Description
A monumental painting of the Spanish royal family by Diego Velázquez (1599–1660), Las Meninas (The Maids of Honor) is more than a portrait, or even a portrait of a portraitist at work. It is a masterpiece of scenes within scenes, revealing much about what surrounds the subject rather than the subject directly, and conveys remarkable effects of space and spontaneity that have influenced artists for centuries. The painting itself, the artist, and his subjects are explored in detail here. Measuring less than 5 x 7 inches, this compact and eminently portable art book nonetheless offers large reproductions, opening out with double gatefolds (more than 18 inches long) and quad-folded pages that open upward out of the book to 9 1/2 x 13 1/4 inches.
