Notes The contacts between the Duke of Braganza (future John IV, King of Portugal) and Rubens started in 1628 with the artist visit to Spain. When John, Duke of Braganza, afterwards King of Portugal, desired him, during his stay at Madrid, to pay him a visit, at his famed hunting-seat, the Villa Viciosa, the artist accepted the invitation.
