DALLAS (AP) — One of Francisco Goya’s last paintings, a portrait of his only grandson, has been acquired by the Meadows Museum.

The portrait of Mariano Goya from 1827 will be unveiled to the public Friday at the museum on Southern Methodist University’s campus in Dallas.

The work is one of fewer than a dozen portraits known to have been painted by Goya between 1820 and his death in 1828 at the age of 82. It shows a portraiture style marked by simplified compositions that Goya developed late in his career, after he stopped doing commissioned portraits.

The portrait, finished just months before Goya’s death, was previously owned by a private collector and hasn’t been on display for more than 40 years.

The museum focused on Spanish art didn’t disclose the purchase price.
