In the Studio
Oil on panel. Ca. 1880
Palmaroli y González, Vicente

A young woman seems to gaze dreamily at a canvas on an easel, over which a large cloth has been partially draped, and at a sheaf of prints on a stool. The Japanesestyle clothes, the bright colours and the cluttered scene - highly decorative in effect- clearly point to the influence of Fortuny’s orientalism on Palmorali’s work.

Smokers and Drinkers
Oil on panel. 1652
Teniers The Younger, David

Three figures enjoy tobacco in an expressive manner in the foreground while an onlooker leans through the window. Around a table in the background, another group of figures drinks or plays cards. This is an example of scenes inside taverns with smokers, drinkers and players, which Teniers made during the sixteen thirties. He began with figures by his teacher, Adriaen Brouwer (1605/1606-1638), whic

The Drawing Studio
Oil on canvas. 1780
Castillo, José del

A childhood scene located on a terrace beside a garden. Three elegantly clothed boys play with a cat. The academic drawing in the background, along with the portfolio and brush belonging to one of the boys, gave this work its name, as though it were an artistic study. This work belongs to a series of scenes related to education that sought to show the Enlightenment´s pedagogical ideas, which relat

The Martyrdom of the Roermond Carthusians
Oil on canvas. 1626 - 1632
Carducho, Vicente

On August 29, 1626, King Philip IV’s painter, Vicente Carducho (ca. 1576-1638), signed a contract for the creation of a cycle of paintings to celebrate the founding of the Carthusian Order by Saint Bruno and its leading members. This colossal undertaking sought to visually narrate numerous episodes from the Carthusians’ history and tradition. It was the most complete commission ever dedicated to t

The Immaculate Conception of El Escorial

The Immaculate Conception of El Escorial
Oil on canvas. 1660 - 1665
Murillo, Bartolomé Esteban

In this personification of the Virgin Mary as the Immaculate Conception, the protagonist, although still very youthful, is not as childlike as those of Zurbarán and Velázquez and lacks the descriptive and symbolic elements commonly found in earlier, undoubtedly archaic versions. Allusions to the litanies are omitted and artist reduces the image to the bare essentials: the young and s

Self-Portrait

Self-Portrait
Oil on canvas. 1884
Domingo Marqués, Francisco

From an early age, Domingo displayed considerable skill as a portraitist. In this self-portrait, he is seated in profile, standing out against a dark background. In contrast to the intimate, introspective nature of most self-portraits, here the artist clearly had a larger public in mind; this is evident in the format and the clothing, and also in the emphasis on the tools of the painter’s professi

The Genius of Painting

Mehus, Lieven
The Genius of Painting
Oil on canvas. Ca. 1650
Mehus, Lieven

Born in Flanders, Livio Mehus moved to Milan at a young age and is thus often considered an artist of the Italian school. He is recorded in Rome at the age of fourteen and later in Florence, Lucca and around Genoa. He also worked successively in Piamonte and Lombardy. There is ample documentation of his activity as a painter of frescoes and oils, an expert on northern Italian painting and a restor

The Siesta, or Pompeian Scene
Oil on canvas. 1868
Alma-Tadema, Sir Lawrence

A domestic scene set in classical antiquity. An old man and a youth recline on divans while an attractive young woman plays music on a double flute. Both the clothing and the setting suggest the Greek world, and the motives and clothing are rigorously faithful to archeological discoveries made in the mid nineteenth century. Despite being Dutch by birth, Sir Lawrence Alma cultivated an eclectic per

Mrs Delicado de Imaz
Oil on canvas. Ca. 1836
López Portaña, Vicente

The lady depicted here, around 50 years of age, is represented slightly greater than half-length, seated on a chair upholstered in green cloth, with a striking cashmere shawl of vivid colours lying on one of its arms. She is wearing a dark blue velvet dress with a lace mantilla covering her shoulders. Richly bejewelled, she wears a magnificent bracelet and a ring on her right hand, in which she is

