The Painter's Family
Oil on canvas. 1621 - 1622
Jordaens, Jacques
The Painter's Family
Oil on canvas. 1621 - 1622
Jordaens, Jacques

This attractive group portrait, one of the most interesting of the 17th-century Dutch school on account of its bourgeois spirit with aristocratic leanings, is an extraordinary skilful depiction of the artist´s close family. Jordaens portrays himself with his wife Catharina van Noort and their first child Elizabeth, born on 26 June 1617, whose age allows us to date the work approximately. Cat

Pietà
Oil on canvas. 1650 - 1660
Jordaens, Jacques

The Virgin holds Christ´s dead body on her lap and turns an imploring look towards the heavens. Saint John, in red, Joseph of Arimathea and Nicodemus meditate on the event of which they are the protagonists. Towards the bottom, Mary Magdalene removes the Thorns form Christ´s head and Mary Salome kisses his hand. This is a work from Jordaens´ mature period, with the long, watery brushstrokes that c

Marriage of Peleus and Thetis
Oil on canvas. 1636 - 1638
Jordaens, Jacques

As with the Rape of Hippodamia (P01658), this marriage scene was commissioned from Rubens as part of the mythological cycle drawn from Ovid´s Metamorphoses, which was to serve as the main artistic decoration of the Torre de la Parada. While Rubens prepared the oil sketch for the scene (Art Institute of Chicago), the Marriage of Peleus and Thetis was one of the numerous full-scale canvases whose ex

Meleager and Atalanta
Oil on canvas. 1620 - 1623
Jordaens, Jacques

This mythological scene is drawn from the Metamorphoses of Roman poet Publio Ovidio Nason, one of the texts on ancient mythology that had the greatest intellectual impact on 17th-century Flemish artists. According to Ovid, Diana had sent an enormous wild boar to ravage the region of Calydon as punishment after the king failed to make the promised sacrifices to her. The king’s son, Meleager, was an

Perseus freeing Andromeda
Oil on canvas. 1639 - 1641
Rubens, Peter Paul; Jordaens, Jacques

As punishment for the vanity of Cassiopeia, who thought herself more beautiful than the Neriads, Poseidon, god of the seas, sent a monster to the kingdom of Ethiopia. Its fury could only be detained if it received Cassiopeia´s daughter, Andromeda. This painting illustrates the moment when Perseus frees Andromeda from her bounds. He is in love with her, as is made clear by the presence of Cupid wit

The Fall of the Giants

The Fall of the Giants
Oil on canvas. 1636 - 1638
Jordaens, Jacques

La caída de los gigantes es un episodio brevemente narrado por Ovidio en sus Metamorfosis, Libro I (151-155), en la cual los gigantes que habitaban la tierra querían llegar al cielo y por ello fueron castigados por los dioses: "(...) Y para que el elevado cielo no estuviera más seguro que la tierra, los Gigantes, se dice, aspiraron al reino celestial, y levantaron montañas apiladas hasta las altas

Three Strolling Musicians

Three Strolling Musicians
Oil on panel. 1645 - 1650
Jordaens, Jacques

A bust depiction of three street musicians. The first plays a flute while the other two sing from sheet music held by one of them. The sketchy rendering and vigorous brushstrokes mark this as a preliminary study. However, as no known work of Jordaens uses similar figures, his authorship has long been in doubt. The very loose rendering and large amount of paint in the brushstrokes of the flesh tone

Diogenes searching for a Man

Diogenes searching for a Man
Oil on canvas. 1645 - 1655
Castiglione, Giovanni Benedetto

An inquiring and original artist, as well as an extraordinary draughtsman, Giovanni Benedetto Castiglione travelled throughout much of Italy (besides his native Genoa, he worked in Rome, Mantua, Venice, and possibly Parma, Florence, Bologna and Modena) absorbing and appropriating a great variety of tendencies and languages, from the vigorous naturalism of painters living in Genoa, such as Sinibald

Offering to Ceres
Oil on canvas. Ca. 1620
Jordaens, Jacques
Offering to Ceres
Oil on canvas. Ca. 1620
Jordaens, Jacques

Crowned with wheat, as goddess of the Earth, Ceres holds a horn filled with fruit, a symbol of the abundance and fertility that characterizes her. She receives homage from a group of peasants, who bear an offering of the products they receive from the earth they farm. This goddess taught humans to use the plow and to farm, to which the painter alludes by including oxen in the work. Ceres also embo

Cadmus and Minerva

Cadmus and Minerva
Oil on canvas. 1636 - 1638
Jordaens, Jacques

La historia de Cadmo y la aparición de Minerva aparece en el libro III de las Metamorfosis (95-114): "(...) Mientras el vencedor calcula el tamaño del enemigo vencido, se oyó de repente una voz; no era posible saber de donde venía, pero se oyó: "¿Por qué miras, hijo de Agénor, la serpiente que has matado? También tú serás serpiente y te mirarán" (...)Deslizándose por el cielo aparece Palas y le or
