María Luisa de Parma, Queen of Spain

1789 - 1792. Oil on canvas.
Room 089

This canvas, which retains its original frame, was painted around 1789 as a pair to a portrait of Charles IV to mark the couple`s ascent to the throne, referred to by the crown, sceptre and ermine mantle. Maella later added the sash of the Order of María Luisa, founded by the Queen in 1792, and simplified the hair ornament to take the form of a jewel with attached feather.
