Full-length Portrait Of A King, Spanish school of the 17th century

Francisco de Zurbaran (Fuente de Cantos 1598 - Madrid 1664) circle
Full-length portrait of a king

Second half of the 17th century

Oil on canvas
78 x 52 cm. - in frame 89 x 67 cm.


The depiction of monarchs had a strong propagandistic and social prestige function in Spain from the mid-16th century onwards, going hand in hand with the presence of a stable and powerful court.

In our case we are confronted with the figure of a ruler (not necessarily Spanish, we can detect strong similarities with the French Louis XIII of Bourbon) immortalised full-length in three-quarter-length, with his armour of high representation, sword, staff of command, and with a bright red cloak sliding down his back.

This image corresponds to the type of representative portrait that was often requested at the Spanish court and in particular we can compare it with the ‘Portrait of a Commander’ from the workshop of Francisco de Zurbarán (Hermitage Museum, Saint Petersburg

One of the most appreciated Baroque painters of the golden age of Spanish painting, Francisco de Zurbarán (Fuente de Cantos 1598 - Madrid 1664) devoted himself exceptionally to portraiture, specialising almost exclusively in painting with religious themes.

Among his most appreciated works, in addition to the portrait just mentioned, is the Don Alonso de Albornoz, in the Gemaeldegalerie in Berlin, painted immediately after his stay at the court of Madrid. Here, around 1634, he worked together with Velázquez and other painters on the decoration of the throne room, the Salón de Reinos, in the Palacio del Buen Retiro and was awarded the rank of court painter by Philip IV.
