Tegeo Díaz, Rafael

Caravaca de la Cruz, Murcia, 1798 - Madrid, 1856

Young Girl Seated in a Landscape

1842. Oil on canvas, 111 x 81.5 cm.

Sitting on a stone bench beside a landscape that disappears into the distance, the girl holds various roses on a handkerchief in her lap. Her hat lies on the ground. Lost in thought, she gazes out of the painting. Her pale complexion and large black eyes are notable. The painter manages to capture the young girl´s fragility and smallness, as well as her expression, which reflects a mood somewhere between melancholy and cheerful. The meticulous and detailed rendering of this painting is visible in the small details of the hat and dress. This painting is one of the finest examples of Tejero´s qualities as a portrait painter, although the landscape in the background recalls his work in other pictorial genres, especially the perfect execution of the transparencies, the play of light and shadow on the tree branches, and the gradations of the clouds.
