Lookng For Velazquez
In 2019, I made a trip to Spain to examine Velazquez's life and work. I was interested in tracking down his childhood home in Seville, learning more about his early years there and examining his portraits of the performers from the king's court, portraits that rival Rembrandt for their skill and exploration of the soul
Velazquez was a mysterious figure, with a cloaked past who rarely signed his work and produced less than 200 paintings, yet his unique skills with a brush have inspired artists for centuries, including: Picasso, Manet, Francis Bacon, and Chuck Close.
