Portrait group: The singer Farinelli and friends
(c. 1750-1752)
Jacopo AMIGONI

This striking portrait presents the renowned Italian castrato Carlo Broschi (1705–82), called Farinelli, when he was singing at the court in Madrid during the early 1750s. Farinelli sits at the centre of an intimate circle of friends, including Teresa Castellini, the prima donna of the Madrid opera; the Abate Metastasio, Farinelli’s lifelong friend and the librettist for many of his most famous performances; and the artist, who stands behind Farinelli. The singer was reportedly in love with Castellini who was about to leave Madrid and return to Italy when this portrait was made. It is thus a lament and a celebration of friendship.
