The Museo del Prado is presenting an unpublished work by Velázquez donated to American Friends by William B. Jordan

A Portrait of Philip III, a painting recently attributed to Velázquez, has been donated to the non-profit organisation American Friends of the Prado Museum by William B. Jordan, a leading specialist in Spanish still-life painting.  With this donation American Friends of the Prado Museum is embarking on a direction determined by its mission to support the Museum and work closely with it, and the reception of this masterpiece represents a major event in its first year of existence.  With the intention of reinforcing cultural ties between the United States and Spain through the Museo del Prado and its historic holdings, American Friends is now placing this magnificent work on deposit with the Prado for its display in the context of the permanent collection, contributing to a more complete and detailed understanding of Velázquez’s initial period as a royal portraitist.
