Bad job. Watercolor. Signed towards the lower left corner. LLANECES, JOSÉ DE SAN BARTOLOMÉ (Madrid, Spain, 1863-1919). José de San Bartolomé was a Spanish painter and sculptor who worked since he was a child in the photographer Herbert's workshop and began his training at the School of Arts and Crafts of Madrid, expanding it at the Higher School of Painting of the Academy of San Fernando, while copying works of the Prado masters. In 1886 he settled in Paris, dedicating himself above all to genre painting in the wake of Fortuny, a theme that enjoyed great commercial success. He meets Francisco Domingo, who opens the doors of the Buenos Aires market, where he will receive important painting and sculpture commissions. He was Secretary of the Society of Artists of Paris, in 1894 he was appointed knight of the order of Charles III, in 1901 of the Legion of Honor and, in 1902, commander of the order of Isabel la Católica. At the beginning of the century he returned to Spain, and dedicated himself mainly to portraiture, although he also created landscapes and popular subjects. He enjoyed the protection of royalty, an example of which is the portraits he painted of Queen María Cristina and several court figures. In 1925 the Paris Salon paid him a posthumous tribute with an exhibition of his work held in France. Work by Llaneces is preserved in the Prado Museum, the Pablo Sarasate Museum in Pamplona and in the Spanish embassy in Paris.
