The magnificent celebration, organized in the palace church of Santiago in Madrid, was attended by the King of Spain Philip IV and his closest advisers.

And in 1643, del Maso became the personal artist of the heir to the Spanish throne prince of Asturias, who, in turn, became the godfather of the artist’s fifth child. After the sudden death of Prince del Maso, he retained his privileges and still worked at the Spanish royal court.
