Prince Carlos de Viana
Oil on canvas. 1881
Moreno Carbonero, José

The eldest son of King Juan II of Aragon and Queen Blanca of Navarre, Carlos de Viana was heir to both thrones, yet his father disowned him in favor of his other son, Fernando “The Catholic.” Because of his growing popularity in Catalonia, Fernando forced him to abandon public life, and that is the moment Moreno Carbonero immortalizes in this work. A resigned Carlos dedicates himself to reading an

Female Nude, or After the Bath
Oil on canvas. Ca. 1869
Rosales Gallinas, Eduardo

Considered to be, with good reason, the most beautiful nude in nineteenth-century Spanish painting, this work provides eloquent testimony of the modernity that made Rosales stand out in the Spanish artistic panorama of his time. He would have earned himself a prominent place among the era´s artistic vanguard in Europe if his brilliant career had not been cut short by his premature death. Neither a

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 chamber of Philip IV in the Buen Retiro Royal Palace
Oil on panel. 1881
Poleró y Toledo, Vicente

Mariana of Austria, Queen Consort between 1665 and 1675, talks to the Jesuit priest Nithard, her confessor and confidant, in the presence of her son Charles II, still a minor. The scene takes place in a room in the Buen Retiro Palace –on the left we see a Hieronymite monk– decorated by the painter with works related to Velazquez and King Philip IV: Las Meninas, the equestrian portraits of Philip I

Ascent of a Montgolfier Balloon at Aranjuez
Oil on canvas. Ca. 1784
Carnicero, Antonio

The event depicted in this painting by Antonio Carnicero illustrates the interest in scientific advances characteristic of the Enlightenment, a historical period from the second half of the 18th century dominated by practical reason. The image shows French balloon pilot Bouclé’s experiment in the gardens of the Royal Seat at Aranjuez on June 5, 1784, during the final years of Charles III’s

Tegeo Díaz, Rafael

In this portrait, Pedro Benítez sits informally on a chair, resting his left arm on its back while gazing frankly and directly at the viewer with whom he establishes an empathetic relationship. He is dressed in the fashion of the reign of Ferdinand VII, with a marvellous cravat emerging from his vest and a book in his right hand. Beside him, standing, is his daughter María de la Cruz

The Two Caudillos
Oil on canvas. 1866
Casado del Alisal, José

This painting was presented at the National Exhibition of Fine Arts in 1866. It depicts the Great Captain´s encounter with the body of his adversary after the famous battle for the control of the Kingdom of Naples, which was fought during the reign of the Catholic Kings. The page, who still holds the body of his dead lord, directs an imploring gaze at the Spanish hero. The painter clearly captures

Saint John the Baptist
Oil on panel. Ca. 1566
Morales, Luis de

It is not known when or how these two paintings -Saint John the Baptist and Saint Juan de Ribera (P947)- came to be the property of Luisa Enríquez, but their common provenance has never been seen as an indication of a link with the same group of art works. However, the technical study that was recently carried out on the two panels shows that they are directly and unequivocally related in t

The Pentecost
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. Despite the agreement reached in the contract, the paintings were not completed until De

Rico y Ortega, Martín

Martín Rico was one of the leading Spanish landscape painters of the second half of the nineteenth-century. He was particularly interested in depicting tranquil stretches of water, and during his long stay in France he often painted the countryside around the rivers Seine and Marne near Paris. Here, using a very limited range of colours, he arranges the composition in parallel horizontal st

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

Beruete, Aureliano de

A landscape on the banks of the Manzanares River with the skyline of Madrid in the background. Some of the city´s most significant buildings can be identified, including the dome of San Francisco el Grande. A man with a group of cows is visible in the foreground. The palette of dark earth tones and the type of brushstrokes show how Beruete was influenced —especially here— by his teacher, Carlos de

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 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

Oil on canvas. 1881
Pinazo Camarlench, Ignacio

On his deathbed, King James I of Aragon gives his sword to his son, begging him not to sheath it until the Muslims have been totally expulsed and the Reconquista completed. In this work, Pinazo presents a subject directly related to his homeland of Valencia, where this abdication took place. The painting was made to be sent to the National Exhibition of Fine Arts in 1881 after the success of an ea

Tadea Arias de Enríquez
Oil on canvas. Ca. 1789
Goya y Lucientes, Francisco de

This portrait presents the lady at full length, dressed in the fashion of the time in a tulle gown with lace details. Goya perfectly captures the translucence of the fabric, through which we see the shimmer of the pink skirt the sitter wears underneath. At her waist the lady wears a wide black tulle band, which is also semi-transparent, and on the waistband she has pinned a lovely cameo brooch. He

Queen Isabella the Catholic dictating her Will
Oil on canvas. 1864
Rosales Gallinas, Eduardo

Rosales depicts the moment when the Catholic Queen dictates her last will and testament at Medina del Campo on 12 October 1504, just days before she died. Isabel stands out in a royal chamber almost in darkness, in a canopy bed, with a medal of the Order of Saint James on her bosom. The white sheets contrast with the muted colors of the other personages. The only note of color is the red robe of a

Ignacio Gutiérrez Solana, Overseer of the Royal Stables
Oil on canvas. Ca. 1823
López Portaña, Vicente

The man in the portrait, wearing his palace uniform, holds in his left hand a bundle of “royal orders”. The painting follows the style of portraits of professionals that López worked on in his years at the service of Fernando VII, in which he stressed the sitter’s job through the tools of his trade.
