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.

Oil on canvas. Ca. 1625

This painting is a copy of the lower part of El Greco’s celebrated original on display in the church of Santo Tomé, Toledo. A work of considerable quality, it reveals an interesting variety of pictorial devices: heavily charged brushstrokes in the areas of the chasubles and ruffs, with the pigment dragged and scumbled in other zones such as the Franciscan’s habit. It was formerly in the Jes

A Soldier
Oil on canvas. Ca. 1560
Moroni, Giovanni Battista

Painted in Bergamo, this canvas reveals Moroni’s innate gifts as a portraitist, which were based on his remarkable ability to offer an objective depiction of real life in which the Lombardo-Venetian tradition combined with his knowledge of northern art. Moroni was more concerned to convey his sitters’ physical appearance or social position than to investigate their personality in any depth. The id

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

In a space half-way between a private living-room and an artist’s studio, a family adopts a group pose. The well-to-do surroundings of the group, whose identity has yet to be determined, reflect the orderly world of the bourgeoisie, where everyone has their own place. In the centre is the uniformed father, who is painting a battle scene while his wife plays a piece on the piano and his daughters a
