The Painter's Family
Oil on canvas. 1621 - 1622
Jordaens, Jacques

This attractive group portrait, one of the most interesting of the 17th-century Dutch school on account of its bourgeois spirit with aristocratic leanings, is an extraordinary skilful depiction of the artist´s close family. Jordaens portrays himself with his wife Catharina van Noort and their first child Elizabeth, born on 26 June 1617, whose age allows us to date the work approximately. Cat

A Larder
Oil on canvas. Before 1636
Snyders, Frans

Snyders invented a type of scene of domestic interiors in which animals are the principal protagonists. Here a dog which has entered a larder and taken a large piece of meat is looking defiantly at another one chewing a string of sausages. The overturned basket of fruit and the broken china indicate the damage caused by their violence.

Virgin and Child
Oil on canvas. Mid-XVIIcentury
Arias Fernández, Antonio

The shaft of a column and a curtain behind the figures define the indoor setting for a scene whose intimate familiarity is based on its naturalist resolution and the degree of realism with which both the figures and the sewing basket are depicted. The painter places this works narrative elements in the immediate foreground, reaching the edges of the canvas, with a high viewpoint that may reflect i

The Martyrdom of Saint Menas
Oil on canvas. Ca. 1580
Veronese, Paolo (Paolo Cagliari)

Saint Mena extends his arms and raises his gaze to Heaven, refusing to worship the graven idol presented to him at the left of the composition. As a result, he was martyred and decapitated. His suffering occurred in the year 296, under the rule of Diocletian. It is indicated here by the sword held by the person who has seized the saint, and by the pliers in the basket, which were used to pull out

Rest on the Flight into Egypt
Oil on panel. 1518 - 1520
Patinir, Joachim

The Virgin and Child are placed on a hill in the centre of the foreground, isolated from the rest of the figures, as in the Berlin panel (Gemäldegalerie ). The dark forest here begins in the middle ground behind the Virgin, merging with the background landscape to one side of the main figure. The countryside to the right, with the motifs of the farm, the village in the middle ground and the c

The Last Supper
Oil on canvas. Ca. 1794
Maella, Mariano Salvador

Preparatory sketch for a work possibly intended for the private chapel of the Infante Don Antonio Pascual in the Royal Palace of Aranjuez. The composition is very similar to the Last Supper in the Royal Palace of Madrid painted by Maella in 1794.

The Adoration of the Shepherds
Oil on panel. 1625
Wtewael, Joachim

This Adoration of the Shepherds, signed and dated 1625, was executed in the final stage in Wtewael`s career. The intellectual approach to the scene (St Luke 2:15-18), which derives its emotive force from the refined rhythm of contrasting movements and lights, underlines the painter`s faithfulness to the Mannerist aesthetic he learned during his youth in Italy and France.The compositional structure

Table
Oil on canvas. 1636 - 1650
Benedetti, Andries

On a table partially covered by a green tablecloth, the painter has placed a white cloth, delicate gold-worked jars and glasses that reflect the light, a dish with ham, bread and a large basket of peaches and several types of grapes. There is also a half-peeled lemon, typical of Nordic still-lifes. In the background, there is a large red curtain and a gallery with columns. Charged with symbolic an

Cats fighting in a Larder
Oil on canvas. 1630 - 1640
Vos, Paul de

With the owners or house servants away, the animals sneak into the larder, giving free rein to their instincts. This leads to a fight. Scenes of animal fights in domestic settings were customary in mid-seventeenth-century Flemish painting. They were also frequent in the literature of proverbs, where they were interpreted as moral allusions to the abandonment of responsibilities and their consequen

The Venetian Charlatan
Oil on canvas. Ca. 1765
Tiepolo, Giovanni Domenico

These two paintings (P7804 and P7805) are part of a series on similar subjects, yet they stand out among Giandomenico`s work. These works are small depictions of everyday life in Venice, exquisitely rendered with a very agile touch that reflects the technical skills Giandomenico learnt from his father. This genre work is infrequent in Giandomenico`s oeuvre. In Spain the only known works of this so

Goya y Lucientes, Francisco de

This tapestry cartoon represents a popular scene of Majos and Majas on the banks of Madrid´s Manzanares River. The Hermitage of the Virgin of the Port is just visible behind a group of trees on the right. Worthy of mention in this work are the still life in the foreground and the amorous play among the orange-seller and the Majos. The resultant tapestry was intended to hang in the dining roo

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

Still Life with Fruit and Vegetables
Oil on canvas. 1625
Hamen y León, Juan Van Der

Juan van der Hamen y León attained notable fame as a painter of still lifes in the court in Madrid. His early death in 1631 explains the concentration of his works from the 1620s, a brief period that nevertheless offers an interesting evolution in the typologies of his paintings, suggesting that he was open to incorporating aspects of other artists´ work. Still life with fruits and vegetabl

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.

The Worship of Venus
Oil on canvas. 1518
Titian (Tiziano Vecellio)

Titian´s first contribution to the Camerino d´Alabastro was prompted by the death in October 1517 of Fra Bartolommeo from whom Alfonso d´Este had commissioned a Worship of Venus one year previously and for which Fra Bartolommeo submitted a sketch. In April 1518, Titian received instructions on the subject matter and format of the work along with a drawing, probably that by Fra Bartolommeo. In Octo
