Oil on panel. Ca. 1880
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.

Masinissa Mourning Over the Death of Sophonisba (?)
Oil on canvas. XVII century
Finoglia, Paolo Domenico

Within the large series of paintings dedicated to the history of Rome, this work and Meleager’s Hunt (P2320) belong to a small group of scenes from mythology and the history of Antiquity. This is undoubtedly the most mysterious group in the series -so much so, that the subject matter of some of its paintings has yet to be identified today. Moreover, neither the significance of this group as a whol

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

A Sybil
Oil on canvas. Ca. 1632
Velázquez, Diego Rodríguez de Silva y

The first known reference to this work dates from 1746, when an inventory of paintings at the La Granja Palace was drawn up. There, it is attributed to Velázquez and identified as a likeness of his wife, Juana, whose father was the painter, Francisco Pacheco. It also specifies that she is holding a board. The linking of anonymous portraits to the lives of their authors was frequent in the 1

Roman Athletes
Oil on canvas. Ca. 1640
Falcone, Aniello

This work belongs to a group from the History of Rome series for the Buen Retiro Palace. Dedicated to depictions of Roman public pastimes, the group includes athletes, gladiators, chariots, animal fights, mock sea battles and so on. Following initial doubts, the Buen Retiro Palace was conceived as a place of leisure, where it would be possible to forget the worries associated with running the mona

Self-Portrait
Oil on canvas. 1884
Domingo Marqués, Francisco

From an early age, Domingo displayed considerable skill as a portraitist. In this self-portrait, he is seated in profile, standing out against a dark background. In contrast to the intimate, introspective nature of most self-portraits, here the artist clearly had a larger public in mind; this is evident in the format and the clothing, and also in the emphasis on the tools of the painter’s professi

Village Kitchen
Oil on panel. Ca. 1632
Ostade, Adriaen Van

This work belongs to the so-called peasant interiors, one of the new genres of painting that emerged and developed in Flanders and Holland in the early seventeenth century. In Houbraken and in early inventories they are described as een boertje (a little peasant) or as toeback rookerchen (tobacco smokers). The consolidation and appreciation of this genre was fostered by the satirical and moralisin

The Genius of Painting
Oil on canvas. Ca. 1650
Mehus, Lieven

Born in Flanders, Livio Mehus moved to Milan at a young age and is thus often considered an artist of the Italian school. He is recorded in Rome at the age of fourteen and later in Florence, Lucca and around Genoa. He also worked successively in Piamonte and Lombardy. There is ample documentation of his activity as a painter of frescoes and oils, an expert on northern Italian painting and a restor

Funeral Rites for a Roman Emperor
Oil on canvas. 1634 - 1635
Domenichino (Domenico Zampieri)

This is the best-documented painting in the entire History of Rome cycle. It is also one of the works that raises the most questions about aspects as important as its authorship and its subject matter. Giambattista Passeri narrated how Domenichino was contracted by the Count of Monterrey, who became Spain’s Viceroy to Naples in 1634, and how Monterrey protected this painter when he was threatened

Arco, Alonso del

Born to an Austrian Catholic family, Juan Everardo Nithard (Falkenstein, 1607-Rome, 1681)became a Jesuit. His solid grounding in theology led Emperor Ferdinand III to appoint him confessor to his children, Leopold and Mariana, and when the latter married Philip IV, he accompanied her to Madrid in the same role. Widowed, Mariana became reagent for her son, Charles, until he came of age, and during

This evangelical episode is divided into two overlapping horizontal zones joined by the dove, which symbolizes the Holy Ghost. On the earthly plane, Christ, nude but for his loincloth, is framed by a red cloak, which is the liturgical color of sacrifice and martyrdom. On the right, Saint John the Baptist appears. He wears a camel skin and, next to him, there is an axe in a tree trunk, which allude

Emblem of Death
Oil on panel. 1635 - 1640
Steenwijck, Pieter Van

Steenwijck brings to the vanitas a genre in which he specialised, according to the surviving inventories -the compositional structure, scheme, colour range and lighting characteristic of the so-called monochrome banketjes or monochrome still lifes of Willem Claesz. Heda (P2754, P2655 and P2756) and Pieter Claesz. (P2753). Accordingly, the objects are arranged on a simple wooden table that is half

Depictions of painting galleries became popular in the Netherlands at the beginning of the 17th century. The exhibition of paintings and other artistic or natural objects was originally a way of manifesting the high social standing of an eminently bourgeois class with a strong desire to ennoble itself. In many cases, the paintings did not rigorously reflect the client’s collection, but served inst

Oil on canvas. 1634
Carducho, Vicente

This painting celebrates the freeing of the Swiss town of Constance from its besiegement by Swedish troops under General Horn, who sought to cut off communication between imperial troops and Spanish soldiers at La Valtellina and the Duchy of Milan. Along with The Storming of Rheinfelden (P637) and The Capture of Breisach (P859), this is one of the three paintings at the Hall of Realms that commemo

Infra-red reflectography conducted for this catalogue reveals no underdrawing, which could suggest that this painting is a copy, possibly a workshop replica of the signed original in the Musée des Beaux-Arts in Bordeaux. There used to be another very similar version of this original in the Hoogsteder Gallery in The Hague.The inscription Rf. is an apocryphal signature possibly intended, as V

Orrente, Pedro de

Orrente here adheres to his practice of using religious scenes as a pretext to paint landscapes influenced by the famous works of the Bassano family. In this work he depictsthe 4th -century saint in his penitential retreat. Saint John Chrysostom is depicted nude and with long hair, hiding himself away from any occasional visitor who might come across his retreat.

Queen Mariana of Austria

Carreño de Miranda, Juan

After the death of Philip IV in 1665, his widow Mariana (1634-1696) became regent. She is depicted here as both widow and regent in the Hall of Mirrors in the Alcázar in Madrid. The writing implements on the desk allude to her responsibilities as ruler. The overt inclusion of the royal palace into the royal portrait is one of the features that characterises the court portrait after Vel&aacu

Born in 1786 in New Spain, María Francisca de la Gándara y Cardona was the widow of General Fñelix María Calleja del Rey, the last Spanish Viceroy of Mexico. She died in Valencia in 1855. She sits across from the viewer and looks directly at him. In her right hand she holds a breviary, marking the page where she intends to continue her interrupted reading. Her left hand
