About this artwork

A court painter during his early career, Goya produced prints with comparatively little political subtext after his famed predecessor Diego de Velázquez. Isabella de Bourbon, the wife of King Phillip IV of Spain, is depicted riding sidesaddle in this portrait based on a 1635 painting in the Museo Nacional del Prado, Madrid. Intended to be paired with a companion image of Philip, the print faces the same way as the panting, showing Isabella enjoying a secure seat, elaborate trappings, and an expensive horse.
