Federico de Madrazo’s portrait of the Marchioness of Espeja, donated by Alicia Koplowitz

Javier Barón, Chief Curator of the Department of the 19th Century Painting at the Museo Nacional del Prado comments "Portrait of Josefa del Águila y Ceballos, subsequently Marchioness of Espeja" (1852).

The Museo del Prado is presenting Portrait of Josefa del Águila y Ceballos, subsequently Marchioness of Espeja, donated to the Museum this April by Alicia Koplowitz, a member of the Royal Board of Trustees of the Museo del Prado.

This is one of the artist’s most important works from his mature period. Dated 1852, Madrazo returned to the work in early 1854, completing it and delivering it that year. Federico de Madrazo was the best Spanish portraitist of that decade and the one who achieved most international renown. During those years no other Spanish portraitist came close to the quality of his works, as evident in this example.

English and Spanish subtitles available.
