Title: Velazquez: The Painter of Painters
Movie ID: VT6239
Movie Number: 6239
Description: In the 17th century, those who worked with their hands were generally considered "unworthy" of nobility. Yet on November 28, 1659, Diego de Silva Velazquez was admitted to the Order of Santiago, whose emblem, a red cross, the painter wears in his self-portrait in Las Meninas. Legend has it that the cross was added to the canvas after Velazquez' death by none other than Philip IV himself. This film on Velazquez explores the special relationship between an artist and a king. This portrait of the artist looks to Velazquez' works to reveal his character: from the paintings of his youth, to those of the royal family and entourage, destined for the walls of the Spanish palace. Through his works and historical evidence, we begin to grasp the scope of Velazquez' achievements and gain a better understanding of this enigmatic master painter.
