Guillermo (actually Willem) Ducker was a Dutch-born portrait miniature artist, who was mentioned as working in Madrid between 1799 and 1813. It is known that Francisco de Goya, in his 1799 letter to King Carlos IV, brings the latter's attention to Ducker and recommends him as the best and most capable miniaturist to portray the imperial family; in the same letter, he is appealing to the King to free Ducker from imprisonment, so that he can immediately proceed to work.
