Still Life with Small Pears, Bread, Flask, Bowl and Dry Leaves
Oil on canvas. 1760
Meléndez, Luis Egidio

Sobre una tosca mesa de madera, descrita táctilmente con los pequeños detalles de la calidad del material, visibles en nudos y muescas, aparecen desordenadamente situadas unas cuantas “peritas de San Juan” y un pan en segundo término, junto al cual se eleva una alcarraza de loza muy blanca que bien pudiera ser andaluza. Se denomina popularmente “jarra de cuatro picos” y muestra una decoración de i

Francis Basset, 1st Baron of Dunstanville
Oil on canvas. 1778
Batoni, Pompeo

This full-length portrait by Pompeo Batoni shows a young English nobleman dressed in a scarlet coat, posing against the Roman countryside. The picture conforms to the Grand Tour portrait model of which Batoni, together with other artists such as Anton Raphael Mengs, became a leading practitioner, attaining success particularly among British patrons. Here the sitter is holding a walking stick and a

María Luisa of Parma, Princess of Asturias
Oil on canvas. Ca. 1765
Mengs, Anton Raphael

Mengs painted these portraits of the heirs to the Spanish throne -the prince and princess of Asturias, Carlos de Borbón and Maria Luisa of Parma- on the occasion of their wedding. As the daughter of Philip I, Duke of Parma, and Louise Isabelle of France, and thus granddaughter of Kings Philip V and Louis XV, Maria Luisa was Queen Consort of Spain between 1788 and 1808. She wears a light-col

The Venetian Charlatan
Oil on canvas. Ca. 1765
Tiepolo, Giovanni Domenico

These two paintings (P7804 and P7805) are part of a series on similar subjects, yet they stand out among Giandomenico`s work. These works are small depictions of everyday life in Venice, exquisitely rendered with a very agile touch that reflects the technical skills Giandomenico learnt from his father. This genre work is infrequent in Giandomenico`s oeuvre. In Spain the only known works of this so

Saint Anne, the Virgin and the Christ Child

Saint Anne, the Virgin and the Christ Child
Oil on canvas. 1760 - 1770
Ramírez de Arellano, Juan

This is a preparatory sketch for a larger canvas in the Museo del Romanticismo (Madrid). It depicts the seated Virgin with the Christ Child between her knees. Behind them, Saint Anne looks up to heaven where various angels are to be seen. The canvas reflects the influence of the Spanish painter Pablo Pernicharo (died 1760) and the Italian Corrado Giaquinto (1703-1766), who both taught Ramír

Robert Butcher of Walthamstow

Gainsborough, Thomas
Robert Butcher of Walthamstow
Oil on canvas. Ca. 1765
Gainsborough, Thomas

This portrait of a man in a wig has the subtle psychological penetration typical of Gainsborough’s portraits executed in Bath in the 1760s. Its austere, apparently simple composition reveals the technical mastery of the artist’s works at this period, prior to the development of his more brilliant and sumptuous mature style.

Maria Amalia of Saxony
Oil on unlined canvas. Ca. 1761
Mengs, Anton Raphael

A frontal view of the Queen. She sits, wearing a red silk dress with white sleeves and bonnet. Her right arm rests very naturally on a table, while her left holds a book. She is marking one of the pages with her finger as though she had just interrupted her reading. This is quite common in female portraits. Maria Amalia was born to Friedrich Augustus III, King of Poland and elector of Saxony; and

A cartoon for the tapestry to be hung in the Prince of Asturias´s quarters at the El Pardo Palace. Two Majos appear at the center of the composition, playing characteristic 18th-century Spanish narrow-wasted popular guitars with five double strings (as indicated by their ten visible tuning pegs). Baroque guitars had five double strings, but around 1760 another pair was added, although both t

Portrait of a Clergyman
Oil on canvas. 1756 - 1760
Reynolds, Sir Joshua

This is an early work by Reynolds. It lacks the verve and brilliance of his later output but is imbued with a direct, intimate mood and a degree of psychological insight. The light functions to highlight the face against the dark background, as well as the clerical collar and the hand holding the book.

The Holy Trinity, the Virgin and Saints
Oil on canvas. Ca. 1755
Giaquinto, Corrado

Corrado Giaquinto had frequent contacts with Spain as of 1735 or earlier. But the death of Jacopo Amigoni in 1752 led to his being summoned to Madrid the next year. During his stay in the Spanish Court, he earned the highest honors given to a painter in that era. He became First Painter to the Court in August 1753 and director of the Academy of San Fernando that December. His main mission was the

Landscape with Figures
Oil on canvas. 1740 - 1760
Rodríguez de Miranda, Pedro

Rodríguez de Miranda was a leading landscape painter during the reigns of Philip V and his successors Ferdinand VI and Charles III. These three landscapes owe a debt to the seventeenth-century Flemish tradition. The larger two form a pair, although they may have belonged to a series of panoramic views. The third, which is smaller, depicts Christ and the Woman of Samaria (John 4, 1-42).

Queen Maria Amalia of Saxony
Oil on canvas. Ca. 1744
Bonito, Giuseppe

Charles III described Maria Amalia of Saxony (1724-1760) as possessing the wit of an angel, and felt himself to be the happiest and most fortunate man in the world. The portrait of his young wife reflects his affectionate words and the complicity between the married couple, since appearing in it is the crown that Charles wore in Palermo on the day of his enthronement as King of Naples and Sicily.

En primer término unos arenques ahumados ofrecen sus irregulares superficies junto a unas cebolletas de pulido contorno; al lado de ellos un pan abombado aporta su nota clara y maciza. En segundo plano se ve una jarra o puchero, panzudo, de alfarería, típico del siglo XVIII, cubierto con una tejoleta (fragmento) de plato talaverano o de Puente del Arzobispo, con la decoración llamada de “rosilla”

José Nicolás de Azara
Oil on panel. 1774
Mengs, Anton Raphael

El retrato de Nicolás de Azara, de Anton Rafael Mengs, que conservaban aún los herederos del retratado, es una de las obras más singulares del artista bohemio desde el punto de vista artístico e histórico. La relación de Azara con Mengs se inició probablemente en 1765, ya que al erudito se debió en ese año la iniciativa de la medalla conmemorativa del casamiento de los príncipes de Asturias, con d

Still Life with Plums, Figs, Bread, Barrel, Jug and Other Vessels
Oil on canvas. 1760 - 1770
Meléndez, Luis Egidio

A compendium of common motifs in Meléndez´s oeuvre is found in this painting, affording it a sense of proximity and trueness to life of great artistic and documentary value. Set out among plums and figs on the characteristic wooden tabletop with visible grains and knots are a loaf of bread and a typical Talavera or Puente del Arzobispo wedding jug in white with an ochre-yellow antimon

Still Life with Jug, Bread and Basket with Tableware
Oil on canvas. 1760
Meléndez, Luis Egidio

In the foreground of this painting, a loaf of bread rests on a knife, its foreshortened handle jutting out past the edge of the wooden surface on which the various objects are arranged. Next to it sits a coarse, glazed earthenware jug, which could hold milk or some kind of preserved food. The style of the jug recalls pottery traditionally produced in Alcorcón and Camporreal (towns within the provi
