Major figure in the history of art, Diego Velàzquez (1599-1660) is with no doubt the most famous painter of the spanish golden age. The exhibition makes his work converse with many other canvasses of his time he might have known, admired or influenced. The exhibition also shows the variations of the styles and subjects of Velazquez’ first compositions, the passage between naturalism and caravagism, and his hability to execute landscapes as well as portraits and history painting.
