Saint Francis comforted by an Angel

Saint Francis comforted by an Angel
Oil on canvas. Ca. 1620
Ribalta, Francisco

Toward the end of the 17th century, Saint Francis’s iconography expanded as many of the classical biographic themes were replaced with more complex episodes -especially trance visions- mystical ecstasies that reflected the new Baroque esthetic and offered, in the case of Saint Francis, a new approach to the depiction of a figure whose life was being presented by his Order in terms of biographical

Christ the Saviour with the Eucharist
Oil on panel. 1545 - 1550
Juanes, Juan de (Vicente Juan Masip)

Taken together, these three works clearly convey a Eucharistic meaning. They depict Christ holding up the chalice and the Host, flanked by two Old Testament figures: King Melchizedek, bearing bread and wine (P00853), and the priest Aaron with a jar of incense (P00854). The three panels were part of the tabernacle of the high altar in the church of the Birth of the Virgin in Fuente de la Higuera (V

Taken together, these three works clearly convey a Eucharistic meaning. They depict Christ holding up the chalice and the Host (P00844), flanked by two Old Testament figures: King Melchizedek, bearing bread and wine (P00853), and the priest Aaron with a jar of incense (P00854). The three panels were part of the tabernacle of the high altar in the church of the Birth of the Virgin in Fuente de la H

Joaquina Téllez-Girón, daugther of the 9th Duke and Duchess of Osuna
Oil on canvas. 1798
Esteve, Agustín

Joaquina Téllez-Girón (1784-1851) married José de Silva Bazán, the future Marquis of Santa Cruz, in 1801. Goya had painted her as a child in the family portrait and alone, at the height of her beauty and as a muse, in 1805. However, Esteve’s less brilliant technique fails to render the subtle transparencies of her gauze dress with the same accomplishment as his master.

Saint John the Baptist and the Franciscan Heinrich von Werl
Oil on oak panel. 1438
Campin, Robert

An inscription in gothic letters identifies the sitter and dates the work: "In the year 1438, I painted this effigy of Master Heinrich von Werl, Doctor of Cologne". A Provincial of the Franciscan Order in that German city beginning in 1432, Werl was full Professor of Theology and quite a famous preacher. On a trip to Tournai, he was able to contact the painter and have himself portrayed inside a r

Abraham and the three Angels
Oil on panel. Ca. 1640
Bramer, Leonaert

The date of this painting has been the subject of critical debate for over a century. The 1889 edition of the Prado catalogue states that it was signed but fails to mention a date. The 1910 version describes it as being signed and dated in 1620. The question is not addressed in subsequent publications until that of 1985, which refers to it as being signed and dated in 1630, the year that is again

Hecuba' s Grief
Oil on copperplate. Ca. 1630
Bramer, Leonaert

Both the royal inventories and Stchavinsky (1912) identify this scene as the story of Hecuba, wife of Priam of Troy. Wichmann (1923) disagrees, believing it to be the Finding of the bodies of Hero and Leander, an interpretation supported by Valdivieso (1973), Pigler (1974), Salerno (1977-80) and Sluijter (1986). Luna (1984), however, has called attention to the inscription HECVBA / OVIDIVS./ LIB.

Still Life
Oil on panel. Ca. 1806
Montalvo, Bartolomé

This still life of birds and fish is set in a kitchen. In the centre of the composition is a duck and other birds hanging from hooks while on the left is a basket of small fish. Montalvo’s careful, solid brushstroke convincingly reproduces the details and conveys the tactile qualities of the dead animals and other objects.

Saint Stephen accused of Blasphemy
Oil on panel. 1555 - 1562
Juanes, Juan de (Vicente Juan Masip)

Juan de Juanes depicts the episode in the Acts of the Apostles when Saint Stephen declared before the Sanhedrin: “I see the heavens opened and the Son of Man standing on the right hand of God.” When they heard him the priests “cried out with a loud voice and stopped their ears and rushed together at him” (Acts 7, 56 and 57). The classical architecture of the temple is a striking element in the com

Infanta Maria Josefa
Oil on canvas. 1800
Goya y Lucientes, Francisco de

This is one of ten preparatory sketches for The Family of Charles IV. Goya executed them in Aranjuez shortly after he was made First Court Painter. All make use of a reddish-orange ground. Daughter of Charles III and Maria Amalia of Saxony, the sitter died unmarried in 1801 aged 57. Her coquettish hair ornament has a birdof- paradise feather, while the false beauty spot on her temple was an outmod

The Marchioness of Santa Cruz
Oil on unlined canvas. 1805
Goya y Lucientes, Francisco de

Joaquina Téllez-Girón y Pimentel (1784-1851) was the daughter of the Duke and Duchess of Osuna and Marchioness of Santa Cruz by her marriage to José Gabriel de Silva y Walstein in 1801. A friend of poets and literati, she was one of the most admired women of her time. Goya presents her wearing white crêpe and reposing on a canapé upholstered in red velvet. She is

Still-Life
Oil on panel. Ca. 1806
Montalvo, Bartolomé

This still-life follows the traditional Spanish type, with the elements placed in apparent disorder on a rustic table or board and a plain background that suggests a kitchen setting. The competent handling aims to distinguish the different textures of the objects while avoiding excessive detail.

Saint Barbara
Oil on oak panel. 1438
Campin, Robert

Saint Barbara reads by the light of a fireplace in a richly appointed room. The key to her identity lies outside the window that opens onto a landscape with a tower, her customary attribute. That is where her father, Dioscoro, imprisoned her to avoid her conversion to Christianity. Campin´s painting is one of the finest examples of primitive Flemish artists´ skill at representing indoor scenes and

This is a family portrait of María Luisa Josefa de Borbón (1782-1824) and her children, Carlos Luis and María Luisa Carlota de Borbón-Parma, painted during the time that María Luisa was regent of Etruria following the death of her husband, Louis I. The inclusion in this portrait of symbols such as the throne, canopy, red footstool, crown and column all identify t

This work shows politician, poet, playwright and tutor to Queen Elizabeth II, Manuel José Quntana (Madrid, April 11, 1772- Madrid, March 11, 1857) on the day of his coronation in the Senate as Illustrious Poet (March 25, 1855).

The Virgin nursing the Child
Oil on panel. Ca. 1530
Reymerswale, Marinus Van

Marinus has depicted the Virgin nursing the Child in a domestic interior. Both figures are shown without halos, turning the representation into an image of the tender relationship between a mother and her child in the viewer’s own time and place. This iconography already appeared in the early fifteenth century and was used especially for images intended for private devotion. During the later Middl
