Catalogue Note

The sitter was the daughter and eldest child of Francis I of the Two Sicilies and his wife Maria Isabella of Spain, and sister of the Duchesse de Berry. She married her maternal uncle the Infante Don Francisco de Paula of Bourbon in 1819, and they had eleven children.

José Luis Díez lists two further autograph versions of this portrait. The first is dated to 1819 by Díez and resides in the collection of the Museo Lázaro Galdiano in Madrid. The second, unsigned replica, dated 1820 by the author, is in a Private Collection in Cagliari (see J.L. Díez, Vincente López (1772-1850) Il catálogo razonado, Volumen II, Madrid 1999, pp. 105, nos. P-413 and P-414, reproduced plate 156).

We are grateful to Dr. José Luis Díez for endorsing the attribution to Vicente López on the basis of photographs.
