This paper includes the first impressions, a formal analysis, and a comparison between Giovanni Mattista Moroni's painting, "Gian Lodovico Madruzzo", and Franscisco de Goya's painting, "Portrait of General Jose Manuel Romero". An argument is made that Goya's painting shows its subject in a more ambivalent light, whereas Moroni creates a more personal and flattering image of his subject.
From the Paper:"Giovanni Battista Moroni's "Gian Lodovico Madruzzo" and Francisco de Goya's "Portrait of General Jose Manuel Romero" exhibit a number of similarities and differences. Both paintings depict a similar type of subject in the same medium of oil on canvas. Despite these similarities, the paintings are quite different in terms of style and the ways that the subject is shown. Moroni attempts to show the personal side of his subject while still maintaining respectability. Goya, however, emphasizes the military and social role of his subject by minimizing his subject's surroundings and maximizing the subject's image within the framed portrait."
