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.

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

Memories of Catalonia
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.

Manuela de Errazu
Oil on canvas. 1870 - 1871
Madrazo y Garreta, Raimundo de

The eldest of six children born to Joaquín María de Errazu and Guadalupe Rubio de Tejada, Manuela was born in Querétaro (Mexico) in 1839. Her family, of Spanish origin, amassed a huge fortune through the industrial development of that Central-American country. When she was fifteen years old, her parents moved to the most exclusive neighborhood in Paris. There, despite some cri

The painter Joaquin Sorolla
Oil on canvas. 1901
Jiménez Aranda, José

In 1901, Sorolla and Jiménez Aranda painted portraits of each other. They had known each other since the early 1890s, successively occupied the same study in Madrid, and it was the painter from Seville who introduced Sorolla into the costumbrism painting of Mariano Fortuny. The Valencian artist, here at the age of 38, is portrayed hard at work, wearing his smock and bearing his tools, namel

The Painter Eduardo Zamacois

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.

Oil on paper attached to cardboard. 1863
Rosales Gallinas, Eduardo

This study is an initial idea for the composition of the final canvas which the artist devised through numerous preparatory studies and drawings, the majority in the Prado. Rosales tried out the colour, lighting and arrangement of the figures, most of them grouped on the right including the seated Ferdinand the Catholic.

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.

Fantasy on Faust
Oil on canvas. 1866
Fortuny, Mariano

In this work, Fortuny establishes an eloquent link between painting and music and a clear exposition of what his friend, the Baron Davillier, called his very lively and very pure taste in music. Fortuny depicts one of the musical evenings that he attended in Madrid during the summer of 1866 at his friend and former classmate, Catalan painter Francisco Sans y Cabot’s studio at no. 13, calle Flor Ba

Tobias and the Angel
Oil on canvas. 1858 - 1863
Rosales Gallinas, Eduardo

According to the Bible, Tobias was standing by a river when he was attacked by a giant fish. He was saved by his guardian angel. The painting shows the protagonist seeking refuge from the angel. The latter is turned slightly to the left. He points at the fish with his left hand, calming the boy. The closeness of this work to the aesthetics of the German Nazarine painters or the Italian Prerafaelis

This is a preparatory sketch for the canvas preserved at the Musée des Beaux-Arts in Lyon (Les Frères de la mort dans la campagne de Rome, A 2975), which was presented by the artist at the Paris Salon of 1863. It shows the activity of the lay confraternity of San Giovanni Decollato, responsible in Italy for the bodies of the poor and the condemned.

The mural paintings that decorated the house known as “la Quinta del Sordo,” where Goya lived have come to be known as the Black Paintings, because he used so many dark pigments and blacks in them, and also because of their somber subject matter. The private and intimate character of that house allowed the artist to express himself with great liberty. He painted directly on the walls in what must
