Blind Man’s Buff
Oil on canvas. Ca. 1889
Jiménez Aranda, José
Blind Man’s Buff
Oil on canvas. Ca. 1889
Jiménez Aranda, José

During his time in Paris, Jiménez Aranda regularly produced tableautins (small, precisely painted works on eighteenth-century themes). The detailed description of the figures here contrasts with a freer approach to the background trees, revealing the artist’s powers as a landscape painter and the influence of French naturalism, which would determine his subsequent evolution.

Penitents in the Lower Basilica of Assisi

Penitents in the Lower Basilica of Assisi
Oil on canvas mounted on panel. 1874
Jiménez Aranda, José

Jiménez Aranda sets this scene of believers paying penance inside the well-known medieval basilica of Assisi, in Italy. Some of them carry large crosses and drag chains, while others pray at an altar, or chat with other characters dressed in eighteenth-century clothing. The subject clearly alludes to Goya´s abundant paintings of religious festivities. Nevertheless, the setting in an Italian

Self-portrait
Oil on canvas. Ca. 1856
Esquivel, Antonio María

El maestro sevillano se retrata de busto ante un fondo neutro, vistiendo una sencilla levita con cuello de terciopelo y corbata de lazo. Peinado con su abundante cabellera algo alborotada y su característico bigote y perilla, sus rasgos muestran ya las huellas de la edad, que parece rondar los cincuenta años. Su figura captada ligeramente de sotto in su, el ceño ligeramente fruncido y la seriedad

Washerwomen of La Varenne, France
Oil on canvas. Ca. 1865
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 Guadarrama from the Plantío de los Infantes
Oil on canvas. 1910
Beruete, Aureliano de

Madrid´s massive mountain range, the Sierra Madrileña, is depicted by Beruete from the outskirts of Madrid. This natural element was the painter´s favorite for his mountain landscapes. The work shows how this natural space was reclaimed as an axis for the regenerationalist politics that filled public life at the turn of the ninteenth to twentieth centuries. Understood as “the backbone of Sp

Execution of Torrijos and his Companions on the Beach at Málaga

Gisbert Pérez, Antonio
Execution of Torrijos and his Companions on the Beach at Málaga
Oil on canvas. 1888
Gisbert Pérez, Antonio

The finest work of all Gisbert’s production, this impressive painting is also unarguably one of the most beautiful of all 19th-century Spanish history paintings. Moreover, it is one of the greatest political manifestos of all Spanish painting in defense of human freedom crushed by authoritarianism and one of the very few cases in which a clear propagandistic message was directly inspired by govern

Boys on the Beach
Oil on canvas. 1909
Sorolla y Bastida, Joaquín
Boys on the Beach
Oil on canvas. 1909
Sorolla y Bastida, Joaquín

The series of paintings featuring the ‘children in the water’ motif culminates in this work, in which nude boys play a greater part in the composition than in other pictures by Sorolla. While it is signed in 1910 and this chronology has been followed by almost everyone, the artist must have painted it in the summer of 1909, as the image was already reproduced in a book by Rafael Doménech th

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).

God Bids Us Forgive!

García Sampedro, Luis
God Bids Us Forgive!
Oil on canvas. 1895
García Sampedro, Luis

Taking its cue from serialised fiction, the work narrates the return to her father’s home of a girl and her daughter, the fruit of an extra-marital relationship. Kneeling, she implores clemency from her father, whose anger is placated by a priest who reminds him of the duty to forgive. The emotional strength of the painting won it an award at the 1895 National Exhibition, whose jury chose to ignor

On the Beach of Santa Clara Sanatorium

On the Beach of Santa Clara Sanatorium
Oil on canvas. 1903
Godoy Castro, Federico

The picture shows some children from the sanatorium of Santa Clara, founded in 1901 by Dr Tolosa Latour, bathing on the beach at Chipiona. Both the form and the message of the composition are clearly indebted to Sorolla’s Sad Inheritance! (Valencia, Colección Bancaja), as it too denounces the dire consequences for children’s health of the ill habits of their parents, whose subsequent physic

Oil on canvas. 1874
Ferrant, Alejandro

Retrato del pintor Francisco Pradilla Ortiz (Villanueva de Gállego, Zaragoza, 1848-Madrid, 1921). Obra que destaca por la enorme soltura empleada para su ejecución y la espontaneidad que emana del retrato, que es capaz de reflejar con sumo acierto el ambiente de esfuerzo y estudio que se respiraba entre los primeros pensionados de la Academia Española de Bellas Artes de Roma. Esta promoción, ademá

Corner of Bruges or A Street in Bruges
Oil on canvas. 1902 - 1903
Álvarez de Sotomayor y Zaragoza, Fernando

During his third year as a grant student in Rome in 1902 Sotomayor and the painter Manuel Benedito travelled to Paris, various Dutch cities and Bruges, where he made numerous sketches and drawings in its museums and of the places he visited. Used as preparatory studies for narrative compositions, Sotomayor particularly favoured these views of Bruges for the settings of his works of this period

An Episode from the Battle of Tétouan
Oil on canvas. 1868
Rosales Gallinas, Eduardo

This painting captures a moment in the Battle of Tetuan, when Spanish and Moroccan troops fought each other as part of the war between those two countries in 1859 and 1860. The Moroccan troops shoot and gesticulate while, on the Spanish side, the presence of cavalry and a canon auger success in this skirmish. Rosales entered this work in a painting contest on this subject, which was won by Vicente

The Nymphs of the Sunset
Oil on canvas. Ca. 1898
Brull y Viñolas, Juan

During the Golden Age, the Spanish word ninfa (nymph), which referred especially to nocturnal nymphs, acquired a complementary meaning as an elegant way of referring to courtesans and women of loose customs. Brull used academic precepts and a realist language to represent these minor deities of the waters and forests, although the dreamlike veil covering the bodies and the twilight atmosphere of t

Pride
Oil on canvas. Ca. 1908
Gili y Roig, Baldomero

In the last years of the nineteenth century and the first of the twentieth, women were frequently depicted with certain attributes like the peacock in this painting, a symbol of vanity, that incarnated the defects regarded as specific to their gender. Pride is an extraordinary example of the pictorial expression of the so-called "female character", a reduction of woman’s essence to an archetype th

The Young Naturalists
Oil on canvas. 1893
Jiménez Aranda, José

Jiménez Aranda spent the 1880s in France where he encountered the naturalistic style of Jules Bastien-Lepage (1848-1884), and a subsequent period in Madrid where his work influenced Joaquín Sorolla. This canvas was painted after his move to Seville in 1893. Its restrained delicacy reveals attentive, first-hand observation expressed through careful draughtsmanship and a markedly preci
