1806, Mar 81857, Apr 9
a Spanish painter in the Romantic style who specialized in portraits. In 1831, already married and in need of work, he moved to Madrid and enrolled at the Real Academia de Bellas Artes de San Fernando, becoming a merit scholar. He was also involved in the intellectual life of Madrid and, in 1837, was an active participant in founding the local "Artistic and Literary Lyceum", where he gave classes in anatomy, a subject that he would later teach at the San Fernando Academy. He returned to Seville in 1839, suffering from an illness that left him nearly blind.
