Abstract

Fernando Enríquez Afán de Ribera, third Duke of Alcalá (1583-1637), was an important statesman and art collector and a member of a leading noble family of Andalusia. His artistic and literary interests are partially recorded in scattered references in Pacheco's Arte de la pintura. He is also known to have been a patron of Jusepe de Ribera. The discovery of an inventory of the contents of his palace in Seville, the famous Casa de Pilatos, now permits a fuller reconstruction of Alcalá's collection of painting and sculpture. Compiled shortly after the duke's return from his tenure as viceroy of Naples (1629-31), the inventory not only lists the works but also furnishes some indication of when and where they were acquired. A second inventory made after the duke's death documents a further stage in the formation of a collection that contained pictures attributed to important Spanish and Italian painters, including Velázquez, Pantoja, Reni, Arpino, and Artemisia Gentileschi, among others.
