The Last Supper
Oil on panel. 1555 - 1562
Juanes, Juan de (Vicente Juan Masip)

Painted for the base of the main altarpiece of San Esteban in Valencia (P00838, P00839, P00840, P00841 and P00842), Inspired by Leonardo, both in the definition of the space and in the eloquent expressiveness of the apostles, it also shows Juanes’s close relationship with Raphael. In keeping with traditional iconography in Spain, he focussed the scene on Jesus, serene and triumphant at the moment

Christ kneels with his arms raised, looking to the heavens where a angel holds attributes of his passion: a chalice and a cross. The sleeping apostles appear in the middle ground, behind Christ to the left. This work passed from the Royal Collection to the Museo del Prado with an attribution to Juan de Juanes. In 1920, Tormo´s opinion prevailed and it was correctly cataloged as a work by his

The Last Supper
Oil on canvas. 1593 - 1594
Carracci, Agostino

Together with his brother Annibale and his cousin Ludovico, Agostino Carracci founded the so-called Accademia degli Incamminati in Bologna. Its teachings promoted the study of nature and the work of the great Renaissance masters in order to avoid the overly-complex forms of Mannerist painting. While the colouring and handling of this canvas are influenced by Tintoretto, the monumental figures of t

The Triptych in the Museo del Prado labeled as Scenes from the Life of Christ is a pivotal work in the story of Valencian painting in the fifteenth century and in the transmission of the style and technique of Jan van Eyck to the Iberian Peninsula. The panel entered the Prado collection in 1931 from the convent of the Encarnación in Valencia, a Carmelite foundation established in 1502. It w

Maíno, Fray Juan Bautista

On 14 February 1612 Juan Bautista Maíno signed the contract to execute the paintings for the monastery church of San Pedro Mártir in Toledo. Maíno agreed to a period of eight months to make the paintings, which had to portray the scenes and episodes specified by the prior of the monastery. Despite the agreement reached in the contract, the paintings were not completed until De

Ribera, Jusepe de, lo Spagnoletto

Series of Apostles became very popular during the Counter-reformation; they were usually half-length figures against a neutral background, holding their iconographical attributes. One of the most important series is the one that Ribera painted around 1630. It is mentioned for the first time in the Royal Collection towards the end of the eighteenth century and is made up of paintings of varying qua

Saint Stephen accused of Blasphemy

Juanes, Juan de (Vicente Juan Masip)

Juan de Juanes depicts the episode in the Acts of the Apostles when Saint Stephen declared before the Sanhedrin: “I see the heavens opened and the Son of Man standing on the right hand of God.” When they heard him the priests “cried out with a loud voice and stopped their ears and rushed together at him” (Acts 7, 56 and 57). The classical architecture of the temple is a striking element in the com

The Apostles sleep in the foreground, indifferent to the suffering of Christ who is attended by angels. One holds a chalice, prefiguring the Passion. The artist looked to Correggio (c. 1489-1534) in the treatment of the figures and folds of the drapery, which have details characteristic of a miniature. The canvas was in the Roman collection of the painter Carlo Maratta (1625-1713) and was acquired

The raising of Lazarus
Oil on canvas. 1635 - 1640
Novelli, Pietro

This painting has recently been identified as a work by Pietro Novelli, known as Il Monrealese on account of his having been born in Monreale, Sicily. It was considered until 1933 to be the work of Neapolitan painter Andrea Vaccaro, and after that time its authorship was demoted to Anonymous Neapolitan by the Museo del Prado. The painting passed largely unnoticed on account of its being on long-te

The Virgin Mary lies on her deathbed, surrounded by eleven Apostles. Through the window, the Borgo di San Giorgio and the Laguna of Mantua can be seen in the background. This scene depicts the Virgin Mary´s final moment on earth. According to the Apocrypha, her body and soul were carried up to Heaven by Jesus following her earthly death. This moment is also known as the “Dormition of the Virgin”.

The Last Supper
Oil on canvas. 1605
Carducho, Bartolomé

The Florentine Bartolomé Carducho was one of the founders of the Madrid school of painting. His work deploys a masterly use of drawing, an ordered sense of composition and a warm palette toned by a carefully controlled light. Rather than the more traditional image of the consecration of the Eucharist, in this Last Supper Carducho focuses on the Apostles’ varied reactions to Christ’s announc

In keeping with the Gospel according to Saint Luke (22: 39-46), Christ, far from the disciples, kneels down with his hands separated and prays to the Father to take away the cup of suffering he must drink, represented by the chalice on the rock. The three apostles who accompany him, Peter, John and James, are asleep. The painting comes from the main altar piece of the church of San Lázaro i

Dyck, Anthony Van

In the darkness of the Mount of Olives, Jesus receives the kiss that consummates Judas´ betrayal while Peter cuts off the ear of Malco, the High Priest´s servant, with his sword, as described in the Bible story. This work from Van Dyck´s youth is directly based on Venetian models. The low viewpoint and the use of a single source of light contribute to its great dramatic intensity

Hidden by a cloud, Christ ascends to heaven, watched by Mary and the apostles, amongst whom James is placed in a prominent position. He appears with a staff and a pilgrim’s hat. The upper part of Christ’s body is concealed, in order to focus attention on his footprints at the summit of the Mount of Olives. This and three other panels by Juan de Flandes (P02935, P02936, P02938) belonged to the main

The Washing of the Feet
Oil on canvas. 1548 - 1549
Tintoretto, Jacopo Robusti

This scene from the New Testament (John 13, 1-20) shows the moment just before the Last Supper, when Jesus washed Saint Peter´s feet as an example of humility and service to others. The displacement of the main characters, Christ and Saint Peter, to one end of the composition is due to the original location of this work on the right wall of the presbytery of San Marcuola, where the image of Christ

In the Upper Room, represented here by architectural elements that support a curtained arch, Christ prepares to wash the feet of Peter, who duly raises his leg in order to put his foot into a bowl. On the left, an Apostle holds the cloth for Christ to dry him. This mural fragment comes from the apse of the church of Sant Esteve (Andorra la Vella).

Christ appears above a rainbow with his feet resting on the globe of the Earth and his arms raised. He is flanked by Mary and Saint John the Baptist, and besides them, the twelve apostles. Two trumpeting angels announce the Last Judgement, which ties in with the lower scene of the resurrection of the dead and their reward or punishment for earthly acts. This representation of Christ resurrected as
