The Riva degli Schiavoni in Venice
Oil on canvas. 1873
Rico y Ortega, Martín
The Riva degli Schiavoni in Venice
Oil on canvas. 1873
Rico y Ortega, Martín

Venice was the predominant subject of most of Rico’s paintings, since he spent the summer months there for over thirty years. He was particularly interested in the bustling commercial life of the docks. Despite its apparent realism, this is an adapted view of Venice; Rico has removed the imposing prison building, which prompted the legend of the famous Bridge of Sighs. Legado de

Departure from the Inn
Oil on panel. Ca. 1660
Wouwerman, Philips

The picture belongs to a group of scenes set inside a stable which Wouwerman began painting in 1655. This cycle is an exception in the painter`s output, which was mainly focused on outdoor scenes. Most of these stable views are based on the same compositional scheme: two-thirds of the panel is occupied by the dark interior of the stable, which opens out on the left towards a landscape painted in m

The Painter Aureliano de Beruete

The Painter Aureliano de Beruete
Oil on canvas. 1902
Sorolla y Bastida, Joaquín

The Painter Aureliano de Beruete is the most outstanding of all the portraits made by Sorolla. In this work he successfully combined the Velázquez inspiration that was a feature of his oeuvre during that period with direct and rigorous painting from the life and a profound and sensitive interpretation of the sitter’s outstanding personality. Sorolla was especially gifted at portraiture owin

A Guadarrama Landscape

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

Self-portrait
Oil on canvas. Ca. 1865
Balaca y Orejas Canseco, Ricardo

Sobre fondo liso de entonaciones sienas, se recorta el busto del artista representado con la cabeza ligeramente girada hacia el espectador. El soporte de la ejecución es un sólido dibujo que denota un academicismo riguroso, sobre todo en la línea y en la construcción del volumen, que no impide una pincelada suelta y vibrante, especialmente en la cabeza.Ricardo Balaca asiste en la Academia de San F

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 Mouth of the Bidasoa

Rico y Ortega, Martín
The Mouth of the Bidasoa
Oil on canvas. 1872
Rico y Ortega, Martín

A serene landscape with the Bidasoa River´s mouth at the Cantabrian Sea, as seen from the sands of Fuenterrabía. This landscape, along with sixteen other works, was presented by Rico at the Universal Exhibition of 1878 in Paris, where it was qualified as “spiritual, compositions that appear to have been made with drops of light on the end of the brush.” This work entered the Prado Museum as

An Elderly Gentleman
Oil on canvas. 1587 - 1600
el Greco (Domenikos Theotokopoulos)

A portrait of an anonymous nobleman, possibly from Toledo, with a narrow white ruff. The background is neutral. This work is considered one of the artist´s finest portraits. With the combination of thin and thick brushstrokes, he manages to bring the sitter extraordinarily close to us. This painting is listed in the inventories of Madrid´s Alcázar Palace from 1666, 1686 and 1700. It is sign

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

Dead Cockerel

Dead Cockerel
Oil on panel. 1659 - 1660
Metsu, Gabriël

Recent restoration has enabled a much better appreciation of this picture, since the thick layer of oxidised glaze that previously covered the surface made it impossible to judge the space and depth of the composition. As a result, the cockerel´s body is no longer outlined against the dark, plain background, but seen hanging from a string above a table inside some kind of architectural space -an a

View of Paris from the Trocadero

View of Paris from the Trocadero
Oil on canvas. 1883
Rico y Ortega, Martín

In 1883 Rico received the most significant commissions of his career: two views of Venice for the Marquis of Casa Riera and this panoramic view of Paris for Josefa de Manzanedo e Intentas, II Marchioness of Manzanedo. One of the wealthiest women of her time, she was a very close friend of Ramón de Errazu, who owned a portrait of her by Jean-Louis-Ernest Meissonier (1815-1891). She had also

Woman from Madrid
Oil on canvas. Ca. 1913
Zuloaga y Zabaleta, Ignacio

Dressed for attending the bullfight, with a white mantilla and hair comb and holding a large fan, the subject looks defiantly at the viewer. The expressivity of the face and intensity of the gaze make this female portrait one of Zuloaga’s finest works from this period.

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).

Execution of Torrijos and his Companions on the Beach at Malaga

Gisbert Pérez, Antonio

Previously considered a preliminary study, this is in fact an unfinished, reduced-size replica of the painting and an exact reproduction of it. Gisbert had produced other smaller replicas of some of his paintings, including The Communards and The Puritans. Here he reused a panel with another composition, as the X-radiograph shows. The texture of the paint on this support, which differs from that o

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

Spain Insuring the Glory of the Philippines
Oil on canvas. 1888
Luna y Novicio, Juan

The painting, which is now in the collection of Museo Nacional del Prado and on long-term loan to the City Council of Cádiz, is signed “Luna = Paris 1888”. It was completed by the time Luna moved to Paris, after winning a First Class medal for Spoliarium in 1884. It was commissioned by the Overseas Ministry and would be exhibited in the Barcelona Universal Exposition. The figure of Spain we

El Cid
Oil on canvas. 1879
Bonheur, Rosa

During the Franco-Prussian War, Rosa Bonheur developed a singular fondness for lions. According to Anna Klumpke, her partner in the final years of her life, Bonheur was always attracted to the primeval energy of animals. She began studying them at fairs, which she visited in trousers to observe horses and cattle. Her choice of clothing required a “transvestite permit” from the authorities, as only
