The Prado Museum is staging an exhibition focusing on portraits of children in Spanish Romanticism. The works selected, including the recently acquired portrait by Antonio María Esquivel, are part of the gallery’s holdings.
Portraits of children were very important in nineteenth-century Spain during the Romantic period, since children were seen as the embodiment of innocence, goodness and unspoilt talent before contact with civilisation.
Interestingly, a work by the painter from Seville Antonio María Esquivel (1806-1857), one of the most prominent portrait artists of the time, will be part of this exhibition.
