The Five Senses (Ribera)
Allegories of the Five Senses is a series of early-17th-century paintings by the Spanish artist Jusepe de Ribera. One of the series (Hearing) has been lost and is known only through copies.
According to the art historian Giulio Mancini, a contemporary of the artist, their commissioner was Spanish but they were probably produced during Ribera's stay in Rome. Alfonso Pérez Sánchez dates their production to between 1611 and 1615.
