Paintings reproductions - Diego Velazquez
Diego Velázquez (baptized June 6, 1599 in Seville, died August 6, 1660 in Madrid) is a Spanish portraitist and painter of religious and genre scenes. At first he drew his knowledge from Francisco de Herrera, who taught him how to breathe life into genre scenes in a unique way.
His true fame, however, only began when Diego received an invitation to the court of Philip IV to make his portrait. The work made by the painter was so much appreciated by the ruler that he was offered a job as a painter of a royal family. This was the most important and most important distinction that the painter could have received at that time.
The number of Diego Velázquez's works does not exceed 170.
Selected works: Three musicians, Christ Crucified, Jelenia's Head, Volcanic Smithy, Mars, Woman with a needle, Portrait of a jester with a dog.
