Born in 1803, the boy wears the cadet’s uniform of the naval college. The whiteness of the suit and the painstaking detail of the embroidery on the jacket and cap afford the portrait its characteristic clarity. The sitter’s serious mood and calm bearing indicate that he has left childhood behind and is prepared for his future responsibilities, as denoted by his hand gesture. The greyish background

This is a preparatory sketch for The Family of Charles IV. Don Francisco de Paula (1794-1865) was the youngest child of María Luisa and popularly rumoured to be the son of Manuel Godoy. In 1819 he married his niece, Luisa Carlota de Borbón-Dos Sicilias. Goya lavished particular care on this sketch, which is more highly finished than the others.

Oil on canvas. Ca. 1760
Bayeu, Francisco

This is a preparatory oil sketch for the decoration of a section of the dome in the monastery church of Santa Engracia, Zaragoza. An early work by the artist, it is close to the style of Antonio González Velázquez (1723-1794). Bayeu makes use of a complex palette and dark tonalities with a preference for browns and greyish-red shades that looks back to Spanish Golden Age painting.

The Duchess of Alba and La Beata
Oil on unlined canvas. 1795
Goya y Lucientes, Francisco de

The lively, somewhat childish character of Cayetana, the Duchess of Alba, is reflected in this little canvas. Her back is turned to the viewer, but she is recognizable by her abundantly curly black hair. She plays at frightening her duenna, Rafaela Luisa Velázquez, known as “la Beata” (“the Sanctimonious”). The Duchess shows the old woman a coral charm of the sort designed to ward off the e

This is a preparatory sketch for the ceiling in the oratory of the palace of La Granja de San Ildefonso, Segovia. It clearly depicts the structure of the dome, with its central part precisely defined and separated from the zones of the four pendentives. A dynamic and colourful work, it reflects the influence of Francisco Bayeu (1734-1795), of whom Gómez Pastor was a pupil and collaborator.

Self-Portrait
Oil on unlined canvas. 1795
Goya y Lucientes, Francisco de

This Self-Portrait’s small size indicates that it was intended for private and intimate use, as a gift to someone of interest to Goya. It came from the heirs of Tomás de Berganza, a butler to the Duke and Duchess of Alba who continued in the Duchess’s service after the Duke’s death. This provenance fueled a mid-19th-century romantic legend about Goya’s involvement with the Duchess, as the w

The man in the portrait, wearing his palace uniform, holds in his left hand a bundle of “royal orders”. The painting follows the style of portraits of professionals that López worked on in his years at the service of Fernando VII, in which he stressed the sitter’s job through the tools of his trade.

Sketches for the pendentives of the dome of the collegiate church at La Granja (Segovia). With this decoration Bayeu continued the project begun by Giambattista Tiepolo, who died in 1770, imbuing the compositions with the harmony, solidity and clarity he learnt while training under Mengs. Three of the evangelists are shown writing, inspired by angels, while Saint Luke, patron of painters, holds an

La joven dama, que aparenta alrededor de veinte años, está sentada junto a un velador, en el que se ven varios medallones y un libro, y sobre el que descansa el codo izquierdo. Luce un magnífico traje de raso gris y rosa, con manteleta y bocamangas de encaje. La blancura de su piel y la finura de su talle le infunden una fragilidad delicada y elegante. De rostro afilado y sereno, en el que resalta
