FRANCISCO JOSÉ DE GOYA
Etching printed in black on cream wove paper, 1778-79. 370x310 mm; 14 1/2x12 1/4 inches, wide margins. Fourth edition. A very good, evenly-printed impression with strong contrasts.
According to Harris, the fourth edition "appears to have been extremely small."
Felipe III (1578-1621) ruled Spain at the height of its empire. He married his cousin, Margarita de Austria (see preceeding lot), in 1599. Goya based this portrait, as well as that of Margarita, on paintings by Velázquez now in the Prado, Madrid. Delteil 6; Harris 5.
