Bandit and military, couple. Oil paintings on boards. LUCAS VILLAAMIL, Eugenio (Madrid, 1858-1919). They present a signature and remains of a 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 “paintings of types”, showing the conception that was had 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 in both style and theme (in addition, he copied some of Goya's paintings), and he was protected by José Lázaro Galdiano. Thus, in addition to traditional Madrid, bullfights, etc., he was also known for his portraits, his urban prints (of upper and lower 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 Royal Academy of Fine Arts of San Fernando (Madrid), the National Museum of Romanticism (Madrid), etc.
