Pilgrimage of El Rocío
Oil on canvas. Ca. 1897
Viniegra y Lasso de la Vega, Salvador

In 1897, the artist exhibited Pilgrimage of El Rocío in the Sala Dante in Rome, as well as in the National Fine Arts Exhibition in Madrid that same year, before it was shown in the Munich and Vienna International Exhibitions one year later, where it was awarded several gold medals. This painting continued its international journey after being hired by a Polish businessman who exhibited it i

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

Triumph of Love
Oil on copperplate. XVII century
Lint, Pieter Van

Representación alegórica del triunfo del Amor que lleva a Júpiter con los brazos atados en una suntuosa carroza tirada por cuatro caballos blancos. Entre las figuras que acompañan a la carroza, a la derecha de la composición, aparece Apolo portando una cítara como atributo de identificación del dios, y tras él un músico tocando una flauta de Pan.

The Assumption and Coronation of the Virgin
Oil on panel. 1602 - 1603
Reni, Guido

En el centro, la Virgen coronada por dos angelitos, rodeada por la corte celestial. Abajo, ángeles músicos en las esquinas. El tema, para el cual se conocen algunos dibujos, fue muy trabajado por Guido en sus primeros años, con una cierta influencia de Aníbal Carracci en las formas torneadas de sus ángeles y en una monumentalidad grandiosa, que no es habitual en sus composiciones. Se conocen tres

Royal Couples
Oil on canvas. 1770
Paret y Alcázar, Luis

This canvas depicts an equestrian event that took place at the Palace of Aranjuez in 1770. It was attended by Charles III and Princess María Luisa, his daughter-in-law, who are to be seen in the second box adjoining the palace façade, and by a crowd of subtly individualised figures. On horseback at the forefront of the pairs of riders are Prince Carlos and the Infantes Gabriel and Lu

The Adoration of the Shepherds
Oil on panel. Ca. 1523
Pitati, Bonifazio Di

An independent painter since 1515, Pitati trained with Palma Vecchio whose late style he assimilated. This panel dates from his early period (1515-28) and reveals his knowledge of the work of Bellini, Giorgione and Titian. The compositional symmetry and three-part division of the landscape are characteristic of his early output.

Don Quixote at the Inn

Don Quixote at the Inn
Oil on canvas. Ca. 1720
Iriarte, Valero

This work belongs to a series inspired by passages from Don Quixote portrayed with the same satirical humour as in Cervantes´text. The famous knight, seated at a table, is served by innkeepers in a parody of what would have been a court ceremony. Similarities have been pointed out with paintings of this type executed by the Madrid-based French artist Michel-Ange Houasse (1680-1730).

The Siesta, or Pompeian Scene
Oil on canvas. 1868
Alma-Tadema, Sir Lawrence

A domestic scene set in classical antiquity. An old man and a youth recline on divans while an attractive young woman plays music on a double flute. Both the clothing and the setting suggest the Greek world, and the motives and clothing are rigorously faithful to archeological discoveries made in the mid nineteenth century. Despite being Dutch by birth, Sir Lawrence Alma cultivated an eclectic per

Lupercalia
Oil on canvas. Ca. 1635
Camassei, Andrea

Lupercalia was a festival involving sacrifices to the two deities associated, respectively, with fecundity and childbirth: Pan and Lucina. As part of the celebrations, the men whipped their wives to make them more fecund. Two young musicians close to the scene of the sacrifice to the gods, as well as the statue on the altar itself, carry wind instruments characteristic of this type of festivity.Wi

The Baptismal procession of Prince Juan, son of the Catholic Kings, through the streets of Seville
Oil on canvas. 1910
Pradilla y Ortiz, Francisco

This painting depicts the baptism of Prince Juan. It is based on the description of that event from Historia de los Reyes Católicos (History of the Catholic Kings) by Andrés Bernáldez, published in 1856. The documentary rigor of this text is transferred to the canvas, so we can speak here of the archeological veracity with which Pradilla reconstructed that historical event. Th

Emblem of Death
Oil on panel. 1635 - 1640
Steenwijck, Pieter Van

Steenwijck brings to the vanitas a genre in which he specialised, according to the surviving inventories -the compositional structure, scheme, colour range and lighting characteristic of the so-called monochrome banketjes or monochrome still lifes of Willem Claesz. Heda (P2754, P2655 and P2756) and Pieter Claesz. (P2753). Accordingly, the objects are arranged on a simple wooden table that is half

The Marriage at Cana
Oil on canvas. XVI century
Bassano, Leandro

There is a print by Pietro Monaco (1707-1772), published by Guglielmo Zerletti in Venice in 1763, which reproduces a painting of the Marriage at Cana then attributed to Jacopo and owned by the lawyer Giulio Crivellari. In Spain, a composition with the same title though smaller (112 x 84 cm approximately) was listed in the 1711 inventory of the 9th Duke of Medinaceli. The original painting, probabl

The Birth of the Sun and the Triumph of Bacchus
Oil on canvas. 1761
Giaquinto, Corrado

This is a sketch of the fresco that Corrado Giaquinto painted in the former stairway at the Madrid’s Royal Palace, which is now the Hall of Columns. That fresco, his last work at the Royal Palace, is undoubtedly one of the finest paintings from Giaquinto’s Spanish period.He concluded it in 1762, so the sketch presented here must have been made slightly earlier. At the top is the figure of Apollo,

Angels
Oil on panel. 1550
Kempeneer, Pieter

The six musician angels (triangle, harp, flute, castanets, a type of violin and a tambourine) decorated the doors of a tabernacle. Despite the chromatic variety, the choice of a cool palette produces a technical result close to grisaille. This dissonant, almost Mannerist effect combined with the expressionistic physical types and the rather sketchy treatment of the figures is characteristic of Ped

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

Rustic Concert with Pipe and Violin
Oil on panel. 1635 - 1637
Ostade, Adriaen Van

This work belongs to the so-called peasant interiors, one of the new genres of painting that emerged and developed in the Netherlandsin the early seventeenth century. In Houbraken and in early inventories they are described as een boertje, (a little peasant) or as toeback rookerchen (tobacco smokers). The consolidation and appreciation of this genre was fostered by the satirical and moralising lit

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
