Catalogue Note

Painted in 1876, Josefa de Ochoa was the daughter of Eugenio de Ochoa (1815-1872), intellect, man of letters and Secretary to Queen Isabel II of Spain. Josefa's sister Eugenia married their first cousin, the painter Raimundo de Madrazo, who shared a studio in Rome together with his brother Ricardo and Rogelio de Egusquiza. It was almost certainly as result of this connection that Josefa was introduced to Egusquiza and sat for the present work.  

Josefa's strikingly sophisticated pose reflects both her intellectual upbringing as well as Egusquiza's training in Paris, where he was a pupil of Léon Bonnat, an artist who had in his time been a pupil of Federico de Madrazo, father of Raimundo and Ricardo.
