María Luisa of Parma, Princess of Asturias
Oil on canvas. Ca. 1765
Mengs, Anton Raphael

Mengs painted these portraits of the heirs to the Spanish throne -the prince and princess of Asturias, Carlos de Borbón and Maria Luisa of Parma- on the occasion of their wedding. As the daughter of Philip I, Duke of Parma, and Louise Isabelle of France, and thus granddaughter of Kings Philip V and Louis XV, Maria Luisa was Queen Consort of Spain between 1788 and 1808. She wears a light-col

Images of feasts and celebrations in the Low Countries are common in the work of Denis van Alsloot. In his customary manner, he creates a very detailed

The Extraction of the Stone of Madness
Oil on oak panel. 1501 - 1505
Bosch, Hieronymus

In the centre of a rectangular surface Bosch incised a circle in which he depicted this scene of Extracting the stone of madness. The resulting image is a mirror that offers a reflection of folly and human madness, located in a rural world remote from that of the nobility and urban life, hence the setting in the countryside in an open landscape. As found in miniature painting of the time, the arti

The Agony in the Garden
Oil on canvas. Ca. 1590
Carracci, Ludovico

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 Miniaturist Teresa Nicolau Parody
Oil on canvas. Ca. 1844
López Portaña, Vicente

As Goya had done with Rosario Weiss, Vicente López undertook to train another of the foremost artists of Spanish Romanticism, the miniaturist Teresa Nicolau. These portraits evince their great respect and appreciation for each other. The court painter depicted his pupil in a three-quarter bust with a white lace mantilla, and although by then she had already been made a member of the Academy

The Flight into Egypt
Oil on pine panel. Ca. 1570
el Greco (Domenikos Theotokopoulos)

This small panel -it is practically a miniature- is truly exceptional among El Greco’s works. In it, he employs landscape as an essential compositional element while simultaneously demonstrating his mastery of the techniques and expressive resources of 16th-century Venetian painting. The Holy Family is depicted on its journey to Egypt, fleeing the persecution of Herod, who decreed the execution of

It has often been stated that this painting is part of a series of four, all now in the Prado, but that is probably not the case. The dimensions of all four paintings (P1619, P1620, P1621, P1622) are similar, but their provenance is not. This, and Table with Cloth, Salt Cellar, Gilt Standing Cup, Pie, Jug, Porcelain Plate with Olives and Cooked Fowl (P1622), are first documented when they were inv

Pantoja de la Cruz, Juan

Isabel Clara Eugenia (1566-1633), King Philip II’s mostbeloved daughter, boasts fine robes and an “upper-crust” and highly-fashionable coiffure. She is standing, with just over half her body visible, her gloved left hand on the back of a chair, holding a miniature of her by-then elderly father in her right hand. This miniature, beside expressing her emotional bond with her father, is also intended

Isabella Farnese

Meléndez, Miguel Jacinto

The brightly lit figure of Isabella Farnese stands out strongly against a dark background. Her face conforms to the highly idealised and slightly inexpressive prototype that Meléndez used in his numerous portraits of the Queen, but here he has paid particular attention to the depiction of the jewels. In the Queen´s hair a brooch with a large pearl secures the salmon pink ribbon that unfurls

Painted in relation to the sitter’s forthcoming marriage to Charles VII of Naples, future Charles III of Spain, this portrait has an elegance and refinement that reflects the prevailing Rococo court style. The splendour and grandeur of Rigaud’s court portraits is here tempered in favour of a more delicate, decorative manner. Daughter of Frederick Augustus III, King of Poland and Elector of Saxony,

The provenance of this canvas (Bornos Collection) and the recent appearance on the antiques market of a full-length portrait of Valentín Bellvís de Moncada in sentry uniform (Fernando Durán, 26/07/2017, misidentified as the 4th Duke of Osuna), also by Esteve and from the same collection, allows for the identification of the young woman portrayed standing as Mercedes de Rojas y

Saint John the Baptist with the Lamb

Sarto, Andrea del (Andrea D'agnolo)

There is some controversy about the authorship of this small panel painting, which some historians attribute to Florentine painter Andrea del Sarto and others consider closer to the work of 16th-century Milanese masters influenced by Leonardo Da Vinci. Made with the care and detail of a miniature, this intimate piece intended for private worship presents Saint John the Baptist in his traditional c

Isabella Farnese (1692-1766), the daughter of Odoardo II, Prince of Parma, and of Dorothea Sophie of Neuburg, married Philip V of Spain in 1714. This portrait is a replica of one made in Parma by Molinaretto, after the Queen´s arrival in Spain, copying a miniature or a portrait prior to her departure from Italy, and from which she later commissioned replicas that she had brought to Spain, giving a

Representation of San Marcos and San Lucas, which, subject and size , it must be part of an altarpiece predella. Along with San Mateo y san Juan Evangelista (P-1065), they depict the four Evangelists as two pairs, engaged in the writing of their Gospels and located before atmospheric landscapes. Ribalta deployed a detailed, delicate brushstroke characteristic of a miniature painter and indicative

The old attribution to the Mannerist painter Pellegrino Tibaldi (1527-1596) may have been suggested by the handling, with its extensive passages of white heightening, as well as the Michelangelesque figure types. Originally from the Ticino, Tibaldi spent his youth in Bologna, later transferring to Rome, where he spent much of his early career. Towards the end of his life, in 1585/86, he moved to S
