Baroque   •   Diego Velázquez @ Wikipedia

Diego Velázquez, born in Seville on June 6, 1599, is still considered one of the most important portrait painters of his time. He worked mainly as a painter at the court of the Spanish King Philip IV. Here he created his most famous work " Las Meninas " (The Royal Family).

Diego Velázquez was a student of Peter Paul Rubens . Later he was appointed Curator of the Royal Art Collection in Madrid. His portraits convey an almost plastic expression through precise brushwork. Although Velázquez was a master of his craft, he was plagued by doubts about his art and life all his life. He was considered a quiet and reserved person. This he expressed again and again in his paintings. They are pictures full of silence, order, symbolism and mysticism. The figures of his works sometimes seem stiff and wooden in their body language.

Life was not tangible to Diego Velázquez, he also doubted his eternity. But precisely out of this doubt, his later pictures became more experimental. Clear outlines were blurred, many works were inspirational while painting, no longer painstakingly designed and prepared. This style influenced many later painters such as Francisco de Goya or the Impressionist Édouard Manet . The symbolism of his works opened up many possibilities for interpretations and interpretations. Diego Velázquez died on August 6, 1660 in Madrid. © Meisterdrucke
