Velazquez and the golden age

Exhibition November 16, 2018 − March 3, 2019
Art at the court of Philip IV was an international language, without borders. It is this context that contributes to a better understanding of the work of Velázquez, especially since 1623. He was most influenced by the work of artists such as Titian, Tintoretto and Rubens. And one of his key events was a trip to Rome in 1629, where he became acquainted with classical and Renaissance art, and also established contacts with artists of his time.

The purpose of the exhibition is to attract the attention of viewers to the 61st picture, related to Velasquez, the Spanish royal collection and Spanish paintings of the Golden Age. More than twenty of these works were written by Italian, Flemish and French artists, including Titian, Rubens, Luca Giordano, Jan Bruegel and many others.
