A poor student is handing over some coins to a fruit-seller as he makes a knot in the handkerchief, clinched in his teeth, to put away the change. On the right side, in the immediate foreground, a young man biting on a chunk of melon stares at us. He is holding a basket full of fruit, which, besides the melons on the left, is one of the most attractive parts of this splendid “still life with figur

Self-portrait with a Hat
Oil on canvas. 1901
Pinazo Camarlench, Ignacio

Pinazo, an artist obsessed with his own image, painted numerous self-portraits, some showing him with a hat. In these works, he rendered his expressive facial features with naturalist exactitude against very sober backgrounds. The gaze of the eye in the lighted half of the face here reflects his efforts to capture the image directly and precisely, something his ample brushwork accomplishes with as

Peasants or villagers hold a feast in front of a tavern or inn, recognizable by its red flag. They drink, eat and dance to the music of a bagpiper standing on a barrel. On the left, various distinguished personages, who stand out because of their different clothing, look on with a combination of curiosity and indifference. A large church in the background indicates there is a town nearby. On the b

Of the people with whom Velázquez must have had contact on a daily basis at the palace, many would have been high functionaries or skilled servants of the court. His own social aspirations included becoming a member of that professional group, which he eventually joined, and he made portraits of some of them, including two now at the Museo del Prado: Diego del Corral, shown here, and his wi

Located against a background landscape resembling those of Joachim Patinir (c. 1480-1524), Saint Jerome kneels in prayer before a crucifix and skull. In this case he is not depicted inside a cave or by its entrance.

Giordano, Luca

Luca Giordano (1634-1705) made an equestrian portrait of Charles II for the Hall of Mirrors at Madrid’s Alcázar palace to emphasize the dynastic continuum in which Charles II constituted the latest link in a chain that had begun with Titian’s portrait of Charles V: Charles V at Mühlberg. The loss of Titian’s work in the fire that ravaged the Alcázar in 1734 makes it impossible t
