Through around thirty works this catalogue analyses the development of Velázquez’s court portraits from his second trip to Rome in 1649 till his death in Madrid in 1660. In addition to fourteen works by the artist himself, this publication includes portraits produced in his circle with the aim of focusing on the complex process behind the creation of the royal image. The catalogue also traces the subsequent development of the Spanish court portrait after Velázquez’s death when artists such as Mazo and Carreño reinterpreted his ideas.
