The Wedding of Charles, Prince of Asturias, to María Luisa de Parma

1765. Silver. Room 089

This medal commemorates the marriage of the future Charles IV of Spain to his cousin María Luisa de Parma. This project was coordinated by José Nicolás de Azara, who invited Anton Raphael Mengs to participate. The latter convinced the engraver, who was known for the realism of his portraits, to idealise the subjects and endow them with a classical dignity.
