Torre Sola. Montornès
Oil on canvas. 1914 - 1921
Mir y Trinxet, Joaquín

This landscape was painted on the outskirts of Montornès del Vallès, a village in the Vallès Oriental (Barcelona) where Mir lived between 1913 and 1921. Based on his direct observation of nature, the artist offers a very personal interpretation of its rich colours and light, conveyed through a notably broad, free brushstroke.

The Embarkation of Saint Paula
Oil on canvas. Ca. 1639
Claude (Lorrain, Byname Of Claude Gellée)

A noble Roman widow and mother of five children, Saint Paula decided to retreat to the desert and abandon her worldly ways in favour of a life of prayer and penitence. In 285 AD she abandoned Rome with her son, Eustace, and moved to Antioch, where she joined Saint Jerome to share a hermit’s life. Claude Lorrain’s painting depicts her departure, offering an imaginary recreation of the port of Ostia

View of the Castle in Gaucín
Oil on canvas. 1849
Pérez Villaamil y Duguet, Genaro

This view of the so-called Eagle’s Castle in Gaucín (Malaga), with the valley of the Genal River and the Plain of Gibraltar in the background, is similar to an earlier view by Villaamil’s master, the Scottish artist David Roberts (1796-1864). The touches of evening light emphasise this monumental vision of the mountains of Ronda, interpreted with a picturesque and evocative grandeur charact

Aún no se ha identificado a su autor; pero en algunos aspectos coincide con las obras salidas del taller de Joos van Cleve, que también colaboró con Patinir representando figuras para sus escenas de paisaje, igual que hizo Quintin Massys en Las tentaciones de San Antonio Abad (P1615). Por lo que se refiere al paisaje, las obras de van Cleve están mucho más trabajadas en superficie que las de Patin

Rest on the Flight into Egypt
Oil on panel. 1518 - 1520
Patinir, Joachim

The Virgin and Child are placed on a hill in the centre of the foreground, isolated from the rest of the figures, as in the Berlin panel (Gemäldegalerie ). The dark forest here begins in the middle ground behind the Virgin, merging with the background landscape to one side of the main figure. The countryside to the right, with the motifs of the farm, the village in the middle ground and the c

View of the Bridge at Martorell
Oil on canvas. 1787
Sánchez, Mariano Ramón

Trained from childhood at the Academy of San Fernando in Madrid, Mariano Sánchez specialized in landscapes and views. Contemporary documents reveal also a talent for miniatures and portraits, which took him to Lisbon in the service of the King of Portugal. In 1781, King Charles III commissioned him to paint a series of 118 vistas of ports, bays, islands, and arsenals in Spain. In 1803, for

Don Quixote at the Inn

Don Quixote at the Inn
Oil on canvas. Ca. 1720
Iriarte, Valero

This work belongs to a series inspired by passages from Don Quixote portrayed with the same satirical humour as in Cervantes´text. The famous knight, seated at a table, is served by innkeepers in a parody of what would have been a court ceremony. Similarities have been pointed out with paintings of this type executed by the Madrid-based French artist Michel-Ange Houasse (1680-1730).

The Surrender of Jülich
Oil on canvas. 1634 - 1635
Leonardo, Jusepe

The capitulation of the Rhenish city of Jülich was one of the most outstanding events at the beginning of the Thirty Years War (1618-1648). Occupied by Maurice of Nassau’s French troops since 1610, Jülich surrendered to an army led by the Marquis of Los Balbases, General Ambrosio de Spínola, who would later triumph at Breda. This event took place after the truce established in 160

Saint John the Baptist and the Franciscan Heinrich von Werl
Oil on oak panel. 1438
Campin, Robert

An inscription in gothic letters identifies the sitter and dates the work: "In the year 1438, I painted this effigy of Master Heinrich von Werl, Doctor of Cologne". A Provincial of the Franciscan Order in that German city beginning in 1432, Werl was full Professor of Theology and quite a famous preacher. On a trip to Tournai, he was able to contact the painter and have himself portrayed inside a r

The Foundation of Santa Maria Maggiore in Rome. The Patrician recounts his Dream to the Pope
Oil on canvas. 1664 - 1665
Murillo, Bartolomé Esteban

This painting and its companion, The Patrician’s Dream (P994), are among Murillo’s most renowned works. The two arched works were intended to hang beneath a small dome in the recently remodeled Sevillian church of Santa María la Blanca in 1665, and they narrate the story of the founding of the Roman basilica of Santa Maria Maggiore as succinctly set out in the Roman Breviary’s information a

Herd of Bulls by a River below a Castle
Oil on canvas. 1837
Pérez Villaamil y Duguet, Genaro

A herd of bulls graze beside the backwaters of a quiet river, closely watched by the herdsmen resting on the bank. Farther back, two barges filled with local men prepare to cross the river. The closer of the two is being loaded with sacks of merchandise -possible contraband- carried by two donkeys near a ruined estate. A hill behind the lush woods that border the river is topped by an imposing for

Bramer, Leonaert

The date of this painting has been the subject of critical debate for over a century. The 1889 edition of the Prado catalogue states that it was signed but fails to mention a date. The 1910 version describes it as being signed and dated in 1620. The question is not addressed in subsequent publications until that of 1985, which refers to it as being signed and dated in 1630, the year that is again

Saint Stephen led to his Martyrdom
Oil on panel. 1555 - 1562
Juanes, Juan de (Vicente Juan Masip)

A depiction of the New Testament story (Acts 7, 58) Saint Stephen was condemned to stoning after angering the priests of the Sanhedrin assembly. This scene represents the moment when he is taken out of the city and led to martyrdom, by the executioners at the doors of Jerusalem, just as Christ was, on Calvary. Juanes differs from his father´s style I by accenting the ugliness of the executioners,

The Arch of Titus in Rome
Oil on canvas. 1657
Martínez del Mazo, Juan Bautista

Una figura con la poderosísima personalidad artística de Velázquez no podía por menos que dejar una profunda huella entre los demás pintores de la corte española. Esta influencia se notó especialmente en el retrato, pero también se advierte en otros géneros. Uno de ellos es el paisaje, y como ejemplo tenemos esta obra, que durante mucho tiempo estuvo atribuida al propio pintor sevillano. Se trata

Archduke Alberto de Austria
Oil on canvas. Ca. 1615
Rubens, Peter Paul; Brueghel The Elder, Jan (Jan 'velvet' Brueghel)

Alberto de Austria, the sovereign prince of the Low Countries, is dressed in black and sits under a canopy indicating that this is a court portrait. Unlike the customary indoor portraits, this one is set on a balcony open to a landscape that includes Tervuren Palace, near Brussels. This portrait, and that of his wife, Isabel Clara (P01684), seeks not only to bring out the figure of the Archduke, b

The Mystic Marriage of Saint Catherine, with Saint Ursula and a Donor
Oil on panel. Ca. 1520
Anonymous

This composition retains the structure of traditional triptychs, but the landscape links the three panels together to form a single scene, thus including the pilgrim-donor and Saint Ursula in the Mystic Marriage. The landscape includes scenes relating to the respective figures: walking pilgrims, the martyrdom of Saint Catherine, the Massacre of the Innocents and the Flight into Egypt.

On August 29, 1626, King Philip IV’s painter, Vicente Carducho (ca. 1576-1638), signed a contract for the creation of a cycle of paintings to celebrate the founding of the Carthusian Order by Saint Bruno and its leading members. This colossal undertaking sought to visually narrate numerous episodes from the Carthusians’ history and tradition. It was the most complete commission ever dedicated to t

The Relief of Constance
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
