Eugenio Lucas Y Padilla
Spain, 1824-1870
Two Miniature Cathedral Interior Paintings

Each oil on Copper
A follower of both Diego Velazquez and Francisco Goya,

Lucas Y Padilla's work, due to its quality and subject matter,

has often been mis-attributed to the masters, particularly to Goya.
His work resides in many museum collections,

including the Museum or Modern Arts and Metropolitan Museum in New York,
British Museum, London, and the Museo Romantico in Madrid.
His auction record is to 6 figures, with many being quite small,

as this remarkably executed pair.
