The Consecration of Saint Ambrose as Archbishop
Oil on canvas. Ca. 1673
Valdés Leal, Juan de

The episodes from the life of Saint Ambrose were commissioned from Juan de Valdés Leal (1622-1690) by Ambrosio Ignacio Spínola y Guzmán (1632-1684), Archbishop of Seville, for his private oratory. They are markedly specular in nature given that the saint and archbishop share the same name, ecclesiastical rank and connections with northern Italy. The series was conceived by Sp&

River Landscape with Riders and a Tower
Oil on canvas. XVII century
Anonymous

On entering the Museum this painting was inventoried as a product of the Sevillian school, though the 1876 catalogue lists it as a work executed in the style of Jan Both. Valdivieso (1973) considers it to be an eighteenth-century Italian work, while Barghahn (1986) identifies it as one of the landscapes in the Palace of the Buen Retiro inventory, though in fact neither the measurements nor the des

Vase of Flowers
Oil on canvas. 1694 - 1700
Belvedere, Andrea

Towards the edges of two moulded stone shelves rest two bronze vases with broad decorated bases and slender stems embraced, in one case by a group of tritons (P550) and, in the other by, a group of minute cherubs that support the upper section like dynamic Atlanteans (P549). These bases bear prodigious bouquets that are skilfully arranged with contrasting textures and colours that generate a marve

Garland of Flowers with a Landscape
Oil on canvas. 1652
Arellano, Juan de

Flower painting experienced its greatest development in the Netherlands -there were both Flemish and Dutch schools- and in the different regions of Italy. Both Northern and Mediterranean artists produced works that became known throughout Europe -especially in Spain, where they had a decisive influence on local artists. The present painting and its pendant (P2507) magnificently exemplify the depen

El Triunfo de la Iglesia
Oil on canvas. 1673
Teniers III, David

Around 1625, Peter Paul Rubens was commissioned by the Infanta Isabel Clara Eugenia, Governor of the Southern Netherlands, to design twenty tapestries which would exalt the mystery of the Eucharist for the convent of the Descalzas Reales in Madrid. David Teniers III copied four of these works in large in 1673.

Margaret Theresa of Spain

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

Landscape with Saint Rosalia of Palermo
Oil on canvas. 1634 - 1639
Swanevelt, Herman Van

The painting entered the Museum as an original by Jan Both, and it is recorded as such in subsequent inventories and catalogues until the edition of 1976. Further, up until 1972 it is described in the Museum publications as the companion piece to Landscape with Carthusian (Saint Bruno?) (P02064) and Landscape with Saint Benedict of Nursia (P02065). In 1959 Blunt identifies it as the landscape desc

Still Life with Fish and Turtle
Oil on canvas. Ca. 1680
Recco, Giuseppe

Giuseppe Recco, a member of one of the most famous families of Neapolitan still-life painters in the seventeenth century, was born in Naples on 12 July 1634. His vast output was consistently high in quality and is characterised by a marked cultural eclecticism, taking in a number of different still-life styles, from Spanish to northern European to Roman, with an unusual iconographic versatility.In

Margarita of Austria (1651-1673) was the daughter of Philip IV and Mariana of Austria. When Mazo painted her she was betrothed to the Emperor Leopold of Austria, whom she married in 1666. In this portrait Mazo`s treatment of the composition and colour reveal the influence of his father-in-law, Velázquez, to whom this work was formerly attributed. The fact that Velázquez was not respo

Beach with Fishermen
Oil on canvas. 1627
Willaerts, Adam

This painting is illustrative of the beach scenes monopolised in Utrecht by the Willaerts family, who combined the two typical genres of Dutch painting in their work: seascapes and genre scenes. They are derived from similar compositions by Hendrick Cornelisz. Vroom (ca. 1566-1640), although the lower horizon line employed by Adam Willaerts endows the scenes with greater spatial depth which is fur

Velázquez, Diego Rodríguez de Silva y (Follower Of)

The custom of placing the principal figure in a portrait alongside another being that was physically or socially inferior was common practice among artists who portrayed figures from the Spanish court in the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries. Kings, queens, princes and princesses all appeared accompanied by dwarfs, children or animals in a revealing play of hierarchies. This convention exalted t

The Virgin and Child
Oil on canvas. 1655 - 1660
Murillo, Bartolomé Esteban

In this painting, the Virgin is seated on a stone bench and is, herself, serving as a throne for the Christ Child, who rests on her right leg. The Virgin and Child are slightly larger than life-size and fill a major portion of the painting´s surface, creating a sense of monumentality. Murillo has placed both figures before a dark background, using the contrast of light and shadow to model their fe

Carreño de Miranda, Juan

The son of Felipe IV (1605-1665) and Mariana of Austria (1634-1696), Carlos II (1661-1700) was the last King of the Hapsburg Dynasty in Spain. He appears dressed in black, with the chain of the Golden Fleece around his neck. This order from Burgundy, to which he belonged, was first brought to Spain by Felipe el Hermoso (1578-1506). The young monarch (1661-1700) is depicted in the Hall of Mirrors,
