Commentary: Snow 2007rn"A companion piece to the art. in Goya [1976] on Alfonso in the presentation miniatures. Here, the focus is on Alfonso depicted, principally, in Escorial T.I.1 in the miniatures accompaying the loores. Alfonso is always regal in these depictions, almost always surrounded by court retainers, but is shown in a variety of iconographical positions of familiarity (with the Virgin, with his subjects, with Christ). The realism is in the troubadour garb, for Alfonso is nearly always portrayed as young, i. e., idealized. It would be interesting to see how Alfonso is portrayed in miniatures accompanying the miragres in which he figures."
