Statue of Charles III

1784. Taille douce: etching and engraving on wove paper Not on display

This print reproduces Alfonso Bergaz’s sculpture of Charles III, which was installed on a large pedestal in the main square in Burgos in 1784 on the initiative of Antonio Tomé, a wealthy merchant and the city’s consul. In addition to the monarch’s regal, military presentation, which evokes classical art, the face is notably realistic and has a liveliness singled out at the time as the sculpture’s finest feature.
