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

The Pearl and the Wave
Oil on canvas. 1862
Baudry, Paul

An intensely sensual female nude that presents the figure in the form of a pearl enclosed in its box, the ocean, which may be an allusion to the birth of Venus. Presented at the Paris Salon of 1863, this work was one of the most appreciated female nudes of Second Empire Paris, despite the strong criticism it received as an exultantly erotic work lacking any moral modesty. Its first owner was the E

Diana in a Landscape
Oil on canvas. 1739
Loo, Louis-Michel Van

Diana, the Roman goddess of the hunt, sleeps outdoors, leaning on a boulder and wrapped in a leopard skin. She wears her symbol, the crescent moon, on her head and her clothes are of classical inspiration. She is accompanied by her bow and arrows and a hunting horn. Van Loo painted numerous mythological scenes, generally characterized by a certain degree of eroticism. This was in keeping with the

The Actress María Guerrero as Doña Inés
Oil on canvas. 1891
Madrazo y Garreta, Raimundo de

This portrait is one of the most beautiful examples of the great actress María Guerrero’s (1867-1928) lifelong obsession with her own image. She began having her portrait painted by the most famous painters of her time while still an infant. This fixation was favored by her father’s friendship with many of those artists, and as a result, the Museo del Prado has several splendid likeness of

The Painter Benito Soriano Murillo
Oil on canvas. 1863 - 1867
Madrazo y Garreta, Raimundo de

Benito Soriano Murillo (1827-1891) was an artist and deputy director of the Museo del Prado. He shared Raimundo de Madrazo and his family’s love of music, referred to by the guitar and piano. The elegant pose, characteristic of the French tradition that Madrazo assimilated in Paris, coexists here with the influence of Spanish portraiture and the style of the artist’s father, Federico de Madrazo.

Attack on a Jewish Quarter

Lameyer y Berenguer, Francisco
Attack on a Jewish Quarter
Oil on canvas. Ca. 1865
Lameyer y Berenguer, Francisco

This picture clearly displays the influence of Goya as well as the artist’s familiarity with the French Romantic painters, particularly Delacroix. Lameyer was among the first Spanish artists to explore Oriental themes, then fashionable in Europe. Paintings in this genre often depicted North Africa - which Lameyer had visited in 1862 - as a setting for violent action.

Episode after Trafalgar
Oil on canvas. 1862
Sans Cabot, Francisco

Following the Battle of Trafalgar in 1805, a storm swept the Spanish vessel Neptuno onto the rocks of the Castle of Santa Catalina in Puerto de Santa María, where the surviving crew members took shelter. This canvas, with its unusual subject for a history painting, can be associated with the early years of French Eclecticism, of which Sans Cabot acquired first-hand knowledge in Paris throug

Travel of the Blessed Virgin and St. John to Ephesus after the death of Savior

Travel of the Blessed Virgin and St. John to Ephesus after the death of Savior
Oil on canvas. 1862
Hernández Amores, Germán

The Virgin and Saint John are depicted on a sailboat, crossing tranquil seas on their way to Ephesis. The somber and distracted expressions on both their faces indicate they are lost in thought. The helmsman dozes in the stern, so the boat is guided by angels. This subject is inspired in religious literature concerning the mother off Christ, which tried to cover the episodes following the Savior´s

The Painter Eduardo Zamacois

Madrazo y Garreta, Raimundo de
The Painter Eduardo Zamacois
Oil on canvas. 1863 - 1864
Madrazo y Garreta, Raimundo de

As the dedication indicates, this portrait reflects the close friendship between the artist and Eduardo Zamacois (1841-1871), his friend and fellow artist in Paris. Despite the portrait’s restrained, intimate nature, defined by its format and dark tonalities, the sitter is elegantly presented and enlivened by the red of his beret.

The Coronation of the Quintana

López Piquer, Luis
The Coronation of the Quintana
Oil on canvas. 1859
López Piquer, Luis

This work shows politician, poet, playwright and tutor to Queen Elizabeth II, Manuel José Quntana (Madrid, April 11, 1772- Madrid, March 11, 1857) on the day of his coronation in the Senate as Illustrious Poet (March 25, 1855).

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.

Esquivel, Antonio María
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

Ceferino Araujo
Oil on canvas. 1864
Bonnat, Léon-Joseph

El retrato representa a un hombre de unos treinta años, de rasgos pronunciados y barba. La atención se concentra en el rostro, que no parece juntarse al cuerpo, vagamente bosquejado debajo. La posición centrada y frontal de la cara en el primer plano produce una impresión de proximidad y confianza, y la pincelada libre y desigual en el vacío del fondo concede al retrato una sensación movida, al ig

Vicente Palmaroli
Oil on canvas. 1866 - 1867
Madrazo y Kuntz, Luis de

Retrato de busto, el rostro ofrece amplia y despejada frente, con ojos que trasmiten un aire veladamente burlón, reforzado por esa boca entreabierta que parece iniciar una sonrisa, extenso bigote y perilla que buscan deshacer cierta tendencia a la redondez de los rasgos, y melena corta y amplia a ambos lados de la cabeza. Un rostro afable que se advierte también en el retrato conservado en el Círc

Sancho I of León
Oil on canvas. 1862
Valldeperas, Eusebio

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

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

Saint John the Evangelist
Oil on canvas. Ca. 1605
el Greco (Domenikos Theotokopoulos) (And Workshop)

Series of paintings representing the twelve Apostles, sometimes known as apostolados, were a common sub-genre in the religious painting of the Spanish Siglo de Oro. Such images could be part of altarpieces, and were also often used to decorate the walls of monasteries, convents, and private homes. This painting shows St. John the Evangelist, the author of the last of the four Gospels and the book

Episode after Trafalgar (sketch)
Oil on canvas. Ca. 1862
Sans Cabot, Francisco

This is the sketch for the artist’s foremost painting, shown in this room. The importance of French models in his work is appreciable, particularly the influence of Thomas Couture, under whom he trained in Paris, and his procedure of privileging masses of colour over the definition of outline. Other clear influences are Géricault and Delacroix.
