Charles IV of Spain and His Family is an oil on canvas painting by the Spanish artist Francisco Goya who began work on this painting in 1800 and completed it in the summer of 1801. It features life sized depictions of Charles IV of Spain and his family, ostentatiously dressed in fine costume and jewelry

Théophile Gautier famously described the figures as looking like "the corner baker and his wife after they won the lottery." (as quoted by Goya scholar Fred Licht).
