Catalogue Note

This painting is a cartoon for a tapestry, one of a series that was manufactured by the Royal Tapestry Factory, Madrid, for the Ambassador’s Hall in El Escorial.  Ramon Bayeu’s cartoon is generally dated to 1786 and is based on a sketch by his older brother Francisco Bayeu (1734-1795).  A painting in the Prado, Madrid, by Francisco depicts miniature sketches for thirteen tapestry cartoons, including The Vegetable Seller (Inv. P02599). 

It has been suggested by Enrique Garcia-Herraiz (see Literature) that this painting was possibly a collaboration of Ramon Bayeu and Francisco Goya (1746-1828), his brother-in-law, with whom he sometimes worked.
