Portrait of Don Ramón Satué1823
Goya owes his fame to his portraits of the Spanish court and to his idiosyncratic prints. He had already turned 76 when he painted this powerful portrait. Satué was a judge in the highest tribunal of Castile. The casual pose and open collar have an informality that Goya usually reserved for portraits of his most intimate friends.
