The Last Supper
Oil on panel. 1555 - 1562
Juanes, Juan de (Vicente Juan Masip)

Painted for the base of the main altarpiece of San Esteban in Valencia (P00838, P00839, P00840, P00841 and P00842), Inspired by Leonardo, both in the definition of the space and in the eloquent expressiveness of the apostles, it also shows Juanes’s close relationship with Raphael. In keeping with traditional iconography in Spain, he focussed the scene on Jesus, serene and triumphant at the moment

July (Leo)
Oil on canvas. S XVI - XVII century
Bassano, Francesco

Although there is no extant set of the twelve months of the year painted by Jacopo, it is possible that he invented this series. Certainly, the inventory taken in Bassano del Grappa following his death in 1592 mentions sketches of the twelve months from January to December (two different versions of some, such as May and June), and a further seven of unspecified months. In 1648, Ridolfi referred t

Bassano, Francesco

Although Bettini noted a number of paternal precedents for this painting, it is a personal interpretation by Francesco of the gospel passage. Three versions are known, of which the Prado painting is the last. The first, dated about 1585, was auctioned by Sotheby´s of Florence in 1984, and there is a preparatory drawing of the figures of the elderly man with a bear and the page on the left (V

The Holy Family of Cardinal Fernando de’ Medici
Oil on canvas. 1584
Allori, Alessandro

Cardinal Fernando de’ Medici gave this canvas to the Minorite seminary of San Francisco de Paula, the saint who kneels in the foreground. The seminary, in Alcalá de Henares, was founded by the influential wife of Bartolomé de Santoyo, Keeper of the King’s Jewels and Royal Secretary. The canvas reflects the new style developed by the painter Santi di Tito in Florence from 1575 onwards

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

Teniers The Younger, David (Workshop Of)

In the Seventeenth Century, tobacco became one of the major themes of Nordic painting, often as an allegory of the sense of smell and as a symbol of the fragility of human existence. The output of the Flemish artist David Teniers contains numerous such scenes, depicting the inside of taverns with popular characters drinking and smoking in a relaxed setting, imbued with realism and spontaneity. Ano

Teniers The Younger, David

The teacher at this money school punishes one of the students while another seems to be interceding on his behalf. Behind, the rest of the students look on in fear from their tables. This is a criticism of the bad social attitudes whose stupidity and lack of rational thought is symbolized here by monkeys. Teniers dealt with this matter on several occasions. In the present example, he is clearly cr

The Return of the Prodigal Son
Oil on canvas. Ca. 1570
Bassano, Jacopo (Jacopo Dal Ponte); Bassano, Francesco

This work portrays the well-known New Testament parable (Luke, 15: 11-32) illustrating the repentance of the sinner and the virtues of forgiveness. The pretext for the setting is the banquet given by the father to celebrate the return of the son, in which, according to the gospel, a fatted calf was served. The painter chose to recreate the festive nature of the event, ignoring the angry protests o

Master Of The Luna Family

The artist of this panel is traditionally referred to as the Master of the Luna Family, whom Post first identified in 1933 as one of the two painters who produced the altarpiece for the chapel of Saint James the Apostle in Toledo Cathedral, founded by Don Álvaro de Luna. It was the latter`s daughter, María de Luna, Duchess of El Infantado, who contracted the altarpiece on 21 December

Vision of Saint Francis of Assisi
Oil on canvas. 1636 - 1638
Ribera, Jusepe de, lo Spagnoletto

A more than half-length depiction of the saint, standing in front of a skull and contemplating the angel who shows him a glass recipient filled with transparent water, alluding to the purity that anyone aspiring to the priesthood should possess. In his humility, the saint thinks he will never reach such perfection and renounces the calling. In keeping with the mentality of the Counterreformation,

Juanes, Juan de (Vicente Juan Masip)

Taken together, these three works clearly convey a Eucharistic meaning. They depict Christ holding up the chalice and the Host (P00844), flanked by two Old Testament figures: King Melchizedek, bearing bread and wine (P00853), and the priest Aaron with a jar of incense (P00854). The three panels were part of the tabernacle of the high altar in the church of the Birth of the Virgin in Fuente de la H

Judith and Holofernes
Oil on canvas. Ca. 1577
Tintoretto, Jacopo Robusti (Workshop Of)

Traditionally catalogued as a work from Tintoretto´s youth, the dating of this painting has been moved to the late fifteen-seventies by recent studies. The artist draws on the Bible story (Judith 13, 9-11) but his reading of the subject is not erotic. Here, Judith wears her finest clothing to seduce Holofernes, rather than appearing nude, as was habitual in Italian Renaissance art. The action take

Oil on canvas. 1640 - 1645
Linard, Jacques

Linard offers a concentrated reflection on the transience of life, symbolised by the skull and carnation. One of the leading still-life painters in France in the first half of the seventeenth century, Linard worked for Cardinal Richelieu and for Louis XIII, becoming Painter to the King.

This work is part of the series of six panels of monkey scenes in the Museo Nacional del Prado (from P01805 to P01810). The subject matter has been associated with human foolishness since the Middle Ages and is drawn from the oeuvre of Pieter Brueghel the Elder and Peter van der Borcht. Teniers successfully captures the ambivalence of mankind in its animal nature. A group plays cards in the foreg

These panels (P02838, P02839, P02840), along with a fourth one in a private collection, illustrate the Story of Nastagio degli Onesti, the eighth novel of the fifth day of Boccaccio´s Decameron. This is the story of Nastagio, a young man from Ravenna who was rejected by the daughter of Paolo Traversari and abandoned the city to settle on its outskirts. The third panel shows the guests´ reaction to
