Francisco de ZurbaranSaint Serapion, 1628.

Zurbaran was also influenced by Caravaggio and the Caravaggistic style.

Saint Serapion, who participated in the Third Crusade of 1196, was martyred while preaching the Gospel to Muslims. According to one account of his martyrdom, the monk was tied to a tree, tortured, and decapitated. In this work, Zurbaran conveys the fierce devotion of Catholic Spain

In the painting, two tree branches are barely visible in the background. The small note on the right identifies him for the viewers.

Created when he was only twenty years old, this masterpiece impressively displays the command that Velazquez had for his craft. He rendered he figures with clarity and dignity, and his use of tenebrism shows an intense interest in Caravaggio’s work.

The contrast of darks and lights, along with the plebeian nature of the figures, reveal the influence of Caravaggio, whose work Velazquez had studied. The artist present this genre scene(one from everyday life) with such care and conviction it seems to convey a deeper significance.

Created when he was only twenty years old, this masterpiece impressively displays the command that Velazquez had for his craft. He rendered he figures with clarity and dignity, and his careful depiction of the water jugs in the foreground, complete with droplets of water, adds to the scene’s credibility.

Also known as the Fraga Philip, because it was painted in the town of Fraga in Aragon. Such a designation differentiates the many royal portraits from one another.

Philip IV appears as a military leader, arrayed in red and sliver campaign dress. Because the king was not a commanding presence and because he had inherited the large Hapsburg jaw (the result of dynastic inbreeding), Velazquez had to find creative ways to “ennoble” the monarch. He succeeded by focusing attention on the dazzling military regalia while not idealizing Philips appearance.

Diego Velazquez Las Meninas (The Maids of Honor), 1656.

Velazquez painted his greatest masterpiece, Las Meninas, after he returned to Spain. In it, Velazquez showed his mastery of both form and content.

The painter repreented himself in his studio standing before a large canvas, on which he may be painting this very picture or, perhaps, the portraits of King Philip IV and Queen Mariana, whose reflections appear in the mirror on the far wall.

The young Infanta (princess) Margarita appears in the foreground with her two maids-in-waiting, her favorite dwarfs, and a large dog. Velazquez extended the pictorial depth of his composition in both directions. The open doorway and its ascending staircase lead the eye beyond the artist’s studio, and the mirror device and the outward glances of several of the figures incorporate the viewer’s space into the picture as well.
