Don Ygnacio Leonel Gomez de Cervantes (1762-1813).
An oil painting by an unknown artist.
He is seen in three-quarter length and view facing to the right of the picture. He wears a wig with the ends curled and stands in front of a pale pink curtain against a neutral background. There is a lace jaboe and lace at the cuffs. His coat is gold with blue inserts over a red undercoat. He holds a cane in his right hand and his left hand is in his vest. In back of the right side of his coat is a sword handle.
Condition: Good generally though there are cracks along the bottom which partially obliterate the inscription, and at the top and at the upper right hand side.
