Spanish, 19th century, male.

Born 9 February 1817, in Madrid; died 11 September 1870, in Madrid.


A certain amount of confusion has led earlier biographers to assume that Eugenio Lucas Velázquez was the same artist as Lucas y Padilla. Lucas y Padilla was born in Alcalá de Henares in 1824 but is believed to have died, like Lucas Velázquez, on 11 September 1870 in Madrid.
