The episodes from the life of Saint Ambrose were commissioned from Juan de Valdés Leal (1622-1690) by Ambrosio Ignacio Spínola y Guzmán (1632-1684), Archbishop of Seville, for his private oratory. They are markedly specular in nature given that the saint and archbishop share the same name, ecclesiastical rank and connections with northern Italy. The series was conceived by Sp&

The painter, of Riojan origin, completed his artistic formation with Jean Changenet in Avignon (doc. 1493). When he returned to Castile he worked in Palencia and Burgos. The simplification of volumes in his work and the importance given to light show the influence of Provencal art. Besides the sculptural image of the bishop and saint, there is a striking contrast between the realist design of the

This scene from the life of Saint Bernard depicts the Virgin Mary’s apparition to the Cistercian monk and the miraculous milk he received from her breasts as thanks for his devotion. He is accompanied by his customary iconographic symbols: an abbot’s staff, the bishop’s miter that he rejected, and books alluding to the texts he dedicated to Mary.

This painting is a copy of the lower part of El Greco’s celebrated original on display in the church of Santo Tomé, Toledo. A work of considerable quality, it reveals an interesting variety of pictorial devices: heavily charged brushstrokes in the areas of the chasubles and ruffs, with the pigment dragged and scumbled in other zones such as the Franciscan’s habit. It was formerly in the Jes

The Virgin sits with the Christ Child in the midst of grandiose classical architecture. She is surrounded by numerous saints in various positions. Above her, some angels prepare to crown her as Queen of Heaven. This work was sometimes thought to be a representation of The Mystical Betrothal of Saint Catherine, because of the strong presence of that saint, who is depicted kneeling before the Christ

This painting entered the holdings of the Museo del Prado as an anonymous Flemish work, although the 1873 catalogue reports the attribution to the Le Nain brothers proposed by M. de Chennevières based on its purported similarity to The Procession (Paris, Musée du Louvre, inv. 6841), then held to be an original work by these artists. From 1942 onwards it is listed as executed by Frans

The background includes two well known Toledan buildings: the Franciscan monastery of San Bartolomé de la Vega, which was destroyed during the Peni
