Landscape with Waterfall

Landscape with Waterfall
Oil on canvas. 1650 - 1660
Dughet, Gaspard

A landscape with waterfalls appears at one side of the composition. At the other, various buildings oppose their rational and geometrical mass to Nature’s freer expression. The canvas’s human presence consists of various tiny figures in different parts of the composition. The suggestion of the Tivoli cascades and their wild surroundings are the main argument of this painting, which is characterist

Departure from the Inn
Oil on panel. Ca. 1660
Wouwerman, Philips

The picture belongs to a group of scenes set inside a stable which Wouwerman began painting in 1655. This cycle is an exception in the painter`s output, which was mainly focused on outdoor scenes. Most of these stable views are based on the same compositional scheme: two-thirds of the panel is occupied by the dark interior of the stable, which opens out on the left towards a landscape painted in m

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

Here the main scene takes place in the foreground, where a group of distinguished huntsmen ride down a narrow path along a river bank crowded with popular figures including horse-riders, wayfarers, bathers and beggars. Schumacher (2006) considers it to have been produced in Wouwerman`s studio. Recent restoration, however, has revealed figures of such quality that they must indeed be attributed to

A Huntsman

Wouwerman, Philips

The original composition was enlarged on the right side with a section of wood of around 10.5 cm, glued against the grain. During the restoration carried out in 1994 it was noted that the preparation and execution of this section differed from the rest of the composition, indicating that it was added later. Isabella Farnese`s seal, printed on the back, can be found on the original panel but not in

Mary, Lady Van Dyck
Oil on canvas. Ca. 1640
Dyck, Anthony Van

In 1640, Van Dyck married Mary Ruthven in England. This lady of Scottish origin died in 1645. He portrayed his wife with her hair pulled back and an oak-leaf headdress alluding to her husband´s name, which means “oak” or “holm oak” in Dutch. She wears a shiny blue dress with a large décolleté, a pearl necklace and a bracelet with which she plays before the viewer in a gesture of clea

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

Charles III
Oil on canvas. Ca. 1765
Mengs, Anton Raphael

This image of King Charles III was paired with a portrait of his wife, Maria Amalia of Saxony (P2201), although the image of the queen was not painted in her presence. Instead, it was invented on the basis of other likenesses, as she died before the artist was able to paint her.Mengs’s effigie of Charles III became the monarch’s official image and was therefore the object of various replicas. One

Alsloot, Denis Van

The inhabitants of Antwerp enjoy skating on the frozen water in the moats alongside the city walls. Divided into groups, some disguised and others elegantly dressed, the represent diverse attitudes and stereotypes from the celebration of Carnival. Images of feasts and celebrations in the Low Countries are common in the work of Denis van Alsloot. In his customary manner, he creates a very detailed

Jorg Zörer’s Wife (?)
Oil on panel. 1531
Amberger, Christoph

This bust portrait is a companion to that of the sitter´s husband (P02183). Shown at somewhat less than half- length, she wears a white, Nordic-style cap and a severely cut dress, and holds a white carnation in her right hand. According to an inscription in the upper part of the work she is twenty-eight. By placing her over a background that simulates a wooden surface, Amberger achieves an e

Winter Landscape with Skaters
Oil on canvas. 1629
Droochsloot, Joost Cornelisz.

Droochsloot was the only artist in the Utrecht school who cultivated the painting of scenes featuring winter landscapes and pastimes, a favourite genre in sixteenth -and seventeenth- century Dutch painting.This scene is not painted from nature, but draws on Flemish compositions produced by the circle of Pieter Brueghel the Elder (1525-1569), featuring large numbers of people from different social

Still Life with Watermelon, Pastries, Bread and Wine
Oil on canvas. 1770
Meléndez, Luis Egidio

Luis Meléndez distinguished himself as the greatest bodegón, or still-life, painter in late eighteenth-century Spain. By this time, the popularity of the genre had declined in Spain and was not practiced by any of Meléndez’ contemporaries at court. Even so, Meléndez painted over one hundred bodegones in his lifetime, leading art historians to infer that he took a person

Pilate washing his Hands
Oil on copperplate. After 1655
Giordano, Luca

Esta pintura ha sido relacionada con Durero (1471-1528) y con Lucas de Leiden (1494-1533). Supone un sobresaliente ejercicio de estilo que manifiesta su atenta observación de originales alemanes del siglo XV, cuya técnica Giordano intentó imitar. En ella Giordano aplicó una pincelada minuciosa y precisa de trazos cortos que reproducen con rigurosa exactitud el aspecto de los objetos, la incidencia

The Virgin and Child
Oil on panel. 1543
Hemessen, Jan Sanders Van

The Virgin sits on the ground, holding her nude son on her knees. He caresses her face while playing with his own swaddling clothes. The customary monumental scale of Hemessen´s figures is softened here, but this work maintains his characteristic soft and detailed brushstrokes, chiaroscuro transitions and abundant browns and reds. This painting by Jan Sanders van Hemessen displays a combination of

The Young Louis XV
Oil on canvas. 1714
Gobert, Pierre

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

Hunting Party and Fishermen
Oil on canvas. 1660 - 1662
Wouwerman, Philips

This is one of the elegant hunting scenes Wouwerman painted in the early 1660s that reveal his extraordinary talent as landscape artist. In these works, rather than depicting a hunting scene set in front of a landscape, as was typical of his A Stop at an Inn (P2152), he presents a vast panoramic view that occupies the entire surface and is adorned with figures of hunters and animals, diverse genre

The Apparition of the Virgin to Saint Bernard
Oil on canvas. Ca. 1655
Murillo, Bartolomé Esteban

The Virgin appears miraculously to Saint Bernard to offer him her milk as a reward for his praises and defense. The Saint is surprised while studying and falls to his knees. His desk and bookshelves appear behind him and other books, and an abbot´s staff, lie on the floor. The subject and size of this work suggest that it was probably an altar painting made for a Cistercian convent. Yet, there is
