The Kitchen
Oil on panel. 1643
Teniers The Younger, David

This is a singular example of David Teniers´ indoor scenes. The kitchen or tavern utensils so common in his other works are completed here with a magnificent show of diverse fruit and vegetables. This converts the right part of the composition into a still life. On the left, a character shells mussels, a traditional foodstuff in the Low Countries, while another group works beside the fireplace. Th

Country Celebration
Oil on copperplate. Ca. 1650
Teniers The Younger, David

Peasants or villagers hold a feast in front of a tavern or inn, recognizable by its red flag. They drink, eat and dance to the music of a bagpiper standing on a barrel. On the left, various distinguished personages, who stand out because of their different clothing, look on with a combination of curiosity and indifference. A large church in the background indicates there is a town nearby. On the b

This work and its pair, A Saxon Villager Driving a Barrel with a Wheelbarrow (P2271), may have been gifts sent by the Elector of Saxony, Augustus III, to his daughter, Queen Maria Amalia, and his son-in-law, Charles of Bourbon. This eighteenth-century taste for popular scenes is reflected in several of the monarch’s commissions, such as those for the tapestries of José del Castillo, Bayeu a

Saint Paul
Tempera on twill / twill weave canvas. 1491 - 1499
Berruguete, Pedro

This is one of a group of four tempera paintings on canvas twill probably from the church of Santo Tomás in Avila. The four are thematically grouped in two pairs, one with depictions of saints -Saint Peter (P124) and the present Saint Paul- and the other, an Adoration of the First Magus (P125) and Two Magi (P126). The four works have similar compositions, with Renaissance structures and fun

This canvas is an example of the 18th-century fascination with popular costumes and occupations. Charles III himself fostered the publication of prints on these subjects, both in Naples and in Spain, in order to draw attention to the diversity of his subjects. Like its pair, A Saxon Peasant Villager in her Kitchen (P2270), it was a gift of the Elector of Saxony, Augustus III, to his daughter Maria

Wedding Banquet presided by the Archdukes
Oil on canvas. 1612 - 1613
Brueghel The Elder, Jan (Jan 'velvet' Brueghel)

The pendant of Country Wedding (P01441) shows the banquet that follows the wedding procession. The bride sits under a straw canopy at the center of the scene, which Brueghel sets under four leafy trees, revealing the great importance he gave to landscapes. The presence of the Archduke Alberto de Austria and the Infanta Isabel Clara Eugenia, then governors of the Low Countries, makes this work an i

Rustic Concert with Pipe and Violin
Oil on panel. 1635 - 1637
Ostade, Adriaen Van

This work belongs to the so-called peasant interiors, one of the new genres of painting that emerged and developed in the Netherlandsin the early seventeenth century. In Houbraken and in early inventories they are described as een boertje, (a little peasant) or as toeback rookerchen (tobacco smokers). The consolidation and appreciation of this genre was fostered by the satirical and moralising lit

Monkeys smoking and drinking
Oil on panel. Ca. 1660
Teniers The Younger, David

This work is part of the series of six panels of monkey scenes in the Museo Nacional del Prado (from P01805 to P01810). The subject matter has been associated with human foolishness since the Middle Ages and is drawn from the oeuvre of Pieter Brueghel the Elder and Peter van der Borcht. Teniers successfully captures the ambivalence of mankind in its animal nature. Four apes are smoking around a ta

En este bodegón los alimentos están dispuestos en primer término: un plato con acerolas, cuyos fuertes matices rojos atraen la vista hacia el centro de la escena, acompañado, a un lado, por manzanas y una pera, y, al otro, por un gran queso blando. Los otros elementos de la composición son distintos recipientes, como dos tarros de miel de diferentes tipos de cerámica, tapados con papel, una frasca

Bacchus, the god of wine, is the figure traditionally associated with Autumn. Accompanied here by a satyr with a wineskin, he leans on a barrel and raises a goblet of wine in a pose inspired by the classical marble statue of the Resting Satyr -then in La Granja palace and now in the Prado- after an original by Praxiteles. In the background several companions carry a drunken Silenus.

Adrianssen, Alexander Van

Although Alexander Adriaenssen cannot be regarded as a “super specialist” in fish still lifes since he also represented fruit, flowers and game, he did paint more images of fish than his Antwerp counterparts. A considerable proportion of the more than two hundred works currently attributed to him are either pure fish pieces or still lifes where he combined fish with other subjects. Born at Antwerp

The Triumph of Death
Oil on panel. 1562 - 1563
Bruegel The Elder, Pieter

In this moral work, the triumph of Death over mundane things is symbolized by a large army of skeletons razing the Earth. The background is a barren landscape in which scenes of destruction are still taking place. In the foreground, Death leads his armies from his reddish horse, destroying the world of the living. The latter are led to an enormous coffin with no hope for salvation. All of the soci

Alenza, Leonardo

A group of people surround a standing man who gesticulates, appearing to tell a story. Alenza painted numerous small-format scenes of customs depicting the least-advantaged social classes. As in this work, they reveal the influence of Goya, and of works in the Prado by David Teniers (1610 - 1690).

Some peasants dance to the sound of a bagpiper in front of a house in what is one of many examples of genre scenes painted by this artist. Teniers based this work on the esthetics and certain compositional schemes by Jan Brueghel “the Elder” (1568-1625), repeating the same idyllic vision of peasant life, which was also omnipresent in Flemish literature at that time. Some of the charact

Practically unknown until now, the present canvas has only been mentioned and reproduced in an article by Matías Díaz Padrón, former curator at the Prado, that was published in Archivo Español de Arte in 1980. The author, who had not seen the painting at first hand, attributed it to Pieter Brueghel the Younger.The canvas depicts the Saint Martin`s Day wine festival. The

Meléndez, Luis Egidio

A compendium of common motifs in Meléndez´s oeuvre is found in this painting, affording it a sense of proximity and trueness to life of great artistic and documentary value. Set out among plums and figs on the characteristic wooden tabletop with visible grains and knots are a loaf of bread and a typical Talavera or Puente del Arzobispo wedding jug in white with an ochre-yellow antimon
