Abstract

Here is the transcription of an unpublished document relating to the collection of paintings belonging to the Count Alfonso Scaramuzza Visconti (1630-1681). It was once kept in the ancient palace of his family located in the center of Pavia but it is now lost. The “Nota delli quadri” is not dated but can be traced back to the end of the seventeenth century when the family assets were involved in some inventory records. It was undoubtedly written by an expert in the sector, most likely a painter. It mentions works by artists working in Milan who were founders in the age of Federico Borromeo such as Giovanni Battista Crespi (known as Cerano) and Daniele Crespi. It also mentions masters of the following generation such as Francesco Cairo and Luigi Scaramuccia known as Perugino and other local painters. There are also some notes about some biographical events of Alfonso and his heir, his son Giuseppe. He was an important figure in the historical events and artistic patron of the city. His grandaughter Barbara D'Adda Barbiano di Belgioioso inherited some of the works cited in the note.
