Historia

Goya was commissioned to paint this work, together with its companion piece, Charles IV, by the Spanish Mint and it was in the Finance Ministry until 1911, when it entered the Prado Museum. From 1931 to 1983 it was in storage at the Cordoba Museum of Fine Arts, and was moved to the Balaguer Museum in Villanova i la Geltrú in 1986.

Análisis artístico

This is one of the replicas that Goya made of the portraits of King Charles IV and Queen María Luisa de Parma to mark the coronation of December 1788.

In this painting, Queen María Luisa is shown standing, wearing an elegant blue silk dress, very closely fitted at the waist and decorated with gold needlework. On her chest she wears the Cross of the Order of Empress Maria Theresa of Austria (the Starry Cross). In her right hand she is holding a closed fan. On her head she wears a striking headdress, made from gauzes and feathers in the French style. The background is decorated with greenish-coloured drapery, arranged diagonally, and on the table to the left rest the crown and the ermine robe, the royal symbols.
