Bosch — Temptation of Saint Anthony, Left Panel

Not my favorite picture at Lisbon’s Museu de Arte Antiga, but certainly her greatest crowd-pleaser. It took a rare combo of consideration and pushiness to photograph this thing.

Gianbattista Tiepolo – Flight to Egypt – Museu de Arte Antiga, Lisbon

My favorite painting at Museu de Arte Antiga is this — as it has to be every Venetian’s: the Holy Family is seen flying to Egypt as any Ventian would: by boat.

Ca. 1765-1770, oil on wood, abou 60 cm high by 30 cm wide.


Unknown Netherlandish (Flemish) Master – Triptych of the Holy Family with Angels, Saint Barbara and Saint Cathrine – Museu de Arte Antiga, Lisbon

Not the museum’s most famous painting, but very possibly her best.
Possibly around 1520-25, oil on oak panel, previously at Palacio des Necessidades.
It is tiny:  perhaps 45 cm high by 80 cm wide (all three panels — the central panel is no more than 35 cm wide).
