Marriage Contract and Country Dance
Oil on canvas. Ca. 1711
Watteau, Jean-Antoine

Known as a painter of “fêtes galantes”, Watteau combines a depiction of a marriage ceremony with a cheerful country dance. His composition recalls numerous scenes in Flemish painting, as does the natural setting.

The Dance. Folk Traditions from the Province of Soria
Oil on canvas. 1866
Domínguez Bécquer, Valeriano

In 1865 the Government of Isabel II commissioned Valeriano Domínguez Bécquer to capture the customs and costumes of Spain´s provinces. This work is part of that project whose anthropological bent was very much in keeping with the Romantic mentality. It shows one of the traditional dances from the province of Soria. This work entered the Prado Museum in 1878 from the now-defunct Museu

This canvas depicts an equestrian event that took place at the Palace of Aranjuez in 1770. It was attended by Charles III and Princess María Luisa, his daughter-in-law, who are to be seen in the second box adjoining the palace façade, and by a crowd of subtly individualised figures.

Teniers The Younger, David

A group of local people dance to the sound of bagpipes and a hurdy-gurdy in honour of a bride, who presides at the table in the background, surrounded by what seem to be older relatives or guests. The distant background, in which a tall-spired church can be made out, is populated by a group of distinguished personages, one of whom could be Archduke Leopold Wilhelm of Austria, governor of the Spani

The Meadow of San Isidro
Oil on unlined canvas. 1788
Goya y Lucientes, Francisco de

Goya never actually painted the cartoon for this scene, which is one of his masterpieces, and the most popular of a series intended for the bedroom of the infantas in Madrid's El Pardo Palace. The project was suspended following the death of Carlos III. Here, the painter manages to capture the sensation of life and the hustle and bustle of a crowd sitting in the meadow. The landscape opens onto th

Elegantly dressed nobles with swords, capes and sunshades join the lower-class majos and majas on the banks of the river Manzanares and indulge in gambling, dancing and fishing. This is a sketch for a cartoon for a tapestry to decorate the apartments of the Prince and Princess of Asturias at the Palace of El Pardo.

Country Wedding

Brueghel The Elder, Jan (Jan 'velvet' Brueghel)

A wedding procession moves towards the church in a rural setting. The male members of both families lead the procession, headed by the groom. The flower in his hand is clearly a symbol of matrimony. The bride remains among the women. Both wear black clothing and a broad ruff collar, in keeping with early seventeenth-century style. The artist draws on the work of his father, Pieter Brueghel “the El

This is the central panel of an altarpiece from Siguenza Cathedral, part of which is preserved in the sacristy. It was made up of ten panels distributed into five vertical sections and a predella. The Prado owns five of them. Two key moments marked the history of the altarpiece of Saint John the Baptist and Saint Catherine, originally sited in a chapel at the east end of Sigüenza Cathedral. T

Gathering in a Garden
Oil on canvas. Mid-XVIIIcentury
Flipart, Charles-Joseph

A group of youth play, accompanied by music in a garden setting. Two of them begin to dance, while others form small scenes of gallantry around them. This elegant courtly composition is completed by the images of the musicians. This work displays Rococo taste, showing the new French styles and customs practiced by the Spanish upper classes. The format of this work indicates that, originally, it pr

Wedding Banquet
Oil on canvas. 1623
Brueghel The Elder, Jan (Jan 'velvet' Brueghel)

The artist chose the end of a wedding banquet in the country to offer a depiction of rural life during one its most collective moments. Some figures are shown inebriated, others are dancing, kissing and embracing or bringing gifts to the married couple located in the background before a red hanging.

Oil on canvas. 1858

This painting depicts an excerpt of Rinconete and Cortadillo by Cervantes in which Monipodio breaks a plate to use the resulting shattered pieces as an improvised percussion instrument, with which he accompanied Escalante’s dance. Escalante is the female figure in the centre of the scene, performing a folkloric dance in which she stands balanced in one leg and raises her other leg. At the same tim

This painting, prepared by Paret in an excellent drawing (British Museum in London, inv. 1890,1209.50) and titled Baile in máscara (The Masked Ball), on a cartouche as a kind of label, is one of the earliest known works by the artist. It demonstrates great technical and compositional skill in arranging a subtly illuminated interior filled with a multitude of figures. The varied dress, poses

This tapestry cartoon represents a popular scene of Majos and Majas dancing Seguidillas on the banks of Madrid´s Manzanares River. In the background, Goya painted the area around the Pontones Bridge, near la Quinta del Sordo, the land and house he bought in 1819. The resultant tapestry was intended to hang in the dining room of the Prince and Princess of Asturias (the future Carlos IV and hi

A cartoon for the tapestry to be hung in the Prince of Asturias´s quarters at the El Pardo Palace. Two Majos appear at the center of the composition, playing characteristic 18th-century Spanish narrow-wasted popular guitars with five double strings (as indicated by their ten visible tuning pegs). Baroque guitars had five double strings, but around 1760 another pair was added, although both t

En el centro de la composición, un músico sentado tocando una guitarra de tipología francesa y unas figuras danzando refuerzan el carácter festivo de la representación. Detrás del guitarrista hay una figura masculina con las palmas de las manos abiertas hacia el espectador que podría estar cantando algún palo flamenco. La mujer con vestimenta en tonos rosas danza apoyando el pie derecho sobre la p

Indian Dancers
Oil on canvas. Ca. 1924
Chicharro y Agüera, Eduardo

Attracted by the mythical image of India, a country he never visited, Chicharro here offers a homoerotic and literary vision of two Hindu ritual dancers at rest. The artist, who was living in Rome at this date, paid close attention to realistic details such as the finger dye and the necklaces and bracelets in a painting in which light and colour are used to suggest sensuality.

This fast and loose sketch, made in black chalk with very few lines and surely drawn from life, is a preparatory work for a figure in the tapestry cartoon Dance on the banks of the Manzanares (1777). The individuality of the face is achieved with a single line; a few short lines mark the sideburn, and vigorous, confident strokes depict the hat. The scarce clarity highlights the contours, and defin
