The Animals entering Noah’s Ark
Oil on canvas. Ca. 1570
Bassano, Jacopo (Jacopo Dal Ponte)

This painting is Jacopo´s first depiction of the passage from Genesis 6:20 and the only one in which the theme is treated separately rather than as part of a series depicting the story of Noah. Jacopo respected the biblical tale in terms of the number of people who were saved -Noah, his wife, and his three sons Shem, Ham and Japheth, with their wives- but took liberties with the animals. In some c

Christ Justifying his Passion
Oil on panel. Ca. 1565
Morales, Luis de

This work is an example of an exceptional iconography within the subject matter habitually dedicated to the Passion by the painter, and even within that of the European art of his time as a whole. Although his most frequent subjects were the traditional ones of the Ecce Homo (alone or accompanied by executioners, by Pontius Pilate and an executioner, or by the Virgin and St John), Christ at the Co

A. E. Pérez Sánchez publicó en 1970 su fotografía y su identificación en los inventarios antiguos de El Escorial (Madrid 1970a). En la actualidad, el formato de la obra aparece alterado en todos sus lados, principalmente por mutilaciones en la parte baja y el lado izquierdo; hasta su reciente restauración presentaba un aspecto muy desvirtuado. Hasta ese momento no se había apreciado la costura en

Leocadia Zorrilla (?)
Oil on canvas. 1814 - 1816
Goya y Lucientes, Francisco de

Ever since this painting entered the museum, the sitter has traditionally been identified as Josefa Bayeu, Goya´s wife. However, the date of the painting doesn´t coincide with the age of the supposed model, as Josefa Bayeu died in 1812 at the age of sixty-five. Thus she would have been fifty years old by 1798, which is the date most historians attribute to this work. The present portrait, however,

The Family of Carlos IV
Oil on canvas. 1800
Goya y Lucientes, Francisco de

This portrait of the family of King Carlos IV (1748-1819) was painted in Aranjuez and Madrid in the spring and summer of 1800, shortly after Goya was named First Chamber Painter. It clearly show´s the artist´s mastery at individualizing characters. The forerunners to this complex composition are Louis-Michel van Loo´s Portrait of Felipe V and his Family (P02283) and Velázquez´s Las Meninas

Contemporary Poets. A Reading by Zorilla in the Painter's Studio
Oil on canvas. 1846
Esquivel, Antonio María

The most famous of Esquivel´s pieces and a leading work of Spanish Romanticism. Considered the maximum graphical testimony to the intellectual atmosphere during the reign of Isabel II (1830 - 1904), this canvas depicts a fictitious meeting of Esquivel´s most relevant cultural contemporaries. The composition combines the complexities of a group portrait with the scheme of Flemish Baroque cabinet po

Bullfight
Oil on canvas. After 1825
Anonymous

This canvas is inspired by Goya’s Tauromaquia of 1815 and his Bulls of Bordeaux lithographs of late 1825. The technique suggests a late date, around the end of the 1820s, and is close to Goya’s style. The canvas is one of a now dispersed series on bulls and bullfighting, of which there are two in the Ashmolean Museum, Oxford, and another in a private Madrid collection.

Considerado como obra de Antonio Carnicero (1748-1814), Arturo Ansón Navarro (2012) lo atribuyó a Ramón Bayeu por motivos estilísticos y por su relación documental con una serie de retratos de la familia real pintados por Bayeu hacia 1791. Según estos documentos, Ramón Bayeu, nombrado pintor de cámara el 20 de abril de 1791, pintó en ese año y en el Real Sitio de Aranjuez los retratos de varios hi

A Slave for Sale
Oil on canvas. Ca. 1897
Jiménez Aranda, José

A young, completely nude slave sits on a carpet. The sign hanging from her neck bears a Greek inscription (Rose, 18 years old, on sale for 800 coins) that offers her as merchandise at an Oriental market. She chastely hangs her head to hide her shame. The feet of her possible purchasers are visible behind her as they crown around to contemplate her defenseless nudity. This is one of Jiménez
