Francisco Pradilla Ortiz - La Rendición de Granada

Francisco Pradilla Ortíz - La Rendición de Granada
location: Capilla Real, Granada
Francisco Pradilla Ortiz (July 24, 1848 – November 1, 1921) was famous for creating historical scenes - like this one depicting the surrender of Granada to the Catholic Monarchs.

Goya - la Maja desnuda

Goya - la Maja desnuda - Location: Museo del Prado

One of Goya's best known paintings is 'The Naked Maja' (La maja desnuda). He painted another picture of the same woman in the same pose called 'The Clothed Maja' (La maja vestida). I prefer this one.

El Greco - 'Nobleman with a hand on his chest'

El Greco - El caballero de la mano en el pecho

This is considered to be one of the 'must see' paintings in the Prado.
