Join us for a virtual Art Talk to discuss one of the most remarkable paintings in Western art history: Las Meninas by Spanish painter Diego Velazquez.
Recognized by many art critics as one of the most important paintings in Western art history, ‘Las Meninas’ is “Velázquez’s supreme achievement, a highly self-conscious, calculated demonstration of what painting could achieve, and perhaps the most searching comment ever made on the possibilities of the easel painting”.
We will talk about the influence of art in politics in 17th-century Spain and the ideas Velazquez was really trying to convey in this fascinating painting.
The talk will be conducted mainly in Spanish and English will be used just for clarification. All levels are welcome!
