Francisco Goya "Dance on The Banks of The Manzanares"

  • Print on Canvas
  • In Gilt Frame

About this Painting:
The painting is a representation of the famous dancing Seguidillas scene of Majos and Majas along the banks of Manzanares River in Madrid. In the background, Goya decided to paint the area around the Pontones Bridge that is not far away from La Quinta del Sordo, which happens to be the house and land he purchased in 1819. The consequent tapestry was aimed towards hanging in the feasting area of Princess of Asturias and the Prince. The two were to become the future Carlos IV alongside Maria Luisa de Parma (wife) at El Escorial Monastery. Dance on the Banks of the Manzanares was part of an ornamental series. The series was made of ten cartoons for tapestries, mainly on subjects that focus on the "Countryside."
