Catalogue Description:
An oil painting of Doña Maria in three-quarter length and view facing to the left side of the picture in which she is seated. Her black hair is parted in the center and she has curls at either side under her ears with some flowers in her hair over her left ear. Her black velvet dress is off-the-shoulder and edged with white lace like the sleeves which come to the elbow. The bodice is pointed and the skirt gathered. She wears white gloves and there is a heavy gold chain ornament around her neck. The dress is identical with that of Doña Ana Maria de Cervantes Ozta, her sister. Condition: Good, though there are cracks on the right side of the canvas near the elbow, the dress, and on the left edge and on the right side background.
