Saint John embracing each other while their respective mothers, Mary and Elizabeth, look on. The moment is witnessed by Saint Catherine, who accompanies them. She is leaning on a large wooden wheel, which symbolizes her martyrdom. The Lamb in the lower left corner alludes to the Passion of Christ and saddens the moment with its announcement of hi
