Still Life with a silver beaker and a clock
Oil on panel. 1633
Heda, Willem Claesz

In addition to the Roemer goblet, other glasses common in this kind of monochrome still life presented here include the Berkemeyer, in this case tipped over and broken, and the delicate Façon-de-Venise wineglass, in fashion at the time and likewise made in the Netherlands. Also featured is an exquisitely decorated silver goblet. Alongside them is a knife with a sheath and an open clock that

Christ Crucified
Oil on canvas. 1780
Goya y Lucientes, Francisco de

The figure of Christ is depicted following the tradition of seventeenth-century Spanish religious painting, although the classical concept of beauty disseminated in Spain by Mengs and Bayeu is also evident. In addition, Goya softened the more cruel and dramatic aspects of this subject, emphasising the beauty of the nude body. The canvas was presented by the artist at the Real Academia de Bellas Ar

The Drawing Studio
Oil on canvas. 1780
Castillo, José del

A childhood scene located on a terrace beside a garden. Three elegantly clothed boys play with a cat. The academic drawing in the background, along with the portfolio and brush belonging to one of the boys, gave this work its name, as though it were an artistic study. This work belongs to a series of scenes related to education that sought to show the Enlightenment´s pedagogical ideas, which relat

Kitchen still life with a hare and two partridges
Oil on canvas. Ca. 1785
Nani, Mariano

Utilising an almost photographic, frontal composition that enhances the naturalism of the image, Mariano Nani here depicts with great descriptive effectiveness the catch from a day’s hunting, which has just been tied with a piece of rope and suspended from nails hammered into the wall. We see a large hare, with white and hazelnut-coloured fur, hanging upside down by one of its hind legs, to allow

Allegory of Fame
Oil on canvas. Ca. 1775
Castillo, José del

This singular composition, which can be dated 1775, was painted at the height of the 18th century, although, in aesthetic terms, the Baroque was already in decline as it entered its final phase. Its decorative conception echoes the refinement of the rococo, although it draws much of its material from the anaglyphic repertory of the mature Renaissance—conveniently polished—when artists were recover

Alegoría de la Aritmética
Oil on canvas. Ca. 1775
Castillo, José del

The compositional structure and depiction of details reveal the artist’s ability to devise decorative elements such as garlands, flowers and scroll-work and to combine them with figures. The motifs are set against a blue background that gives rise to a harmonious and striking composition.

Antonio Ugarte and his wife, Maria Antonia Larrazábal
Oil on canvas. 1833
López Portaña, Vicente

Don Antonio Ugarte, a prominent member of the entourage of Ferdinand VII, and his wife, posed for the first painter to the king, with an evident penchant for ostentation. He is wearing the full-dress uniform of the king’s secretary, including the cane and hat resting on the table, and also boasts different badges of office and honours. She, dressed in Imperial garb and adorned with splendid jewels

Still Life with a silver tazza, a roemer and oysters
Oil on panel. 1632
Heda, Willem Claesz

The painting belongs to the type of still life designated by Vroom as monochrome banketjes, pieces first executed by Heda towards the end of the 1620s that became very popular in the Netherlands and abroad, as illustrated by the fact that there were two in the inventory of Rubens´s property. There are sufficient grounds to interpret these compositions as moralising, religious or allegorical works.

The Holy Family with the Infant Saint John the Baptist
Oil on canvas. 1775 - 1780
Goya y Lucientes, Francisco de

The pyramidal composition and precise, polished forms of both the bodies and the drapery, all emphasised by the intense illumination, indicate the continuing and direct influence of Anton Rafael Mengs.The treatment of the subject also recalls the works of Goya’s Italian period, during which time he was able to study numerous paintings of this subject. The figures of the children are comparable to

Boys Playing Chito
Oil on canvas. 1780
Castillo, José del

Three boys -two standing and one seated- are playing chito, a game in which metal disks known as tejos are thrown at a piece of carved wood (the chito) resting on the ground with a coin on top of it. The goal is to topple the chito, causing the coin to fall. The player whose tejo is closest to the fallen coin wins.

Isaac Henrique Sequeira
Oil on canvas. Ca. 1775
Gainsborough, Thomas

Sequeira (1738-1816) was a celebrated doctor who numbered Gainsborough among his patients. Born into a Jewish family in Lisbon, he moved to Bordeaux, studied in Leyden and eventually settled in London where he practised his profession. Gainsborough follows Van Dyck’s interest in capturing the character of the sitter and conveys Sequeira’s refined character. He presents him in a dignified pose with

Vase of Flowers
Oil on panel. 1780 - 1788
Espinós, Benito

This flower painting brings to mind works the artist gave to the Prince of Asturias, Charles of Bourbon, in 1788. Shortly before he took the throne as King Charles IV. An early interest in art in general, and painting in particular, led this monarch to amass an excellent collection at his residence near the Monastery of San Lorenzo de El Escorial, and the numerals (360) that appear on this panel c

Allegory of Astronomy
Oil on canvas. Ca. 1775
Castillo, José del

This canvas, like P7349, is one of a group of six preparatory designs for the tapestries made for the private room of the Princess of Asturias in the Royal Palace. In each canvas a putto holds symbols referring to the work’s allegorical subject, in this case Astronomy’s armillary sphere and compasses. Based on Renaissance ornamentation, the delicacy and colour as well as the floral and bird motifs

This gallant scene in French Rococo style is adapted to Spanish tastes, with the characters dressed in the traditional Madrid fashion as majos and majas. A couple dance in the center of the composition. They are flanked on the right by a group of musicians and on the left, by other couples. Like Watteau, Camarón frames a series of gallant loves scenes in a garden, the setting par excellence

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
