About Antonia Zárate

The artwork titled “Antonia Zárate” is an oil on canvas painting by the renowned artist Francisco Goya, created circa 1805. This portrait is a manifestation of the Romanticism art movement, measuring 103.5 by 81.9 centimeters. It portrays the genre of portraiture aptly, capturing the essence of the sitter with a strong sense of individuality and emotional depth. The artwork is housed in the National Gallery of Ireland, located in Dublin, Ireland.

The painting depicts Antonia Zárate, who is seated against a muted, monochromatic background that helps to emphasize her figure. Her costume is of rich, dark coloring, furnished with delicate lace at the chest and distinctive transparent sleeves, which contrast with her pale skin. Her posture is relaxed yet dignified, with one arm resting gently on her lap, while the other supports a fan, hinting at the social customs and fashion of her time. Antonia’s face is rendered with a softness that captures her serene and contemplative expression, with dark eyes that seem to engage the viewer. Goya’s skilled brushwork endows the artwork with both a lifelike quality and a sense of immediacy. The depiction and its Romantic spirit showcase Goya’s ability to convey the personality and stature of his subject, making “Antonia Zárate” a fine example of his portraiture.
