The Duke and Duchess of Osuna and their Children
Oil on unlined canvas. 1787 - 1788
Goya y Lucientes, Francisco de

A portrait of the Duke of Osuna, Pedro Téllez Girón (1755-1807); his wife, the Countess-Duchess of Benavente, Josefa Alonso de Pimentel (1752-1834) and their four children: Francisco de Borja (1785-1820), the following Duke of Osuna; Pedro de Alcántara (1786-1851), the future Prince of Anglona; Maria Manuela (1783-1838) and Joaquina (1784-1851), the future Marchioness of Santa

The Meadow of San Isidro
Oil on unlined canvas. 1788
Goya y Lucientes, Francisco de

Goya never actually painted the cartoon for this scene, which is one of his masterpieces, and the most popular of a series intended for the bedroom of the infantas in Madrid's El Pardo Palace. The project was suspended following the death of Carlos III. Here, the painter manages to capture the sensation of life and the hustle and bustle of a crowd sitting in the meadow. The landscape opens onto th

Saint Agatha
Oil on unlined canvas. Ca. 1635
Vaccaro, Andrea

The Sicilian saint looks imploringly to heaven as she is martyred and both her breasts cut off. The work of the Neapolitan Vaccaro reveals the influence of Guido Reni, here evident in the saint’s mystic pose and the calm resignation with which she accepts her fate.

Juan Bautista de Muguiro
Oil on unlined canvas. 1827
Goya y Lucientes, Francisco de

Holding a letter in his hand, Juan Bautista de Muguiro sits beside his desk, on which an inkwell is visible. This representation exalts his stature as a banker taking care of his business. An inscription mentions that the painting was made by Goya in May, 1827, in Bordeaux, when he was eighty-one. As the painter died in April 1828, this may well be his last known work. There are some differences w

Saints Andrew and Francis

el Greco (Domenikos Theotokopoulos)

Under a sky filled with leaden-gray storm clouds, Saint Andrew and Saint Francis of Assisi stand next to each other in conversation. The apostle appears on the viewer’s left, wearing a cobalt blue tunic and green robes whose purple silk lining has grey reflections. He faces the viewer and leans on his characteristic x-shaped cross, turning his head to his left, where Saint Francis stands. The latt

María Antonia Gonzaga, Dowager Marchioness of Villafranca
Oil on unlined canvas. Ca. 1795
Goya y Lucientes, Francisco de

This portrait of María Antonia Gonzaga y Caracciolo (1735-1801), the dowager Marchioness of Villafranca, corresponds to the period in which Goya executed his two portraits of her eldest son, José Álvarez de Toledo (one now in the Museo del Prado and the other in the Art Institute of Chicago). Her son was the eleventh Marquis of Villafranca and Duke of Alba through his marriage

Charles IV
Oil on unlined canvas. 1789
Goya y Lucientes, Francisco de

In this full-length portrait, King Carlos IV (1748-1819) wears a red frock coat adorned with silver and carries a ruler´s staff. His decorations include the Golden Fleece and the sash of the order of Carlos III. The Royal crown rests on an ermine-lined purple robe on the table to his side. This painting is paired with Goya´s portrait of Queen María Luisa in a Dress with hooped (

Madrazo y Kuntz, Federico de

The sitter, a Monarchist writer, an excellent horsewoman and a friend of the artist, is seated in a fine armchair, her figure brightly lit in the shadowy room. This appealing portrait has a decidedly French air, and is clearly influenced by the work of Ingres; it is far removed from the austere restraint of Spanish tradition. Madrazo highlights the sitter’s youth -she was thirty-two at the time- a

A Picador

A Picador
Oil on unlined canvas. Ca. 1795
Goya y Lucientes, Francisco de

An equestrian portrait of a picador, wearing a short bullfighting suit and hat and carrying a long pike. The background is a landscape with a river. X-rays of this work show that this picador is painted over an equestrian portrait of Manuel Godoy, who wears the sash of the Order of Carlos III, which he received in 1791, and the three-cornered hat of Commander of the Lifeguards, a title he received

