The Recapture of Saint Christopher
Oil on canvas. 1634 - 1635
Castello, Félix

The island of Saint Christopher (modern-day Saint Kitts) in the Lesser Antilles was invaded by the English and French and recaptured by Spanish forces in 1629. The Spanish expedition was led by Fadrique de Toledo y Osorio, I Marquis of Villanueva de Valdueza and Captain General of the Ocean Fleet. He was accompanied by Fleet General Martín de Vallecilla and Admiral Antonio de Oquendo. After

Federico Gonzaga, Ist Duke of Mantua
Oil on panel. 1529
Titian (Tiziano Vecellio)

On 16 April 1529 Federico II Gonzaga, First Duke of Mantua (1500-1540), apologised to his uncle Alfonso d’Este for retaining Titian: perché ha conienzo un retratto mio qual molto desidero sii finito (because he has started a portrait of me which I greatly desire to be finished). In 1530 a second portrait of Federico in armour is also recorded. Typologically and conceptually, the present por

The Victory at Fleurus
Oil on canvas. 1634
Carducho, Vicente

This painting depicts the battle of Fleurus, near Brussels, which pitted troops from the Catholic League commanded by General Gonzalo Fernández de Córdoba against Protestant Union soldiers led by Count Ernst von Mansfeld and Prince Christian of Brunswick. The Catholic League’s victory on August 29, 1622 freed Brussels—governed at that time by Isabel Clara Eugenia—from the threat pose

An Artillery General
Oil on canvas. Ca. 1660
Rizi, Francisco

The baton in the sitter’s right hand and the cannon indicate that he is an artillery general, while the insignia hanging from his neck denotes his membership of the Order of Calatrava. Stylistically this canvas is clearly indebted to the work of Anthony van Dyck (1599-1641).

The scene depicts a battle waged off the coast between two Dutch and two English ships. Several people watch from the small rocks in the immediate foreground. The scene is framed on the right by a cliff topped with buildings.The compositional scheme and spatial arrangement based on parallel planes of colour that extend towards the background-brown, green and the pale blue of the sky- place the wor

The painting may illustrate an episode from the Anglo-Dutch wars. Its condition makes it difficult to ascertain its authorship. The handling and arrangement of the clouds point to a late date, around 1660-70. Jan Kelch attributes it to the circle of Reinier Nooms, known as Zeeman (1623/24-1664). However, Sabine Craft-Giepmans and Marijke van Kinkelder argue that the handling of space and the manne

The Sense of Touch
Oil on panel. 1618
Rubens, Peter Paul; Brueghel The Elder, Jan (Jan 'velvet' Brueghel)

This set of paintings on the five senses (Sight, Hearing, Smell, Taste, Touch) was one of the most successful collaborations of Peter Paul Rubens and Jan Brueghel “the Elder”. Rubens placed his figures in the magnificent courtly scenes created by Brueghel as settings for these allegories of the senses, resulting in a series of enormous quality and esthetic appeal. The subject was widely employed i

That defense was led by don Fernando Girón y Ponce de León, a veteran of the Flanders campaigns and a military advisor who had been appointed governor by the king after he offered h

Oil on canvas. 1634
Carducho, Vicente

Bernardo Monanni, Secretary of the Florentine Embassy in Madrid, called this painting The Relief of the Three Cities on the Rhine by the Duke of Feria. He was undoubtedly influenced by the inscription on the lower right corner, which mentions not only Rheinfelden, but also three other neighboring cities: Waldzut, Sechim (Säckingen) and Laufenburg. The duke appears in the foreground, standing

Vroom, Hendrick Cornelisz

This painting was listed in the Museum catalogues as an anonymous work from the Dutch school until 1920, although from 1885 onwards it was noted that Bredius ascribes it to Aert Anthonisz. van Antum (ca. 1579/80-1620). The attribution was adopted from the 1936 catalogue onwards. However, Vroom`s signature is perceptible beneath the repainted flag bearing the Burgundy cross which covers the origina

Battle of Gibraltar, 25 April 1607

Willaerts, Adam

The arrangement of the composition into parallel planes of colour and the overall stillness of the scene are consonant with Flemish Mannerist landscape painting, which employed a structure of parallel bands of colour. Willaerts continued to use this contrived scheme until well into the seventeenth century, even after it became outdated as a result of the new naturalist trend that swept through Dut

This work, together with Aeolus (P001716), is mentioned in the Zarzuela Palace (inventario de la Testamentaría de Carlos II [inventory of the Testament of Charles II], 1701–3) as ‘two frameless paintings, one and a half vara high, of the elements of fire and air’. Curiously, Ponz, in his Viage when recounting his experience in the Capuchin convent of El Pardo in Madrid near the Manzanares r

The Company for the engraving of the paintings from the Royal Palaces was one of the Spanish Enlightenment’s major undertakings during the second half of the 18th century.

This tabletop belonged to Rodrigo Calderon, secretary to Philip III, who seems to have acquired it by somewhat unethical means. Its decoration of military motifs suggests that it is related to the victory at Lepanto. After Calderon´s death in 1621 it was acquired by Philip IV at the posthumous sale of his possessions. The table is supported by four bronze lions, three of them commissioned by Velaz
