Saint James the Pilgrim
Oil on panel. 1496 - 1497
Flandes, Juan de

Saint James the Elder is depicted as a pilgrim, with his customary crozier or staff, although here it lacks the customary calabash for water. He wears a cape and a hat with the scallop shell that symbolizes the pilgrimage to Compostela, just as the Greek cross and palm did for pilgrims to Jerusalem and the double key and Speedwell for those headed to Rome. While the origin of the scallop shell rem

Garland of Flowers with a Landscape
Oil on canvas. 1652
Arellano, Juan de

Flower painting experienced its greatest development in the Netherlands -there were both Flemish and Dutch schools- and in the different regions of Italy. Both Northern and Mediterranean artists produced works that became known throughout Europe -especially in Spain, where they had a decisive influence on local artists. The present painting and its pendant (P2507) magnificently exemplify the depen

Equestrian Portrait of the Duke of Lerma
Oil on canvas. 1603
Rubens, Peter Paul

Felipe III´s favorite, Francisco de Sandoval y Rojas, Marquis of Denia and First Duke of Lerma is shown as chief of the Spanish Armies. Wearing half armor, he rides a white steed and carries a ruler´s staff. The scallop of the Knights of Saint James at his neck is the only decorative element in this portrait, whose decidedly military orientation is reinforced by the cavalry battle in t

Portrait of a Knight of the Order of Santiago
Oil on panel. Ca. 1560
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

The Birth of Venus

Esquivel, Antonio María
The Birth of Venus
Oil on canvas. 1842
Esquivel, Antonio María

The delicate figure of Venus, goddess of love and beauty, rises out of the waves on a large scallop shell supported by naiads crowned with seaweed. Using a refined technique, Esquivel respects the classical canons of proportion and ideal beauty. The composition is inspired by the Venus pudica, a Classical sculpture of which Esquivel himself had a cast. It was regarded in the nineteenth century as

General Antonio Ricardos
Oil on canvas. 1793
Goya y Lucientes, Francisco de

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

All three of his previous spouses, María Antonia of Bourbon (1784-1806), María Isabel of Braganza (1797-1818) and María Josefa Amalia of Saxony (1805-1829), had died without offspring.The more than half-length likeness shows her at the age of twenty-four in a

Saint James the Pilgrim
Oil on panel. 1455 - 1465
Baró, Bartomeu

The image of the titular saint seated on a richly decorated Gothic throne was the central effigy of many Spanish late mediaeval altarpieces. Here we see a hieratic Saint James with his pilgrim’s attributes enthroned on a monumental cathedra in grisaille, adorned with lively marginalia. Kneeling at his feet, the figure of the donor may evoke a desire to go on a pilgrimage to Compostela or simply de

The Baptism of Christ
Oil on panel. 1575 - 1580
Schwarz, Christoph

Formerly attributed to Lambert Sustris, this panel is now given to the German painter Schwarz. Both these northern European artists worked in Venice in Titian’s studio (Schwarz between 1570 and 1573), specialising in landscape backgrounds. The work of Schwarz, the younger of the two, reveals the influence of both Tintoretto and Veronese.

Saint James the Greater
Oil on canvas. 1631
Ribera, Jusepe de, lo Spagnoletto

This work was, until recently, believed to depict Saint James. This was largely due to its description, by Friar Francisco de los Santos in his Descripción breve del Monasterio de S. Lorenzo el Real del Escorial (1657). However, Friar Francisco de los Santos also noted that the apostle is not represented according to customary iconography, for he is depicted in the manner he would have dres

The Apostle James

Murillo, Bartolomé Esteban
The Apostle James
Oil on canvas. Ca. 1655
Murillo, Bartolomé Esteban

The Apostle James can be identified by the pilgrim’s staff in his right hand and the cockle shell on his breast. Standing firmly before a dark background, his face and powerful body indicate the lessons that Murillo and fellow Spanish painters absorbed from the work of Ribera.

Saint James the Greater
Oil on canvas. 1630 - 1635
Ribera, Jusepe de, lo Spagnoletto

Series of Apostles became very popular during the Counter-reformation; they were usually half-length figures against a neutral background, holding their iconographical attributes. One of the most important series is the one that Ribera painted around 1630. It is mentioned for the first time in the Royal Collection towards the end of the eighteenth century and is made up of paintings of varying qua
