I start with the picture named The IX Duke of Osuna and his family, by Goya. It shows don Pedro de Alcántara Téllez-Girón y Pacheco with his wife Josefa countess-duchess of Benavente and their four children Josefa Manuela, Joaquina, Francisco de Borja and Pedro, prince of Anglona.

Goya painted at least three of the siblings as adults many years later.

The palace and garden that Josefa Pimentel made built for her in the outskirts of Madrid at the beginnings of the XIX century is now a public garden called El Capricho.
