This drawing represents a "mayoral" and his mount, the mayoral is the person in the toro farms in charge of the whole herd. This representation shows the extent to which the artist was inhabited by the world of bullfighting, as were the great Spanish painters such as Pablo Picasso, Miró or Goya.
The dimensions are those of the leaf alone, the frame is not taken into account.
This drawing comes from one of the artist's sketchbooks. The artist's coat of arms is reproduced on the back of the work. This coat of arms was on the drawing book from which this sheet came. The current owner decided to have it framed to be able to enjoy it fully.
