ABSTRACT: Everyday objects depicted in painting are key elements for establishing the lifestyles of the society in the Golden Age. The paintings that belong to the Royal Collection, guarded in Prado National Museum, constitute clear illustrative examples of that historical context. In addition, they are also a sign of the pictorial tastes of Philip II, Philip III and Philip IV - monarchs who carried out a policy of works of art acquisition and the promotion of the best artists from the 16th and 17th centuries. In these paintings there are religious, historical, mythological and genre scenes, providing a graphical view of daily life, social classes, trades and ways of leisure.
In the present study we will find different ways of representation according to the artistic school to which those works belong. The Italian model of representation was led by the Bassano family painting, and in the Nordic painting model, still lifes and vases will be basic. The study done on each specific element that appears in the paintings allows you to draw general conclusions for a conceptual reflection on art and society in the European Golden Age.