The Calling of Saint Matthew

The Calling of Saint Matthew
Oil on canvas. 1661
Pareja, Juan de

Christ appears in the tax collector’s office and calls on Matthew to follow him. Matthew, depicted raising his right hand to his breast and with a star above his head, would become one of Christ’s most faithful followers and the author of one of the Gospels. Pareja, Velázquez’s former slave, places considerable emphasis on the setting of this work and also includes himself in the compositio

Still Life with Watermelon, Pastries, Bread and Wine
Oil on canvas. 1770
Meléndez, Luis Egidio

Luis Meléndez distinguished himself as the greatest bodegón, or still-life, painter in late eighteenth-century Spain. By this time, the popularity of the genre had declined in Spain and was not practiced by any of Meléndez’ contemporaries at court. Even so, Meléndez painted over one hundred bodegones in his lifetime, leading art historians to infer that he took a person

The Spinners, or the Fable of Arachne
Oil on canvas. 1655 - 1660
Velázquez, Diego Rodríguez de Silva y

This painting is the result of two acts carried out in different periods. First, Velázquez painted the surface occupied by the figures and the tapestry in the background. Later, in the 18th century, a wide strip (with the arch and oculus) was added to the top, along with narrower ones on the left, right and bottom (these additions are not visible in the current presentation of this work). T

The Triumph of Bacchus
Oil on canvas. 1844
Alenza, Leonardo

Pareja de la obra El sacamuelas (P7945) y pintado en el mismo año de 1844, presenta una clara relación con la obra homónima de Velázquez, que Alenza conoció en el Museo del Prado. En este lienzo, de todos modos, se resaltan mucho más los extremos de la embriaguez y el carácter burlesco de los personajes. La pintura revela un sentido abiertamente popular y jocoso. En el interior abovedado de una ta

Teniers The Younger, David

Depictions of painting galleries became popular in the Netherlands at the beginning of the 17th century. The exhibition of paintings and other artistic or natural objects was originally a way of manifesting the high social standing of an eminently bourgeois class with a strong desire to ennoble itself. In many cases, the paintings did not rigorously reflect the client’s collection, but served inst

Breenbergh, Bartholomeus

This painting entered the holdings of the Museo del Prado as an anonymous Flemish work, although the 1873 catalogue reports the attribution to the Le Nain brothers proposed by M. de Chennevières based on its purported similarity to The Procession (Paris, Musée du Louvre, inv. 6841), then held to be an original work by these artists. From 1942 onwards it is listed as executed by Frans

Sacrifice to Bacchus
Oil on canvas. Ca. 1634
Stanzione, Massimo

While it is first listed in 1666 at the Alcázar, where it hung alongside Ribera’s Fable of Bacchus or Teoxenia (of which only three fragments have survived: two at the Museo del Prado and one in a private collection), this work’s subject and dimensions suggest it may originally have been commissioned for the Buen Retiro Palace. Along with Finoglia’s Triumph of Bacchus (P7309), Poussin’s Sac

Queen Mariana of Austria
Oil on canvas. Ca. 1670
Carreño de Miranda, Juan

After the death of Philip IV in 1665, his widow Mariana (1634-1696) became regent. She is depicted here as both widow and regent in the Hall of Mirrors in the Alcázar in Madrid. The writing implements on the desk allude to her responsibilities as ruler. The overt inclusion of the royal palace into the royal portrait is one of the features that characterises the court portrait after Vel&aacu

López Portaña, Vicente

Born in 1786 in New Spain, María Francisca de la Gándara y Cardona was the widow of General Fñelix María Calleja del Rey, the last Spanish Viceroy of Mexico. She died in Valencia in 1855. She sits across from the viewer and looks directly at him. In her right hand she holds a breviary, marking the page where she intends to continue her interrupted reading. Her left hand
