A Captive Audience by

A Spanish painter known for his depictions of the aristocracy, Mariano Alonso Perez Y Villagrossa found his own unique style in the midst of the explosion of painting styles across numerous countries during the 19th century. A court painter similar to the great Francisco José de Goya y Lucientes, Villagrossa focused on scenes of ladies and gentlemen at their leisure. Romantic in style, his imagery functions as both a commentary and a chronicle of his era. His compositions are complex, often with many vignettes within one canvas, and highly detailed with a slightly pastel palette. Today, his works are highly sought after at home and on the international market.
