Follower of Francisco José de Goya y Lucientes
PORTRAIT OF A MAN, HALF-LENGTH, IN A LACE-DECORATED COAT
oil on canvas, in a painted oval


Although not a direct copy after a particular work, the present painting is influenced by the work of Francisco de Goya, who was the most important Spanish artist of the last quarter of the 18th and first quarter of the 19th centuries, and who served three generations of Spanish kings. Goya was 37 when he secured his first important portrait commission from Spain’s Prime Minister, Count Floridablanca, and his reputation grew quickly. Ambitious and proud of his status, he gained patrons from the entire breadth of Spanish society: from the royal family and aristocrats, to intellectuals, politicians and military figures, to his own friends and family. Goya's portrait of Don Ramon de Posada y Soto in the The M. H. de Young Memorial Museum, San Francisco (inv. no. 61.44.26)is a useful example of the type of portrait on which the present work is clearly based.
