Collection: Diego Velàzquez

Spanish court painter Diego Velàzquez (1599-1660) was a master of the Baroque style. His keen power of observation, careful technique, and naturalistic depiction of his subjects make him one of art history's greatest portraitists. Beyond the influence he wielded in his day, his paintings impacted the work of many modern and contemporary artists including Pablo Picasso, Salvador Dali, and Edouard Manet.
