My Godmother

Ca. 1912. Oil on canvas. On display elsewhere

Wearing a brownish-green shawl, the sitter looks at the viewer with a serious expression as she opens a fan and raises her skirt to continue her walk across the fields by the Manzanares. In the background, the Royal Palace appears as a blur. Half-way between the portrait and the costumbrista painting of typical Madrid characters, the work belongs to the conservative trend that defended local pride, in this case that of Madrid and its traditions.
