The Sense of Hearing
Oil on panel. 1617 - 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

Teniers The Younger, David

This work is part of the series of six panels of monkey scenes in the Museo Nacional del Prado (from P01805 to P01810). The subject matter has been associated with human foolishness since the Middle Ages and is drawn from the oeuvre of Pieter Brueghel the Elder and Peter van der Borcht. Teniers successfully captures the ambivalence of mankind in its animal nature. The teacher is punishing one of i

Koninck, Salomon

This painting enters the Museum as the work of Salomon Koninck, an attribution which remains valid until the 1963 catalogue, when, according to Valdivieso (1973), a proposal by Clotilde Brière-Misme and Horst Gerson cause it to be attributed to Abraham van den Hecken (active 1635-1655).However, despite the harsh modelling of the facial features, the compositional arrangement and, above all,

Knight with a Clock
Oil on canvas. Ca. 1550
Titian (Tiziano Vecellio)

The unknown subject of this portrait has been identified, inconclusively, as either Gianello della Torre, a clockmaker at the Spanish court, or some member of the Cuccini family. Whether or not the figure is a Knight of Malta has been questioned due to supposed anomalies in the cross sewn onto his clothing, despite the fact that it is an enhanced octagonal cross of the Order of Malta, made of whit

Ferdinand IV, King of Hungary (1647) and King of the Romans (1653). This portrait, together with that of Mariana of Austria (P 2871), could have been part of a shipment made by the Empress Maria Anna to the Spanish court. Its protagonists would be the children of María Anna and Ferdinand III, Holy Roman Emperor, with about six and five years old, a moment in which children begin to wear adu
