The Bull-Fighter's Salute, 1869
Signed, lower right: Fortuny
Oil on canvas/ huile sur toile
61x50.2cm


The bull-fighter salutes the crowd after having killed the bull. This may be a depiction of the bull-ring in Madrid, and the figure could be a portrait. It is one of a small number of scenes of this type executed by the artist and probably originates from one of his trips to Spain in 1867/8 and 1870/2.

The painting was possibly commissioned in Paris in 1869; said to have been painted in 1869. It is probably identifiable as a picture sent by the artist for exhibition and sale in London in 1873.
