Learning by Heart
Oil on canvas. 1898
Pinazo Camarlench, Ignacio

A portrait of Ignacio, the artist´s youngest son and one of his favorite models, shown here at the age of eleven. The profusion of child portraits by Pinazo is based on his capacity to capture the freshness and spontaneity of children´s acts, making works of great intimacy and closeness. This portrait may be one of the painter´s finest and it reveals his most personal characteristics. The dark ton

Female Nude
Oil on canvas. 1902
Pinazo Camarlench, Ignacio

The nude young woman sits on a white cloth with which she covers her lap. The artist paints her in profile and avoids showing her face. This is one of many nude studies made by this artist, and it may well be the most lauded of them all. Several of its characteristic aspects have been praised for their exquisite mastery, including the rich palette —especially the greens, which vary rhythmically— t

In addition to his remarkable artistic ability, his female portraits are outstanding for their depiction of the accessories and adornments. These details are emphasis

Fearing she was a victim of infidelity, Procris followed her beloved Cephalus to a clearing in the woods, where he was resting during a hunting expedition. The young woman´s jealousy led her to her death when Cephalus mistook her for wild game and shot her with an arrow. Rubens chose to depict that story from Ovid´s Metamorphoses in this preparatory sketch for a painting intended to decorate the T

But when Philomela weaves a tapestry, her sister Procne discovers the atrocious event. In vengeance, she kills Tereus´ son, serving it to him in a macabre banquet. The story is based on Ovid´s Metamorphoses (Book VI). Rubens chose to depict the exact moment when,

Oil on canvas. Ca. 1862
Rosales Gallinas, Eduardo

A young peasant girl from the Lazio flirts with her hands, dressed in traditional costume and leaning on a wall. The picturesque type of Italian country girl known as a ciociara was an extremely popular subject among European painters travelling in Italy at this period. Located in a setting skilfully constructed through the use of a low-level light, Rosales sketches out the figure using broad brus

Lot and his Daughters
Oil on canvas. Ca. 1634
Furini, Francesco

An outstanding work in Francesco Furini’s oeuvre and one of the most sensual and morbid of all Italian Baroque paintings, Lot and his daughters, c.1634, depicts the Old Testament story of Lot (Genesis 19:30-38), who escaped the destruction of Sodom thanks to a warning from the angels charged with its obliteration. Lot’s wife, who failed to obey their order not to look back, was turned into a pilla

This work was one of a large group of landscapes commissioned in Rome by agents of Philip IV to decorate the new Buen Retiro Palace in Madrid.

This is a preparatory sketch for the painting that adorns one of the altars at the Sacristy of Toledo Cathedral. Here, Goya´s manner of working is visible: rapid and energetic brushstrokes creat

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 Virgin Mary holds the Christ Child, flanked on the right by an angel and, on the left, by Saint Matthew. The landscape in the background shows a scene from the Apocrypha (Proto-Gospel of Saint James): Saint Elisabeth and Saint John the Baptist fleeing from the Slaughter of the Innocents. The presence of Saint Matthew in this composition is explained by the fact the it was commissioned by a ban

Three Strolling Musicians
Oil on panel. 1645 - 1650
Jordaens, Jacques

A bust depiction of three street musicians. The first plays a flute while the other two sing from sheet music held by one of them. The sketchy rendering and vigorous brushstrokes mark this as a preliminary study. However, as no known work of Jordaens uses similar figures, his authorship has long been in doubt. The very loose rendering and large amount of paint in the brushstrokes of the flesh tone

Bosch, Hieronymus (Workshop Of)

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

In this half-length portrait, the lady is wearing a dark brown velvet overdress luxuriously ornamented with gold chain-stitched embroidery, slit sleeves, and a high collar open in front in the Flemish style. This is a notable example of Spanish portraiture during the reign of Philip II. To begin with, it is painted on a finegrained reddish tropical wood, mahogany perhaps, a support that was quite

Oil on canvas. 1846
Madrazo y Kuntz, Federico de

This portrait of the wife of the banker Henry O’Shea reveals the British influence on Madrazo’s fully romantic period. Her social position is indicated by the quality of the fabrics, laces and jewels, and by the elegant arrangement of the hands. The books allude to the culture of this lady, who was a friend to the writer Washington Irving.
