RE: 17th century Spanish painter Diego Velazquez, a giant of Western art

Between 1630 and 1632, i.e. immediately after his first trip to Italy, Diego Velazquez produced an unusual number of great paintings. These not only included his awesome 'Christ on the Cross' (which you may see in page 5 of this thread, here) plus a number of well-known portraits that have been shown along this thread, but also the charming portrait below and a few more works that will be appearing in the next couple of posts.

Another exquisite job in that lapse of time was this magnificent portrait of the infanta Doña Maria, queen of Hungary, also called Maria Anna of Spain - now in the Museo del Prado in Madrid.

Finally, two magnificent portraits of the nobility painted around those years too. So if no other master works show up that have been missed out so far, I guess we may call it a day at this point.

In closing this thread, what a pleasure to post this absolutely atypical painting of Diego Velazquez.
