Joaquín Agrasot y Juan
Joaquín Agrasot y Juan (1836 - 1919) was a Spanish painter of the Realistic style who produced many works in the Costumbrismo genre.
Although he largely devoted himself to Costumbrismo paintings, which were often criticized as being too commercial, his paintings on historical subjects were very popular.
In 1884, the Spanish government bought his painting "The Death of the Marqués del Duero" for display in the Senate.
