Saint James the Greater
Oil on canvas. 1631
Ribera, Jusepe de, lo Spagnoletto

This work was, until recently, believed to depict Saint James. This was largely due to its description, by Friar Francisco de los Santos in his Descripción breve del Monasterio de S. Lorenzo el Real del Escorial (1657). However, Friar Francisco de los Santos also noted that the apostle is not represented according to customary iconography, for he is depicted in the manner he would have dres

Pandora (?)
Pencil, Grey-brown wash on laid paper. Second half of the XVIII century
Paret y Alcázar, Luis

La composición del dibujo se enmarca en un óvalo. En él se representa en pie a Pandora, apoyada en una caja de forma de urna con la llave en la mano derecha, con la cabeza doblada, pensativa, sobre la mano izquierda. A sus pies, un perro y un amorcillo con una antorcha hacia abajo, apagándola. Iconográficamente se relaciona estrechamente con otro dibujo de la Biblioteca Nacional inscrito también e

The Banquet of Herod
Pencil, Pencil ground, Grey-brown ink, Wash on paper. Early Finales del siglo XVI - XVII century
Maganza, Alessandro

Maganza´s work belongs to the mainstream of painting in the Veneto during the last years of the sixteenth century and the first decades of the seventeenth. His drawings, especially, reveal the influence of both Antonio Zelotti (1526-1578) and, more importantly, Hans Rottenhammer (1564/65-1625), the German-born painter who established a studio in Venice shortly before 1600, where he resided f

Pencil, Pencil ground, Grey-brown ink, Wash on yellow paper. 1570 - 1579
Zuccaro, Federico

Gabriele Finaldi was the first to point out that the seated pope seems to be Pius V (Ghislieri), the Dominican, pro-Spanish pontiff who reigned from 1566 to 1572. As Cardinal Ghislieri, he held the office of grand inquisitor under the two previous pontiffs, Paul IV and Pius IV. Comparison of the visage and physique of the pope in the drawing with those in the many surviving portraits of Pius V sho

This is the companion to the drawing D01646. The execution of the hands and hair is especially characteristic of Ludovico Carracci´s style.

Preparatorio para el grupo principal del lienzo pintado en 1634 para el Salón de Reinos del Buen Retiro, hoy en el Museo del Prado (P00858). Los dos generales a caballo son Ambrosio Spínola y Felipe Messia de Guzmán, marqués de Leganés. La presencia del primero ha hecho que en alguna ocasión se interpretase lienzo y dibujo como representación de la Rendición de Breda, por aquel general. (Texto ext

Carracci, Annibale

Annibale Carracci established the early Baroque style in Italy with Caravaggio (1571-1610). Annibale`s naturalistic style was based on the Antique and on Raphael, and unlike Caravaggio`s sombre realism, continued the representational tradition of the Italian Renaissance. Annibale`s style evolved in Bologna, where he worked together with his brother Agostino (1557-1602) and their cousin Ludovico. I

Dibujo que presenta en escena la Sagrada Familia, con las figuras de medio cuerpo, apoyadas en el alfeizar de una ventana y detrás un fondo de cortinajes. La obra es por la sequedad de los trazos y la blandura de las sombras copia y no original. Este último se encuentra en la Academia de San Fernando de Madrid y corresponde al estilo de Maratti en la década de 1690, como atestigua la inscripción d

Sentada sobre una nube, con las manos sobre el pecho y coronada de estrellas, aplasta con el pie derecho la serpiente que se enrosca junto al creciente de la luna. A su derecha un angel mancebo y otros, niños, a su alrededor. Quizá pudiera relacionarse con el cuadro de este asunto, pintado en 1772 sobre cobre, juntamente con otros dos (San José y San Carlos), para el oratorio del infante don Carlo

The figure appears to derive from the circle of the Florentine Mannierist, Francesco Salviati (c. 1520-c. 1575), rather than from the School of Raphael. Especially redolent of Salviati´s invention is the treatment of the decoration of the urn, lower right.

El dibujo representa a Cristo sentado en el centro y a ambos lados dos sayones que le colocan la corona de espinas mientras que al fondo dos personajes asisten a la escena. No es aceptable la antigua atribución del dibujo a Daniele Crespi, ya que no coincide en absoluto con su estilo. Esta más cerca de los maestros boloñeses de fines del s. XVI y principios del XVII, y tiene evidentes analogías co

Bertoia

Carderera probably accepted the old attribution to the Pellegrino Tibaldi (1527-1596), who had spent almost a decade in Spain at the end of his life, mostly working at El Escorial, and was an important influence on Late Mannerism in Spain. The attribution to Bertoia is here proposed on stylistic grounds. A particularly striking comparison may be made between the present drawing and Bertoia´s pen-a

Balducci, Giovanni

This attractive compositional study is typical of Balducci´s style of drawing from the 1580s, the period of the artist´s early maturity. The pictorial effect is enhanced by the hot, brick-red ground, a paler tint of which was often used by Florentine artists as a preparation for drawing from as far back as the late fifteenth century and was used by such artists as Leonardo da Vinci (1452-1519), Fr

This is one of the few copies to survive showing the whole of Polidoro´s famous frieze with the Story of Niobe, painted below the windows of the first floor of the Palazzo Milesi, Via della Maschera d´Oro, Rome. The decoration of the façade of the Palazzo Milesi in 1526-27 is the last in Polidoro´s great sequence of palace façade decorations carried out in Rome in the first half of t

In a nineteenth-century inscription and in further annotations on the reverse, the drawing is given to the Sienese Domenico Beccafumi (1484-1551). In 1980, in a pencil note on the mount, Anna Forlani rightly pointed out that it is near to Vasari. However, the feeble execution points to a copy rather than to an original by the master.
