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

Joseph and the Wife of Putiphar
Oil on canvas. Ca. 1555
Tintoretto, Jacopo Robusti

Joseph is a handsome and virtuous slave falsely accused of rape by his master´s wife, whose advances he has rejected. He is imprisoned, but eventually raised to the highest office by Pharaoh (Exodus: 39). Joseph and the Wife of Putiphar and Susannah and the Elders (P386) can be understood as parables of righteousness threatened and preserved, but here -as was usual for artists of the Renaissance a

Palmaroli y González, Vicente

A young woman seems to gaze dreamily at a canvas on an easel, over which a large cloth has been partially draped, and at a sheaf of prints on a stool. The Japanesestyle clothes, the bright colours and the cluttered scene - highly decorative in effect- clearly point to the influence of Fortuny’s orientalism on Palmorali’s work.

Surrounded by angels, the Holy Family, with Saint Elizabeth and the infant Saint John, receive Saint Louis, King of France. The background combines architecture and curtains. This work is organized like a large stage set, using the infant Saint John and an adjacent lamb to invite the viewer to participate.

On June 5, 1625 the Dutch governor of Breda, Justinus van Nassau, surrendered the keys of that city to Ambrosio Spínola, the Genoese general commanding the Spanish tercios (a group of soldiers that included pikemen, swordsmen and musketeers) of Flanders. Breda`s extraordinary strategic importance made it one of the most disputed cities in the Spanish monarchy`s prolonged war against the Uni

Mor, Anthonis

Atribuido a Antonio Moro, carece de inscripciones o de un escudo que permita identificar a esta dama joven, retratada por el pintor de Utrecht con el porte que corresponde a la nobleza de su cuna como en todos sus retratos. La muestra de pie y de más de medio cuerpo, en posición de tres cuartos. Como en otras ocasiones, la dirección de la mirada, desviada de la de la cabeza, no se dirige frontalme

In this portrait, Pedro Benítez sits informally on a chair, resting his left arm on its back while gazing frankly and directly at the viewer with whom he establishes an empathetic relationship. He is dressed in the fashion of the reign of Ferdinand VII, with a marvellous cravat emerging from his vest and a book in his right hand. Beside him, standing, is his daughter María de la Cruz

Bayeu y Subías, Ramón

A handsome dandy gallantly offers fruit to a seated lady accompanied by her maid. This seductive, erotic gesture arouses the young woman’s emotions while in the background a cloaked majo jealously observes the aristocratic delicacy of the amorous encounter. This canvas is a close copy of a preparatory sketch by Francisco Bayeu, Ramón’s brother, which was subsequently included in the work Th

Tintoretto, Domenico

The two canvases P382 y P384 are by the same artist and were probably intended as a pair. Their meaning can be gleaned from L’arte de Cenni (1616), the most important treatise on gestures of its day, written by the jurist Giovanni Bonifacio. According to Bonifacio, revealing a bare breast signifies sincerity, “as the breast is the location of the heart and when referring to speaking truly and sinc

Titian (Tiziano Vecellio) (And Workshop)

Previously catalogued as Portrait of Titian’s Daughter Lavinia Vecellio by Veronese, this canvas of an unknown sitter was painted in Titian’s studio. The lively face, probably painted by Titian himself, contrasts with the routine treatment of the clothing, which is the work of assistants.

Inmerso ya en el academicismo neoclásico, el artista retrató a esta dama desconocida, cuya edad ronda la treintena, con su habilidad acostumbrada. Se trata de un busto de mujer joven que dirige su mirada al espectador con expresión serena, rostro agradable de facciones nobles, piel tersa y suave colorido.

Concepción Remisa de Moret was the wife of Segismundo Moret y Quintana, a famous nineteenth-century Spanish writer, politician and landowner whose portrait -also by Madrazo- is in the Prado Museum collection as well (P04466). The purity of lines and delicate rendering of this work reveal the influence that the French painter, Jean Auguste Dominique Ingres (1780-1867), had on Federico de Mad

La composición, no exenta de teatralidad, está formada por tres grupos i

Master Of The Visitation Of Palencia

This panel is by an anonymous Hispano-Flemish painter active in Burgos and Palencia who was influenced by Diego de la Cruz and the Master of Los Balbases. His name derives from his best known work, the Altarpiece of the Visitation in Palencia Cathedral. The apostle can be identified by the inscription on his halo and his attributes: the pilgrim’s staff, water gourd, hat and cockle shells. In his l
