Allegory of Summer

Ca. 1819. Oil on canvas. Room 062

The decoration of the Queen’s Casino included two series of similar format and style alluding to cycles of time, painted by José de Madrazo and Juan Antonio de Ribera. These allegories of the Hours of the Day and the Four Seasons took the form of delicate female figures in flight, accompanied by putti who hold their respective attributes.
