The Doorway of the Palace of the Marquis of Dos Aguas (Valencia)
Oil on panel. Ca. 1885
Domingo Marqués, Francisco

Various gentlemen in Carlos IV-style clothing gather in front of the palace of the Marquis of Dos Aguas in Valencia. They are accompanied by a pack of dogs and various lackeys. Domingo´s technique is based on short, schematic brushstrokes that shape the figures, bringing great luminosity and colorist expressivity to the overall composition. This type of small, lively works was especially popular w

The Virgin Nursing the Child
Oil on panel. Ca. 1565
Morales, Luis de

These works (P944 and P7948) embody a more decorous variation of the breastfeeding Madonna, a reference to the succour afforded by the Virgin to all believers. Morales designed a composition which avoids both the representation of Mary’s nude breast and explicit lactation. With both hands, Mary holds a Child who seeks maternal consolation, lifting the veil with one hand and touching the modestly c

Sánchez Coello, Alonso

Alonso Sánchez Coello was court painter to Philip II and he united two different pictorial styles developed in the mid sixteenth century by Titian and Anthonis Mor respectively. Sánchez Coello´s images are austere in their presentation, yet they include certain symbolic elements that place the sitters in a suitable context easily legible to the viewer. The sitters´ dress and certain

Este oratorio portátil es una pieza excepcional que aúna dos delicados trabajos de Damián Forment y Juan de Juanes, figuras fundamentales del Renacimiento en la Corona de Aragón.

This expressive head is executed with great technical virtuosity. Typologically, it can be related to the Pseudo-Seneca which derives from a classical Roman bust traditionally thought to depict this Stoic philosopher.

Cordier, Nicolas. Il Franciosino (Manner Of)

This full-length statue of the Emperor Tiberius (42BC to 37AD) is striking in its combination of materials, also found in other works by Cordier such as the Saint Agnes made for the Roman church of that name and incorporating a classical alabaster bust. It is not known how the present work entered the collection of Queen Christina of Sweden, which was begun in the 1650s.

Around 1700, Livio Odescalchi commissioned a statue of Augustus (63 B.C.-4 A.D.) to be paired with another of Tiberio (E00112) acquired with the collection of Christine of Sweden. Its style is more classical and less daring, and follows the ancient esthetic more faithfully. The portrait repeats the famous Primaporta type Augustus. The cream-colored alabaster looks like the marble used by the Roman

The piece belongs to a group of four busts of Ethiopians purchased for the Buen Retiro Palace in 1678 by Charles II. Their inspiration comes from models by the French sculptor Nicolas Cordier, the creator of the celebrated and enigmatic Moor (1607-12), a sculpture of alabaster and various coloured marbles made for Scipione Borghese and now preserved at the Musée du Louvre.

This life-size bust of Felipe II (1527-1598) has a breastplate, a gorget and a cord with the Golden Fleece as its only ornamental elements. The lower part ends in a winged figurehead. The polished surface and the head´s details raise doubts as to which member of the Leoni family made this work, and some consideration has been given to the possibility that it was made by a marble cutter´s workshop
