    Background: A 16-YEAR-OLD BRITISH SCHOOLBOY HAS HELPED HIS ART DEALER FATHER BUY A GBP50,000 GOYA PORTRAIT. EDMUND PEEL, WHO IS STUDYING IN MADRID, PERSONALLY CONDUCTED TWO MONTHS OF SECRET AND DELICATE NEGOTIATIONS WITH THE PICTURE'S SPANISH OWNERS BEFORE CLINCHING THE DEAL. THE GOYA IS NOW IN BRITAIN.

    THE PAINTING CONCERNED IS LA TIRANA (THE TYRANT), GOYA'S IMPRESSION OF THE TEMPESTUOUS SPANISH ACTRESS ROSARIO FERNANDEZ. PEEL'S FATHER LEARNED LAST OCTOBER IT WAS UP FOR SALE WHEN HE VISITED THE WIFE OF ITS LATE OWNER, THE COUNT OF LERIDA, WHO WAS SETTLING HIS ESTATE. HE LEFT THE NEGOTIATIONS TO HIS STUDENT SON.

    BUT PEEL, WHO HAS BEEN BUYING PICTURES SINCE HE WAS SIX, SAYS IT IS NOT THE BEST PAINTING HE'S BOUGHT. HE ALREADY OWNS A CONSTABLE, AMONG OTHERS.

    NOW HE'S ON A NEW ASSIGNMENT IN MADRID - ARRANGING AN EXHIBITION IN ENGLAND OF THE LEADING SPANISH IMPRESSIONIST JOAQUIN SOROLLA, WHO DIED IN 1923. LATER, HE HOPES TO ENTER HIS FATHER'S BUSINESS.
