"Great painters are invariably great technicians. In creating the techniques he needed to express his ideas, Velazquez became one of the most original practitioners of the art of painting ever known. In this richly illustrated book, two widely recognised specialists on Velazquez - one an art historian, the other a conservation scientist - combine their expertise to show exactly how Spain's most famous painter realised his artistic vision." "More than two hundred photographs of details of Velazquez's paintings vividly demonstrate how the artist realised his vision of man and nature through a highly allusive, economical manner of painting."--BOOK JACKET.

"This book explores Velazquez's almost universal popularity. Accompanying a major exhibition at the National Gallery, London, it contextualises the artist's work and discusses his influence. Manet famously called him 'the painter's painter', and this book seeks to explain how, and why, his painterly, elegant compositions resonate so strongly with our Post-Impressionist sensibilities." "Written by world-class Velazquez scholars, the book surveys the artist's entire career, from his studies in Seville and Italy to his final great works at the court of Philip IV. It includes a full catalogue and chronology."--BOOK JACKET.

"Spain's greatest baroque painter, Velazquez was an artist of tremendous gifts who painted portraits of Spanish nobility that imbued his subjects with mystery, as well as quotidian scenes of cheerful and satisfying domestic activities. For more than thirty years, Velazquez resided in the palace of his patron, King Philip IV, as a court painter, executing portraits of the king and members of the royal family and court, some of whom are most famously depicted in his towering masterpiece Las Meninas (The Ladies-in-Waiting), of 1656, a veritable theater of perspective interplay and baroque illusion." "Like all books in The Rizzoli Art Classics series, this book is a beautifully illustrated monograph, offering high-quality reproductions in a compact, accessible volume. This book features a literary introduction by a renowned art historian, a thoroughly researched essay, and captions describing the artist's most famous canvases. A useful appendix section includes an extensive chronology of the artist's life and important historical events of his time; a compilation of writings by well-known historians, insight into each painter's stylistic development; a geographical table detailing the location of each painting in the book; and a concise bibliography with suggested further readings."--BOOK JACKET.

"The National Gallery in London houses one of the world's greatest collections of works by the seventeenth-century painter Diego Velázquez. In this film Leah Kharibian investigates his paintings, both those in the Gallery and elsewhere, and attempts to explain this Spanish master's almost universal popularity. Velázquez was born in Seville in 1599, and studied there before being called to Madrid and the court of King Philip IV in 1623. He remained the king's court painter until he died in 1660, producing portraits of Philip's family and decorating his palaces, while also executing paintings for himself and other patrons. In 1656 he completed the picture known as The family of Philip IV (Las Meninas), which is now in the Museo Nacional del Prado. It is one of the most ambitious paintings ever made -- a vast canvas showing a group of figures in Velázquez's cavernous studio in Alcazár, the palace of the Spanish royal family in Madrid. Through this majestic work Kharibian surveys Velázquez's entire career, explaining how he came to make one of the great masterpieces of European painting"--Container.
