The Immaculate Conception
Oil on canvas. Ca. 1645
Castillo Saavedra, Antonio del

All parts of this extraordinarily meticulous work are related to each other from a formal and iconographic standpoint. The Virgin appears in the foreground, where she occupies a considerable portion of the pictorial surface. This insures her powerful presence, and the painter emphasizes it with a very elaborate frame that fills the image with meaning. There are two clearly differentiated parts, th

Herrera The Younger, Francisco de

This work has recently been added to the donation made by Plácido Arango. It has been convincingly attributed to Francisco de Herrera the Younger due to the similarities between some of its details and those in autograph works by the artist, one of the most influential painters in Madrid and Seville in the mid-seventeenth century.

Paret y Alcázar, Luis

This painting was purchased by Charles IV for his personal collection, but was later transferred to the royal collections. Its facture and composition are similar to those of the works of French painter Michel-Nicolas Micheux (1688-1733), in the vein of an elegantly decorative Rococo style that was, however, about to be displaced by an all-conquering Neoclassicism that swept away all forms of the

The Miracle of Saint Anthony
Oil on canvas. Ca. 1665
Giordano, Luca

El santo portugués aparece representado de tres cuartos, de pie, junto a un oratorio o bufete cubierto por un paño, sobre el que reposa un libro y una vara de azucenas, mientras sostiene al Niño Jesús en sus brazos. Se trata de una obra en la que Giordano trata de imitar el estilo de Ribera.

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

Abundance and the Four Elements

Balen, Hendrick Van; Brueghel The Elder, Jan (Jan 'velvet' Brueghel)

Abundance, personified by Ceres, goddess of fertility and agriculture, sits in front of a thicket of reeds at the edge of a forest. She has adorned her hair with wheat spikes -her attribute- and bears the horn of plenty under her left arm. Earth sits at her feet, offering her one of her fruits, she is personified by Flora, goddess of the earth and also of spring, which explains the flowers in her

Vase of Flowers
Oil on canvas. 1694 - 1700
Belvedere, Andrea

Towards the edges of two moulded stone shelves rest two bronze vases with broad decorated bases and slender stems embraced, in one case by a group of tritons (P550) and, in the other by, a group of minute cherubs that support the upper section like dynamic Atlanteans (P549). These bases bear prodigious bouquets that are skilfully arranged with contrasting textures and colours that generate a marve

Basket of Flowers
Oil on canvas. 1668 - 1670
Arellano, Juan de

Resting on a stone base, an openwork wicker basket full of flowers is the subject of this painting. The flowers represent an enormous variety of species, enabling a notably rich range of colours and forms, even when the entire arrangement is structured symmetrically. Among the manifold varieties are lilies, tulips, hydrangeas, roses, anemones and carnations, some of which -like the tulips- would h

Saint Anthony of Padua
Oil on canvas. XVII century
Herrera The Younger, Francisco de

La composición, en origen inscrita en un óvalo que aún puede apreciarse, está ocupada casi en su totalidad por la figura del santo, quien sostiene entre sus brazos al Niño Jesús y una rama de azucenas, símbolo de su pureza. La iconografía que presenta el lienzo deriva de la aparición con que le otorgó la Virgen en su propia celda, para entregarle al Niño Dios, según relata el Liber Miraculorum, y

Saint Rosalia
Oil on canvas. Ca. 1697
Giordano, Luca

The saint holds a bunch of Madonna lilies in allusion to her purity and a garland of roses that recalls her name. Her attitude brings this depiction closer to the most characteristic models of Guido Reni. Born in Naples, Giordano painted in Spain between 1692 and 1702. He is notable for his mural paintings, such as those executed for the Casón del Buen Retiro.

An elaborate garland of flowers, fruit and animals frames a painting representing the Virgin Mary with the Christ Chile on her right arm and a crown of flowers in her left hand. Paintings of the Virgin framed with garlands were prized in the Flemish world, where they served as a response to the Protestant Reform that negated the validity of representations of the Virgin or of saints. Brueghel resp

The Virgin and Child between Saints Anthony of Padua and Roch
Oil on canvas. Ca. 1510
Titian (Tiziano Vecellio)

This work was first recorded in 1641 as a work by Titian belonging to the Duke of Medina de las Torres in Naples. It was, however, attributed to Giorgione for centuries until Wilhelm Schmidt again attributed it to Titian in 1904. Most specialists now share Schmidt’s opinion, except for Charles Hope, who considers it the work of an artist yet to be determined, and Paul Holberton, who believes it to

This is the central panel of the Altar piece of Saint Dominic, brought -with three other paintings in the Prado (P609, P610 and P615)- from the Convent of Santo Tomás in Ávila, the headquarters of the Inquisition. As the founder of the Dominican Order, Saint Dominic is shown holding a book and a fleur-de-lis. With his cross, he crushes a demon dog surrounded by flames, a symbol of ev

Hiepes, Tomás

This canvas with clearly defined characteristics is paired with another work at the Museo del Prado (P7912) whose shared circumstances help us to appreciate Hiepes’s achievements even more -especially his capacity to reflect the infinite aesthetic possibilities offered by the subject matter associated with still lifes. That second work was signed and dated in 1643, which allows us to assign a simi

Oil on canvas. Ca. 1663
Rizi, Francisco

The impetus of the dashing, powerful and monumental angel comes from Ribera. The conception of space and of the sky, with clouds that grow denser in the area just over the luminous horizon, seeks an effect of mass, and of notable solemnity and force. Behind the balustrade, a rose bush silhouetted by the light behind it stands out as a symbol of the Virgin Mary. The meticulously detailed carpet, wi

Seghers, Daniel; Quellinus, Erasmus

A rhomboidal garland of flowers surrounds grisaille figures of the Virgin and Child with Saint John. This is one of many examples of the collaboration between the Jesuit painter specializing in still lifes and flowers, Daniel Seghers, and the figure painter, Erasmus Quellinus. Their shared works were highly successful among European collectors during the Baroque era. The rhombic ordering of the gr

Saint Anthony of Padua with the Infant Christ
Oil on canvas. 1767 - 1769
Tiepolo, Giovanni Battista

Saint Anthony of Padua (1195-1231) wears a Franciscan habit and meditates before a book over which the Christ Child appears. This is one of the miracles of that saint´s tradition. The spray of lilies in the foreground is one of his iconographical symbols, and is accompanied here by the basket that symbolizes the alms on which that saint lived. This work was designed for an altar in the church of S
