Madrazo y Kuntz, Federico de
Gonzalo Fernández de Córdoba at the Battle of Cerignola
Oil on canvas. 1835
Madrazo y Kuntz, Federico de

Este lienzo es una de las obras fundamentales de la pintura del Romanticismo español, así como el primer cuadro importante de este género realizado por Federico de Madrazo a lo largo de su fecundísima carrera, que dedicaría después de forma prácticamente exclusiva a la pintura de retratos. Realizado en tamaño poussinesco es decir, a un tercio del natural, siguiendo la moda académica de esos años.

The Painter Carlos Luis de Ribera
Oil on canvas. 1839
Madrazo y Kuntz, Federico de

Carlos Luis de Ribera y Fievé, eldest son of the neoclassical painter, Juan Antonio de Ribera, was also a painter and a friend of Federico de Madrazo, who made this portrait while both lived in Paris. It is the result of an agreement that each would paint the image of the other, and then send the works to the annual painting exhibition at the Academy of Fine Arts of San Fernando in Madrid.

Federico Flórez y Márquez
Oil on canvas. 1842
Madrazo y Kuntz, Federico de

A full-length portrait of Federico Flórez as a boy, wearing the uniform of the School of Noble Students of Madrid. This work is especially significant in Madrazo´s oeuvre, as it is one of the few examples of a portrait in a landscape. The evocation of Velasquez´s world is combined with the approach of European Romanticism, including a sensationalist lighting that envelops the figure in a cr

Sabina Seupham Spalding
Oil on canvas. 1846
Madrazo y Kuntz, Federico de

This portrait of the wife of the banker Henry O’Shea reveals the British influence on Madrazo’s fully romantic period. Her social position is indicated by the quality of the fabrics, laces and jewels, and by the elegant arrangement of the hands. The books allude to the culture of this lady, who was a friend to the writer Washington Irving.

Ventura de la Vega

Madrazo y Kuntz, Federico de
Ventura de la Vega
Oil on canvas. 1849
Madrazo y Kuntz, Federico de

The writer Ventura de la Vega (1807-1865), a leading light in Madrid’s literary and artistic circles, was a close friend of the painter. In this portrait, whilst conveying the sitter’s unstudied elegance, Madrazo particularly sought to capture his character and his intensely expressive gaze.

Sofía Vela y Querol
Oil on canvas. 1850
Madrazo y Kuntz, Federico de
Sofía Vela y Querol
Oil on canvas. 1850
Madrazo y Kuntz, Federico de

Although Federico de Madrazo began working in the genre of historical painting, his gifts as an artist promptly led him to portraiture, which he cultivated in all its forms throughout his lengthy career and in which he conspicuously excelled. This portrait of Sofía Vela is one of the best from the artist´s romantic period and is a superb example of the intimate portrait. It was exhibited at

Carolina Coronado

Carolina Coronado
Oil on canvas. Ca. 1855
Madrazo y Kuntz, Federico de

The writer Carolina Coronado (1820-1911) was a leading Romantic poet and a staunch advocate of education for women. Her sensitive, melancholy nature is conveyed here with delicate precision. The meticulous draughtsmanship reflects Madrazo’s academic training, whilst the beautiful black tones of the shawl, like the austere palette, recall the traditions of seventeenthcentury Spanish painting.

Josefa del Águila y Ceballos, later Marchioness of Espeja
Oil on canvas. 1852 - 1854

Josefa del Águila y Ceballos, later Marchioness of Espeja
Oil on canvas. 1852 - 1854
Madrazo y Kuntz, Federico de

Madrazo interprets the elegance and refinement of the French painter Jean-Auguste-Dominique Ingres with a personality of his own, especially in the sitter’s pose. The handling of the textiles - notably the delicate rendering of the transparency of the lace - their colours, and the touches of the brush that accentuate the highlights make this a particularly significant work from his mature period.

