Snyders, Frans

This opulent still-life scene typical of the Baroque Flemish school includes a human figure and two animals, as was common in the period, in accordance with the tastes of the clients, whose wealth and prosperity was also reflected in this genre of paintings. Snyders´ clientele were members of the nobility and haute bourgeoisie who were interested in his paintings as testimonies to wealth as well a

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

The Virgin and Child with the Infant Saint John the Baptist
Oil on panel. Ca. 1570
Morales, Luis de

Morales here presents us with one of his most successful and heartwarming subjects, that of the Virgin and Child, although he also includes in this case the figure of the infant St John the Baptist, who looks out at the viewer with his blue eyes and, with a Harpocratic gesture, asks for silence so that Jesus’s sleep will not be disturbed. Illuminated by a strong light source, the scene stands out

Hamen y León, Juan Van Der

This magnificent painting once belonged to Diego Mexía Felípez de Guzmán, Marquis of Leganés, in whose collection it was inventoried in 1655. This collection of nearly 1300 paintings comprised works by some of the most important European painters of the time, including a great number of Flemish still lifes and genre paintings. Van der Hamen was represented by nine still

Still Life with a Plate of Cherries, Plums a Pitcher and Cheese
Oil on canvas. Ca. 1760
Meléndez, Luis Egidio

The first thing to catch the viewer’s eye is a splendid earthenware pitcher with a typical 18th-century tin-oxide white glaze and a Solomonic braided handle. The bright reflections of light on its curved surface contrast with the play of straight and curved lines that define the cheese resting beside it, and with the wavy-edged rococo plate in the immediate foreground, which overflows with cherrie

Balen, Hendrick Van; Brueghel The Elder, Jan (Jan 'velvet' Brueghel)

Two nymphs and numerous cupids hold a garland that frames a medallion where an offering to Ceres is depicted. The goddess of the Earth and of agriculture is shown being crowned by Spring while allegorical figures of the other seasons offer her their fruits. The cupids hold objects alluding to the signs of the Zodiac. Thus, the passage of time and the Earth´s life cycles are emphasized. This work i

Brueghel The Elder, Jan (Jan 'velvet' Brueghel); Clerck, Hendrik de

In this painting, Ceres, goddess of agriculture and fertility, is surrounded by fruits and flowers, pictured as the personification of Abundance holding the horn of plenty in her hands. The history of the horn of plenty is taken from two texts by the Roman poet Ovid (43 BCE-CE 17/18), Metamorphoses (IX, 80-100) and Book of Days (V, 121-24). The idea of prosperity is completed by the personificatio

Brueghel The Younger, Jan

This type of allegorical representations of abundance or fecundity was very popular among cabinet paintings from this period. Artists such as Rubens, Jan Brueghel the Elder, Hendrick de Clerck and Hendrick van Balen, among others, also made such works, often in collaboration. Here, fertility is represented by a six-breasted figure at the center of the composition. She bears a horn of plenty and is

Adriaen van Utrecht was a leading still-life painter in Antwerp, producing paintings characterised by their large size and opulent content, works that are also striking for their compositions and pictorial technique. Paintings of this type reflected the wealth and cosmopolitan culture of their owners.

Little is known regarding two artists called Catarina Ykens, both garland painters, and it is uncertain whether this painting is by Catarina Ykens I or Catarina Ykens II, to whom it is usually attributed. In either case, both were among the few women painters active in Early Modern Europe. Of the approximately 1,300 Flemish paintings in the Prado, only six were painted by women, four of them by Cl

These panels (P02838, P02839, P02840), along with a fourth one in a private collection, illustrate the Story of Nastagio degli Onesti, the eighth novel of the fifth day of Boccaccio´s Decameron. This is the story of Nastagio, a young man from Ravenna who was rejected by the daughter of Paolo Traversari and abandoned the city to settle on its outskirts. The third panel shows the guests´ reaction to

It has often been stated that this painting is part of a series of four, all now in the Prado, but that is probably not the case. The dimensions of all four paintings (P1619, P1620, P1621, P1622) are similar, but their provenance is not. This, and Table with Cloth, Salt Cellar, Gilt Standing Cup, Pie, Jug, Porcelain Plate with Olives and Cooked Fowl (P1622), are first documented when they were inv

Hiepes, Tomás

Recuperando una vez más modelos de otros artistas, Hiepes representa un tipo de bodegón muy esencial: un plato metálico que, apoyado sobre una mesa, muestra diferentes frutas. El recuerdo de obras de Juan van der Hamen, Zurbarán o Pedro Camprobín está latente en estas obras.

This triptych is by a northern painter who trained in the International Gothic style and was familiar with Netherlandish painting. The central panel depicts the Nativity; on the left are the Birth of the Virgin and the Assumption of the Virgin; and on the right the Presentation in the Temple and the Adoration of the Magi. On the reverse of the wing panels are Saint Anthony of Padua and Saint James

Jan Brueghel’s compositions with garlands surrounding holy figures were a reaction against Protestant ideas that refuted the cult of images. In the centre of the composition is a painted image of the Virgin, which hangs from the garland. The figures of Mary and the Christ Child were painted by Rubens.
