    Owner Name: Marques de Leganés

    In possession from: 1627 to 1655

    Location: Morata

    Notes:

    It is not known exactly when Marques de Leganés obtained the picture, but Wethey suggests that this portrait could be one of the pictures inventoried as a portrait and not obtained by Charles I in his purchase of the Gonzaga collection. It might have been obtained directly from Italy sometime between 1627-30. The first record of the picture is in 1642.
