Catalogue Note

Philip III appointed Cajes Painter to the King (Pintor del Rey) in 1612, hence the form of the signature. Cajes painted a similar scene, depicting the martyrdom of St. Philip in 1630 as part of the Retablo de San Felipe in Torrelaguna (see D.A. Iñiguez and A.E. Perez Sanchez, Historia de la Pintura Española. Escuela Madrileña del primer tercio del siglo XVII, Madrid 1969, pp. 231-2, nos. 33-37, reproduced plate 183).
