The man in the portrait, wearing his palace uniform, holds in his left hand a bundle of “royal orders”.

This portrait of José Rebolledo de Palafox y Melci (1775-1847), Field Marshal of Zaragoza, commemorates his defense of the city in 1808 when it was besieged by the French during the War of Independence. Palafox became a symbol of patriotic resistence to the invader when he refused to capitulate despite the terrible state in which his city and its defenders found themselves. Goya seems to ha

A young French Officer, displaying the insignia of the Légion d’Honneur, rests beside his horse. In this portrait, which may have been painted in Rome during the Napoleonic occupation, the officer’s attitude and elegant naturalness reveal the influence of French models, skilfully combined with Madrazo’s own refined technique.

Raphael (Raffaello Sanzio)

Philip IV called this painting The Pearl, as it was his favorite among all those in his collection. The composition was designed by Raphael but part of the execution was delegated to his pupil Giulio Romano (c. 1499-1546). As in other late works by Raphael, we find considerable emphasis on the landscape and contrasts of light, the result of the artist´s re-encounter with the work of Leonardo in Ro

Shortly after El Greco completed the high altar for the church of the Colegio de Doña María de Aragón (Madrid), Juan Pantoja de la Cruz executed these two canvases, which were to flank El Greco’s work. While primarily known as a portraitist, Pantoja also produced notable religious compositions such as the present monumental figures, which are imbued with a dynamism and express

The Virgin sits with the Christ Child in the midst of grandiose classical architecture. She is surrounded by numerous saints in various positions. Above her, some angels prepare to crown her as Queen of Heaven. This work was sometimes thought to be a representation of The Mystical Betrothal of Saint Catherine, because of the strong presence of that saint, who is depicted kneeling before the Christ

The Immaculate Conception of Los Venerables
Oil on canvas. 1660 - 1665
Murillo, Bartolomé Esteban

Murillo created a highly successful formula for representing the Immaculate Conception, with the Virgin dressed in blue and white, her hands crossed over her bosom and her gaze directed at the heavens as she stands on the moon. He presents her with a clearly upward impulse that situates her in a celestial space filled with light, clouds and angels. That was the artist’s manner of combining two dif

Drawn from the Apocalypse of Saint john, The Immaculate Conception is a frequent iconic subject in Spanish painting. In Madrid, especially during the second half of the 17th century, it was so frequently depicted that a specific and characteristic approach was developed. Years before he painted the present work, Alonso del Arco made a canvas on the same subject for the Jesuit Church of Alcal&aacut
