Joseph and the Wife of Putiphar
Oil on canvas. Ca. 1555

Joseph is a handsome and virtuous slave falsely accused of rape by his master´s wife, whose advances he has rejected. He is imprisoned, but eventually raised to the highest office by Pharaoh (Exodus: 39). Joseph and the Wife of Putiphar and Susannah and the Elders (P386) can be understood as parables of righteousness threatened and preserved, but here -as was usual for artists of the Renaissance a

The Triumph of David
Oil on canvas. Ca. 1630
Poussin, Nicolas

In an architectural setting, a winged Victory crowns David with a laurel wreath. The latter holds his sword with one hand and looks directly at Goliath´s decapitated head, which rests on some pieces of armor. Three putti complete the group. One of them plays an instrument while another hands Victory the royal crown destined for David. This image alludes to a passage from the Old Testament (Samuel

Oil on canvas. 1635 - 1645
Velázquez, Diego Rodríguez de Silva y

In the foreground of this canvas, a figure dressed in green holds in his hands what appears to be a pack of cards and looks directly at the viewer, as if to invite us to participate in the game. He is in the countryside, seated under the protection of a rocky crag. Behind him is a landscape that ends in a range of mountains on the horizon. Velázquez painted the portrait around 1638, and it

Wearing a child´s dress of branched yellow fabric with silver adornments and the sash and cross of the Order of the Saint-Esprit, the future monarch rests his right hand on a small dog that stands atop a chair partially covered by a curtain. His gesture seeks to calm the animal, who is barking at a monkey on the other side of the prince. The small simian is attempting to grab his leash, whic

In a lush, wooded landscape on the banks of a quiet river, a nude woman, sitting on a richly colored red cloak, gestures to two male figures posed beside her. Supporting a glazed jug in her lap, she points to the standing nude boy, who pours wine from a golden ewer into the mouth of a kneeling satyr. Wearing a grapevine belt and a crown, the satyr, a half-man, half-goat creature associated with un

The Death of Eurydice
Oil on canvas. 1636 - 1638
Quellinus, Erasmus

La historia de Eurídice aparece en dos ocasiones en el ciclo de la Torre de la Parada; su muerte y su truncada salida de los infiernos. Su muerte es narrada por Ovidio en el libro X (5-10) de las Metamorfosis: "(...) Pues cuando paseaba la novia por un prado acompañada de un grupo de Náyades, murió al sufrir en un tobillo la mordedura de una serpiente". El lienzo es obra de E. Quellinus, discípulo

Vos, Paul de

Este es uno de los varios perros de caza pintados por Paul de Vos que habrían decorado la Torre de la Parada. Todos ellos aparecen en un paisaje abierto de similares características; falta de vegetación en el primer término donde aparecen rocas, en las cuales el artista aprovecha para firmar, árboles al fondo en diferentes planos y un gran desarrollo del cielo. El tratamiento del paisaje guarda ci

Parnassus, the mythological mountain of Apollo and the Muses is the scene for a celebration of the Arts, especially Poetry. Apollo offers the nectar of the gods to a poet, probably Homer, who is crowned with a laurel wreath by Calliope, the muse of epic poetry. The putti in the foreground offer the poets the water of inspiration that flows from the spring of Castalia, personified by the nude woman

Aranjuez, some 40 kilometres from Madrid, was one of the so-called royal residences (Sitios Reales) all situated within a radius of less than 80 kilometres from the capital that were intended for the relaxation of the king and his court. Aranjuez´s location on the shores of the Tajo River, amid fertile countryside, led Philip II to construct a palace that was gradually expanded by his successors,

The duchess wears a red silk masquerade gown with a mother-of-pearl overskirt decorated with branch motifs and fur edging, under a red-and-gold coat that matches her whimsical headdress. Holding a black mask in her right hand, she stands in a gallery through which we see the sky and some trees that create a vanishing point while simultaneously allowing the artist to include some elements of offici

This portrait of Charles IV as the Prince of Asturias has as its pendant a portrait of his wife, María Luisa of Parma, also in the Museo del Prado (P2189). Anton Raphael Mengs had come to Spain in 1761 at the invitation of Charles III in order to serve as pintor de camára, or court painter, the most prestigious appointment for an artist in the service of the king. He probably produce

A former owner of this impressive drawing believed it to be from the hand of the Bolognese painter Bartolomeo Bagnacavallo, who, according to Vasari, travelled to Rome together with Biagio Pupini (active between 1511 and 1551) when Raphael was active there, from 1508 to 1520. The precise nature of Bartolomeo´s association with Raphael remains elusive: he is often referred to as his pupil, as in th
