Joaquín Inza: honorary academic at the Accademia Clementina

Nadia Nached Prieto


The study investigates the spanish painter Joaquín Inza (1736-1811), portraitist of Charles III, and pay special attention to his short-term italian stay towards the end of 1778. This stay is witnessed by two unpublished documents. The first consists in a piece of news published in the Gazzetta di Parma on 28 February 1779. Conversely, the second is his appointment as an honorary academic at the Accademia Clementina in Bologna. To these documents must be added the discovery of a portrait of Charles III preserved at the Real Collegio di Spagna in Bologna. The portrait, always kept in the College, since the time of his commission, represents an important figurative testimony of this painter’s italian passage, so far devoid of known pictorial documents.
