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 crepuscular atmosphere, giving it a somewhat melancholy mood.
