Saint Margaret, who is recognizable through her attributes, or identifying symbols, holds a cross; a fanged dragon is at her feet. According to the story, Margaret spent her life following the teachings of Christ. The governor of Antioch in the ancient Roman province of Syria, now modern Turkey, fell in love with Margaret’s beauty and asked her to marry him. She rejected his proposal, vowing to remain a virgin. The governor sent her to prison, where the Devil appeared to Margaret as a dragon. She was saved by her Christian faith: when the dragon swallowed Margaret, she made the sign of the cross, which split the dragon in two and allowed her to escape from his belly unharmed. The left panel of the altarpiece, now in the Allen Memorial Art Museum of Oberlin University in Oberlin, Ohio, is a mirror image of this scene and depicts the woman’s husband also kneeling in devotion with his patron saint behind him. The center panel of the altarpiece to which the couple offers their prayers was probably a painting of the Virgin and infant Christ.

The first series, now in the Louvre, told her own life story. The second was to tell the life of her husband Henry IV, but was never completed, and most of the scenes are known only from painted sketches like this one. The event here is a 1589 meeting between King Henry III of France (Catherine de' Medici's youngest son) and King Henry of Navarre, the future King Henry IV of France. Henry III had no heirs, and a rival faction of French nobles who wanted to usurp his throne had taken over Paris. His cousin Henry of Navarre, although Protestant and excommunicated by the Pope, was the rightful heir. At the meeting portrayed here, Henry III promised to declare Henry of Navarre his heir, if the famous warrior king would help him to recapture Paris. To symbolize the agreement, Rubens shows the two kings clasping hands around the royal French scepter and a figure behind them holding an insignia of two clasped hands. A few months later, Henry III was stabbed by an assassin. On his deathbed, he made Henry IV promise to convert to Catholicism. Henry IV's famous comment was "Paris is well worth a mass" ("Paris vaut vien une messe").

The easy flowing brushwork and the luminous colors show the influence of Rubens. As a rococo painter, François Boucher worked primarily in the service of Madame de Pompadour, mistress to Louis XV. His paintings satisfied the taste of a sophisticated public which was sensitive to the most subtle relations of color and liked pictures hung on the light paneling of even the smallest room. This intimate painting of "Venus and Cupid," with its sensuously modeled nudes, embodies the French 18th century tendency to transform the Baroque style into one of more delicate elaboration and elegance. An 18th-century engraving, which P. Aveline made after the painting, is inscribed "F. Boucher pinxit."

Both musicians look directly out from the painting, their eye contact and lively expressions establishing a sympathetic psychological relationship with their audience. A parapet that separates performer from spectator links imaginary and actual space; dramatic lighting, naturalistic details and richly saturated colors all merge to intensify the viewer’s visual experience. The meaning of Two Musicians leaves much to the imagination. The two figures here could suggest a contrast between naïve youth and experienced age; the violin and the lute both refer to ideas of balance and harmony. Concert scenes sometimes symbolize the sense of hearing or the idea of harmony and love. Whatever the interpretation, these paintings of concerts were, like the music they represent, extremely popular with their public during the Baroque period. As a young man, Strozzi entered a monastery where he painted religious subjects. After his father’s death, he was allowed to leave the monastery to support his mother; he refused, though, to return after she died and was forced to flee his native Genoa. In 1631, he settled in Venice, where he became a Roman Catholic prelate, or church official. He enjoyed continuous success as a painter for the rest of his life.

Its development reflects changes in the views commonly held at that time on the universe and man’s relation to it. As landscape painting developed, the Dutch were quick to acquire a taste for Italian settings and motifs. In this painting, Both uses Italian motifs, such as ruins, as pictorial elements; he then combines them with the typical genre scene of a group of men playing cards. Also called The Ruins of the Temple of Saturn, this painting is a version of the original Jan Both painting of the same subject that is owned by the Alte Pinakothek in Munich, Germany. It was probably painted by either Jan Both or his brother, Andries. [Gallery label text] Born in Utrecht, Both subsequently traveled to Rome, where he remained from 1635 until 1641, when he returned to Holland. He was among the leading “bamboccianti,” as the Dutch painters were called who assimilated their native genre tradition with the classical landscape tradition they discovered in Italy. This popular composition, an autograph version of which survives in the Alte Pinakothek, Munich, shows low-life types amusing themselves near the formidable ruins of the Temple of Saturn.

His costume is made of a richly-textured fabric trimmed with buttons of gold; the elegant purse at his waist, his fashionable small plumed hat and the golden hilt of his sword attest to the wealth of his family. The coat of arms on the gilded medallion he holds in his right hand clearly identifies him as a member of the Bracciforte family of Piacenza, one of the richest cities in Renaissance Europe. A book, flute and allegorical statue of Fame, shown here as a winged figure holding two long, thin trumpets, are on a table at his right; they suggest the importance of education and music in the highest strata of Renaissance society. For decades, this portrait was attributed to the painter Niccolò dell’Abate. Recent scholarship, however, has suggested that it is the work of Girolamo Mazzola Bedoli, who was well known for his portraits of the Farnese and other notable and aristocratic families in the Duchy of Piacenza as well as the nearby Duchy of Parma. These two duchies united only a few years after this portrait was painted.

This painting illustrates the moment when Judith displays the trophy of her victory to the citizens she has rescued. In a Christian context, the story of the Jewish heroine represents the triumph of virtue over evil. During the Counter-Reformation, the subject also became a powerful symbol of the Catholic Church’s triumph over heresy, or dissent from its teachings.

In Christian art, three elements represent the Trinity. The image of an older patriarch refers to God the Father; God the Son, or Christ, is usually shown either crucified on a cross or, as in this painting, after his death; and the Holy Spirit appears as a dove in flight. During the Counter-Reformation, images of the Trinity emphasized the physical nature of Christ by focusing on his suffering and death. Like other dramatic works of Counter-Reformation art, the intent was to evoke an emotional response from the faithful that would lead to increased devotion. This painting is one of several variations of Giaquinto’s Dead Christ with the Trinity (1741-1742), a fresco he painted in the apse of S. Giovanni Calibita in Rome.

Following Anthony's suicide, a Roman soldier attempts to forestall the Egyptian queen's own death by promising that Octavian Caesar will show her clemency. The subtle, glowing colors, precise attention to detail, and impeccable draughtsmanship presage the artist's occasional work as a miniaturist.

The artist was trained by and worked with his father, Hans Vredeman de Vries, the author of "Scenographiae, sive perspectiva" (1560). This influential treatise served as pattern-book for architectural painters and introduced two of their most common subjects: the palace court with views through arcades and archways, and the extended view down the center of an imaginary church. In this painting, Paul Vredeman de Vries' use of linear perspective, tonal rather than bright colors, and realistic effects of light and atmosphere give the viewer the sensation of being in the interior of the church rather than seeing it from a distance. His meticulous attention to details such as the painted altarpiece on the left, the open doorways on the right and left, and the baptismal font in the center suggest that he has painted the interior of an actual rather than imaginary church. He does, however, make at least one step into the imaginary: he has embedded his signature in the tombstone at the far left of the painting and the date in the tombstone left of center.
