Spain Insuring the Glory of the Philippines
Oil on canvas. 1888
Luna y Novicio, Juan

The painting, which is now in the collection of Museo Nacional del Prado and on long-term loan to the City Council of Cádiz, is signed “Luna = Paris 1888”. It was completed by the time Luna moved to Paris, after winning a First Class medal for Spoliarium in 1884. It was commissioned by the Overseas Ministry and would be exhibited in the Barcelona Universal Exposition. The figure of Spain we

The Rape of Hippodamia
Oil on canvas. 1636 - 1637
Rubens, Peter Paul (And Workshop)

Like Fortuna (P1674) and the Marriage of Peleus and Thetis (P1634), the Rape of Hippodamia was part of the massive cycle of mythologies designed by Peter Paul Rubens in 1636-37 for the Torre de la Parada, Philip IV´s newly constructed hunting lodge on the outskirts of Madrid. The oil sketch for this picture, now in Brussels (Musees Royaux des Beaux-Arts de Belgique), was largely replicated in the

Saint Francis supported by an Angel
Oil on canvas. Ca. 1607
Gentileschi, Orazio

The subject of the angelic consolation of Saint Francis became popular in the second half of the sixteenth century as a result of the Catholic Church´s renewed appreciation of his mystical experiences, almost to the exclusion of the more picturesque episodes of the saint´s life that had characterised traditional iconography; for example, his encounter with the wolf of Gubbio, and the invention of

Saint Dominic of Guzmán
Oil on canvas. Ca. 1685
Coello, Claudio

Spanish saint Dominic de Guzmán (1170-1221) founded the Dominican Order, which became one of the most powerful and influential religious groups in Catholic Europe, partially as a result of its defense of orthodoxy through the Inquisition, which was led by Dominican prelates. Claudio Coello made five paintings for their convent of El Rosario in Madrid, one of which is presented here. They we

Landscape with Saint Paul the Hermit
Oil on canvas. 1637 - 1638
Poussin, Nicolas

Nicolas Poussin has a curious relation to the Buen Retiro Palace. Úbea considers him the determinant artist among all those who took part in its decorative project. That could explain why he was the only one to participate in the two most important sets of works commissioned in Italy: the landscapes, and the history of ancient Rome. At the very least, he painted the present work for the fir

Saint Catherine of Alexandria

Saint Catherine of Alexandria
Oil on canvas. Ca. 1560
Titian (Tiziano Vecellio)

Although no entirely autograph painting of this subject survives, Titian painted it on numerous occasions, both as a single figure and within larger compositions. In 1648, for example, Ridolfi mentions at least tre inventioni di Santa Caterina martire, che si sposa a Christo diversamente dipinte, belonging to Cristofo and Francesco Muselli in Verona. The first (lost) image of the saint as a single

Isaac and Jacob
Oil on canvas. 1637
Ribera, Jusepe de, lo Spagnoletto

This painting narrates an event from chapter 27 of Genesis, in which Jacob tricks his father, Isaac, in order to obtain the blessing that should rightfully go to his older brother, Esau. Jacob’s mother, Rebecca, helps him dress in Esau’s clothes and cover his arm with a sheepskin that resembles his brother’s abundant body hair. He then takes food to his elderly, blind father, Isaac, thus inducing

Olympus. The Battle of the Giants
Oil on canvas. 1767 - 1768
Bayeu, Francisco

Francisco Bayeu, who came from minor nobility, trained in Zaragoza under José Luzán (who, years later, would also teach Francisco de Goya). However, a decisive change in the young Bayeu´s style came about under the influence of Antonio González Velázquez (1723-93), who visited Zaragoza soon after returning from Italy in 1752, carrying models and drawings by his Italian

Philip IV
Oil on canvas. 1623
Velázquez, Diego Rodríguez de Silva y

We see King Philip IV of Spain (r. 1621-1665) when he was around twenty years old in an austere image filled with references to his status and responsibilities and to the reformist intentions with which he began his reign. The sword on whose hilt his left hand rests and the desk bearing a top allude to the administration of justice and the defense of his kingdoms. The Golden Fleece hanging at his

This popular scene painted with great technical freedom shows an improvised stage surrounded by people in the midst of a landscape. The piece being played is a satire from the Italian Commedia dell´ Arte. The main characters appear on stage: Arlecchino, Columbina and Pantalone. A poster at the front of the stage reads “Alec Men” (“Menandrian Allegory”). This work belonged to a series of twel

Parnassus
Oil on canvas. 1630 - 1631
Poussin, Nicolas

Parnassus, the mythological mountain of Apollo and the Muses is the scene for a celebration of the Arts, especially Poetry. Apollo offers the nectar of the gods to a poet, probably Homer, who is crowned with a laurel wreath by Calliope, the muse of epic poetry. The putti in the foreground offer the poets the water of inspiration that flows from the spring of Castalia, personified by the nude woman

Still Life with Pomegranates and Grapes
Oil on canvas. Ca. 1643
Zurbarán, Juan de

Juan de Zurbarán, the son of Francisco, was one of the most original and gifted Spanish still-life painters of the seventeenth century. This work is based on a similar still life by the artist, dated 1643. It reveals Zurbarán’s ability to recreate textures, his masterly use of effects of chiaroscuro and his interest in complex compositions.

Owing to their ascending composition and their evidently decorative character, it is believed that these sculptural groups, the so-called Triumphs, were designed as table centrepieces. Like its pair (E00505), this group of ten figures represents allegories of the liberal arts through personifications of the concepts that define them, such as Imitation, Design, Study, Time and Harmony.
