Charles III, King of Spain

1788. Taille douce: etching and engraving on ivory laid paper. Not on display

This portrait is closely based on Charles III in hunting Dress by Francisco de Goya. The monarch, wearing a dress coat, has the same pose as in the painting, leaning forward slightly and with sloping shoulders. The modelling of the face is also the same. The print was published in 1788 in the revised edition of the Bibliotheca hispana vetus (1672) by Nicolás Antonio.
