Manuel Flores Calderón

Ca. 1842. Oil on canvas

The portrait of Manuel Flores Calderón is part of an anthology of Spanish Romantic child portraits. Manuel is portrayed in front of a seascape, with two ships on the horizon. He rests his right hand on a boulder. Notable here is the painter´s special sensitivity at capturing the model´s natural elegance, which recalls English child portraits. The precise drawing and sober palette are emphasized by a few colorful touches, such as the boy´s red bowtie. These works were donated by Manuel Flores Calderón to the now-defunct Museum of Modern Art and accepted by Royal Order of 27 May 1911.
