The Adoration of the Magi
Oil on canvas. 1612 - 1614
Maíno, Fray Juan Bautista

On 14 February 1612 Juan Bautista Maíno signed the contract to execute the paintings for the monastery church of San Pedro Mártir in Toledo. Maíno agreed to a period of eight months to make the paintings, which had to portray the scenes and episodes specified by the prior of the monastery.

The painter Antonio Gomar y Gomar
Oil on canvas. 1906
Sorolla y Bastida, Joaquín

The Valencian painter Antonio Gomar (1853-1911), who specialised in landscapes and decorative compositions, is portrayed by his compatriot Sorolla at the age of 53. The work’s landscape format, influenced by photography, and which Sorolla reserved for portraits of family and friends, is indicative of how close he was to his model. Painted in the foreground, his body foreshortened to the left, and

The Martyrdom of Saint James
Oil on canvas. Ca. 1640
Zurbarán, Francisco de

The apostle Saint James is shown kneeling with his hands together in prayer, offering his neck up to the sword of the executioner whoprepares to decapitate him. Standing before the apostle, wearing a curious sort of headdress, is the authority who decreed his death. Behind Saint James are soldiers with halberds and various other figures who probably represent Herod Agrippa and the Jews who, accord

Oil on canvas. Ca. 1858
Rigalt y Farriols, Luis

Luis Rigalt is considered to be the founder of the renowned Catalonian school of landscape painting due to his activities as Professor of Landscape at the School of Fine Arts in Barcelona. The precise line and careful handling of the light are characteristic of his views, in which he depicted some of the most outstanding landscapes of Catalonia.

Sabina Seupham Spalding
Oil on canvas. 1846
Madrazo y Kuntz, Federico de

This portrait of the wife of the banker Henry O’Shea reveals the British influence on Madrazo’s fully romantic period. Her social position is indicated by the quality of the fabrics, laces and jewels, and by the elegant arrangement of the hands. The books allude to the culture of this lady, who was a friend to the writer Washington Irving.

The Chronological Series of the Kings of Spain was a museum project planned in 1847 by José de Madrazo to adorn four of the new rooms at the Real Museo de Pinturas (Royal Museum of Paintings), then under his direction. At the height of the confrontation between the supporters of Isabella II and the Carlists, who denied the sovereign’s right to occupy the throne because she was a woman, the

Jaime Girona, later 1st Count of Eleta
Oil on canvas. 1856
Madrazo y Kuntz, Federico de

This portrait of Jaime Girona, a politician and financier from Barcelona, is of a typology that the artist repeated frequently in portraits of the bourgeoisie in the 1850s, and it is perhaps his work of highest quality. The naturalness of the sitter is remarkable, as is the careful modelling and the delicate precision in the representation of his hands.

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

Oil on canvas. 1856
Cano de la Peña, Eduardo

This is the sketch for the first history painting to be awarded the top prize at the first National Fine Arts Exhibition in 1856, a work (P5726). This piece not only reveals compositional changes during the creative process but also shows that the artist initially envisaged a work of Spanish Baroque austerity, although eventually he inclined towards French models.
