VELAZQUEZ: 1599-1660

Email this review


A large and sumptuous tribute to the 17th century Spanish court portraitist who must have captured the most imposing collection of Hapsburg noses and jaws ever depicted by one mortal. The detailed, scholarly, entertaining text follows the development of Velazquez' artistry from the early genre works to the final amazing studies in texture and spatial relationships.
