Allegory of the Foundation of the Order of Charles III

1778. Taille douce: etching and engraving on wove paper. Not on display

The print is based on a painting by Antonio González Velázquez. Charles III wears the habit of a master of his own Order, and is accompanied by the allegories of Merit and Virtue.
