The Riva degli Schiavoni in Venice
Oil on canvas. 1873
Rico y Ortega, Martín

Venice was the predominant subject of most of Rico’s paintings, since he spent the summer months there for over thirty years. He was particularly interested in the bustling commercial life of the docks. Despite its apparent realism, this is an adapted view of Venice; Rico has removed the imposing prison building, which prompted the legend of the famous Bridge of Sighs. Legado de

A Guadarrama Landscape
Oil on canvas. 1858
Rico y Ortega, Martín

Rico painted the Guadarrama Mountains years before the railway made it accessible to artists. That is clear in some watercolours and this oil painted at the León Pass, which he sent to the National Exhibition of 1858. The decreasing succession of trees and mountains is a device typical of Romantic painting, but Rico’s interest in depicting the types of moss and grass reflect a clearly reali

In the mid-nineteenth century Federico de Madrazo produced some of the most successful portraits of the Spanish bourgeoisie during the reign of Isabel II (1833-68), presenting them with the opulence that their social status demanded. In addition to his remarkable artistic ability, his female portraits are outstanding for their depiction of the accessories and adornments. These details are emphasis

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

Here, he offers an image of the Guadalquivir River where it flows through Seville, with the Torre de Oro (Golden Tower) as the protagonist. The comings and goings of the boats on the water or berthe

Pérez Villaamil y Duguet, Genaro

Genaro Pérez Villaamil (El Ferrol, 1807-Madrid, 1854) can be considered the most significant and influential Spanish Romantic landscape painter and an artist who had an intense interest, characteristic of that period, in depictions of cities and their monuments.The small size of the tin plates on which theses scenes are painted allowed Villaamil to work from the motif, as he generally did w

Oil on canvas. 1838
Roberts, David

The Scottish artist David Roberts travelled around Spain between 1832 and 1833, en route to Africa. Fascinated by its Islamic and Christian monuments, his works present an exotic and literary vision of Spain. This canvas, executed after his return to London, depicts a colourful and idealised view of the Villaviciosa Chapel, beneath the pierced vault constructed under Al-Hakam II.

A serene landscape with the Bidasoa River´s mouth at the Cantabrian Sea, as seen from the sands of Fuenterrabía.

Carlos Luis de Ribera y Fievé, eldest son of the neoclassical painter, Juan Antonio de Ribera, was also a painter and a friend of Federico de Madrazo, who made this portrait while both lived in Paris. It is the result of an agreement that each would paint the image of the other, and then send the works to the annual painting exhibition at the Academy of Fine Arts of San Fernando in Madrid.

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.

The Trinity
Oil on canvas. Ca. 1635
Ribera, Jusepe de, lo Spagnoletto

The Trinity shows Ribera´s confidence in his pictorial possibilities. The tragedy of the scene is emphasized by the use of light and a sumptuous palette. The bluish cadaver of Christ, marked by blood that runs down his side, staining his loincloth and shroud, contrasts with the hieratic appearance of God the Father, who shows us his dead Son, accompanied by the dove of the Holy Ghost. This w
