Goya's portrait of Ferdinand Guillemardet, France's ambassador to Spain from 1798 to 1800, mirrors the self-confidence of the young republic the sitter represented. The colors of France, which feature on the ambassador's scarf and cocked hat, allowed the artist to use a bright palette. In this painting, Goya the portraitist shows himself worthy of being Velázquez's sucessor.
