Allegory of Fame
Oil on canvas. Ca. 1775
Castillo, José del

This singular composition, which can be dated 1775, was painted at the height of the 18th century, although, in aesthetic terms, the Baroque was already in decline as it entered its final phase. Its decorative conception echoes the refinement of the rococo, although it draws much of its material from the anaglyphic repertory of the mature Renaissance—conveniently polished—when artists were recover

The Sense of Sight
Oil on panel. 1617
Rubens, Peter Paul; Brueghel The Elder, Jan (Jan 'velvet' Brueghel)

This set of paintings on the five senses 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 in Flemish painting. Sight was consider

Sight and Smell
Oil on canvas. Ca. 1620
Francken II, Frans; Balen, Hendrick Van; Brueghel The Elder, Jan (Jan 'velvet' Brueghel)

This canvas and its companion, Taste, Hearing and Touch (P1404), represent the five senses embodied by female figures in palatial interiors. The sense of smell is conveyed by a woman holding flowers, while Sight contemplates herself in a mirror held by a cherub. They are located in a hall filled with paintings and sculptures, a sort of cabinet of paintings that could reflect an idealized represent

The seven Liberal Arts
Tempera on panel. Ca. 1435
Ponte, Giovanni Dal

This decoration of the front of a chest depicts the seven Liberal Arts, accompanied by an equal number of figures that represent the most relevant personages in each discipline. All are being crowned with laurel wreaths by small angels. Astronomy presides over the composition, carrying the heavenly sphere, with Ptolomy (first and second centuries A.D.) sitting at his feet and reading one of the th

Allegory of Astronomy
Oil on canvas. Ca. 1775
Castillo, José del

This canvas, like P7349, is one of a group of six preparatory designs for the tapestries made for the private room of the Princess of Asturias in the Royal Palace. In each canvas a putto holds symbols referring to the work’s allegorical subject, in this case Astronomy’s armillary sphere and compasses. Based on Renaissance ornamentation, the delicacy and colour as well as the floral and bird motifs

Giovanni Battista Caselli, Poet from Cremona
Oil on canvas. 1557 - 1558
Anguissola, Sofonisba

The identification of this elderly gentleman sitting at a desk in his study is borne out by the inscription on the fore edge of the book he is writing in, which displays the words "rime del casellio". Giovanni Battista Caselli was a poet and medal engraver who enjoyed certain prominence in Cremona during his lifetime, though there is little reliable information about him today. Nevertheless, Casel
