Bacchus and Ariadne
Oil on canvas. 1636 - 1638
Quellinus, Erasmus

La historia de Ariadna y el dios tiene dos momentos fundamentales: uno es el encuentro entre ellos en la isla de Naxos después de que ésta fuera abandonada allí por Teseo, tema que representó Tiziano para Alfonso I de Este y que ceunta Ovidio en las Metamorfosis en el libro VIII (174-182): "(...) El hijo de Egeo raptó a la hija de Minos, largó velas rumbo a Día, y en aquella playa abandonó, cruel,

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

View of the Castle in Gaucín
Oil on canvas. 1849
Pérez Villaamil y Duguet, Genaro

This view of the so-called Eagle’s Castle in Gaucín (Malaga), with the valley of the Genal River and the Plain of Gibraltar in the background, is similar to an earlier view by Villaamil’s master, the Scottish artist David Roberts (1796-1864). The touches of evening light emphasise this monumental vision of the mountains of Ronda, interpreted with a picturesque and evocative grandeur charact

Oil on canvas. 1787
Sánchez, Mariano Ramón

Trained from childhood at the Academy of San Fernando in Madrid, Mariano Sánchez specialized in landscapes and views. Contemporary documents reveal also a talent for miniatures and portraits, which took him to Lisbon in the service of the King of Portugal. In 1781, King Charles III commissioned him to paint a series of 118 vistas of ports, bays, islands, and arsenals in Spain. In 1803, for

Herd of Bulls by a River below a Castle
Oil on canvas. 1837
Pérez Villaamil y Duguet, Genaro

A herd of bulls graze beside the backwaters of a quiet river, closely watched by the herdsmen resting on the bank. Farther back, two barges filled with local men prepare to cross the river. The closer of the two is being loaded with sacks of merchandise -possible contraband- carried by two donkeys near a ruined estate. A hill behind the lush woods that border the river is topped by an imposing for

Josefa Coello de Portugal
Oil on canvas. 1855
Madrazo y Kuntz, Federico de

In the mid-nineteenth century Federico de Madrazo produced some of the most successful portraits of the Spanish bourgeoisie during the reign of Isabel II (1833-68), presenting them with the opulence that their social status demanded. In addition to his remarkable artistic ability, his female portraits are outstanding for their depiction of the accessories and adornments. These details are emphasis

Diptych with 42 Monumental Views of Spanish Cities
Oil on paper, panel, tin plate. 1835 - 1839
Pérez Villaamil y Duguet, Genaro

Genaro Pérez Villaamil (El Ferrol, 1807-Madrid, 1854) can be considered the most significant and influential Spanish Romantic landscape painter and an artist who had an intense interest, characteristic of that period, in depictions of cities and their monuments.The small size of the tin plates on which theses scenes are painted allowed Villaamil to work from the motif, as he generally did w

The Painter Francisco Bayeu
Oil on canvas. 1795
Goya y Lucientes, Francisco de

Court Painter, Director of the Academia de San Fernando in Madrid and a key artistic figure in the period, Bayeu was Goya’s brother-inlaw and their relations were at times extremely tense. This portrait, which was commissioned by Bayeu’s daughter for display at the Academy after the artist’s death in August 1795, is based on a selfportrait, now in a private collection.Goya emphasises Bayeu’s dry a

Fortune
Oil on canvas. 1636 - 1638
Rubens, Peter Paul (And Workshop)

In the autumn of 1636, Peter Paul Rubens was commissioned by agents of Philip IV to produce his largest series of painted canvases to decorate the recently completed hunting lodge at El Pardo, near Madrid -the Torre de la Parada. Documents reveal that he was already at work by December. His main assignment comprised some sixty mythological subjects and individual figures, chiefly drawn from Ovid´s

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

Cossiers, Jan

La historia de Prometeo, narrada en la obra Prometeo encadenado del poeta griego Esquilo y en la Teogonía del también poeta Hesiodo, cuenta como Prometeo robó el fuego de los dioses para dárselo a los hombres. La obra muestra el momento en el que Prometeo escapa del Olimpo con la llama, girando la cabeza para evitar que se descubra el robo. Esta pintura forma parte del programa decorativo de la To

Pentecost
Oil on canvas. Ca. 1769
Bayeu, Francisco

While this work has traditionally been identified as one of the sketches that Francisco Bayeu made for the lost compositions he painted in 1796 for the cloister of the convent of San Pascual in Aranjuez (Annunciation, Nativity, Ascension and Pentecost), that identification is actually erroneous, as Morales y Marín discovered in his two studies of that artist (1979 and 1995). After studying

Diana and her Nymphs surprised by Satyrs
Oil on canvas. 1639 - 1640
Rubens, Peter Paul

Diana the huntress is resting with her court of Nymphs in a clearing in the woods when she is attacked by a group of Satyrs. Rubens turned this painting into a virtuoso exercise in composition. In the foreground, two volumes lead to the rest of the scene: on the left are the hunting trophies attained by the nymphs, and on the right, a reclining nymph with her back to the viewer, one of the most se

Orpheus and Eurydice
Oil on canvas. 1636 - 1638
Rubens, Peter Paul (And Workshop)

Orpheus descends into the Underworld to recover his wife, Eurydice, who died after being bitten by a serpent. Pluto and Proserpina, the god and goddess of the underworld, are so moved by the music of his lyre that they accede to his request. The only condition they impose is that he contains his desire and not look at his beloved until they have both fully departed the underworld. On the basis of

The Three Graces
Oil on oak panel. 1630 - 1635
Rubens, Peter Paul

The Graces were minor deities but in this splendid work Peter Paul Rubens devotes his best effort to them. The three goddesses embrace each other forming a circle. The positioning of their feet suggests movement; they seem to dance gently. The setting is as luscious as the nude bodies of the goddesses. A field illuminated by sunlight filtered through dense trees stretches to a distant blue. The sh
