Footnotes

  • We are grateful to Dr. Benito Navarrete for pointing out that the present composition is directly inspired by a work by Arellano that was engraved by Adrian Collaert (see Alfonso E. Pérez Sánchez, Juan de Arellano 1614-1676, exhibition catalogue (Madrid, 1998), p. 71, fig. 22). The composition would also appear to relate to one of the pictures referred to in the artist's inventory, compiled on the 20th October, 1676 as 'five canvases of ... the five senses' (M. Agulis y Cobo, Una familia de pintores los Arellano (exhibition catalogue, Madrid, 1988), p. 34, no. 14). A complete series of the senses by Arellano is located in Oviedo, in the Masaveu collection. There are also some single examples, such as An Allegory of Smell, in a private collection in Madrid, of similar dimensions to the present work.
