oil on canvas, h 135cm × w 98.5cm More details

The lady in this painting was the wife of the Spanish ambassador in Parma, Italy. Two versions of this portrait were painted by Mengs –court painter to the Spanish king –together with his assistants. This version was intended for Isabel Parreño’s brother-in-law, the Spanish ambassador to the Netherlands. The marquesa’s Spanish costume had caused a sensa-tion when she wore it during carnival in Parma.
