Event description

Description

Velázquez’s move to Madrid, facilitated by his artistic circles in Seville, enabled him to join a relatively newly formed court and work directly for Philip IV. Jacqueline Cockburn reveals how his portrayals of characters at court and his searing sensitivity when depicting the king’s children made him a popular artist, and his lavish use of paint and understanding of perspective set him apart from many other artists at the time.

This is the 2nd lecture in a season of talks focusing on Spanish painting from the 16th to 20th centuries. You might also like to consider these lectures:-
