Provenance
Colección Lorenzo Moret y Remisa (por herencia familiar); Mª Teresa Moret y Remisa (por herencia familiar, desde 1918); donación de Mª. Teresa Moret y Remisa, señora de Beruete, al Museo de Arte Moderno, 1924.

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 Madrazo from the very start.

On 12 June 1924, Concepción Remisa's daughter, Teresa Moret, donated this work to the Museum of Modern Art. From there, it entered the Prado Museum.
