Philip V, the first Spanish Bourbon king and grandson of Louis XIV, inherited an exceptional group of vessels from his father, Louis, the Grand Dauphin of France (1661-1711). Made of rock crystal and decorative stones, traditionally known as “hardstones”, most are embellished with gold and silver mounts and with diamonds, rubies, emeralds, pearls and other gems. This collection is known as the Dauphin’s Treasure.
The rarity of the materials employed in conceptually complex creations of this type and the technical skill involved in their making and decoration explain why they were so highly cherished, above and beyond other works of art such as paintings or sculptures, traditionally more highly valued.
This app will help you to discover the Dauphin’s Treasure, its origins, the materials used in its creation and the different workshops involved. It also discusses the Treasure’s eventful history as well as the valuable cases that protected the works. This unique collection has been on display in its entirety at the Museo del Prado since 2018.
Second Canvas Museo del Prado – Bosch is created as part of the special programme organised by Museo del Prado to commemorate the death’s 5th centennial of Hyeronimus Bosch throughout 2016. This app allows you to explore in super-high resolution, with a high level of both detail and quality unnoticeable to the human eye directly, major masterpieces of the Flemish painter, such as The Haywain Triptych, The Adoration of the Magi, The Table of the Seven Deadly Sins and The Garden of Earthly Delights.
On this occasion, apart from the triptychs’ internal panels, the external have also been digitalised, showing a so far less-known part of Bosch’s oeuvres, making it possible to examine the doors’ couronnements and the scenes in them. All of the artwork includes an additional vision taken from IR-reflectography. In the case of The Garden of Earthly Delights X-rays can be used too. Both IR and X-rays allow us to discover hidden characters, changes in the final version and the artist’s pendimenti.
