Bandit and soldier, couple. Oils on tables. LUCAS VILLAAMIL, Eugenio (Madrid, 1858-1919). They present signature and remains of signature. This pair of tables shows, on a blue background, two male busts. Despite their detail and naturalism, they are not portraits in themselves, but rather "type paintings", showing the conception that was held at the time of a bandit or a general, in line with certain common postulates in Romanticism. Spanish. Eugenio Lucas Villaamil began his training with his father, Eugenio Lucas Velázquez, and continued it at the Special School of Painting in Madrid. His work stood out for following, to a large extent, the paternal line with a strong Goyaesque influence both in style and subject matter (in addition, he copied some of Goya's paintings), and was protected by José Lázaro Galdiano. Thus, in addition to traditional Madrid, bullfighting, etc., he was also known for his portraits, his urban prints (high and low class), etc. His work is preserved in numerous private collections and institutions such as the Prado Museum (Madrid), the Carmen Thyssen Museum (Málaga), the Lázaro Galdiano Museum (Madrid), the San Fernando Royal Academy of Fine Arts (Madrid), the National Museum of Romanticism (Madrid), etc.
