Exhibition at the Grand Palais, Paris, 25 March - 13 July 2015
Velázquez is one of the most representative artists of the Spanish Golden Age, era of cultural influence of Spain in 16th and 17th century Europe. This period of great literary and artistic vitality coincides with the political decline and the end of the Habsburg dynasty in Spain with Philip III, Philip IV and Charles II.
Beyond the portraits, his talent expresses in his early religious representations, in picaresque interior or tavern scenes, still lifes and landscapes, mythological figures and history painting.
Through a complete overview of his works, almost 200 of them being presented, this catalogue of the first exhibition devoted in France to Velázquez recounts his career, from the first influences he got to the ones he exercised on later artists.