The Duchess of Alba and La Beata
Oil on unlined canvas. 1795
Goya y Lucientes, Francisco de

The lively, somewhat childish character of Cayetana, the Duchess of Alba, is reflected in this little canvas. Her back is turned to the viewer, but she is recognizable by her abundantly curly black hair. She plays at frightening her duenna, Rafaela Luisa Velázquez, known as “la Beata” (“the Sanctimonious”). The Duchess shows the old woman a coral charm of the sort designed to ward off the e

The Adoration of the Shepherds
Oil on unlined canvas. 1628
Cavedone, Giacomo

This work repeats the canvas painted in 1613 and 1614 for the Arrigoni Chapel at San Polo Maggiore in Bologna, although there are some differences in the foreground, the Heavens with Putti and the objects that make up the still life. Its contents mix Venetian memories with hints of Caravaggio and an evident debt to Guido Reni, who had recently returned from Rome. There is a preparatory drawing for

Maria Amalia of Saxony

Mengs, Anton Raphael

A frontal view of the Queen. She sits, wearing a red silk dress with white sleeves and bonnet. Her right arm rests very naturally on a table, while her left holds a book. She is marking one of the pages with her finger as though she had just interrupted her reading. This is quite common in female portraits. Maria Amalia was born to Friedrich Augustus III, King of Poland and elector of Saxony; and

Cardinal-Infante Ferdinand of Austria

Dyck, Anthony Van

An inventory from 1636 describes this striking portrait of the Infante Ferdinand: A half-length portrait, which the Marquis of Leganés brought back, of the Infante Ferdinand in the dress and manner in which His Highness entered Brussels. He has a baton in his right hand. He wears a bright red velvet coat with gold trim, and a scarlet sash embroidered with gold, in which there is a broadswor

Taste, Hearing and Touch
Oil on unlined canvas. Ca. 1620
Brueghel The Elder, Jan (Jan 'velvet' Brueghel)

The dinner guests occupying the center of the composition symbolize the senses. Music and the singing children are hearing, and the young woman petting a mink is touch. The young woman preparing to eat some oysters symbolizes taste, while the monkey pulling on a cupid´s hair also symbolizes touch. Of equal significance are the animals and paintings in the room. The Annunciation on the top of the c

Self-Portrait
Oil on unlined canvas. 1795
Goya y Lucientes, Francisco de

This Self-Portrait’s small size indicates that it was intended for private and intimate use, as a gift to someone of interest to Goya. It came from the heirs of Tomás de Berganza, a butler to the Duke and Duchess of Alba who continued in the Duchess’s service after the Duke’s death. This provenance fueled a mid-19th-century romantic legend about Goya’s involvement with the Duchess, as the w

María Teresa de Bourbon y Vallabriga, Marchioness of Boadilla del Monte and Countess of Chichón, was the daughter of infante Luis Antonio de Bourbon by María Teresa Vallabriga y Rozas. She was born inn the family palace of Velada (Toledo) on 26 November 1780, during the distancing from the court to which she was subject, along with her mother and brothers. On the death of Luis

Wearing his characteristic winged hat, and with a pan flute next to his left hand, Mercury stealthily approaches a shepherd he has lulled to sleep with the unlimited powers of his music. The latter is the one-hundred-eyed Argos, whom Juno appointed to watch over Io, the beautiful nymph she had turned into a cow in order to protect her from the amorous advances of he husband, Jupiter.

Collantes, Francisco

The fifth-century Saint Onuphrius was a Persian hermit who withdrew as an Anchorite to the desert of Thebes, where a raven miraculously brought his daily ration of food. At his feet, a crown and scepter allude to his royal origins as, according to legend, he was the son of a Persian king. He renounced his earthly wealth in favor of prayer and meditation. A contemporary of Velázquez, Collant
