    This picture was acquired by the March family with Son Galcerán. It has been suggested that the sitter is Luis Salvador, Archduke of Habsburg, Lotringa and Bourbon (1847-1915), who owned and enlarged the Villa. An explorer, writer and artist who first visited the island in 1867 and spent much of his life there, the Archduke was instrumental in preserving the untouched rural coastline and historic buildings of the North coast.

    Special Notice

    No VAT will be charged on the hammer price, but VAT at 15% will be added to the buyer's premium which is invoiced on a VAT inclusive basis.


    Provenance

    Luis Salvador, Archduke of Hapsburg, Lotringa and Bourbon, Son Galcerán Mallorca and thence by descent.
