Manuela Isidra Téllez-Girón, future Duchess of Abrantes

1797. Oil on canvas

Here Esteve combines the influence of Velázquez’s use of indefinite spaces with Murillo’s grace and chromatic harmony and Goya’s loose, precise technique. Considered the artist’s finest portrait, it is notable for its expressiveness, the artist’s ability to depict the transparent gown and the work’s originality within the context of eighteenth-century child portraits.
