Velázquez and His Times
Parkstone, 2006 - Art - 255 pages
This work retraces Velzquezs career through his masterworks and journeys, while simultaneously setting the royal and artistic background of 17th century Spain. From his beginnings at Pachecos workshop to his last years as court painter, this ambitious artist painted the most influential characters of his times and remodelled the majestic castles of Spain. Unforgettable, for his career as well as for his breathtaking technique, Velzquez offers us an impressive portrait gallery. More than a monography, the writings of the professor Carl Justi set the work of Velzquez in a historical fresco depicting the golden age of Spanish painting. Thanks to magnificent illustrations, Velzquez and his Times is to become a reference.