Amalia de Llano y Dotres, Countess of Vilches
Oil on unlined canvas. 1853
Madrazo y Kuntz, Federico de
Amalia de Llano y Dotres, Countess of Vilches
Oil on unlined canvas. 1853
Madrazo y Kuntz, Federico de

The sitter, a Monarchist writer, an excellent horsewoman and a friend of the artist, is seated in a fine armchair, her figure brightly lit in the shadowy room. This appealing portrait has a decidedly French air, and is clearly influenced by the work of Ingres; it is far removed from the austere restraint of Spanish tradition. Madrazo highlights the sitter’s youth -she was thirty-two at the time- a

María Dolores Aldama, Marchioness of Montelo
Oil on canvas. 1855
Madrazo y Kuntz, Federico de

This young aristocrat, portrayed in three-quarter length, stands posed before the viewer wearing a magnificent black satin and velvet dress trimmed with lace and ribbons, a close-fitting bodice and a full, domed skirt. Her hair is smoothed and parted, with braids wound around her ears and gathered in the back, held in place with a large, bejewelled pin and lace frill. She wears, at her neckline, a

Segismundo Moret y Quintana
Oil on canvas. 1855
Madrazo y Kuntz, Federico de

This portrait provides exceptional testimony to Federico de Madrazo´s fully mature style, which made him the greatest Spanish portrait artist of the middle decades of the nineteenth century. Painted at the pinnacle of his career, Madrazo has combined the technical refinement of the French academic portrait -inspired by the work of Jean-Auguste-Dominique Ingres, a friend of his father´s- with the a

Benito Soriano
Oil on canvas. 1855
Madrazo y Kuntz, Federico de

Retrato de busto en el que aparece el pintor retratado a los 28 años, cuando ya gozaba de una gran amistad con Federico de Madrazo. De frente, ligeramente girado hacia la izquierda, con lentes, amplio bigote y perilla. Sobre la chaqueta y resaltando sobre el blanco de la camisa, un semiabocetado lazo realizado con amplias pinceladas que contrastan con el acabado dibujístico del rostro. El brillo d

Josefa Coello de Portugal
Oil on canvas. 1855
Madrazo y Kuntz, Federico de

In the mid-nineteenth century Federico de Madrazo produced some of the most successful portraits of the Spanish bourgeoisie during the reign of Isabel II (1833-68), presenting them with the opulence that their social status demanded. In addition to his remarkable artistic ability, his female portraits are outstanding for their depiction of the accessories and adornments. These details are emphasis

Jaime Girona, later 1st Count of Eleta
Oil on canvas. 1856
Madrazo y Kuntz, Federico de

This portrait of Jaime Girona, a politician and financier from Barcelona, is of a typology that the artist repeated frequently in portraits of the bourgeoisie in the 1850s, and it is perhaps his work of highest quality. The naturalness of the sitter is remarkable, as is the careful modelling and the delicate precision in the representation of his hands.

Saturnina Canaleta de Girona
Oil on canvas. 1856
Madrazo y Kuntz, Federico de
Saturnina Canaleta de Girona
Oil on canvas. 1856
Madrazo y Kuntz, Federico de

In this skilfully painted portrait, Madrazo combines the model’s innate elegance and restraint with the naturalness of her gesture as she puts on her gloves. The principal light source emphasises the jewellery and texture of the clothing while also modelling the body and face, which turns towards the viewer with a photographic immediacy. Saturnina Canaleta was married to the wealthy Catalan banker

Concepción Remisa

Concepción Remisa
Oil on canvas. 1856
Madrazo y Kuntz, Federico de

Concepción Remisa de Moret was the wife of Segismundo Moret y Quintana, a famous nineteenth-century Spanish writer, politician and landowner whose portrait -also by Madrazo- is in the Prado Museum collection as well (P04466). The purity of lines and delicate rendering of this work reveal the influence that the French painter, Jean Auguste Dominique Ingres (1780-1867), had on Federico de Mad

Louise Amour Marie de Bouillé, later Marchioness of Rambures
Oil on canvas. Ca. 1871
Madrazo y Kuntz, Federico de

Louise Amour Marie de Bouillé, the wife of the French ambassador in Madrid, is registered as a copyist at the Museo del Prado from November 1871 onwards. It must have been around then that she was portrayed by Federico de Madrazo in this delicate work, half-way between a life sketch and a small portrait, where the aristocrat is shown painting. Of Caribbean Creole descent, Louise was a multi

The Painter Eduardo Rosales
Oil on canvas. 1867
Madrazo y Kuntz, Federico de

According to the inscription on the right, this is a portrait of the painter and friend of Madrazo, Eduardo Rosales. The detailed rendering of the face in profile stands out against the neutral green background. The very loose brushstrokes are applied with large gestures, bringing out the highlights on the forehead, nose and ear and drawing especial attention to the red button of the Legion of Hon
