About Tubercio Pérez Cuervo

The artwork titled “Tubercio Pérez Cuervo” is a creation by the esteemed artist Francisco Goya, completed in the year 1820. This portrait is an oil on canvas piece, exhibiting dimensions of 102 by 81 centimeters. It is an exemplification of the Romanticism art movement, a genre known for its emphasis on emotion and individualism as well as the glorification of the past and nature.

In the artwork, a male figure is depicted with noticeable clarity and prominence against a dark, subdued background. The subject is positioned slightly off-center and appears to be engaging directly with the viewer, his gaze emanating a sense of confidence or self-assuredness. The lighting accentuates the man’s facial features and the texture of his white shirt which contrasts strikingly with his dark attire. His posture—arms folded across his chest—suggests a casual yet calculated composure. Attention to detail is evident in the realistic rendering of the textures, particularly in the folds of the shirt and the life-like quality of the skin. The subdued palette and the intimate scale of the portrait are characteristic of Goya’s style during this period, which often focused on the psychological depth and complex emotions of his subjects.
