José María Torrijos

After 1831. Pen lithography on wove paper. Not on display

A liberal like Torrijos, and also exiled to England, José María Cardano was among those who introduced lithography into Spain. As habitual at this period, he included two scenes associated with his subject, the one on the left relating to his execution. The inscription at the bottom refers to the most notable events in Torrijos’s life.
