The Prado has an important collection of 18th-century Italian landscapes and a number of paintings depicting events related to the Spanish royal family. These include a View of the Palace of Aranjuez by Battaglioli, and Carlos III Embarking in Naples by Antonio Joli. The group of three compositions with ruins by Panini is worth singling out.

A small but interesting group of Grand Tour portraits should be mentioned. These include Francis Basset, I Baron of Dunstanville, and George Legge, Viscount Lewisham, both by Batoni.

Among the extensive group of works by Corrado Giaquinto in the Prado, worth separate mention are the preparatory oil sketch for the fresco in the Royal Palace in Madrid entitled The Birth of the Sun and the Triumph of Bacchus, and the allegorical composition of Justice and Peace.

Among the best examples of works by the Tiepolo family in the Prado’s collection are Giambattista Tiepolo’s Immaculate Conception, the eight canvases on the Passion from the Madrid church of San Felipe Neri by his son Giandomenico, and various pastel portraits by his other son Lorenzo.
