Mariquiña de Valle-Inclán
Oil on canvas. Ca. 1928
Echevarría Zuricalday, Juan de
Mariquiña de Valle-Inclán
Oil on canvas. Ca. 1928
Echevarría Zuricalday, Juan de

This depiction of the fourth daughter of the famous Galician writer Ramón María del Valle-Inclán is a good example of the small-format portraits of close friends that so notably differ from Echevarría’s celebrated portrait gallery of representatives of the Generation of 98. The Gerstenmaier Collection still includes the portrait of Kukuru, Mariquiña’s dog, a canv

Lady with a Yellow Flower
Oil on panel. Ca. 1567
Cronenburch, Adriaen Van

These four portraits of women, two double ones and two single ones (P02074, P02075 and P02076) presented standing and down to kneelevel, use the same architectural setting. The series is given visual unity by the use of a central niche and two more, barely visible ones at the sides, separated by masonry pillars and decorated with small lions’ heads in the centre.This use of shared elements is prob

Father Cabanillas
Oil on canvas. 1689 - 1693
Coello, Claudio

This likeness of the Franciscan clergyman is a significant example of elongated bust portraits that are quiet customary in the Western figurative tradition. Such works allow a closer approach to the model’s essential features, reducing but not eliminating accessory elements such as his clothing and a summary depiction of the surrounding space. Rather than overly limiting information on the protago

Octagonal Still Life with Bunches of Grapes
Oil on canvas. 1646
Espinosa, Juan de
Octagonal Still Life with Bunches of Grapes
Oil on canvas. 1646
Espinosa, Juan de

The octagonal format of this painting makes it unique among still lifes in seventeenth-century Spain (and, indeed, the rest of Europe), in which rectangular supports predominated. This peculiarity has important consequences in terms of the compositional organisation of the piece and accentuates the work´s status as a witty game and an occasion to display the artist´s technical abilities. The objec

The Painter's Family

Jordaens, Jacques
The Painter's Family
Oil on canvas. 1621 - 1622
Jordaens, Jacques

This attractive group portrait, one of the most interesting of the 17th-century Dutch school on account of its bourgeois spirit with aristocratic leanings, is an extraordinary skilful depiction of the artist´s close family. Jordaens portrays himself with his wife Catharina van Noort and their first child Elizabeth, born on 26 June 1617, whose age allows us to date the work approximately. Cat

Plate with Plums and Morello Cherries
Oil on canvas. Ca. 1631
Hamen y León, Juan Van Der
Plate with Plums and Morello Cherries
Oil on canvas. Ca. 1631
Hamen y León, Juan Van Der

Juan van der Hamen y León´s output alternates between compositionally complex still lifes and works that are smaller in size and constructed more simply, such as this canvas. It depicts a pewter, possibly silver, plate holding a small pile of plums (or sloes), and cherries. As is habitual in this type of work, the plate is placed in the close foreground, sitting on the edge of a stone ledge

Olympus or The Triumph of Venus

Tiepolo, Giovanni Battista
Olympus or The Triumph of Venus
Oil on canvas. 1761 - 1764
Tiepolo, Giovanni Battista

This is a sketch for a no-longer extant painting on canvas intended to decorate a ceiling in a building of the imperial court of Russia, whose memory is preserved in an engraving made by Giambattista´s youngest son Lorenzo. The engraving forms a set with another three, two of which were also made by Lorenzo, on the basis of original works by his father, as part of the same commission. The en

Danaë and the Shower of Gold

Danaë and the Shower of Gold
Oil on canvas. 1560 - 1565
Titian (Tiziano Vecellio)

The first Poesie presented to Prince Philip were Danaë (1553, The Wellington Collection) and Venus and Adonis (1554, Museo del Prado, P422), versions of other previous works, but endowed with all the prestige of the commissioning party. In turn, these works became models for numerous replicas (Danaë receiving the Golden Rain, 1560-65, Museo del Prado, P425).Danaë depicts the moment

María Luisa of Parma, Princess of Asturias

Mengs, Anton Raphael
María Luisa of Parma, Princess of Asturias
Oil on canvas. Ca. 1765
Mengs, Anton Raphael

