- Legacy of Ramón de Errazu, 1904
A portrait of Aline Masson, Madrazo's favorite model and the esthetic ideal of femininity in late-nineteenth-century bourgeois Paris.
The white mantilla over a red embroidered shawl and the flowers in her hair link this work to the nineteenth-century French taste for Spanish things, a detail Madrazo emphasized in many of his works.
This painting entered the Prado Museum as part of the Ramón Errazu legacy accepted by Royal Order of 13 December 1904.
