"The Wedding" pocket mirror
7,3 cm in diameter.
The beautiful and serene face that is contemplated in this small mirror contains a story, that of a determined and beautiful young woman who is going to marry a fat and ugly, but rich man, who rushes after her, trying to stop her. This charming accessory shows in detail the main character of The Wedding (1791-1792), one of the tapestry cartoons painted by Goya recreating scenes of daily life in Madrid in the last quarter of the 18th century and which are part of the collections of the Museo Nacional del Prado. You can always carry it with you in your bag or pocket.
