Análisis artístico

This painting belongs to the series of portraits that Goya made of the family of Vicente Joaquín Osorio Moscoso y Guzmán, XI Count of Altamira, between 1785 and 1788.

Vicente Isabel Osorio de Moscoso y Álvarez de Toledo (Madrid, 1777-1837) was the firstborn of the Count of Altamira.

At the time of this portrait he was ten years old, although he is dressed as though he were already an adult, with wig, dress coat, white shirt with frills, breeches, shoes with golden buckles and dress sword. His right hand is concealed inside his coat, whilst his left one rests on his right leg. He is looking straight out at the viewer with a penetrating and highly expressive gaze in his large eyes. His face is serious and his posture displays a certain shyness. A small dog is trying to get the boy's attention by jumping up onto his leg. The pale neutral background gradually grows darker towards the top of the painting.
