Provenance
Royal Collection: Real Fábrica de Tapices de Santa Bárbara, Madrid, 24th January 1780; Royal Palace, Madrid, “sótanos del oficio de tapicería”, 1856-1857; Prado Museum, 1870 (R. O. 18.1.1870 / R. O. 9.2.1870)

A woman appears, seated in the foreground with her head on her hand, which also holds a handkerchief. In the background, other majos comprise what is clearly a scene of gallantry that contrasts with the meditative or reflexive attitude of the young woman, whose handkerchief seems to indicate lovesickness.

This cartoon was for one of the tapestries in the El Pardo Palace. Its format indicates that it hung above a door.
