Juan Antonio Llorente
oil, 116x89cm.

D. Juan Antonio Llorente, born in Rincón de Soto.

Based on the entire body portrait made by Goya (Sao Paulo museum)

To the copy, with a 3/4 format, I´ve added a table to be able to incorporate his most famous book “Critical history of the Spanish Inquisition”. Published in Paris (1818) during his exile, it damaged the image of this institution very badly. Two years after that, the institution was suspended.
