Molti Ritratti: King Alfonso XIII

1 month ago   |   By Art Contrarian

Spanish King Alfonso XIII (1886-1941) abdicated his throne in 1931, dying ten years later in Rome of a heart attack at age 54. Biographical information can be found here .
Even in the age of photography, kings and other royalty had formal painted portraits made of themselves. So it was with Alfonso. Most of the artists who painted him were Spaniards, if Internet image searches are evidence. Some of the artists represented below are unknown to me, but three are important, one of whom was not Spanish.
