Catalogue Note

A highly important Spanish painter of the 17th century, Carreño was considered, after Velázquez, to be one of the most accomplished portrait painters of his day, producing many royal likenesses as Pintor del Rey from 1669. Many of his religious subjects date to his later years, combining compositional schemes inspired by Rubens and Van Dyck with a technique inspired by the careful study of Venetian masters, especially Titian. Pérez Sánchez (see Literature, 1995) catalogues this work as dated 1667.
