A Square in Paris
Oil on canvas. 1887
Meifrén Roig, Eliseo

This is one of Meifrén’s views of Paris, where he spent various periods from the late 1870s onwards. It depicts a café on the Place de Clichy near Montmartre. It predates the depictions of such subjects by other Catalan artists including Santiago Rusiñol and Ramón Casas, while the truncated, angled position of the table in the foreground reveals the influence of the rec

A Boat at Cabañal Beach (Valencia)
Oil on canvas. 1880
Pinazo Camarlench, Ignacio

Una barca de vela izada permanece en la orilla junto a un grupo de personas. La pincelada briosa y muy empastada, observable a simple vista, delata que el cuadro se trata de un apunte rápido, tomado del natural. La importancia concedida a la luz, aventura un tipo de pintura que se anticipa al luminismo de Sorolla.

Isabel de Borbón, Wife of Philip IV
Oil on canvas. Ca. 1620
Villandrando, Rodrigo de

The daughter of Henri IV of France and Marie de Médicis, Isabel de Borbón (1603-1644) was the first wife of Philip IV and the mother of Prince Baltasar Carlos and María Teresa of Austria. In Villandrando’s portrait, painted a year before Isabel became Queen of Spain, she wears a stiff, sumptuous dress that emphasises her presence and royal status. Although Spanish in cut, the

The Concert
Oil on panel. Ca. 1875
Palmaroli y González, Vicente

An enormously versatile painter, Palmaroli also produced the small-format paintings known as tableautins popular with collectors at this period. Following Fortuny, his numerous genre scenes deploy a brilliant chromatic range and an extremely virtuoso technique. They depict inconsequential subjects, often inspired by the 18th century and set in richly decorated interiors that on occasions include i

The Legend of the Monk King

Casado del Alisal, José
The Legend of the Monk King
Oil on canvas. 1880
Casado del Alisal, José

Traditionally known as The Bell of Huesca, this painting depicts one of the most terrifying events in the history of Medieval Spain. Ramiro II of Aragon decapitated all the noblemen who had dared to challenge his royal power, one by one. As he had promised to make a bell that would ring to reaffirm his power, he did so with the heads of the rebel noblemen. For the clapper, he used the head of the

La Tirana

La Tirana
Oil on canvas. Ca. 1875
Casado del Alisal, José

This painting features a young and attractive “Manola” [woman of the people, particularly in Madrid] reminiscent of the famous actress nicknamed “the Tyrant” portrayed by Goya. Slightly recumbent on a finely-carved couch, she is wearing a striking blue gold-embroidered short jacket. The picture is highly charged with sensuality and eroticism, embodied through her languid gaze, her gesture of cover

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 Poet Manuel José Quintana

Ribelles y Helip, José
The Poet Manuel José Quintana
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.

Oil on panel. 1880
Palmaroli y González, Vicente

Establecido en París desde 1873, Palmaroli desarrolló un tipo de pintura de género que le proporcionó un extraordinario éxito. Esta refinada tabla, la versión más depurada de un asunto que repitió en varias ocasiones, es reflejo de sus propios veraneos en la localidad francesa de Trouville-sur-Mer (Normandía) y muestra del entorno sofisticado que le rodeaba. La elegante y estilizada joven está rep

The Immaculate Conception

Pereda y Salgado, Antonio de
The Immaculate Conception
Oil on canvas. 1636
Pereda y Salgado, Antonio de

Among the painters working in Madrid, Pereda possessed one of the most distinctive styles, which derived from his study of Flemish and Venetian painting and is evident in works that combine chromatic richness with heavy impasto and descriptive precision. This Immaculate Conception is a typical example of his style but is iconographically unusual in that the Virgin’s mantle was originally red.

The Fall of Lucifer
Oil on canvas. 1840
Esquivel, Antonio María
The Fall of Lucifer
Oil on canvas. 1840
Esquivel, Antonio María

Lucifer was one of God´s favorite angels. He was expulsed from Heaven when he rebelled against His power. To represent the subject, Esquivel chose the moment when, with a stern expression, Saint Michael separates him from Celestial Glory. The subject is comparable to Saint Michael´s fight with the dragon of sin, which was frequently depicted by innumerable artists. Nevertheless, Esquivel eschews t

Doctor Francisco Rodríguez de Sandoval

Sorolla y Bastida, Joaquín
Doctor Francisco Rodríguez de Sandoval
Oil on canvas. 1906
Sorolla y Bastida, Joaquín

The doctor poses in an armchair, crossing his legs and turning to look forward with a lively expression concentrated in his intelligent gaze. He looks about forty years old and wears a gray suit with a vest and gloves of the same color. His brightly lit figure stands out against a neutral gray background that darkens considerably at his back and appears to reflect the light from a gilded frame.Doc

The Immaculate Conception
Oil on canvas. 1783 - 1784
Goya y Lucientes, Francisco de

Goya breaks with Baroque tradition, interpreting this typified subject according to the new principles of Neoclassicism. The clothing no longer flies around the figure, but instead adapts to the body in a natural manner. This delightful and emotive work is a preparatory sketch for the canvas belonging to the main altarpiece of the church of the College of the Order of Calatrava in Salamanca. It wa

Head of sleeping Cat
Oil on canvas attached to panel. Ca. 1885
Domingo Marqués, Francisco

El gato en sus distintas actitudes fue un motivo de representación habitual entre los pintores españoles del siglo XIX, conservándose numerosos ejemplares dibujados. Domingo Marqués pintó esta minúscula obra durante sus años de estancia en París. Se centra en la cabeza de un gato de pelo blanco con manchas marrones y grises en torno a las orejas que duerme sobre un tejido estampado en tonos rojizo

Snow-covered Banks of Lake Trasimeno
Oil on canvas. Ca. 1875
Morera y Galicia, Jaime

Morera painted various views of this lake in the region of Umbria. This canvas was sent back to Spain during his first study year at the Spanish Academy in Rome. It reveals his interest in the winter landscape, which he reaffirmed years later in his views of the snow-covered peaks of the Sierra de Guadarrama.

Sofía Vela y Querol
Oil on canvas. 1850
Madrazo y Kuntz, Federico de

Although Federico de Madrazo began working in the genre of historical painting, his gifts as an artist promptly led him to portraiture, which he cultivated in all its forms throughout his lengthy career and in which he conspicuously excelled. This portrait of Sofía Vela is one of the best from the artist´s romantic period and is a superb example of the intimate portrait. It was exhibited at

Capture of a Stronghold
Oil on canvas. Ca. 1697
Giordano, Luca

Luca Giordano decorated three spaces in the Casón, an outbuilding of the Buen Retiro Palace, Madrid. The first was the central hall, which still exists, where he painted the fresco Apotheosis of the Spanish Monarchy, as well as sixteen scenes of the Labours of Hercules, now sadly lost.Two galleries that flanked this hall were destroyed in the late nineteenth century. The eastern one led to
