María Teresa de Madrazo y Madrazo

1868. Watercolour on continuous paper.
Not on display

This watercolour is part of a group of works Fortuny painted shortly before returning to Rome in 1868 using the people around him as models. María Teresa was the only child born of the marriage between Luis and Luisa de Madrazo, uncle and sister of Fortuny’s wife respectively, and the artist portrayed her aged two and a half. She is accompanied by a construction on a draught board and her face attests to the painter’s mastery at capturing childish innocence and tenderness.
