This is ultimately a gallery Swedish woman who won the auction at 1,400,000 euros (1.800.000 euro with the costs). The table was estimated 200.000/300.000 euros. It has therefore made seven times its low estimate.

Ribera had only twenty years when he painted around 1610, this work. The artist, particularly renowned for his many portraits later, then lived at Rome and was not yet known as the great painter of Naples.

This new discovery to the cabinet Hyacinths was introduced after those of the Judith and Holofernes by Caravaggio and the Christ mocked by Cimabue.

All these his followers speak a lot to our generation, shaped by the cinema, so accustomed to the artificial illumination, to the violence of the projectors.

By appearing to be a philosopher-geometer the torn clothing, "Ribera said that intelligence is not related to the appearance. Far from the stereotypical representations of the great thinkers of Antiquity, with their white beards, and their noble appearance, the artist prefers to represent an old man, wrinkled, dressed in rags", had stressed to the AFP Stéphane Pinta, an expert at the law firm Hyacinths, which has identified this painting.

He had explained that he recognized the authenticity of the canvas and subtle play of white and grey and the use of large impasto and brush very hard.

This character, with his prominent ears, his wrinkles, his complexion tanned by the sun was a professional model that the painters did ask, and the young Ribera was represented on six other tables.

"All of these his followers speak a lot to our generation, shaped by the cinema, so accustomed to the artificial illumination, to the violence of the spotlight", was analyzed Stéphane Pinta.
