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

Judith at the Banquet of Holofernes
Oil on canvas. 1634
Rembrandt (Rembrandt Harmensz. Van Rijn)

In the past various authors have expressed their scepticism about the attribution of the painting to Rembrandt. However, the Rembrandt Research Project includes it in the Corpus of 1986 as an original work, and this is supported by the technical study conducted at the Museo del Prado that year. As for the signature, the unsteadiness of the stroke and, above all, the yellow colour make it dubious.

Diptych with 42 Monumental Views of Spanish Cities
Oil on paper, panel, tin plate. 1835 - 1839
Pérez Villaamil y Duguet, Genaro

Genaro Pérez Villaamil (El Ferrol, 1807-Madrid, 1854) can be considered the most significant and influential Spanish Romantic landscape painter and an artist who had an intense interest, characteristic of that period, in depictions of cities and their monuments.The small size of the tin plates on which theses scenes are painted allowed Villaamil to work from the motif, as he generally did w

Battle between Hercules and the Amazons
Pencil, Grey-brown ink on brown paper. 1544 - 1550
Cambiaso, Luca

The encounter between Hercules and the Amazons, the ninth of his Labors, arose from his assignment to seize the girdle of Queen Hippolyte of the Amazons. Admete, the daughter of Eurystheus, had expressed a desire to possess it, and Hercules therefore set off on a mission to satisfy her desire. The girdle was the ensign of the Queen´s power and she had received it as a present from Ares. The Amazon

The vessel, similar to O44, is formed by three fragments of agate and five enamelled gold mounts. The body is an ancient piece of stone with a broad gold mount on the edge decorated with an enamelled pattern of white and black foliage linked by festoons of blue ribbons. Resting on this is an eagle’s head in black and white enamel, with a gold beak and two rubies for eyes. A thick knop supports the

An ovate vessel in the form of an urn. It has a smooth pyriform body with a double moulding on the shoulder, a neck with a concave profile, and a round mouth.

The stone, cracked since ancient times, is held by a mount of pierced and chased gold forming a net, with

Royel, Jean (?)

Vessel similar to O38, except that the cover is missing. The precious stones on the jasper ring are complete, and the remaining cameos consist of a Roman-style bust of a crowned man and a woman’s head by the same maker, both of cornelian; another head, perhaps Hercules, in chalcedony; and a male bust crowned with laurel, with another female bust in the background, of agate, similar to a cameo pres

Vessel made up of two pieces of chalcedony and an enamelled gold mount. The body is formed by a deep hemispherical base and a smaller lid of the same shape surmounted by a delicate pyramidal openwork structure of pointed leaves, pavilions, fruits and rows of beads.

This vessel had a pair, now lost (I1416), which must have been very similar and by the same hand as O37, the work of the silversmith Pierre Ladoyreau or Ladoireau, who made part of the silver furnishings at Versailles. It comprises two pieces of red jasper and two large mounts with twenty cameos. The body is in the form of a bowl with a diminished arch profile, a round mouth, and a lobulated ring

The pair of a vessel stolen in 1918, this is one of the few pieces which still preserve work by Pierre Ladoyreau or Ladoireau, one of the great master craftsmen of the 17th century in France, who designed furnishing and bronzes for the palace and gardens of Versailles. It is made up of two pieces of stone, sixteen cameos and three large enamelled gold mounts. The decoration of the mounts, similar

Agate vase with a central band of cameos

Ladoireau, Pierre (?); Belle, Josias (?)

Described in the 1689 inventory of the Dauphin’s Cabinet as a vase “in the antique style”, this is an example of the prevailing fashion in the 1680s. The decoration of enamelled leaves in the adornments combines floral motifs covered in enamelling of the same metallic colour with a variety of stones, an aesthetic solution deriving from collections of engravings. The use of cameos serves to lend th
