Oil on canvas. 1675 - 1700
Anonymous

This canvas by a late 17th-century painter is part of a group of four works, all at the Museo del Prado (P191, P3196, P3197 and P3198), that express the idea of the Elements through motives drawn from classical mythology. According to R. López Torrijos (1985), Water is embodied here by Ocean’s sister and wife, Thetis, who was queen of the seas. A crown and scepter underline her royal charac

Still Life with Fish and Turtle
Oil on canvas. Ca. 1680
Recco, Giuseppe

Giuseppe Recco, a member of one of the most famous families of Neapolitan still-life painters in the seventeenth century, was born in Naples on 12 July 1634. His vast output was consistently high in quality and is characterised by a marked cultural eclecticism, taking in a number of different still-life styles, from Spanish to northern European to Roman, with an unusual iconographic versatility.In

The great charm of this still life has evidently long been apparent to lovers of painting, since it is first recorded in the collection of Gaspar de Haro, later VII Marqués del Carpio (1651), who was one of the most distinguished aristocratic picture collectors of his day. Its size is clearly a factor; the intimate scale is particularly alluring. Indeed, the appeal to collectors of small st

The format and the dimensions of this picture and the high horizon line allow for rendition of a large landscape, which displays what are generally regarded as the defining characteristics of Patinir`s style. Like the Rest on the Flight into Egypt (P1611), the foreground figures are shown on top of a hill in a scale suited to the proportions of the panel. On the much lower level of the middle grou

Saint James the Greater

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 combination of tangible reality with a visionary and spiritual atmosphere was one of the features that explain the fascination exerted by Murillo’s works, many of them extremely popular, which is why the Catholic Church used his images for the following three centuries. A fair number of his themes are not specifically described in the Bible and some, such as the scenes from the childhood of Ch

A model similar to this one appears in the Crown of Thorns at the Royal Museum of Fine Arts in Antwerp, specifically, the figure who is supposed to place the crown of thorns on Christ´s head. The figure in the present work differs from it in the presence of a silver shell on his hat and a crossbow-shaped broach on his suit. Recent studies consider it a copy made during the second half of the sixte

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

In the past various authors have expressed their scepticism about the attribution of the painting to Rembrandt. However, the Rembrandt Research Project includes it in the Corpus of 1986 as an original work, and this is supported by the technical study conducted at the Museo del Prado that year. As for the signature, the unsteadiness of the stroke and, above all, the yellow colour make it dubious.

Abundance, personified by Ceres, goddess of fertility and agriculture, sits in front of a thicket of reeds at the edge of a forest. She has adorned her hair with wheat spikes -her attribute- and bears the horn of plenty under her left arm. Earth sits at her feet, offering her one of her fruits, she is personified by Flora, goddess of the earth and also of spring, which explains the flowers in her

This painting, together with Still life with Fish, Candle, Artichokes, Crabs and Shrimp, also in the Prado (P1621), is very likely identical to a picture first documented when it was in the Spanish royal collection in Madrid in 1666. The infrared image of the painting reveals some underdrawing in the shells, along the contour of the plate (near the signature), in the beaks of some of the birds and

This panel inlaid with mother-of-pearl executed in New Spain is part of a group of twenty-four pieces that narrate the capture of Mexico.
