Bathsheba at her Bath
Oil on canvas. 1696 - 1698
Giordano, Luca

Giordano ofrece una versión amable del pasaje bíblico que narra el encuentro del rey David y Betsabé, dando relevancia a los elementos exóticos, anecdóticos o decorativos, donde solo la sensualidad de Betsabé remite a la escabrosa historia narrada en el Libro de Samuel (II, 11: 2-27). David, acecha en el segundo plano, pintado con trazos ligeros y rápidos, construidos directamente sobre la prepara

Velázquez, Diego Rodríguez de Silva y

Of the people with whom Velázquez must have had contact on a daily basis at the palace, many would have been high functionaries or skilled servants of the court. His own social aspirations included becoming a member of that professional group, which he eventually joined, and he made portraits of some of them, including two now at the Museo del Prado: Diego del Corral, shown here, and his wi

The Chronological Series of the Kings of Spain was a museum project planned in 1847 by José de Madrazo to adorn four of the new rooms at the Real Museo de Pinturas (Royal Museum of Paintings), then under his direction. At the height of the confrontation between the supporters of Isabella II and the Carlists, who denied the sovereign’s right to occupy the throne because she was a woman, the

Philip IV
Oil on canvas. Ca. 1653
Velázquez, Diego Rodríguez de Silva y

This image can be identified as that of a king and as a portrait of Philip IV on the basis of others of the monarch. In fact, nothing about the clothes or the sitter`s actions suggests his royal status except the easily recognisable physical features of the Habsburg dynasty, in particular the prominent chin.This portrait and the one who is in the National Gallery gave rise to a large number of ver

Juanes, Juan de (Vicente Juan Masip)

Purchased by Charles IV, this portrait entered the royal collections in 1814 and was already listed in the Museo del Prado’s catalogs in 1854 as a work by Juan de Juanes. The identity of the sitter has varied since José de Madrazo suggested it was Luis Castelví, Lord of Carlet. Today, lacking unanimous agreement, it is generally accepted as a likeness of the Lord of Bicorp y Quera, L

Saint Lawrence / Saint Hilary
Oil on panel. 1559
Correa de Vivar, Juan

The Museo del Prado’s collections include an important group of paintings by Juan de Correa de Vivar, an artist based in Toledo who must have been born at the beginning of the 16th century in the town of Mascaraque and died in the Imperial City in 1566. In total, these are nearly forty works from the former Museo Nacional de la Trinidad. Like many other 16th-century Spanish religious painters, Cor

Francisco Fernández de Córdoba wears a biretta and ecclesiastical robes. He was the son of the second Count of Cabra and of Doña María Hurtado de Mendoza-Luna. He was the Bishop of Oviedo from 1526 and of Palencia from 1536, and died in 1539. Some verses in Latin identify the sitter and the painter who was “inspector” of Ferdinand the Catholic’s painters. The frame is o

Saint James the Greater with Donors in Prayer / Saint Sebastian
Oil on panel. 1532
Coecke Van Aelst, Pieter

The Apostle protects a group of male donors wearing the habit of the Dominican Order. In the background, angels bear souls to Heaven. Characteristically, Coecke conveys the movement of clothes and hair -here, in the figure of the Apostle- in order to stress the dynamic nature of the action. This is the left panel of the Triptych of the Last Judgement; the central panel is at the Escorial, whilst t

Portrait of a Knight of the Order of Santiago
Oil on canvas. 1601
Pantoja de la Cruz, Juan

Pantoja de la Cruz continued the type of court portrait formulated by Sánchez Coello in the mid-sixteenth century. The severe, distant image projected by the sitter, possibly a servant in the Alcázar in Madrid, is characteristic of portraiture of this period, contrasting with the expressive intensity of El Greco’s Toledan male sitters. Signed and dated.

The illustrious soldier, Antonio Ricardos y Carrillo, is depicted by Goya in the battle dress of a Captain General, with the sash of the Order of Carlos III and the plaque of that same order on his dress coat. The scallop of the Order of Santiago on his lapel and the triple braid on his cuffs complete the symbols of this general´s high rank. The portrait was made shortly after his death, as he was

The Martyrdom of Saint James

Zurbarán, Francisco de

The apostle Saint James is shown kneeling with his hands together in prayer, offering his neck up to the sword of the executioner whoprepares to decapitate him. Standing before the apostle, wearing a curious sort of headdress, is the authority who decreed his death. Behind Saint James are soldiers with halberds and various other figures who probably represent Herod Agrippa and the Jews who, accord

Born to a noble family in Toledo, sister Jerónima de la Fuente Yáñez was a Franciscan nun at the convent of Santa Isabel in her native city. In 1620, at the age of sixty-six, she sailed from Seville to the Philippines, where she founded and became the first abbess of the convent of Santa Clara de la Concepción in Manila. There, she died in 1630. The portrait was undoubt
