Portrait of Don Ramón Satué, Francisco José de Goya y Lucientes, 1823
Goya owes his fame to his portraits of the Spanish court and to his idiosyncratic prints. He had already turned 76 when he painted this powerful portrait. Satué was a judge in the highest tribunal of Castile. The casual pose and open collar have an informality that Goya usually reserved for portraits of his most intimate friends.
