National Gallery of Art in D.C. Part II

The extraordinary artwork was created in the 17th, 19th, and 20th Centuries.

Peter Paul Reubens’ Marchesa Brigda Spinola Doria: Marquess Giacomo Massimiliano Doria commissioned the portrait of his bride – they married on 7/9/1605 – and the painting remained in his ownership until his death in 1613 when it passed to his brother, Giovanni Carlo Doria (1576–1625). It subsequently became the property of Marchessa Brigida Spinola-Doria’s second husband, probably in 1625, passing back to the Marchesa until her death in 1661. It remained in the family until given to relatives of Rati Opizzone. By 1848, it was held in Paris by Simon Horsín-Déon. Four years later, in 1854, the portrait was in London and sold several times before being purchased by the Samuel H. Kress foundation in 1957 who donated it to the National Gallery of Art in 1961.
