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.

The Apparition of Saint Peter to Saint Peter Nolasco
Oil on canvas. 1629
Zurbarán, Francisco de

Saint Peter Nolasco, founded the order of Our Lady of Mercy, also known as the Mercederians, whose main objective was to rescue Christians held captive by the Muslims. The convent of la Merced Calzada for which this work was painted had been founded by Ferdinand III in 1249 -the year Pedro Nolasco died- but it was entirely reconstructed in the early 17th century. In August 1628, Zurbarán wa

Portrait of a Lady
Oil on canvas. Ca. 1810
González Velázquez, Zacarías

Inmerso ya en el academicismo neoclásico, el artista retrató a esta dama desconocida, cuya edad ronda la treintena, con su habilidad acostumbrada. Se trata de un busto de mujer joven que dirige su mirada al espectador con expresión serena, rostro agradable de facciones nobles, piel tersa y suave colorido. Luce un sencillo vestido blanco de estilo imperio escotado en redondo y, entrelazada sobre el

Anne Sawbridge
Oil on canvas. 1767 - 1770
Cotes, Francis

This exquisitely refined female portrait is imbued with the profound sense of poetry characteristic of the artist’s late works. Dressed in a classical style gown, she is set against a background of clouds and evening light, creating a nostalgic, pre-Romantic mood. Daughter of Sir William Stephenson, in 1766 the sitter married John Sawbridge of Olantigh, a Kentish landowner and Lord Mayor of London

The Crucified Christ
Oil on canvas. Ca. 1632
Velázquez, Diego Rodríguez de Silva y

Stylistically, this work appears to have been made in the early 1630s -soon after the artist returned from Italy- and most authors date it from around 1632. The Apollonian perfection of the anatomy and the figure`s pale complexion recall the neo-Attic character of Guido Reni`s work, but it must have been Velázquez`s intention to imbue the figure with a divine and ineffable beauty, reflectin

Portrait of a Man
Oil on canvas. Ca. 1800
Opie, John

Opie depicts his elegant sitter dressed in the fashion of the day and holding a rolled up paper that may be a plan in his right hand. Located in the immediate foreground, the figure stands out strongly against the dark ground, conveying a marked sensation of reality.

The Poet Manuel José Quintana
Oil on canvas. 1806
Ribelles y Helip, José

This simple, intimate portrait based on a range of grey tones is one of the few known examples of portraiture in the artist´s work. Ribelles may have known the celebrated poet Quintana in his youth through the theatrical and literary circles that both frequented in Madrid. Quintana (1772-1857) was an admirer of Goya and included a poem in his praise in his anthology of 1805.

These two miniatures belong to a series of seven on copper, unique in Goya’s oeuvre. They depict the artist’s son Javier and Javier’s in-laws on the occasion of his marriage to Gumersinda, daughter of the haberdashers Miguel Martín de Goicoechea and Juana Galarza. Juana is depicted here, together with Manuela, another of their daughters, in profile.

Joseph’s Dream
Oil on canvas. 1805
López Portaña, Vicente

The sleeping Joseph, his elbow propped on the table and the Infant Christ on his lap, receives the angel’s warning to flee and thus avoid the massacre of children ordered by King Herod (Matthew 2, 13). This is one of López’s most important religious compositions from his early career as a mature artist in Valencia.

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

Prometheus
Oil on canvas. 1636 - 1638
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

Autumn
Oil on canvas. 1805 - 1806
Maella, Mariano Salvador

Bacchus, the god of wine, is the figure traditionally associated with Autumn. Accompanied here by a satyr with a wineskin, he leans on a barrel and raises a goblet of wine in a pose inspired by the classical marble statue of the Resting Satyr -then in La Granja palace and now in the Prado- after an original by Praxiteles. In the background several companions carry a drunken Silenus.

Episode after Trafalgar
Oil on canvas. 1862
Sans Cabot, Francisco

Following the Battle of Trafalgar in 1805, a storm swept the Spanish vessel Neptuno onto the rocks of the Castle of Santa Catalina in Puerto de Santa María, where the surviving crew members took shelter. This canvas, with its unusual subject for a history painting, can be associated with the early years of French Eclecticism, of which Sans Cabot acquired first-hand knowledge in Paris throug

Execution of Torrijos and his Companions on the Beach at Málaga
Oil on canvas. 1888
Gisbert Pérez, Antonio

The finest work of all Gisbert’s production, this impressive painting is also unarguably one of the most beautiful of all 19th-century Spanish history paintings. Moreover, it is one of the greatest political manifestos of all Spanish painting in defense of human freedom crushed by authoritarianism and one of the very few cases in which a clear propagandistic message was directly inspired by govern

Spring

Spring
Oil on canvas. 1805 - 1806
Maella, Mariano Salvador

The series devoted to the Four Seasons was possibly commissioned from Maella by Charles IV to decorate the Platinum Room in the Casa del Labrador in Aranjuez, although in the end the Four Seasons executed by the French painter Anne-Louis Girodet were hung there. Maella chose the figure of the goddess Flora, accompanied by a cherub, for his allegory of Spring.
