Thanks to the restoration of the Casa de l’ Ensenyança, Xàtiva’s magnificent pictorial collection can now be displayed in superb conditions. The collection ranges from pieces in the 16th century Gothic style to contemporary works of art. There is an outstanding collection of Baroque art, with paintings by Josep de Ribera as well as several works by his contemporaries, on loan from the Prado Museum in recognition of the artist’s special relationship with the city of Xàtiva. Works by great masters such as Luca Giordano, Carducho, Palomino and Juan Bautista Mazo, as well as others from the workshop or school of Teniers, Breughel, Rembrandt, Murillo and Velázquez, speak for themselves and need no introduction here. The museum also houses notable portraits of monarchs which once hung in the City Hall, including one of Fernando VII by Vicente López, who also painted an exceptional Santa Cena (Last Supper). Other artists represented in the collection include Benlliure, Rusiñol, Pérez Contel, contemporary artists such as Vento and Hernández Quero, and the Valencian painters Manuel Boix, Artur Heras, Enric Solbes, Antoni Miró and Adrià Pina. There is also a magnificent collection of engravings, among which the complete series of Goya’s Caprichos and Disparates must take pride of place.
