Madrazo, kings of Spain and military portraits

Recommended Posts

Hello I have found in the spanish portraitist, Federico Madrazo, a good source for the knowing of spanish uniforms and order and decorations: I will make in the way of post-cards, more or less. I hope to finish in few weeks.

Hello Mike.

I agree with you totally. Madrazo is a very good painter, practically unknown out of Spain, he is called "the spanish aristocracy painter" of the moment. He belongs to the romantic period, that in spain was more late than in the rest of Europe.
