Diégo Velázquez

1599 (Séville) / 1660 (Madrid)
Living in : Madrid
Working in : Madrid

"Vélazquez can try anything, he always hits the right mark, he creates with each of his paintings, and even the smallest, a feeling in us of vertigo, fullness and adequacy. His hand, virtuoso, learned, free, as much as heavy of intentions, captures the world, the unreality of appearances and the reality of the gaze. What is most striking with Velasquez is, beyond the plurality of subjects, the formidable unity of a world that erects a counter - fire of sensuality and intelligence to the real world that the disintegration threatens. Velazquez is a resistance fighter who touches the absolute and constantly converts the ephemeral so that it collapses into palpable and definitive spirituality."
