Life Study

1887. Oil on canvas. Room A

The painter Concepción de Figuera took the male pseudonym of Luis Lármig, which had been invented by her uncle, the poet and politician Luis Martínez Güertero. Under this name, she entered the National Exhibition of 1887, where she presented this canvas. The critics judged it a promising start to the career of a young artist who showed a good command of line and colour based on evident study of the old masters. The jury awarded the picture a prize without knowing the artist was a woman.
