Allegory of the donation of the Casino to Queen María Isabel de Braganza by the Municipality of Madrid

1818. Tempera on canvas, 950 x 620 cm.

An allegorical image that alludes to the City Government of Madrid´s gift of the mansion called the “Queen´s Casino” to Queen Isabel de Braganza on the occasion of her wedding to King Fernando VII (1784-1833) in 1816. This work was inspired by the compositions of Corrado Giaquinto´s frescos for Madrid´s Royal Palace and was painted to decorate the ceiling of the main salon of the mansion itself, although it was not installed there until the building was completely remodeled in 1818.
