Historia

This work comes from the Royal Collection. In 1814 it was housed in the Royal Palace in Madrid. It entered the Prado Museum's collection some time before 1834, since it appears in the inventory of the Royal Museum for that year, very probably together with the Family of Charles IV (La familia de Carlos IV). It appears for the first time in the Prado's catalogue in the 1872 edition

Análisis artístico

This is one of the ten sketches of individual figures which Goya produced during his visits to Aranjuez in preparation for the group portrait Family of Charles IV. It is one of five housed in the Prado Museum.

Louis of Bourbon (Piacenza, Italia, 1780 - Florence, Italy, 1803) was the son of Fernando, Duke of Parma, and the Archduchess María Amelia de Lorena. He married the Infanta Luisa Josefina of Bourbon, daughter of King Charles IV and Queen María Luisa in 1795. In 1801, at Napoleon's request, he was named King of Etruria, although he died before he could be crowned.

The sitter, whose face is much more solemn and grave than in the definitive work, is wearing the red ribbon of the Order of the Golden Fleece, the sash of the Order of Charles III and the badge of the Order of Saint Januarius.
