Portrait of a Young Man

Former Attribution Goya (Francisco de Goya y Lucientes) Spanish

Not on view

Because of its similarity in style and format to Goya's portrait of his lithography printer, Gaulon, this work was once thought to be his portrait of Gaulon's son. Only two impressions of the print are known. This impression was once owned by Frédéric Villot, a close friend of Delacroix and curator of paintings at the Musée du Louvre during the 1850's. The other example, now in the British Museum, belonged to the Parisian art critic and fine print collector Philippe Burty (1830-1890), who owned several of the prints by Goya shown in this exhibition. If not by Goya, this lithograph is likely to be the work of an artist in Delacroix's circle.
