Unarguably the most important artist of the Spanish Golden Age, Velázquez is celebrated for taking painting out of its traditional confines. His innovative technique, loose brushstrokes, and treatment of light have even made some critics consider him an early precursor of Impressionism.
In this workshop we will discuss the role of the artist in Spanish Golden Age, the historical context and its influence on Velázquez trajectory; we will analyse Velázquez’s extraordinary style and some of his most acclaimed masterpieces; and of course, we will examine in detail his most intriguing work “Las Meninas”.
