PORTRAITS AND FURNITURE

Museo Pedro de Osma

The Pedro de Osma Museum has gathered here the most significant portraits in its collection from the 18th century.

The most outstanding is undoubtedly that of Charles III. The engraving that captured his features and the decorative details of his accounterments was made by Luys Bonnardel, who from Cadiz disseminated the image of a young king created by Piazzeta.

The portrait of Charles IV is a magnificent example of illustration and color which, judging by its formal features, originates from an unknown engraving.

There are other portraits of Spanish kings and queens painted in Andean workshops -such as the Portrait of Fernando King of Castilla.

The museum also exhibits exquisite examples of colonial domestic furniture, decorated with embedded fine materials such as ivory or mother of pearl. This opulent piece is composed of three dismountable tiers, each tier featuring five faces of drawers marked by Solomonic columns.

Inside the central face, it contains two private devotional paintings.

The museum also features a chest fabricated in a similar manner.
