As Belgium reveled in its newfound independence, won in 1830, painters such as Louis Gallait recalled historical events that characterized the long struggle for selfrule, including the martyrdom of Counts Egmont and Hoorne. These sixteenth-century Flemish noblemen dutifully served their king, Philip II of Spain, as soldiers and diplomats. Though devout Catholics, Egmont and Hoorne urged Philip to recognize the religious freedoms of Protestants, a position that branded the two as rebels and led...

Here we see Mary and Joseph at the temple before a high priest clad in a richly flower-patterned hooded mantle. Assisting clergymen in contemporary dress flank him. Joseph carries his staff, flowering with lilies--a heavenly sign indicating that Joseph was chosen by God to wed Mary. Bride and groom have halos inscribed in gold. Behind the bride stands her mother, Ann, gesturing in awe and happiness. At the extreme right, a rejected suitor breaks his staff, which does not flower as Joseph's has....

Tissot closed the published volumes of The Life of Christ with this funerary self-portrait and an invocation to the reader to pray for him. Here, he stands among articles associated with rites for the dead: tapers, a draped coffin, wreaths, and holy water. In the background, a large wreath surrounds the distinctive “JTJ” monogram with which he signed some of his works. There are also certain mystical elements. As scholars have noted, while Tissot raises his right hand in a gesture of...

Calvary, the site of the Crucifixion, was located just outside the walls of Jerusalem. The artist notes that in the enclosure visible in the middle distance—flat ground in an otherwise rocky terrain— three post holes held the crosses for Jesus and the thieves who were condemned to die alongside him. Invoking the writings of Saint Ambrose, Tissot says that Christ was crucified at the spot called Golgotha, or the place of the skull. According to tradition, Adam, the first man, was buried on...

Many Centennial-era Americans took an interest in the colonial period, which from the distance of 100 years seemed to qualify as an authentic historical past. Undertaking this painting of an old apple orchard in the coastal setting of Newport, Rhode Island, the painter William Trost Richards commented to a friend, "It was a neglected looking place . . . [and] there were suggestions of the early life, struggles and deaths of those who had cleared the wood, fought the Indians, and planted...

Son of the brutal King Herod who had murdered the innocents of Bethlehem, Herod Antipas also ruled Judaea as one of the tetrarchs, or four kings, appointed by the Romans. After marrying Herodias, the widow of his late brother, he earned the scorn of John the Baptist. The Baptist’s outspoken condemnation of the marriage prompted Herod to imprison him. Tissot depicts Herod in a colorful costume rich in its textiles and embroidered details, a distinct contrast to the simplicity of the...

The artist, born and trained in Padua, reveals his Northern Italian origin in his intensely linear style, focused in particular on the decorative qualities of God’s curling hair and beard. This circular panel, or tondo, was part of a larger multi-panel work, and was most likely placed above an Annunciation, the scene representing the Virgin at the moment the angel Gabriel announces that she will conceive. Here, God the Father releases the dove of the Holy Spirit, often depicted above...

William Merritt Chase based this subject on sketches he compiled in Venice, during his first, transformatlve European sojourn, frorn 1872 to 1878. The detalls—various art objects and antiques offered for sale—signal the antiquarian interests that Chase developed while abroad. The Antiquary Shop anticipates Chase's paintings of the lavishly decorated New York studio that he established on his return. Although the array of textiles, metalwork, ceramics, and paintings in this scene represent...

Called “Lo Spagnoletto” (the little Spaniard) by his Italian clientele, the Spanish-born and trained Ribera made his career in Naples, where his major patron, the Duke of Osuna, served as viceroy to the Spanish Bourbon rulers of southern Italy. Following a Spanish tradition initiated by the famed painter El Greco (1541–1614), Ribera painted individual portraits of Christ’s intimates, including his father Saint Joseph and his disciples. According to apocryphal sources, suitors for the...

Donato dei Bardi worked in Genoa, a city that had close ties to France in the early fifteenth century and where the artist could familiarize himself with the smooth surfaces and intricate details of Franco-Flemish painting. The refined qualities of hair and fur in the figure of Saint Jerome reflect Donato’s inspiration from Northern painting. Saint Jerome is often shown in a cardinal’s robe and hat to reflect his work for the Church. The open book and the pen refer to the saint’s...

These two paintings are from a group of family portraits commissioned by the Brooklyn businessman John Southwick from George Baker, Jr., a prominent portraitist in New York. Baker’s contemporaries credited his success to his early work as a miniature painter, a craft he learned from his father. Such training helped the younger Baker hone his skills at modeling the human figure, creating delicate color effects, and fostering a sense of intimacy in full-scale oil portraits.
