I've always liked the charming portraits by Giuseppe Bonito of the daughters of Carlos III:



Maria Isabel (1743-1749)



Maria Josefa (1744-1801)



Maria Luisa (1745-1792)

I am interested in Infanta Maria Luisa of whom I know basically nothing .

Did she play any significant role on the austrian court or did she limited to the usual role of breeding children to her husband and emperor ?

Did she have any special gifts ?

A nice picture of the Infanta Maria Josefa, allegedly by Mengs (though Steffi Roettgen, in her catalogue raisonnÚ, doesn't think so), from Caserta.

You can read something about Maria Luisa (or Maria Ludovica) here:
