791 x 1200 • 147 KB
One of Goya's liveliest male portraits, Sureda studied cotton spinning in England in order to introduce the technique into Spain. Later he went to France to learn the secrets of Sevres porcelain manufacture and in 1802 he became the director of the Spanish Royal porcelain factory in Madrid. But Goya presented him not as a clever young industrialist but simply as an urbane young man.
