A Fair in Madrid
Oil on canvas. 1779
Goya y Lucientes, Francisco de

A group of individuals appear in front of the stall of a seller who displays his vessels, furniture, used clothing and paintings. Others people visit the other stalls around the Plaza de la Cebada, where all sorts of objects, including paintings, were sold. The background offers a view of the imposing Church of San Francisco el Grande. Goya presents certain types and customs of Madrid´s society, s

José Gutiérrez de los Ríos
Oil on canvas. 1849
López Portaña, Vicente

Está retratado hasta las rodillas a sus sesenta y nueve años, sentado en un sillón. Viste traje y corbata negros, chaleco marfil y un bello broche en la pechera de la camisa. En la solapa luce la venera de caballero de Montesa y de la botonadura del chaleco pende la leontina de su reloj. Apoya el brazo derecho en un libro sobre varias cartas, en una de las cuales se lee la dedicatoria, sobre un ve

The Concert
Oil on canvas. Ca. 1640
Falcone, Aniello

Falcone painted the figures in this painting; the Neapolitan specialist Luca Forte probably painted the vase of flowers on the left. It looks like a portrait gallery of real people, one of whom -the bearded man on the right- appears in other paintings by Falcone. The painting comes from the collection of the Duke of Medina de las Torres, viceroy of Naples between 1637 and 1644.

Self-portrait
Oil on canvas. 1907
Menéndez Pidal, Luis

Entre los numerosos retratos que realizó Menéndez Pidal se cuentan unos pocos autorretratos. En sentido estricto son solamente dos: uno, realizado en 1895 (colección particular, Madrid) y éste del Prado pintado en 1907, igualmente sobrio y más directo y franco de factura. Este autorretrato, de gran franqueza expresiva por su composición frontal, muestra al artista en su plenitud, el mismo año en q

Self-portrait
Oil on canvas. 1918
Pradilla y Ortiz, Francisco

Se trata del último autorretrato realizado por Pradilla de los cinco que se conocen. El que inicia la serie es propiedad de la Academia Española de Roma y fue pintado por su autor durante la época de pensionado. Le siguen tres muy próximos en su ejecución. El de menor formato pertenece a la colección del Museo Nacional de Bellas Artes de Buenos Aires y lo donó Don Ángel Roverano en 1910. Un poco m

Benito Soriano
Oil on canvas. 1855
Madrazo y Kuntz, Federico de

Retrato de busto en el que aparece el pintor retratado a los 28 años, cuando ya gozaba de una gran amistad con Federico de Madrazo. De frente, ligeramente girado hacia la izquierda, con lentes, amplio bigote y perilla. Sobre la chaqueta y resaltando sobre el blanco de la camisa, un semiabocetado lazo realizado con amplias pinceladas que contrastan con el acabado dibujístico del rostro. El brillo d

The old-fashioned Cobbler
Oil on canvas. 1870 - 1875
Domingo Marqués, Francisco

Considered one of the finest examples of Francisco Domingo´s portraiture, this work shows an old shoemaker -an extraordinarily popular figure in the old neighborhoods of the major cities- over a neutral background. The loose brushstrokes, applied in short, juxtaposed fashion, bring out the sitter´s intense expression, managing to emphasize his face and neck despite the reduced palette. Domingo con

A Hospital Ward during the Chief Physician’s Round
Oil on canvas. 1889
Jiménez Aranda, Luis

At the National Exhibition of 1892, history painting was definitively superseded by social realism. This was largely due to the prestige of this picture, which won the first medal in Madrid after previously obtaining the same distinction at the 1889 Universal Exhibition in Paris. Directly influenced by Jules Bastien-Lepage, Jiménez Aranda paints an attractive naturalist scene with no trace

The Death of the Virgin
Mixed method on panel transferred to canvas. Ca. 1500
Master Of la Sisla

Excepting some variants, such as the window opening onto a landscape or the face of the Virgin, this painting reproduces the composition of an engraving by Martin Schongauer, which accounts for its aesthetic links with productions from the region of Alsace and the Upper Rhine. Like the Master of La Sisla, other painters active in Spain in the late 15th century also drew inspiration from the prints

Contemporary Poets. A Reading by Zorilla in the Painter's Studio
Oil on canvas. 1846
Esquivel, Antonio María

The most famous of Esquivel´s pieces and a leading work of Spanish Romanticism. Considered the maximum graphical testimony to the intellectual atmosphere during the reign of Isabel II (1830 - 1904), this canvas depicts a fictitious meeting of Esquivel´s most relevant cultural contemporaries. The composition combines the complexities of a group portrait with the scheme of Flemish Baroque cabinet po

Antonio González Velázquez, Father of the Artist

González Velázquez, Zacarías

Son of the sculptor Pablo González Velázquez, a number of Antonio’s children also became artists. He trained in Rome with Corrado Giaquinto (1703-1766), achieving a notable command of fresco painting and a mastery of the art of composition and perspective superior to many other Spanish painters of the day. González Velázquez’s style is one of the most spontaneous and br

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

The Painter Benito Soriano Murillo

Madrazo y Garreta, Raimundo de

Benito Soriano Murillo (1827-1891) was an artist and deputy director of the Museo del Prado. He shared Raimundo de Madrazo and his family’s love of music, referred to by the guitar and piano. The elegant pose, characteristic of the French tradition that Madrazo assimilated in Paris, coexists here with the influence of Spanish portraiture and the style of the artist’s father, Federico de Madrazo.

María Teresa Moret
Oil on canvas. 1901
Sorolla y Bastida, Joaquín

Representative of Sorolla’s fully mature period, this work is also one of the finest female portraits he ever executed. The artist knew the sitter very well, as she was the wife of one of his closest friends, whose portrait he would, in turn, paint the following year. The amiable frankness with which they related to each other, expressed by the artist in his dedication, and his recognition of the

The Tooth Extractor
Oil on canvas. 1620 - 1625
Rombouts, Theodoor

A tooth extractor has laid out all his surgical instruments on a table, with numerous figures looking on, in a scene that is depicted with astonishing fidelity by the painter, a follower of Caravaggio and a specialist in this type of composition. Besides the diplomas or titles, perhaps fake, certifying his training, his best calling card is his experience, substantiated by a collar of teeth worn a

Salvador Martínez Cubells, Father of the Artist
Oil on canvas. 1901
Martínez Cubells y Ruiz Diosayuda, Enrique

Este retrato de Salvador Martínez Cubells, pintado en 1901 por su hijo Enrique a la vuelta de un viaje por Alemania, nos muestra al artista, envejecido, ligeramente encorvado, casi de media figura y de perfil, concentrado en la mezcla de colores en su paleta, momento antes de disponerse a dar una pincelada en un cuadro que queda fuera de la mirada del espectador. El pintor, concentrado en su propi

Saint Bonaventure receiving the Habit from Saint Francis
Oil on canvas. 1628
Herrera The Elder, Francisco de

This is one of a series of eight works painted by Herrera and Zurbarán for the church of the Colegio de San Buenaventura in Seville on the subject of the life of that saint (1221-1274). The present canvas depicts the moment when the young Bonaventure kneels before Saint Francis to receive the habit. The palette of earth tones and lively brushstrokes are characteristic of the artist`s style.

The Triumph of Death
Oil on panel. 1562 - 1563
Bruegel The Elder, Pieter

In this moral work, the triumph of Death over mundane things is symbolized by a large army of skeletons razing the Earth. The background is a barren landscape in which scenes of destruction are still taking place. In the foreground, Death leads his armies from his reddish horse, destroying the world of the living. The latter are led to an enormous coffin with no hope for salvation. All of the soci
