Maximina Martínez de Pedrosa, the Artist’s Mother

1892. Oil on canvas.
Room 061B

In 1887, Carlota Rosales became the first woman to be awarded a grant to study painting at the Spanish Academy in Rome, and upon her return to Madrid, she had an outstanding career. With frankness, directness and overt monumentality, the painter pays tribute with this likeness to her mother, the widow of Eduardo Rosales, who had made great efforts to preserve the artist’s memory and maintain his family.
