Biography
Don Gaspar de Haro y Guzmán was the nephew of Don Gaspar de Guzmán, Conde Duque de Olivares, the prime minister of Philip IV of Spain. Haro y Guzmán formed one of the most important picture collections in Europe in the third quarter of the 17th century, including Raphael's 'Alba Madonna' now in the National Gallery, Washington, Correggio's 'School of Love' and Velázquez's 'Rokeby Venus', both now in the National Gallery, London. His only daughter married the 10th Duque de Alba, thus uniting the house of Alba with those of Olivares, Carpio, and Monterrey.
