Summary: Life is but a dream: The complete works of the visionary painter Manet called him "the greatest painter of all." Picasso was so inspired by his masterpiece Las Meninas that he painted 44 variations of it. Monet, Renoir, and Degas were heavily influenced by the paintings of Philip IV's grand chamberlain. Francis Bacon famously painted a study of his portrait of Pope Innocent X. Indeed, Diego Rodrguez de Silva y Velzquez (15991660) was more than the most important painter of the Spanish Golden Age he was considered a precursor to the Impressionists over two centuries before that movement came into being. This catalog raisonn brings together Velzquez's complete works jaw-droppingly reproduced in extra-large format with a selection of delicious enlarged detailswith insightful commentary on how his paintings give equal attention to all that they contain. To him, an old woman frying eggs or a buffoon was as important as a Pope or a King. For him, form was subservient to light and col the brushstrokes were markers to help the viewers reconstruct each picture mentallyconcepts adopted vehemently by the Impressionists. Velzquez's greatest talent was creating beauty from the grotesque, imbuing each subject with a human liveliness rarely seen on canvas. In its extensive detail and comparisons, Jos Lpez-Rey's book reveals the development of this vision . Things are or are not, they exist or vanish, in the same way that Caldern felt that life was like a dream. In the work of Velzquez, the language is everything. Thanks to the joint initiative of TASCHEN and Wildenstein, this exceptional publication features new photography of recently restored paintings, published here for the first time.

Sinopsis: The painter's painter: Light, color and penetrating portraits from Spain's Golden Age luminary Manet called him “the greatest painter of all.” Picasso was so inspired by his masterpiece Las Meninas that he painted 44 variations of it. Francis Bacon painted a study of his portrait of Pope Innocent X. Monet and Renoir, Corot and Courbet, Degas and Dalí...for so many champions of art history, the ultimate soundboard was—and remains—Diego Rodríguez de Silva y Velázquez (1599-1660).
This updated catalog raisonné brings together Velázquez’s complete works, jaw-droppingly reproduced in extra-large format, with a selection of enlarged details and brand new photography of recently restored paintings, achieved through the joint initiative of TASCHEN and Wildenstein. The book's dazzling images are accompanied by insightful commentary from José López-Rey on Velázquez's interest in human life and his equal attention to all subjects, from an old woman frying eggs to a pope or king, as well as his commitment to color and light, which would influence the Impressionists over two centuries later.
