Madrazo

I have just completed this copy of a painting by Madrazo y Garreta of his model and muse Aline. I suspect from the shadow contrasts that he worked occasionally from photographs.

I came across this painter through Sorolla, his contemporary, who painted his portrait. Madrazo is a much tighter painter than Sorolla, whose portrait of Madrazo (below) is freer by contrast.
