The Fruit Vendors
Oil on canvas. Ca. 1650
Espinosa, Jerónimo Jacinto

A poor student is handing over some coins to a fruit-seller as he makes a knot in the handkerchief, clinched in his teeth, to put away the change. On the right side, in the immediate foreground, a young man biting on a chunk of melon stares at us. He is holding a basket full of fruit, which, besides the melons on the left, is one of the most attractive parts of this splendid “still life with figur

Bassano, Jacopo (Jacopo Dal Ponte)

Although for this first version Jacopo borrowed elements from early works such as the young man peeking his head round the column, which appears in the 1536 La fornace ardente (Bassano del Grappa, Museo Civico), he drew mainly from Stefano Cernotto´s Expulsion of the Merchants from the Temple (Venice, Accademia, deposited at the Ceni Foundation). Cernotto, an artist of Dalmatian origin who worked

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

The Surgeon, or The Extraction of the Stone of Madness
Oil on panel. 1550 - 1555
Hemessen, Jan Sanders Van

A surgeon extracts a stone from a patient´s head. The scene takes place in an urban setting, probably a market. An aged helper holds the patient´s head, along with a youth, who prepares the unguents. Meanwhile, another patient grimaces grotesquely while waiting his turn. Hemessen criticizes the defrauding of patients by depicting the doctor with a sarcastic expression that reveals him as an impost

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

Saint Elisabeth of Portugal
Oil on canvas. Ca. 1635
Zurbarán, Francisco de

Born as princess of Aragon in 1271, the daughter of Peter III "the Great" and grand-daughter of James I "the Conqueror" married King Dinis of Portugal in 1293 and became queen of the country. Like her great-aunt Saint Elizabeth of Hungary, with whom her iconography is often confused, she led a deeply Christian life of charity and sacrifice. When her husband died in 1325 she took her vows as a Clar

Francken II, Frans; Balen, Hendrick Van; Brueghel The Elder, Jan (Jan 'velvet' Brueghel)

This canvas and its companion, Taste, Hearing and Touch (P1404), represent the five senses embodied by female figures in palatial interiors. The sense of smell is conveyed by a woman holding flowers, while Sight contemplates herself in a mirror held by a cherub. They are located in a hall filled with paintings and sculptures, a sort of cabinet of paintings that could reflect an idealized represent

Neefs, Pieter I

In the seventeenth century, the chapels, naves and aisles of Catholic churches were filled with altarpieces donated by guilds and wealthy individuals. This meticulous depiction of the nave draws on elements from Antwerp cathedral but it is not an exact representation. To enliven the scene a figure painter added elegantly dressed visitors attending mass and giving money to the poor.

Teniers The Younger, David

The teacher at this money school punishes one of the students while another seems to be interceding on his behalf. Behind, the rest of the students look on in fear from their tables. This is a criticism of the bad social attitudes whose stupidity and lack of rational thought is symbolized here by monkeys. Teniers dealt with this matter on several occasions. In the present example, he is clearly cr

The Presentation of Jesus in the Temple
Oil on panel. Ca. 1562
Morales, Luis de

In this picture in the Prado, Morales combines elements that allude to both moments, -the Presentation in the Temple and the Purification of the Virgin-, although it might appear at first that he inclines towards the Purification, since only the group formed by the Holy Family and the priest Simeon, together with the two young pigeons carried by the woman in the foreground, are taken from the Gosp

Albani, Francesco

Francesco Albani was a much favoured pupil of Annibale Carracci. His success was partially due to mythological paintings such as The toilet of Venus (P1) and The judgement of Paris (P2), whose refined and lyrical view of nature helped disseminate the classical ideals of the Carracci`s landscapes.Albani`s The judgement of Paris, c.1650-60, shows the shepherd prince admiring the beauty of three godd
