The Supper at Emmaus
Oil on canvas. Ca. 1638
Rubens, Peter Paul

Two pilgrims on their way to Jerusalem meet a traveler, whom the invite to dinner. When their unknown guest blesses the bread on the table, they recognize that he is Christ resurrected. This story is taken from the Gospel of Luke (24, 13-55). The painter sets the scene in a space that is open to an architectural landscape, with a fortress and a Baroque building out of which a figure is leaning. Th

The Burial of Christ
Oil on canvas. 1572
Titian (Tiziano Vecellio)

Titian represented the Gospel account of the burial of Christ (Matthew 27: 57-61; Mark 15: 44-47; Luke 23: 50-54; John 19: 38-42) on several occasions. There is a notable difference between his first version (Paris, Louvre) of around 1526 which is clearly indebted to Raphael´s painting of that subject (Rome, Galleria Borghese), and his other versions painted between 1559 and 1572. The main differe

Giordano, Luca

The first known reference to this painting from the Spanish Royal Collection dates from 1700, when it was mentioned as being in the Alcázar, Madrid, along with another painting by Luca Giordano, Mater Dolorosa, now lost. It is in magnificent condition, and was restored in 2007.The powerful foreground shows Christ, rope around his neck, painfully carrying the cross. The general tone evokes t

The Virgin of Louvain
Oil on panel. Ca. 1520
Orley, Bernard Van

According to the Latin inscription on the back of this panel, which attributes it to Jan Gossaert, it was acquired by the magistrate of Louvain in 1588 from that city’s Augustinian monks. It was intended as a gift of thanks to Philip II for having waived the taxes and tariffs owed by the inhabitants of Louvain for twelve years after that city was decimated by the plague in 1578. Seeking to give th

Diptych with 42 Monumental Views of Spanish Cities
Oil on paper, panel, tin plate. 1835 - 1839
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

Saint Cecilia
Oil on canvas. 1569
Coxcie, Michiel

Saint Cecile has been associated with music since the fifteenth century. Here she appears playing the clavichord, an instrument with which she is customarily portrayed in renaissance works. Three singing angels accompany the saint. In this work, Coxcie reflects his knowledge of the work of Raphael and his followers, which was the result of his trip to Rome between 1530 and 1539. This influence can

Saint Jerome
Oil on panel transferred to canvas. Ca. 1566
Campi, Antonio

Born in Cremona, Campi’s style combined Mannerist elements, such as the contorted bodies of the figures, and naturalistic ones, such as the detailed depiction of objects. In the late 1560s his painting became increasingly religious in tone and more emotionally expressive, aspects that he conveyed through pronounced contrasts of light and shade. This work was painted for the church of Saint’Eustorg

The Mystic Marriage of Saint Catherine
Oil on cork. 1578
Sánchez Coello, Alonso

This is a rare and particularly fine example of one of Coello’s religious compositions, painted on cork for the Monastery of El Escorial. Accompanied by his mother Mary, the Christ Child appears to Saint Catherine of Alexandria, showing his gratitude for her love of him, which was ritualised through the concept of spiritual marriage. The painting is clearly influence by Italian art, with reference

Peter Paul Rubens, the Flemish Baroque artist, was also a humanist scholar, art collector, and diplomat. In 1628, Rubens went to Madrid to meet with Philip IV, King of Spain (1621-1665), as part of his efforts to negotiate a peace treaty between Spain and England, and during his stay the Flemish artist painted, among other subjects, portraits of the Spanish royal family. A patron of the arts, Phil

Philip II offering the Infante Fernando to Victory
Oil on canvas. 1573 - 1575
Titian (Tiziano Vecellio)

This painting commemorates events that took place in 1571: the defeat of the Turkish armada at Lepanto on October 7, and the birth of the infante Fernando, heir to the throne, on December 5th. The proximity of these two events led them to be viewed repeatedly as gifts from Heaven in circles close to the monarch. Thus, a letter from Luis de Requesens, Governer of Milan to Sancho de Padilla, dated D

The Virgin, with an idealized face, stands under a semi-circular arch, holding her Child in her arms. In the background are five angels: a harpist and a singer on the left, and on the right, three more, reading a large music book. The painter from Brussels modeled this work after the so-called Madonna of the Apse by Robert Campin. The scene is framed by renaissance architecture that reveals van Or

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

Triptych of the Life of the Virgin
Oil on panel. Ca. 1445
Bouts, Dirk

This triptych presents four scenes: the Annunciation, the Visitation, the Adoration of the Angels and the Adoration of the Magi. Painted around 1445, it is considered the earliest surviving work by Dirk Bouts. Stylistically, it resembles his later paintings except for the canon of its figures, which are much shorter here than in posterior works. Besides the interest Bouts shows in landscape from t

Landscape with Saint Jerome
Oil on panel. 1516 - 1517
Patinir, Joachim

Patinir shows St Jerome sitting inside the wooden shack that leans against the rocks in the foreground. As with the Landscape with the Martyrdom of St Catherine in Vienna (Kunsthistorisches Museum), the painter here raises the line of the horizon, leading to an increase in the space devoted to the landscape and the consequent reduction of the sky (although this has been cut down still further, it
