Original title

Retrato del emperador Carlos V, joven
National Sculpture Museum
Valladolid
Valladolid, Castile-Leon
Valladolid

A sculpture of the emperor's face when he was quite young, which was his official image at the time.

The sculpture intends to exalt the emperor politically and the young face is lacking the vitality and power that appear in future representations of the emperor. Two similar portraits are preserved, made of polychrome clay, in museums in Bruges and Gante.
