Armida and Rinaldo
Oil on canvas. Ca. 1697
Giordano, Luca

Ubaldo y Carlo lograron penetrar en el palacio encantado de Armida, donde se encontraba ella con Reinaldo, entregados a sus juegos amatorios. Reinaldo, apoyado sobre la joven, contempla su rostro reflejado en un espejo. Dos figuras asoman en el bosque para urgirle a que abandone su retiro amoroso y regresar al combate.

The Three Graces
Oil on oak panel. 1630 - 1635
Rubens, Peter Paul

The Graces were minor deities but in this splendid work Peter Paul Rubens devotes his best effort to them. The three goddesses embrace each other forming a circle. The positioning of their feet suggests movement; they seem to dance gently. The setting is as luscious as the nude bodies of the goddesses. A field illuminated by sunlight filtered through dense trees stretches to a distant blue. The sh

Landscape with Psyche and Jupiter
Oil on canvas. Ca. 1610
Rubens, Peter Paul; Bril, Paul

On a number of occasions, Peter Paul Rubens partially overpainted finished pictures. He did this to paintings by his own hand, such as Nymphs and Satyrs (P1666), which he retouched and enlarged twenty years after he first painted it. He also made changes to drawings and paintings by other artists that he owned. This painting is an example of such reworking, albeit in a radical mode that changed th

Table
Oil on canvas. 1636 - 1650
Benedetti, Andries

On a table partially covered by a green tablecloth, the painter has placed a white cloth, delicate gold-worked jars and glasses that reflect the light, a dish with ham, bread and a large basket of peaches and several types of grapes. There is also a half-peeled lemon, typical of Nordic still-lifes. In the background, there is a large red curtain and a gallery with columns. Charged with symbolic an

The Rape of Hippodamia
Oil on canvas. 1636 - 1637
Rubens, Peter Paul (And Workshop)

Like Fortuna (P1674) and the Marriage of Peleus and Thetis (P1634), the Rape of Hippodamia was part of the massive cycle of mythologies designed by Peter Paul Rubens in 1636-37 for the Torre de la Parada, Philip IV´s newly constructed hunting lodge on the outskirts of Madrid. The oil sketch for this picture, now in Brussels (Musees Royaux des Beaux-Arts de Belgique), was largely replicated in the

Miracle of Saint Anthony of Padua
Oil on panel. Ca. 1500
Anonymous

This panel depicts a miracle of Saint Anthony: the conversion of a heretic when he realised that a hungry mule refrained from eating a basket of barley with a consecrated Host on it. Sculpture is used to characterise the different buildings in the urban setting in which the episode takes place, with saints on churches and kings on the town hall.

A Larder
Oil on canvas. 1642
Utrecht, Adriaen Van

Adriaen van Utrecht was a leading still-life painter in Antwerp, producing paintings characterised by their large size and opulent content, works that are also striking for their compositions and pictorial technique. Paintings of this type reflected the wealth and cosmopolitan culture of their owners.

Fête in a Park
Oil on canvas. 1712 - 1713
Watteau, Jean-Antoine
Fête in a Park
Oil on canvas. 1712 - 1713
Watteau, Jean-Antoine

With his characteristic lyricism, Watteau captures the charm of a relaxed moment in which a group of people are gallantly presented in a garden. The predominant feeling is one of evanescence, resulting in a peculiar lack of definition: an atmosphere that blurs the contours and very nearly blends the sculptures in the fountain and pedestal into natural surroundings lit from an undetermined source.

The Garden of Love
Oil on canvas. 1630 - 1635
Rubens, Peter Paul
The Garden of Love
Oil on canvas. 1630 - 1635
Rubens, Peter Paul

We are confronted here with one of Rubens’s greatest gifts as a painter: his ability to create images of a joyful way of being in the world related to love and inspired by ancient literature and Renaissance art. In the case of the latter, this means primarily Titian. This painting is especially close in mood to the Bacchanal of the Andrians and the Worship of Venus. Many features of this scene cal

The Immaculate Conception
Oil on canvas. 1767 - 1769
Tiepolo, Giovanni Battista

This majestic image was part of a cycle of seven altarpieces commissioned in 1767 for the new royal church of San Pascual Bailón at Aranjuez, founded by Charles III in the same year. The altarpieces comprised the entire pictorial decoration of this Alcantarine Franciscan church, which was built in an austere classical style. The subjects of the altarpieces reflected some of the most importa

Family in a Garden
Oil on canvas. 1679
Kessel el Joven, Jan Van

This scene of a family in a garden is a rare example of a group portrait in Spanish 17th-century art. Its uniqueness is explained by the fact that it was painted by a Flemish artist based in Madrid, who also included his self-portrait looking out of a window. Despite the appearance of everyday normality, the unknown sitters are surrounded by a wide range of symbols that refer to the virtues of fam

Rebecca and Eliezer
Oil on canvas. Ca. 1660
Murillo, Bartolomé Esteban

In his search for a wife for his master, Isaac, Eliezer encountered Rebecca, who offered him water from her pitcher by the well. The biblical account offered Murillo the perfect pretext for depicting an everyday scene typical of any Andalusian town square, with four women about to fill their pitchers.

Pool in the Gardens of the Real Alcázar, Seville
Oil on panel. 1868
Madrazo y Garreta, Raimundo de

Two little girls play with one of the swans in the pool of the Jardín de las Damas at the Real Alcázar in Seville. Madrazo displays here his extraordinary skill with colours, particularly in the rich range of greens that dominate much of the composition, and in the marked contrast between the strongly-lit whitewashed wall and the shady area behind the arches.

The Christ Child, Saint John and the Lamb
Oil on panel. 1618 - 1620
Rubens, Peter Paul; Dyck, Anthony Van

Saint John is depicted with his customary symbols, a cross with a ribbon bearing the motto “Lamb of God”. Indeed, there is a lamb beside him, which the Christ Child tenderly pets. The fountain on the right is a double allusion to the Baptism of Christ and to his condition as the “fountain of life”. The close human and everyday vision of the two boys belongs to a tradition posterior to the Catholic

The Miracle of the Well
Oil on canvas. 1638
Cano, Alonso

A depiction of one of the miracles of Saint Isidore the Laborer (12th century), the patron saint of Madrid, who made many miracles. Here, after his son had fallen into a well, the water miraculously rose to the top, carrying the child up with it, thanks to his fathers´ prayers, and those of his mother, Saint Mary of the Head. Cano stands out for his rapid brushstrokes and very rich palette, which
