The Arch of Titus in Rome
Oil on canvas. 1657
Martínez del Mazo, Juan Bautista

Una figura con la poderosísima personalidad artística de Velázquez no podía por menos que dejar una profunda huella entre los demás pintores de la corte española. Esta influencia se notó especialmente en el retrato, pero también se advierte en otros géneros. Uno de ellos es el paisaje, y como ejemplo tenemos esta obra, que durante mucho tiempo estuvo atribuida al propio pintor sevillano. Se trata

Charles II, King of Spain, on Horseback
Oil on canvas. Ca. 1693
Giordano, Luca

Luca Giordano (1634-1705) made an equestrian portrait of Charles II for the Hall of Mirrors at Madrid’s Alcázar palace to emphasize the dynastic continuum in which Charles II constituted the latest link in a chain that had begun with Titian’s portrait of Charles V: Charles V at Mühlberg. The loss of Titian’s work in the fire that ravaged the Alcázar in 1734 makes it impossible t

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.

Federico Gonzaga, Ist Duke of Mantua
Oil on panel. 1529
Titian (Tiziano Vecellio)

On 16 April 1529 Federico II Gonzaga, First Duke of Mantua (1500-1540), apologised to his uncle Alfonso d’Este for retaining Titian: perché ha conienzo un retratto mio qual molto desidero sii finito (because he has started a portrait of me which I greatly desire to be finished). In 1530 a second portrait of Federico in armour is also recorded. Typologically and conceptually, the present por

A Picador
Oil on unlined canvas. Ca. 1795
Goya y Lucientes, Francisco de

An equestrian portrait of a picador, wearing a short bullfighting suit and hat and carrying a long pike. The background is a landscape with a river. X-rays of this work show that this picador is painted over an equestrian portrait of Manuel Godoy, who wears the sash of the Order of Carlos III, which he received in 1791, and the three-cornered hat of Commander of the Lifeguards, a title he received

Susannah and the Elders

Susannah and the Elders
Oil on canvas. Ca. 1580
Veronese, Paolo (Paolo Cagliari)

Venetian sixteenth-century painters frequently made use of this story as it allowed them to depict their client´s preferred subject-the female nude- using the vehicle of a biblical episode. The confrontation between Susannah and the Elders is the most psychologically interesting moment in the narrative (Daniel 13, 15-27). Susannah´s pale, nude flesh conveys a strong sensation of fragility, emphasi

Saint Peter weeping
Oil on canvas. Ca. 1700
Giordano, Luca

Pintura de devoción privada en la que Giordano presenta a San Pedro arrepentido derramando lágrimas de aflicción, después de haber negado a Cristo por tres veces. Con la mirada elevada al cielo, las manos entrelazadas sobre el pecho en gesto de piadosa oración y actitud de profundo recogimiento, el Apóstol implora perdón por su pecado. Sobre la piedra del primer término, en la que han quedado marc

The Actress María Guerrero as La dama boba
Oil on canvas. 1906
Sorolla y Bastida, Joaquín

This portrait of María Guerrero, Sorolla’s neighbour and friend, is probably the finest and most expressive example of the eminent actress’s lifelong obsession with her own image. From childhood, she had herself portrayed by some of the most famous painters of her time, many of whom were friends of her father, the set designer Ramón Guerrero. María Guerrero grew up in a cultur

Saint Margaret
Oil on canvas. Ca. 1565
Titian (Tiziano Vecellio)

Philip II owned two pictures of this saint painted by Titian. The first can be identified with the portrait of Saint Margaret mentioned by the painter in a letter sent to the then Prince Philip on II October 1552. This painting came to the Escorial in 1574 and remains there. The version in the Museo del Prado is later and of better quality. It probably belonged to Mary of Hungary. While it is not

Young Man between Vice and Virtue
Oil on canvas. Ca. 1581
Veronese, Paolo (Paolo Cagliari)

The moralizing intention of this work shows the two paths that will tempt men over the course of their lives: Virtue and Vice. Virtue, wearing the crown of laurels that has been her symbol since Antiquity, and hiding her anatomy under ample vestments, takes the youth by the hand. Vice, in the form of a blond Venetian courtesan with a generous décolleté and numerous jewels, reaches ou

Empress Isabella of Portugal
Oil on canvas. 1548
Titian (Tiziano Vecellio)

The portraits that Titian painted of Isabella (1503-1539), daughter of King Manuel of Portugal and wife of Charles V from 1526, constitute one of the most moving episodes within Renaissance art. When the empress died, Charles found that he did not have her portrait, so he tried to recover the one that his deceased wife had sent years earlier to Margaret of Austria. In November 1539 he received thi

Oil on canvas. 1629
Zurbarán, Francisco de

Founder of the order of la Merced Calzada, the saint is depicted kneeling, leaning on a church pew. In his dream, an angel appears to him and shows him heavenly Jerusalem, conceived as a walled city with gates and drawbridges over which numerous people enter and exit. This work is a companion to Saint Peter appearing to Saint Peter Nolasco (P01237) and both were part of a series painted by Zurbar&

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.

Penitent Magdalen
Oil on canvas. Ca. 1665
Giordano, Luca

La Magdalena penitente de Giordano ilustra sobre las dudas que sus imitaciones suscitaron en épocas diversas. A pesar de que ingresó en la Colección Real en el siglo XVIII con la atribución correcta, muy pronto fue citada como obra de Ribera, Murillo y otros, hasta que a mediados de 1950 fuera restituida al artista napolitano. Giordano imita el ambiente cerrado, oscuro y desértico del maestro vale

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

Saint Joseph’s Dream
Oil on panel. Ca. 1697
Giordano, Luca

La fe de san José fue probada con el embarazo de María. Como era hombre justo y no quería ponerla en evidencia, resolvió repudiarla en secreto. Así lo había planeado cuando un ángel se le apareció en sueños y le reveló que lo engendrado en ella era obra del Espíritu Santo, renunciando a llevar adelante su primera intención (Mateo 1: 19-24).En la pintura, san José ocupa el primer plano, recostado y
