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

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 full-length portrait of Queen María Luis de Parma (1751-1819), wife of King Carlos IV (1748-1819), wearing a large feathered hat and French lace, with a seventeenth-century style bustle and the sort of large skirt flattened in front and back that replaced the farthingale. The only jewelry she wears is the Cruz Estrellada award. Her hand rests on a table covered with a tablecloth on which

The painter Antonio Gomar y Gomar
Oil on canvas. 1906
Sorolla y Bastida, Joaquín

The Valencian painter Antonio Gomar (1853-1911), who specialised in landscapes and decorative compositions, is portrayed by his compatriot Sorolla at the age of 53. The work’s landscape format, influenced by photography, and which Sorolla reserved for portraits of family and friends, is indicative of how close he was to his model. Painted in the foreground, his body foreshortened to the left, and

The Holy Family
Oil on canvas. 1631
Carducho, Vicente

Vicente Carducho is a paradigmatic figure in Spanish painting from the early decades of the seventeenth century, a period of transition from the Tuscan-Roman mannerism to so-called early naturalism. In this context, the works of Carducho, who trained in the monastery of San Lorenzo de El Escorial together with his brother, Bartolomé, may be seen as prolonging the Tuscan traditions in their

Zurbarán, Francisco de

His legs are spread and gently flexed as he leans forward with bowed head and arms resting on two metal grips bolted to two enormous boulders to he

The Guadarrama
Oil on canvas. 1911
Beruete, Aureliano de

The snow-capped Sierra de Guadarrama is in the background, with fields of trees in the foreground. The technique combines short brushstrokes applied with a large amount of paint, capturing the variation of the light according to whether it is reflected by the snow or by the treetops. The highly horizontal composition is barely altered by the verticality of the trees. This painting was donated to t

He rests his right hand on a boulder. Notable here is the painter´s special sensitivity at capturing the model´s natural elegance, which recalls English child portraits.

Portrait of a Conquistador
Oil on panel. Ca. 1530
Anonymous

Although it has not proved possible to identify the sitter, the coat-of-arms links him to the conquest of America, while the text he holds up to the viewer, “My tenet and my value is to love only one God”, is related to the religious disputes of the time. The composition of the portrait recalls examples by the Flemish painter Jan Cornelisz. Vermeyen, though the execution shows less precision.

The wall of El Pardo
Oil on canvas. 1911
Beruete, Aureliano de

Though it had been painted by many landscape artists since the middle of the nineteenth century, Aureliano de Beruete made the Sierra de Guadarrama mountain range his primary subject, from the beginning of his career to the end. For him, these mountains north of Madrid represented the backbone of Spain, structuring the two central regions that flank it to the north and south: the tablelands of Old

During his trip to Paris in the autumn of 1913 Sorolla painted the wife of Jacques Seligmann, a leading art dealer of German origin, emphasising her beauty and elegance through the use of a restrained background painted with very loose brushstrokes. Impasto is reserved for the brightest areas such as the flesh tones and the sumptuous white shawl.

Oil on canvas. 1896
Cutanda y Toraya, Vicente

Situado el pintor Ricardo Arredondo frente a su caballete con la paleta en la mano, mira a su amigo y retratista Vicente Cutanda con gesto espontáneo. Es un retrato al aire libre, de técnica suelta, representando al retratado de medio cuerpo, con la cabeza descubierta y el cabello naturalmente revuelto y movido por el aire campestre, inmerso en el áspero paisaje, que suavizan la arboleda y los pin
