The Painter's Family
Oil on canvas. 1621 - 1622
Jordaens, Jacques

This attractive group portrait, one of the most interesting of the 17th-century Dutch school on account of its bourgeois spirit with aristocratic leanings, is an extraordinary skilful depiction of the artist´s close family. Jordaens portrays himself with his wife Catharina van Noort and their first child Elizabeth, born on 26 June 1617, whose age allows us to date the work approximately. Cat

Self-Portrait
Oil on canvas. 1670 - 1680
Muñoz, Sebastián

Considerado como pintado hacia 1688, de tratarse del autorretrato de este artista, nacido en 1650, demostraría contar en realidad unos veinticinco años aproximadamente, por lo cual convendría adelantar la fecha de su datación y estimar que se habría pintado antes de su estancia en Italia (1680-1684), comprobándose que ya se hallaba suficientemente capacitado como para pintar obras de cierta calida

Table
Oil on canvas. 1636 - 1650
Benedetti, Andries

On a table partially covered by a green tablecloth, the painter has placed a white cloth, delicate gold-worked jars and glasses that reflect the light, a dish with ham, bread and a large basket of peaches and several types of grapes. There is also a half-peeled lemon, typical of Nordic still-lifes. In the background, there is a large red curtain and a gallery with columns. Charged with symbolic an

Old Man reading by Candlelight

Old Man reading by Candlelight
Oil on canvas. 1700 - 1706
Schalcken, Godfried

The half-length figure of an old man is depicted against a dark background. He looks at the viewer out of the corner of his eye, with his torso turned slightly to the left and his head to the right, as he holds a candle in his right hand to light up a manuscript in his left, of which we can only see the back. Old Man reading by Candlelight is clearly a night scene, a genre in which Schalcken speci

Philip IV
Oil on canvas. Ca. 1653
Velázquez, Diego Rodríguez de Silva y

This image can be identified as that of a king and as a portrait of Philip IV on the basis of others of the monarch. In fact, nothing about the clothes or the sitter`s actions suggests his royal status except the easily recognisable physical features of the Habsburg dynasty, in particular the prominent chin.This portrait and the one who is in the National Gallery gave rise to a large number of ver

The Hare Hunt
Oil on canvas. Ca. 1665
Wouwerman, Philips

This painting is listed in the royal inventories as the companion piece to Hunting Party and Fishermen (P2147). It is a panoramic view in which hunters, animals and picturesque buildings are set in a sweeping landscape. However, here the wooded, mountainous scenery evidences the influence of Italianate landscape painting. The figure groupings are designed to steer the viewer`s gaze not to the back

The Duke of Pastrana
Oil on canvas. Ca. 1679
Carreño de Miranda, Juan

Here we are presented with a young man, elegantly dressed in black, standing within a landscape beside a horse whose mane is richly adorned with blue ribbons and bows. The man wears his hair very long, as was popular during the reign of Charles II, and carries a sword at his side. Hanging on his chest is a pendant with the cross of the Order of Saint James, which also appears prominently on his ca

Dead Cockerel
Oil on panel. 1659 - 1660
Metsu, Gabriël

Recent restoration has enabled a much better appreciation of this picture, since the thick layer of oxidised glaze that previously covered the surface made it impossible to judge the space and depth of the composition. As a result, the cockerel´s body is no longer outlined against the dark, plain background, but seen hanging from a string above a table inside some kind of architectural space -an a

Anne Marie d'Orléans
Oil on canvas. Ca. 1684
Mignard, Pierre (Workshop Of)

Anne Marie d´Orléans (1669 – 1728) was the first Queen consort of Sardinia by marriage to Victor Amadeus II of Savoy and younger sister of Queen Maria Luisa of Orleans. This canvas is one of a group of portraits collected by María Luisa de Orleans, first wife of Carlos II of Spain, which would become part of the Royal Collection. Some of these paintings must have decorated the

The Buffoon Francisco Bazán
Oil on canvas. Ca. 1680
Carreño de Miranda, Juan

Francisco Bazán was a buffoon at the court of Charles II between 1676 and 1689. Carreño, who was reaching the end of his career when he painted this work, depicts the sitter as if delivering a note. The composition and way of inserting the figure into the pictorial space recall Velázquez’s portrait of Pablo de Valladolid.

These two paintings were first shown in Amsterdam in 1858. On that occasion the sitters were identified as Lambert Witsen and his wife Sara Nuyts owing to the woman`s purported similarity to the portrait of the latter (Amsterdam Historisch Museum, inv. SA 989) dated 1684 and included thus by Jan de Baen (1633-1702) in his work, Portrait of the Regents of the Spinhuis in Amsterdam.Moes (1897-1905)

Father Francesco Pepe
Oil on canvas. 1758 - 1759
Mengs, Anton Raphael

Francesco Pepe (c. 1684-1759), an influential Jesuit preacher in Naples, promoted the dogma of the Immaculate Conception and acted as intermediary between Pope Benedict XIV and the Bourbon monarch Charles VII, King of Naples and Sicily. Mengs painted the priest in Rome in 1758 on their only meeting. Cut down at an early date, the canvas may originally have shown Pepe seated, as suggested by the sl

Table with Desserts
Oil on canvas. Second third of the XVII century
Benedetti, Andries

In a room open to a landscape is a table with various foodstuffs, along with metalwork, dishes and even a pipe. The placement of numerous objects on a broad wooden surface is customary in works by Jan Davidsz de Heem (1606-1683/1684), to whom this work was first attributed. It had previously been considered the work of Benedetti through comparison with his other still lifes. The casual aspect offe

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&
