Circle of Bernard van Orley

THE VIRGIN AND CHILD

oil on panel

36.2 by 26.1 cm.; 14 1/4 by 10 1/4 in.


This is one of a number of versions of the composition, the finest of which is a picture formerly in the collection of Friedrich Glück, Budapest, considered by Baldass to be by Van Orley before 1520.1 A workshop version is in the Royal Collection (L. Campbell, The Early Flemish Pictures in the Collection of Her Majesty the Queen, Cambridge 1985, p. 105, no. 66, reproduced plate 78; inv. 1003). Van Orley’s original is in the Prince of Wied collection, Munic. More


Follower of Pieter Coecke van Aelst the Elder

ADORATION OF THE MAGI

oil on panel, shaped top

105.5 by 69.2 cm.; 41 3/8 by 27 1/4 in.

Most probably originally the central panel of a triptych. Bermejo's essay (see Literature) argues for the composition developing out of van Aelst's Adoration of the Magi, now in the Prado (inv. no. 2223), which is itself based on a picture by the artist's father-in-law Jan van Dornicke (circa 1470–1527), now in a private collection, Paris.1 The main differences to the aforementioned pictures are the bringing of all three Magi into the foreground; the direct contact between the kneeling Magi and the Christ child, and the representation of the Virgin without a veil. Bermejo suggests a date of 1533–35. More

Studio of Albrecht Bouts

CHRIST CROWNED WITH THORNS

oil on oak panel, shaped top, unframed

32 by 22.5 cm.; 12 5/8 by 8 7/8 in.


The infrared image shows that the painter originally intended to depict Christ with hands clasped, after the lost prototype by Dirk Bouts known now from copies by Albrecht's workshop.But the hands were never painted in. The panel's shaped top is unusual amongst those many copies and was probably changed at a later stage to fit in a frame. More

THE MASSACRE OF THE INNOCENTS
oil on panel
42 by 57 cm.; 6 1/2  by 22 3/8  in.

After a well known design by Raphael. No painting of the composition exists, it was designed to exist only as a print and was engraved by Marcantonio.  This composition is thought to be the first of the engravings that Raphael and Marcantnio collaborated on. More

The Massacre of the Innocents is the biblical narrative of infanticide by Herod the Great, the Roman-appointed King of the Jews. According to the Gospel of Matthew, Herod ordered the execution of all young male children in the vicinity of Bethlehem, so as to avoid the loss of his throne to a newborn King of the Jews whose birth had been announced to him by the Magi. In typical Matthean style, it is understood as the fulfillment of an Old Testament prophecy: "Then was fulfilled that which was spoken through Jeremiah the prophet, saying, 'A voice is heard in Ramah, mourning and great weeping, Rachel weeping for her children and refusing to be comforted, because her children are no more.'" The number of infants killed is not stated. The Holy Innocents have been claimed as martyrs for Christianity. More

John of God, O.H.

He has been declared a saint by the Catholic Church, and is considered one of Spain's leading religious figures. More

Saint Peter Nolasco (1189 – 6 May 1256), is a Catholic saint, born at Mas-des-Saintes-Puelles, Languedoc, today's France.

He was in Barcelona when as a teenager, became part of an army fighting the Moors in the Iberian peninsula, and was appointed tutor to the young king, James I of Aragon. In 1218 he formed a congregation of men that became the Royal and Military Order of Our Lady of Mercy of the Redemption of the Captives (the Mercedarians) with approval by Pope Gregory IX in 1230. More
