Hippomenes and Atalanta
Venus, Adonis and Cupid

The Museum has one work by Caravaggio, David Victorious over Goliath, as well as various by his followers, including Orazio Gentileschi who developed towards a clearly Venetian style, as evident in Moses saved from the waters.

The most important artist of the Bolognese School, Annibale Carracci, is well represented in the Museum with Venus, Adonis and Cupid. Other artists from this school include the classicising Guido Reni, present with magnificent works such as Hippomenes and Atalanta and Saint Sebastian, and Guercino, with Susannah and the Elders and Saint Peter freed by the Angel.

The Prado has a large collection of paintings by the Neapolitan artist Luca Giordano. They number around 80 and span his entire career from his early years in Italy with paintings such as Rubens painting the Allegory of Peace to late works from the end of his Spanish years such as Charles II on Horseback, The prudent Abigail and The Capture of a Fortress.
