The Eucharistic Christ
Oil on panel. 1520 - 1530
Yáñez de la Almedina, Fernando

The composition derives from a lost work by Leonardo repeated by Yáñez on two other occasions with some variants. Here he includes a chalice and a consecrated Host, a Eucharistic reference that enjoyed a lengthy tradition in Spanish and particularly Valencian art. The emphasis on anatomical definition, subtle colour and a unifying light are characteristic of the artist at this period

The High Priest Aaron
Oil on panel. 1545 - 1550
Juanes, Juan de (Vicente Juan Masip)

Taken together, these three works clearly convey a Eucharistic meaning. They depict Christ holding up the chalice and the Host (P00844), flanked by two Old Testament figures: King Melchizedek, bearing bread and wine (P00853), and the priest Aaron with a jar of incense (P00854). The three panels were part of the tabernacle of the high altar in the church of the Birth of the Virgin in Fuente de la H

The Triumph of the Eucharist over Idolatry
Oil on panel. Ca. 1625
Rubens, Peter Paul

In 1625, Archduchess Isabel Clara Eugenia commissioned Rubens to design a series of twenty tapestries for the Monastery of the Descalzas Reales in Madrid. The subject was the Eucharist, a leading Catholic dogma that the infanta defended in her role as sovereign princess of the southern Netherlands. Rubens conceived the scenes like victory marches, as if the cloths were hanging from baroque archite

Saint John the Evangelist with Two Ladies and Two Girls / Saint Hadrian
Oil on panel. 1532
Coecke Van Aelst, Pieter

The Evangelist, identified by the chalice he holds in his hand, protects four female donors dressed in plain devotional habits. In the background, Coecke provides a vision of Hell that reflects the strong influence of Hieronymus Bosch. This is the right panel of the Triptych of the Last Judgement; the central panel is at the Escorial, whilst the left panel is in the Prado (P1609).

The Last Supper
Oil on panel. 1555 - 1562
Juanes, Juan de (Vicente Juan Masip)

Painted for the base of the main altarpiece of San Esteban in Valencia (P00838, P00839, P00840, P00841 and P00842), Inspired by Leonardo, both in the definition of the space and in the eloquent expressiveness of the apostles, it also shows Juanes’s close relationship with Raphael. In keeping with traditional iconography in Spain, he focussed the scene on Jesus, serene and triumphant at the moment

Saint John the Evangelist

This is one of a series of twelve panels (P01646, P01647, P01648, P01649, P01650, P01651, P01652, P01653, P01654, P01655, P01656, P01657) that make up an apostolate that originally included a Savior of the World. The disciples of Christ are represented in the style the painter used around 1612-1613. These are large figures of forceful appearance and considerable plasticity, contrasting with the da

On his throne, wearing a red tunic and holding the globe of the World in his left hand, Christ offers his blessing with his right. He is flanked by figures representing the Church and the Synagogue and surrounded by the Tetramorph. Christ is presented as the Savior of the world in this work that contrasts the figure of the Synagogue, with Moses’s tablets and a torn banner; and the figure of the Ch

Agony in the Garden

Macip Comes, Vicente Juan; Juanes, Juan de (Vicente Juan Masip)

Christ kneels with his arms raised, looking to the heavens where a angel holds attributes of his passion: a chalice and a cross. The sleeping apostles appear in the middle ground, behind Christ to the left. This work passed from the Royal Collection to the Museo del Prado with an attribution to Juan de Juanes. In 1920, Tormo´s opinion prevailed and it was correctly cataloged as a work by his

A high surface acts as a sort of altar bearing an image of the Virgin and Child with Saint Joseph behind them. Saint John the Evangelist and Saint Ildephonsus stand at a lower level in front, flanking clergyman and writer Alonso de Villegas, who is presented in a three-quarters view. His devout posture, with hands joined at chest level and a serene, withdrawn expression as he contemplates Mary and

En medio de un paisaje pedregoso y bajo la amenaza de un cielo de tormenta, san Juan Evangelista y san Juan Bautista se presentan en primer término y en actitud de dialogar. Cada uno aparece con la indumentaria y los atributos de su iconografía tradicional: el Evangelista es un joven imberbe que se cubre con túnica azul y un amplio manto rosáceo; bendice el cáliz del que brota un dragoncillo, refe

Charles II, King of Spain, on Horseback
Oil on canvas. Ca. 1693
Giordano, Luca

Luca Giordano (1634-1705) made an equestrian portrait of Charles II for the Hall of Mirrors at Madrid’s Alcázar palace to emphasize the dynastic continuum in which Charles II constituted the latest link in a chain that had begun with Titian’s portrait of Charles V: Charles V at Mühlberg. The loss of Titian’s work in the fire that ravaged the Alcázar in 1734 makes it impossible t

Carracci, Ludovico

The Apostles sleep in the foreground, indifferent to the suffering of Christ who is attended by angels. One holds a chalice, prefiguring the Passion. The artist looked to Correggio (c. 1489-1534) in the treatment of the figures and folds of the drapery, which have details characteristic of a miniature. The canvas was in the Roman collection of the painter Carlo Maratta (1625-1713) and was acquired

In keeping with the Gospel according to Saint Luke (22: 39-46), Christ, far from the disciples, kneels down with his hands separated and prays to the Father to take away the cup of suffering he must drink, represented by the chalice on the rock. The three apostles who accompany him, Peter, John and James, are asleep. The painting comes from the main altar piece of the church of San Lázaro i
