Burial of the Constable Don Álvaro de Luna (sketch)

1858. Oil on canvas. Room 075

This preparatory sketch for its artist’s most renowned history painting (P4262) shows the moment when the corpse of the favourite of John II of Castile is publicly displayed after his execution. Luna was a figure retrieved by 19th century culture as a cause for reflection on the dangers of ephemeral political power. The final picture is also preserved at the Museo del Prado.
