Washerwomen of La Varenne, France
Oil on canvas. Ca. 1865
Rico y Ortega, Martín

Martín Rico was one of the leading Spanish landscape painters of the second half of the nineteenth-century. He was particularly interested in depicting tranquil stretches of water, and during his long stay in France he often painted the countryside around the rivers Seine and Marne near Paris. Here, using a very limited range of colours, he arranges the composition in parallel horizontal st

Saint Benedict
Oil on canvas. 1577 - 1579
el Greco (Domenikos Theotokopoulos)

This image of Saint Benedict of Nursia (c.480-547) was painted for the high altar in the Church of Santo Domingo el Antiguo, one of the oldest convents in Toledo founded by the Benedictine order in the seventh century. In the sixteenth century, a new church was built with funding from a wealthy patron, Doña María de Silva, who died in 1575. Diego de Castilla, the deacon of the Cathed

The Fall of Lucifer
Oil on canvas. 1840
Esquivel, Antonio María

Lucifer was one of God´s favorite angels. He was expulsed from Heaven when he rebelled against His power. To represent the subject, Esquivel chose the moment when, with a stern expression, Saint Michael separates him from Celestial Glory. The subject is comparable to Saint Michael´s fight with the dragon of sin, which was frequently depicted by innumerable artists. Nevertheless, Esquivel eschews t

The Milkmaid of Bordeaux

The Milkmaid of Bordeaux
Oil on canvas. Ca. 1827
Goya y Lucientes, Francisco de

An image of a young milkmaid with an apron, a shawl on her shoulders and a scarf holding back her hair. There is a milk jug behind her, to the left. The bottom-to-top perspective seems intended to give the sensation that she is riding a mule. The light colors and straightforward subject matter contrast with Goya´s last works, both in Madrid and in Bordeaux, when darker color schemes brought out mo

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

The Drunkard
Oil on cardboard. Ca. 1835
Alenza, Leonardo

Célebre por sus escenas de género inspiradas en las obras de Teniers y de Wouwerman que pudo ver en el Museo del Prado, Alenza está considerado como el gran narrador de las costumbres de las clases más pobres y marginadas de la sociedad de Madrid, que retrata con un sentido crítico cercano a Goya. A pesar de su reducido tamaño, esta obra ejemplifica magníficamente ese tipo de pintura dentro de la

View of the south Façade of the Museo del Prado from inside the Botanical Gardens
Oil on canvas. Ca. 1835
Avrial y Flores, José María

Avrial trained with Fernando Brambilla in the Italian tradition of the classicising veduta. His urban views include clear, accurate descriptions of buildings and monuments rendered with a precise and meticulous line. In contrast, the picturesque figures and pronounced contrasts of light and shade bring his work close to Romanticism.

Bayeu y Subías, Ramón

Representa a Fernando VII niño de unos ocho o nueve años, en traje azul con faja roja y condecorado con el Toisón de Oro y las insignias de la Orden de Carlos III, en concreto la gran cruz y la banda nueva con sus tres fajas iguales establecida en junio de 1792. Atribuido a Antonio Carnicero (1748-1814) en el inventario del Palacio Real de 1814 y a Joaquín Inza (1736-1811) a su ingreso en el Museo

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

Juan Bautista de Muguiro
Oil on unlined canvas. 1827
Goya y Lucientes, Francisco de

Holding a letter in his hand, Juan Bautista de Muguiro sits beside his desk, on which an inkwell is visible. This representation exalts his stature as a banker taking care of his business. An inscription mentions that the painting was made by Goya in May, 1827, in Bordeaux, when he was eighty-one. As the painter died in April 1828, this may well be his last known work. There are some differences w

Anna Escher von Muralt
Oil on canvas. Ca. 1800
Kauffmann, Angelica

A successful interpreter of the Neo-classical style, Angelica Kauffmann here offers an elegant image of the sitter, Anna Escher von Muralt (1767 -1830), who belonged to a prominent Swiss family. The subject is depicted sitting in a wooded spot, wearing a fashionable gown of classical inspiration. A circular temple in the background completes this idealised evocation of the ancient world.

The Naked Maja
Oil on canvas. 1795 - 1800
Goya y Lucientes, Francisco de

An image of Venus in the nude, lying on a green velvet divan with pillows and a spread. Legend would have it that this was the Duchess of Alba, but the sitter has also been identified as Pepita Tudó, who became Godoy´s mistress in 1797. It is listed for the first time in 1800 as hanging over a door in Manuel Godoy´s palace, but without its companion, The Clothed Maja (P00741). In 1808 it is

The Infante Carlos María of Bourbon with Drum and Tambourine
Oil on canvas. 1791 - 1792
Bayeu y Subías, Ramón

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

The Actor Isidoro Máiquez
Oil on canvas. 1807
Goya y Lucientes, Francisco de

The son of actors, Isidoro Máiquez was born in Cartagena in 1768. Supported by the Duke and Duchess of Osuna, he studied in Paris with the celebrated thespian Francisco José Talma (1763-1826), introducing his teacher’s innovations onto the Spanish stage. He enjoyed immediate success with Shakespeare’s Othello in 1802 and became the director of the Teatro del Príncipe. The tech

Acquired by Queen Maria Christina of Bourbon for the Royal Collections, the work was sent to the Gallery of Living Artists at the Prado.

Catalogado a su ingreso en el Museo en 1847 como “retrato de la Sa infanta Da Carlota Reyna de Portugal” de Joaquín Inza (1736-1811), forma parte de un grupo de retratos de infantes y del príncipe Fernando que Arturo Ansón Navarro (2012) identificó la modelo como la infanta María Amalia (1779-1798) de doce años y atribuyó el retrato a Ramón Bayeu por motivos estilísticos y por su relación document

Considerado como obra de Antonio Carnicero (1748-1814), Arturo Ansón Navarro (2012) atribuyó el retrato 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, aunque lo fechó hacia finales de septiembre de 1789 y lo identificó con el infante Carlos María Isidro. Sin embargo, representa más bien a una infanta,
