Velazquez - imagine the opportunity to spend a weekend with this celebrated Spanish painter and learn about his life: to study his work, to observe the use of tools and techniques firsthand, and to witness the joys and rigors of life in the seventeenth century. This delightful book offers such a chance. The text cleverly weaves insightful information into an amusing weekend excursion. Join Velazquez as he strolls through the palace of Philip IV among the courtiers and servants. Watch him paint, hear of his travels, and visit with the princess and her ladies, who have their official portraits done by the master himself. Through the beautiful reproductions of his paintings, and first-person narrative, a child learns about the art of Velzquez as well as what it means to be an artist. Translated into English from the French by Ann Keay Beneduce.
