"Velazquez" the Grand Palais, Paris.

« Velazquez » the Grand Palais, Paris

Born in Seville in 1599, Velazquez is one of the most important figures in history of art, in every style and of every era. Leader of the Spanish schooling system,

an artist appointed by King Philippe IV at a time when Spain ruled the world, he is one of the most famous and admired artists of his time as well as today. No monographic exhibition in France had ever shown the genius that Manet describes as “the painter of painters”. The rarity of his canvases (barely one hundred in total) and their legitimate focus on the Prado Museum in Madrid, made the organisation of a complete retrospective quite a test. This was the challenge overcome by the Louvre and the Grand Palais as they present this exceptional exhibition.
Until 13th July.
