A SPANISH duke is playing chaperone to his family’s rare art collection stateside.
The Duke of Alba (Carlos Fitz-James Stuart y Martinez de Irujo) is heading up the team bringing the priceless artwork to the USA for the very first time.
The collection includes 130 works from across their Spanish palaces with works by Titian, Goya, Rubens, Rembrandt, Ingres, Sorolla and Renoir.
A Dallas’ museum is the lucky location for Treasures from the House of Alba: 500 years of art and collecting.
The news comes after his younger brother Cayetano Martinez housed two Syrian families in his Sevilla palace.
