Summary Velázquez is one of the most admired European painters who ever lived, and an authority and influence for generations of artists to come. This catalog raisonne brings together Velázquez's complete works, reproduced in extra-large format, with a selection of enlarged details and brand new photography of recently restored paintings. The book's images are accompanied by insightful commentary from José López-Rey on Velázquez's interest in human liveliness and equal attention to all subjects, from an old woman frying eggs, to a pope or a king, as well as his commitment to colour and light, which would influence the Impressionists over two centuries later.
