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...

Frère found great success with his depictions of children, in rustic village interiors, engaged in various activities—school lessons, domestic chores, and games with siblings or friends. In both of these images, Frère presents his small subjects sympathetically, adopting their low vantage points. While the young girl diligently sits beside the stove with her ladle at the ready to stir the soup or stew, the boy in the schoolroom sulks after a scolding from his teacher, with the discarded...

In colonial Peru, the ruling Spanish orchestrated the production and dispersal of religious imagery as testimony to the Christian mission of Spanish domination. This long narrative panel—which should be read from right to left—was produced in the Spanish colonial artistic center of Cuzco, Peru, a highland city that remained a stronghold of native Inca culture. While the artists working in Spanish-influenced painting guilds borrowed heavily from works by European artists in the local...

Saint James Major was one of Christ's apostles and the patron saint of pilgrims, those devoted and adventurous Christians who made their way over hundreds of miles to the Holy Land or to the chief pilgrimage churches of Europe. Their connection with James arose from the belief that the apostle had traveled across the Mediterranean as far as Spain to found the famous church Santiago (Spanish for Saint James) de Compostela. The seashell, symbolizing that voyage, and the staff are the saint's...

Arnold Böcklin was one of many artists lured to Italy to sketch and paint the light-bathed countryside in and around Rome. Unlike Hubert Robert and Pierre Thuillier (whose works are also shown here), who found inspiration in timeworn monuments, the Swiss painter did not seek out famous landmarks but preferred rustic sites seemingly untouched by man. Although Böcklin includes the figure of a bather disrobing in the middle ground, her tiny form primarily underscores the vastness of nature, seen...

This early Madonna is unusual in Sano’s prolific career in that it shows not only the graceful linear forms that characterize Sienese painting, but also the powerful effect of Florentine realism in the pliant muscularity of the Child and the sense of observed reality in the head of the Madonna. The Madonna of Humility refers to images of the Virgin seated modestly on the ground (usually, as here, on a cushion), emphasizing her humanity and motherhood, as opposed to the Madonna Enthroned,...

When warned by Jesus that he would deny him three times before the cock crowed—before the dawn—Peter vehemently objected, asserting his fidelity and pledging to die alongside Jesus. However, the prophecy is realized. Peter first denies his status as a disciple to the maidservant who points an accusatory finger at him while guarding the door to the chief priest’s chamber. Later, admitted to the priest’s rooms, where he warms himself by the fire, Peter again rejects the association when...

This altarpiece was completed with depictions of just two saints flanking the Madonna, rather than the more customary four. Saint James is shown with a pilgrim’s staff, though not with his other traditional attributes of a hat and seashells. Saint John the Evangelist, a young man with golden hair, carries as his attribute a book, referring to his authorship of the Fourth Gospel and the Book of Revelation. Recent conservation treatment has revealed the refined qualities and vivid colors of the...

Fascinated by Dutch painting, Boudin made frequent voyages to the Netherlands to paint its cities and countryside. The artist visited Dordrecht several times, eventually completing dozens of works devoted to the city. He painted several views of the Grote Kerk from a number of points of view—here, from a canal. Boudin’s practice of painting a motif from several viewpoints proved influential to his younger colleague Claude Monet, who later became known for his series of paintings devoted to...

Lured by the tranquil waters and hidden corners of riverscapes, Daubigny began to explore the river valleys outside Paris in the late 1850s from Le Botin , his floating studio. For this scene, Daubigny selects a viewpoint in the center of the waterway, looking down a long stretch of the river and up toward the bank where herdsmen coax their cattle onto a barge. The still water and the reassuringly peaceful coexistence of man and nature made such paintings highly popular with Daubigny’s urban...

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...

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...

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...

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...
