Raimundo de Madrazo y Garreta - An Evening Out & Preparing for the Costume Ball

Tonight I’m pleased to share a pair of works by Spanish artist Raimundo de Madrazo y Garreta. Functioning foremost as portraits, both of these works invite the viewer to share their subjects’ enthusiasm for the night ahead as we watch them prepare their make-up and costumes. Raimundo really captured a feeling of enjoyment from these two women. Though these works lack the depth present in some of my other “Ball” selections, they compensate by exhibiting a candid quality which registers as sincere rather than something staged for an ambitious narrative. These works wisely feature minimal backgrounds as not to detract from the subjects. Good choice.
