Diogenes searching for a Man
Oil on canvas. 1645 - 1655

The Siege of Aire-sur-la-Lys
Oil on canvas. 1653
Snayers, Peter

As court painter to the Cardinal-Infante Ferdinand, Snayers’s compositions both document and glorify Spanish military activities. This painting represents the capture of Aire-sur-la-Lys from the French troops by the Cardinal-Infante’s army in 1641. The topographical landscape in the background and the genre episodes in the foreground are influenced by Jacques Callot’s etching The Siege of Breda.

Oil on panel. 1635
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,

Fortuny, Mariano

This watercolor offers a profile view -similar to a low relief- of a child or young faun sitting on a fragment of an Ionic entablature with egg-and-dart decorations above an astragal. The slender, nude child recalls the Italian boys who worked as models in academies and were depicted by European painters and sculptors. At the academies where he studied, Fortuny had drawn numerous nude boys, some p
