The matador is the illustrious Cayetano Sanz y Pozas (1821Â© ï¿½1890), who Manet saw in action during an 1865 trip to SpainÂ© ï¿½his only visit, despite a longstanding fascination with seventeenth-century Spanish art. This canvas, the first of the full-length figure paintings that Manet completed after studying the works of VelÂ© zquez in Madrid, was made upon his return to France. Unlike the artistÂ© ï¿½s previous depictions of bullfighters, Cayetano Sanz carries a proper red cape. Manet showed the picture, along with some twenty others on Spanish themes, at his solo exhibition in a pavilion adjacent to the 1867 Exposition Universelle in Paris.
