Lithograph. Sheet 430 x 380mm (17 x 15"), with blindstamp in inscription area. Laid on album paper.
A portrait of Don Fernando Girón and his commanders during the successful defence of the city during the English 'Cadiz Expedition' of 1625. The elderly Girón sits in a sedan chair with his deputy commander, Diego Ruiz, standing before him. Behind can be seen different moments in the siege, with the naval attacks and land battles, including the English being chased back to their boats. The 'Cadiz Expedition' was an ill-conceived attempt by the Duke of Buckingham to gain prestige by emulating the exploits of the Elizabethan adventurers. In the autumn of 1625 nearly 100 ships and a total of 15,000 men were sent to attack Cadiz under Sir Edward Cecil, a capable soldier, but completely inexperienced at sea. Having faced heavy storms on the way they missed their main objective, a treasure ship from the Americas; and when Cecil landed his troops he realised he didn't have the supplies to maintain them. The landed troops resorted to scavenging, and unfortunately found too many wine vats. When Cecil gave the inevitable order to withdraw over a thousand troops were left behind, so drunk that the counter-attacking Spanish could run them through where they lay (depicted by the building at the centre of the background). The expedition cost the English an estimated £250,000, and in 1626, when Parliament attempted to impeach Buckingham for the ineptitude of the planning, Charles I had to dissolve Parliament to protect his favourite. Although attributed here to Eugenio Caxés, the painting was painted by Francisco de Zurbarán in 1634 and is now in the Prado Museum. This lithograph is from the 'Colección lithographica de cuadros del rey de España el señor Fernando VII'.

The Infante Carlos of Spain (1788-1855), son of Charles IV of Spain and first of the Carlist claimants to the Spanish throne. Shortly before his death, Carlos' brother king Ferdinand VII had changed the law (the 'Pragmatic Sanction') to permit his daughter Isabella to succeed to the throne. Carlos' claim to the throne was founded upon the illegality of the Pragmatic Sanction. From this dispute the First Carlist War took place in the 1830s, only definitively concluding in 1840, by which time Carlos had left Spain for France.

[n.d., c.1795.]
Mezzotint, very scarce. Sheet 500 x 350mm, 19¾ x 13¾". Trimmed to plate, several paper cracks, damaged.
Portrait of Don Manuel Francisco Domingo de Godoy (1767-1851), seated before the goddess Peace, who holds an olive branch above him. Behind is a bust of Charles IV, who made Godoy Prime Minister of Spain in 1792. Godoy has given the title of '1st principe de la Paz' (1st Prince of the Peace) in 1795 for negotiating the Treaty of Basel, which withdrew Spain from the War of the First Coalition against revolutionary France. This proved to be a disaster for Spain: the closer ties with France led to war with Portugal and Great Britain, the Battle of Trafalgar in 1805, then popular revolt against Charles IV in 1808. Godoy went into exile and was not allowed to return until 1844.
