Ribera in Australia



“The Art Gallery of New South Wales in Sydney, Australia, has announced that it acquired a work by Jusepe de Ribera, Aesop, last year.

The painting is an oil on canvas, 125 x 92 cm, executed between 1625 -31

The painting is thought to be one of the two philosopher canvases owned by the third Duke of Alcala, Viceroy of Naples. The other painting is believed to be Euclid. During the 19th century the paintings were held in the Boischevalier collection in France, where they remained until they were sold by a descendent of the family at auction in Paris in 2000. Euclid is now in the J. Paul Getty Museum in Los Angeles.
