Item Details
Description
Spanish school; 20th century.
"Self-portrait of Velázquez", 1916.
Oil on canvas.
Signed, dated and located.
Measurements: 47 x 33.5 cm; 66 x 55 cm (frame).
The canvas presented here is based on Velázquez's Self-portrait of himself in the painting of Las Meninas, which, together with the one in the Museo de Bellas Artes in Valencia, is the only autograph of the painter that has been preserved. Velázquez is shown against a neutral background, looking at the viewer sideways and with a noble attitude, aware of his worth as a painter.
Many future artists have had the opportunity to learn by copying the works of the great masters. Despite being a very common practice during the 19th and early 20th centuries, today the Prado Museum is the only museum in the capital that admits copyists on a reduced scale so that they do not interrupt the flow of visitors.
