From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Eduardo Zamacoïs (1843-71) was a Spanish genre painter, born at Bilbao. He studied chiefly under Madrazo in Madrid, and in Paris under Meissonier, whose art his own somewhat resembles. His works are set in sumptuous interiors, and display great technical dexterity, brilliancy of color, and subtle humor. Many are in the United States, including:

  • "The King's Favorite" and "Sleeping Hunter" (Metropolitan Museum, New York)
  • "Spain 1812 — French Occupation" and "Waiting at the Church Door" (Walters collection, Baltimore)
  • "Fortuny's Model" (Ex-Senator W. A. Clark, New York)
