Catalogue Note

The composition reflects a lost original by Ribera that formed part of the set of philosophers painted by the artist for Don Fernando Enrique Afan de Rivera, 3rd Duke of Alcala and Viceroy of Naples, in around 1629-31. A version given to Ribera in full was sold New York, Christie's, 6 April 2006, lot 69 and Spinosa lists a number of studio versions, although none of them appear to correspond to the present painting.1
