Saint Agatha

Vaccaro, Andrea
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.

The Holy Family with the infant John the Baptist
Oil on panel. Ca. 1655
Giordano, Luca
The Holy Family with the infant John the Baptist
Oil on panel. Ca. 1655
Giordano, Luca

Giordano was particularly gifted at imitating the style of some of the celebrated masters of the past, as evident in this work which evokes Raphael’s pictorial language. More than a mere exercise in imitation, the presence on the rock on the right of two monograms with the letters “RSF VB” (Raphael Sanzio Faciebat Vrbinas) indicates the painter’s probable intention to produce a forgery.

Women Gladiators
Oil on canvas. XVII century
Vaccaro, Andrea (Attributed To)

This work belongs to a group from the History of Rome series for the Buen Retiro Palace. Dedicated to depictions of Roman public pastimes, the group includes athletes, gladiators, chariots, animal fights, mock sea battles and so on. Following initial doubts, the Buen Retiro Palace was conceived as a place of leisure, where it would be possible to forget the worries associated with running the mona

Battle
Oil on canvas. 1650 - 1654
Chiesa, Pasquale

La Batalla que aquí se analiza es una obra conocida por los especialistas en pintura napolitana del siglo XVII en buena medida por haber sido incluida en el fundamental catálogo de la exposición madrileña sobre el tema celebrada en 1985. En aquella ocasión, Pérez Sánchez retomaba el nombre de Aniello Falcone que acompañaba tradicionalmente al lienzo desde el inventario de 1857 para situar la obra

The raising of Lazarus
Oil on canvas. 1635 - 1640
Novelli, Pietro

This painting has recently been identified as a work by Pietro Novelli, known as Il Monrealese on account of his having been born in Monreale, Sicily. It was considered until 1933 to be the work of Neapolitan painter Andrea Vaccaro, and after that time its authorship was demoted to Anonymous Neapolitan by the Museo del Prado. The painting passed largely unnoticed on account of its being on long-te

The ascension of Saint Gennaro
Oil on canvas. 1635
Vaccaro, Andrea

Bishop Gennaro (or Januarius) is the patron saint of Naples, and thus the subject of numerous works from that city’s rich school of painting. According to tradition, he was bishop of Benevento during the Diocletianic Persecution in the third century AD. While visiting Pozzuoli, north of the Gulf of Naples, Gennaro was taken prisoner and tortured in various ways, miraculously emerging unscathed. Fi

Massacre of the Innocents
Oil on canvas. Ca. 1663
Giordano, Luca

A. E. Pérez Sánchez publicó en 1970 su fotografía y su identificación en los inventarios antiguos de El Escorial (Madrid 1970a). En la actualidad, el formato de la obra aparece alterado en todos sus lados, principalmente por mutilaciones en la parte baja y el lado izquierdo; hasta su reciente restauración presentaba un aspecto muy desvirtuado. Hasta ese momento no se había apreciado la costura en

Penitent Magdalen
Oil on canvas. Ca. 1665
Giordano, Luca

La Magdalena penitente de Giordano ilustra sobre las dudas que sus imitaciones suscitaron en épocas diversas. A pesar de que ingresó en la Colección Real en el siglo XVIII con la atribución correcta, muy pronto fue citada como obra de Ribera, Murillo y otros, hasta que a mediados de 1950 fuera restituida al artista napolitano. Giordano imita el ambiente cerrado, oscuro y desértico del maestro vale

Vázquez, José; Bueno, León; Calcografía Nacional

This print is part of a series published by the Company for the engraving of paintings from the Royal Palaces, although it was only published after that institution was no longer active. The Company for the engraving of the paintings from the Royal Palaces was one of the Spanish Enlightenment’s major undertakings during the second half of the 18th century. It supervised the reproduction of prints
