The Two Caudillos

1866. Oil on canvas.
On display elsewhere

This painting was presented at the National Exhibition of Fine Arts in 1866. It depicts the Great Captain´s encounter with the body of his adversary after the famous battle for the control of the Kingdom of Naples, which was fought during the reign of the Catholic Kings. The page, who still holds the body of his dead lord, directs an imploring gaze at the Spanish hero. The painter clearly captures the winner´s respect for the loser, who was given the appropriate funeral honors. This painting was a new success for Casado del Alisal following his Surrender of Bail