Mengs painted these portraits of the heirs to the Spanish throne -the prince and princess of Asturias, Carlos de Borbón and Maria Luisa of Parma- on the occasion of their wedding. As the daughter of Philip I, Duke of Parma, and Louise Isabelle of France, and thus granddaughter of Kings Philip V and Louis XV, Maria Luisa was Queen Consort of Spain between 1788 and 1808. She wears a light-col

Salome
Oil on canvas. Ca. 1550

Salome
Oil on canvas. Ca. 1550
Titian (Tiziano Vecellio)

Salome, an Edomite princess born of Herodias and the wife of Herod Philip I, carries the severed head of Saint John the Baptist on a tray, illustrating a Bible passage from Matthew (14:1–11) and Mark (6:22–28). Titian had already painted this story in 1516 (Galleria Doria Pamphilj, Rome), with a pyramidal composition that showed Salome bearing the saint’s head on a tray held chest high, and a serv

Young Girl Seated in a Landscape

Young Girl Seated in a Landscape
Oil on canvas. 1842
Tegeo Díaz, Rafael

Sitting on a stone bench beside a landscape that disappears into the distance, the girl holds various roses on a handkerchief in her lap. Her hat lies on the ground. Lost in thought, she gazes out of the painting. Her pale complexion and large black eyes are notable. The painter manages to capture the young girl´s fragility and smallness, as well as her expression, which reflects a mood somewhere

Philip V

Meléndez, Miguel Jacinto
Philip V
Oil on canvas. 1718 - 1722
Meléndez, Miguel Jacinto

This portrait of Philip V is based on a prototype devised by Meléndez in the 1720s. It combines a French model with the use of broad, zig-zagging brushstrokes typical of the Madrid Baroque style. The monarch´s notably idealised face is extremely delicately painted, with the paler tone of the broad brow suggesting the illumination of intelligence. Small highlights on the nose and lips emphas

Still Life with Cardoon, Francolin, Grapes and Irises

Ramírez, Felipe
Still Life with Cardoon, Francolin, Grapes and Irises
Oil on canvas. 1628
Ramírez, Felipe

Because this work is signed and dated, it reveals the existence of a painter by the name of Felipe Ramírez, although art historians know virtually nothing else about him. This lovely example of his work makes it clear, however, that he continued the tradition of the variety of still life cultivated by Juan Sánchez Cotán (1560-1627), an artist who is considered the most origina

Saint Dominic of Guzmán

Maíno, Fray Juan Bautista

On 14 February 1612 Juan Bautista Maíno signed the contract to execute the paintings for the monastery church of San Pedro Mártir in Toledo. Maíno agreed to a period of eight months to make the paintings, which had to portray the scenes and episodes specified by the prior of the monastery. Despite the agreement reached in the contract, the paintings were not completed until De

Basket of Flowers
Oil on canvas. 1668 - 1670
Arellano, Juan de

Resting on a stone base, an openwork wicker basket full of flowers is the subject of this painting. The flowers represent an enormous variety of species, enabling a notably rich range of colours and forms, even when the entire arrangement is structured symmetrically. Among the manifold varieties are lilies, tulips, hydrangeas, roses, anemones and carnations, some of which -like the tulips- would h

The 12th Marchioness of Villafranca painting her Husband

Goya y Lucientes, Francisco de

María Tomasa Palafox (1780-1835), Marchioness of Villafranca, is shown wearing a white empire-style dress and sitting on a red silk damask armchair, with her feet on a cushion. She is painting a portrait of her husband, Francisco de Borja Álvarez de Toledo y Gonzaga, XI Marquis of Villafranca. The Marchioness received an enlightened education from her mother, the Countess of Montijo.

Manuela Goicoechea y Galarza
Oil on copperplate. 1805
Goya y Lucientes, Francisco de

This portrait belongs to a series of seven miniatures painted on copper. Unique within Goya’s oeuvre, they depict his son Javier and his relatives by marriage on the occasion of Javier’s marriage to Gumersinda, daughter of the drapers Miguel Martín de Goicoechea and Juana Galarza. This miniature depicts Gumersinda’s sister, Manuela Goicoechea y Galarza.
