Velasquez and the Miracle of Light in Spanish Art

Diego Velasquez is spoken of in hushed tones in the Art World, but is also one of the most popular of all the Old Masters because of his magical ability to transform paint into truth. His photographic technique sets a very high bar for all painters, and his mastery of the subtlety of light, and its painted possibilities is justly renowned and celebrated. Even the most extreme modernists give Velasquez his due as a Miracle-worker. This lecture examines the artist and his work, the courtly world he inhabited, his high-powered friends (including several kings and the painter Peter Paul Rubens) and the world of art which he transformed.
