Exceedingly rare autograph receipt by the Spanish Baroque painter Bartolome Esteban Murillo

Spanish Baroque painter (1617–1682) celebrated for his religious works and his realistic portrayals of everyday life; his widely imitated paintings proved influential in Europe through the 19th century. Exceedingly rare ADS in Spanish, signed “Ba'me Murrillo,” one page, 8.5 x 6, March 13, 1674. Handwritten receipt for 80 Reales ("ochenta Reales"), which he received from Don Juan Antonio de la Torre as a two-year rent for some houses in Pilas. In full (translated): "I received from Mr. Don Juan Antonio de la Torre eighty reales de bellón for the rent of two years of a tribute that Your Grace pays for some houses he has in the town of Pilas that belong to some chaplaincies that I administer, and it is from the rent of the years seventy-two and seventy-three, and in truth, he signed it for me." These houses were part of the dowry of Murillo's wife, Doña Beatriz de Cabrera y Sotomayor. Mounted by its left edge to a slightly larger card and in fine condition.
