Plaque Salus Informorum

Plaque Salus Informorum

ALCORA

1749-1764

It belongs to the series of “Lauretan Litanies”, based on the engravings of the Klauber brothers (Joseph Sebastian and Johann Baptist), published in 1750. This white enameled Rococo asymmetrical frame plaque represents the litany of Salus infirmorum (Health of the sick) as indicated by the legend at the top of the scene.
The Klauber brothers’ “Litany Lauretan” series consists of 57 engravings. It is possible that Alcora made them all as a commission for a convent or other religious establishment. Copies of the same series are preserved in the National Archaeological Museum (Madrid) and in the Hispanic Society of America (New York).

Medallion of the X Count of Aranda

ALCORA

From 1790

El retrato del X Conde de Aranda se presenta con D. Pedro Pablo de perfil, de medio cuerpo, con las manos metidas en la parte frontal del chaleco y con una panoplia de trofeos de guerra en la parte inferior. Es similar al conservado en The Hispanic Society of America de Nueva York, si bien cambia el tono azulado al estilo Wedgwood de este último, y la orla perimetral, que en el caso del ejemplar de la colección Torrecid está formada por un motivo de laurel policromo (verde y rojo).
