God Bids Us Forgive!
Oil on canvas. 1895
García Sampedro, Luis

Taking its cue from serialised fiction, the work narrates the return to her father’s home of a girl and her daughter, the fruit of an extra-marital relationship. Kneeling, she implores clemency from her father, whose anger is placated by a priest who reminds him of the duty to forgive. The emotional strength of the painting won it an award at the 1895 National Exhibition, whose jury chose to ignor

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

Oil on canvas. 1866
Fortuny, Mariano

In this work, Fortuny establishes an eloquent link between painting and music and a clear exposition of what his friend, the Baron Davillier, called his very lively and very pure taste in music. Fortuny depicts one of the musical evenings that he attended in Madrid during the summer of 1866 at his friend and former classmate, Catalan painter Francisco Sans y Cabot’s studio at no. 13, calle Flor Ba

Martínez del Mazo, Juan Bautista

Baltasar Carlos (1629-1646) was the son of Philip IV and the heir to the throne. He is depicted here shortly before his early death in an image that adheres to the type devised by Velázquez for his early court portraits such as that of the Infante Don Carlos (P1188). As in that work, the sitter here wears a dark suit and holds his glove in a particularly elegant manner.

Sequeira (1738-1816) was a celebrated doctor who numbered Gainsborough among his patients. Born into a Jewish family in Lisbon, he moved to Bordeaux, studied in Leyden and eventually settled in London where he practised his profession. Gainsborough follows Van Dyck’s interest in capturing the character of the sitter and conveys Sequeira’s refined character. He presents him in a dignified pose with

The Toilette
Oil on canvas. 1899
Godoy Castro, Federico

Unlike most of the toilettes painted by modernist artists, this one stands out for its domestic focus and its realist language. Despite the light-filled room’s appearance of cosy intimacy, Godoy’s work contains a veiled critique of the mother, who is neglecting her children and her untidy home while she combs her hair absent-mindedly in front of a mirror. The work forms part of the nineteenth-cent

According to Reynolds’ notes, the sitter posed for him in October 1765 and the portrait was completed in January 1766.

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

Judith at the Banquet of Holofernes
Oil on canvas. 1634
Rembrandt (Rembrandt Harmensz. Van Rijn)

In the past various authors have expressed their scepticism about the attribution of the painting to Rembrandt. However, the Rembrandt Research Project includes it in the Corpus of 1986 as an original work, and this is supported by the technical study conducted at the Museo del Prado that year. As for the signature, the unsteadiness of the stroke and, above all, the yellow colour make it dubious.
