ABSTRACT
This essay analyzes several issues relating to Philip V's art collections, beginning with the influence of his grandfather Louis XIV. Together with dynastic tradition, the awareness of the academic doctrines of Félibien and Le Brun, the closeness to the quietism of Madame Guyon and the familiarity with amateurs such as Piles or Fénelon unquestionably furnished his cultural makeup. Another aspect that I will deal with is the presumed process of españolización of Philip d'Anjou's manners and portraits and the corresponding afrancesamiento of the royal court and its artists. Finally, I will look at the role of Antiquity in the definition of King Philip's collecting preferences.
