"Arte incómodo": "María Hahn, the Painter’s Wife", 1901, Raimundo de Madrazo. “Uninvited Guests"

Work commented by Amaya Alzaga, Art Historian, Universidad Nacional de Educación a Distancia (UNED).

Raimundo de Madrazo y Garreta (1841-1920) "María Hahn, the Painter’s Wife", 1901.

Oblivious to vindications of the intellectual and spiritual dimension of women, Raimundo de Madrazo continued to explore the sophistication of their external appearance, adjusting his portraits of his female clients to a fashion that called amidst the rise of the Suffragette movement for a return to the values and aesthetics of the eighteenth century. It was especially successful among the women of American high society, who dressed up in Versaillesque court costumes to project an anachronistic and indolent image of themselves buried beneath the brocade.
