Don Andrés del Peral

The present portrait is almost certainly identical with the one of Don Andrés del Peral which was chosen by Goya for exhibition at the Real Academia de San Fernando in the summer of 1798.

Andrés del Peral worked as a craftsman-painter and gilder at the court of Madrid from the late 1770s to the early 1820s. He is the man of the same name who is recorded as having formed a large collection of small paintings by Goya.
