Saint Peter
Oil on panel. 1536 - 1538
Juanes, Juan de (Vicente Juan Masip)

This work´s existence and interest were noticed by Valencian specialist and director of that city´s Museum of Fine Arts, Fernando Benito Domenech. That museum´s Juan de Juanes exhibition in 2000 included this panel and convincingly related it to the Saint Eligius Altarpiece, which the Valencian Silversmiths´ Guild had commissioned for the church of Santa Catalina in 1534. That contract called for

Saint Francis of Assisi in the Porziuncola with the Donors Antonio Contreras and María Amezquita
Oil on canvas. 1659
Caro, Francisco

Christ and the Virgin Mary appear to Saint Francis at the church of la Porziuncola and the saint asks them for plenary indulgence for all pilgrims to that site. We know the artist´s name because it is revealed by the signature halfway up the canvas on the right, as well as through Antonio Palomino´s Museo Pictórico (1724). Palomino´s biography of Francisco Caro (ca.1627-1667) in that book p

This is a set of two scenes (P02842, P02841) referring to one of the first known stories of Saint Eloy, a French saint from the late sixth and early seventh century and a great goldsmith who served kings Clotaire II and Dagobert and became Bishop of Rouen. In Saint Eloy before King Clotaire (P02842), the Merovingian king, Clotaire, who knows the saint´s fame and skills as a metal worker, commissio

Charles II stands in the Alcázar Palace’s Hall of Mirrors, alongside a porphyry table held up by two of Mateo Bonuccelli’s gilded bronze lions. The monarch is dressed in black silk, as was cutomary in royal portraits of the Spanish branch of the Habsburg dynasty since the time of Philip II. He wears the Golden Fleece on a necklace and has a sword on his belt. He holds a folded report in his

Madrazo y Kuntz, Federico de

This is a posthumous portrait of the monarch. He appears standing, in full-length, and dressed in a simple captain-general’s uniform, upon which he bears the grand laureate cross and sash of the military order of San Fernando (Saint Ferdinand), as well as the decorations of the Golden Fleece hanging from his collar and a cummerbund and a sabre girdle around his waist. He poses inside a palatial sa

These two Bouquets of flowers (P001043 and P001042) perfectly exemplify Paret’s mastery in truthfully and beautifully representing nature, as well as his ability to execute compositions in which the harmony of shapes, colour and light emphasise the pleasure of contemplation. The smooth modelling as well as the detailed and thorough depiction of the different flower species – achieved through the a

Rubens, Peter Paul

In 1625, Archduchess Isabel Clara Eugenia commissioned Rubens to design a series of twenty tapestries for the Monastery of the Descalzas Reales in Madrid. The subject was the Eucharist, a leading Catholic dogma that the infanta defended in her role as sovereign princess of the southern Netherlands. Rubens conceived the scenes like victory marches, as if the cloths were hanging from baroque archite

Hamen y León, Juan Van Der

This work and its companion (P6413) belonged to Jean de Croy, Count of Solre and captain of the Flemish Royal Guard of Archers, of which Van der Hamen was a member. Unframed, the two paintings hung in De Croy’s Madrid palace, where they flanked the entrance to the painting gallery. As such, they may have served as a trompe l’oeil expansion of the real space, whose floor they probably reproduce. Th

The Virgin of Atocha

The Virgin of Atocha

Carreño de Miranda, Juan

This surprising canvas presents the image of the Virgin of Atocha, just as she was worshipped on her altar at the Dominican convent dedicated to her on the outskirts of Madrid. This type of votive image with luxurious rigid clothing that gives the figure a conical silhouette—hence their popular characterization as “funnel” images—is very characteristic of the 17th century and quite frequently repr

Gonzalo Fernández de Córdoba at the Battle of Cerignola

Madrazo y Kuntz, Federico de

This canvas is one of the fundamental works of Spanish Romantic painting. It is also considered the first important painting of this genre throughout the prolific career of Federico de Madrazo, who would later dedicate himself almost exclusively to portraits. It is Poussinesque in size (one-third of life-size), following the academic trend at that time. The canvas depicts an episode of the Second

Saint Andrew refusing to worship the Idol

Borrassà, Luis

This panel is from the altarpiece of Saint Andrew, which Joan Bastida commissioned for that saint’s chapel in Barcelona Cathedral. By locating the gilded idol on a complex structure in the centre, the artist could arrange the two groups in the composition on either side of it: on the left is the enthroned proconsul with two other male figures and on the right is the captured Saint Andrew with the

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

This more-than-half-length portrait presents a boy dressed in black with a white shirt. He rests his left hand on his waist while holding his gloves in his right. A gold chain around his neck is matched by another at his waist that bears a sword with a gilded hilt. It has been suggested that this panel may represent François, Duke of Alençon (b. 1554, d. 1584), son of Henri II of Fra

Master Of The Legend Of Saint Catherine

The wound in Christ`s side was inflicted after his death (John 19:34). The two angels, blue and dressed in blue, are apparently cherubim. Saint John the Evangelist steps forward to support the weeping Virgin, who is kneeling and embracing the Cross. Her mouth is very close to the blood running from the wounds in Christ`s feet. The three women on the right are presumably the Three Maries: Mary Magd

Oil on canvas. 1635
Vaccaro, Andrea

Bishop Gennaro (or Januarius) is the patron saint of Naples, and thus the subject of numerous works from that city’s rich school of painting. According to tradition, he was bishop of Benevento during the Diocletianic Persecution in the third century AD. While visiting Pozzuoli, north of the Gulf of Naples, Gennaro was taken prisoner and tortured in various ways, miraculously emerging unscathed. Fi

The panel’s small size, making it particularly suitable for private devotion, reflects the growth of the cult of the Virgin. A typical feature of Tuscan art of this date is the use of inscriptions such as the one held here by the Christ Child: “VENITE AD ME OMNES” (Come to me all of you). Such inscriptions allowed the literate viewer to read the message of the image as well as see it, offering a d

An inventory from 1636 describes this striking portrait of the Infante Ferdinand: A half-length portrait, which the Marquis of Leganés brought back, of the Infante Ferdinand in the dress and manner in which His Highness entered Brussels. He has a baton in his right hand. He wears a bright red velvet coat with gold trim, and a scarlet sash embroidered with gold, in which there is a broadswor
