Diego Velazquez

Diego Velázquez was born June 6, 1599 in Seville, Spain.

At a young age of 11, he began a 6 year apprenticeship with a local painter named Francisco Pacheco.

Diego’s early paintings were traditional religious themes, but he also became influenced by the naturalism of Italian painter named Caravaggio.

Diego set up his own studio after completing his apprenticeship in 1617. A year later, he married Pacheco's daughter, Juana

By 1621, the couple had two daughters

In 1622, Velázquez moved to Madrid

Thanks to Diego’s father-in-law's connections, he earned the chance to paint a portrait of the powerful Count-Duke of Olivares.

The count-duke then recommended Velázquez's services to King Philip IV; the young king of Spain decided that no one else would paint him and appointed Diego as one of his court painters

  • Diego Velazquez died on August 6, 1660 due to serious illness(fever) in Madrid.
