In 1925, Federico Beltrán-Masses painted Rudolph Valentino as a “Caballero Jerezano” a gentleman from Jerez in the Spanish region of Andalusia.  In 1926, the portrait received numerous press mentions exhibited at the Stendhal Art Galleries at Los Angeles’s Ambassador Hotel. The painting became apart of Valentino’s massive art collection and displayed with pride at his residence Falcon Lair.  At his estate sale, this painting was purchased by a Rambova relative. In 1951, his former mother-in law donated this painting to the Utah Museum of Fine Arts.
