Maja in Finery

XVIII century. Oil on canvas.
Not on display

These two works (P8286; P8287) form a pair and represent Spanish popular types. They follow the late eighteenth-century fashion and are not only descriptive but have a delightful, refined rococo air and a touch of charm and freshness that recalls the theatre environment of the period.
