The Surgeon, or The Extraction of the Stone of Madness

The Surgeon, or The Extraction of the Stone of Madness
Oil on panel. 1550 - 1555
Hemessen, Jan Sanders Van

A surgeon extracts a stone from a patient´s head. The scene takes place in an urban setting, probably a market. An aged helper holds the patient´s head, along with a youth, who prepares the unguents. Meanwhile, another patient grimaces grotesquely while waiting his turn. Hemessen criticizes the defrauding of patients by depicting the doctor with a sarcastic expression that reveals him as an impost

The Miraculous Spring at Saint Bruno’s Tomb
Oil on canvas. 1626 - 1632
Carducho, Vicente

On August 29, 1626, King Philip IV’s painter, Vicente Carducho (ca. 1576-1638), signed a contract for the creation of a cycle of paintings to celebrate the founding of the Carthusian Order by Saint Bruno and its leading members. This colossal undertaking sought to visually narrate numerous episodes from the Carthusians’ history and tradition. It was the most complete commission ever dedicated to t

The Extraction of the Stone of Madness
Oil on oak panel. 1501 - 1505
Bosch, Hieronymus

In the centre of a rectangular surface Bosch incised a circle in which he depicted this scene of Extracting the stone of madness. The resulting image is a mirror that offers a reflection of folly and human madness, located in a rural world remote from that of the nobility and urban life, hence the setting in the countryside in an open landscape. As found in miniature painting of the time, the arti

Two banderoles, one above and the other below the central circle, contain Latin texts from Deuteronomy (32: 28-29 and 20), warning against the wages of sin. The upper banderole, between the tondos of Death and the Last Judgment, reads: Gens absq[ue] [con]silio e[st] et sine prudentia // deutro[m]y 32 [um//] utina[m] sapere[n]t [et] i[n]telligere[n]t ac novissi[m]a p[ro]videre[n]t (For they are a n

Triptych of the Adoration of the Magi
Grisaille, Oil on oak panel. Ca. 1494
Bosch, Hieronymus

The theme of this triptych is the advent of salvation -a message about the universality of Redemption. The Eucharistic meaning inherent in the theme of Saint Gregory’s Mass is also found in The Adoration of the Magi in the wheat stored in the upper part of the hut, above the figure of the Antichrist. Unusually, Bosch includes in his depiction of the Mass of Saint Gregory in semi-grisaille seven Pa

The Temptations of Saint Anthony Abbot
Oil on panel. 1543 - 1550
Coecke Van Aelst, Pieter

Saint Anthony is tempted by the Devil, transformed into a beautiful naked woman accompanied by a witch. The burning city in the background, the monsters and other elements are derived from Bosch (c. 1450-1516). However, the figures of Saint Anthony, the witch and particularly the female nude reveal Van Aelst’s assimilation of the new Italian Renaissance idiom.

The Haywain Triptych
Oil on panel. 1512 - 1515
Bosch, Hieronymus

Bosch thus shows how man, irrespective of his social class or place of origin, is so possessed by the desire to enjoy and acquire material possessions that he allows himself to be deceived or seduced by the Devil. Thus the artist proposes that we should renounce earthly goods and the delights of the senses in order to avoid eternal damnation. The painting offers an exemplum of a different type to

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

This canvas and its companion, Taste, Hearing and Touch (P1404), represent the five senses embodied by female figures in palatial interiors. The sense of smell is conveyed by a woman holding flowers, while Sight contemplates herself in a mirror held by a cherub. They are located in a hall filled with paintings and sculptures, a sort of cabinet of paintings that could reflect an idealized represent

Taste, Hearing and Touch
Oil on unlined canvas. Ca. 1620
Brueghel The Elder, Jan (Jan 'velvet' Brueghel)

The dinner guests occupying the center of the composition symbolize the senses. Music and the singing children are hearing, and the young woman petting a mink is touch. The young woman preparing to eat some oysters symbolizes taste, while the monkey pulling on a cupid´s hair also symbolizes touch. Of equal significance are the animals and paintings in the room. The Annunciation on the top of the c

Saint Anthony, whom the artist has been able to place in the immediate foreground of this panel by using a landscape format, closely resembles the saint depicted in the Saint Anthony triptych in Lisbon; he is wearing the same habit, the distinctive cape bearing the Tau cross and the customary rosary with a little bell. This large-scale figure, occupying most of the available space on the left of t

Massys, Quinten; Patinir, Joachim

The format and the dimensions of this picture and the high horizon line allow for rendition of a large landscape, which displays what are generally regarded as the defining characteristics of Patinir`s style. Like the Rest on the Flight into Egypt (P1611), the foreground figures are shown on top of a hill in a scale suited to the proportions of the panel. On the much lower level of the middle grou

The Triumph of Death
Oil on panel. 1562 - 1563
Bruegel The Elder, Pieter

In this moral work, the triumph of Death over mundane things is symbolized by a large army of skeletons razing the Earth. The background is a barren landscape in which scenes of destruction are still taking place. In the foreground, Death leads his armies from his reddish horse, destroying the world of the living. The latter are led to an enormous coffin with no hope for salvation. All of the soci

Practically unknown until now, the present canvas has only been mentioned and reproduced in an article by Matías Díaz Padrón, former curator at the Prado, that was published in Archivo Español de Arte in 1980. The author, who had not seen the painting at first hand, attributed it to Pieter Brueghel the Younger.The canvas depicts the Saint Martin`s Day wine festival. The

A model similar to this one appears in the Crown of Thorns at the Royal Museum of Fine Arts in Antwerp, specifically, the figure who is supposed to place the crown of thorns on Christ´s head. The figure in the present work differs from it in the presence of a silver shell on his hat and a crossbow-shaped broach on his suit. Recent studies consider it a copy made during the second half of the sixte

After Bosch’s death, his style remained very successful both in the Netherlands and in Italy and Spain. This picture, painted nearly half a century after his death, is an example of the many that were produced in imitation of his style. In this case, the scene is inspired by the representation of Hell in The Garden of Earthly Delights, which also belongs to the Prado.
