This is the last Diego Velazquez art blog. Let us begin! This immitates Caravaggio musician painting. Its just a simple genre painting. Here we see some musicians practicing. One is singing and playing the guitar. The other is playing the violin. The last kid is offering wine to one of the musicians. Behind the kid, we see a little monkey. He is the star of their performance. Pretty neat performers. On the table, we have a still life of bread, some knifes and a glass of wine. This one simply shows Velazquez mastery of reflecting surfaces. That Velazquez always did quite the realistic glass effect. I think that is everything worth mentioning. 5 stars for Diego Velazquez.
This is another genre painting. Here an old woman is cooking eggs. Her grandson is helping her out. In this painting, we see several surfaces. They are each painted with a lot of realism. Really neat if you ask me. 5 stars for Diego Velazquez.
This is another genre painting. Some peasants are eating a humble breakfast. One of the kids is looking at the viewer and giving us a thumbs up. Uh, its seems that the thumbs up is more than 500 years old. Interesting! Then again, I think that was a Roman thing. Besides him, a kid is offering a toast of wine. Their old man is more focused on the dinner. This painting shows off Velazquez's still life abilities. Look at the lovely reflecting surfaces on the table. The knife creates the illusion that it is outside the painting. The faces of the trio are in frontal profile, side profile and 3/4 profile. In those early years, Velazquez was still looking for a job. He was painting these random genre paintings with the hopes of attracting a rich patron. His efforts paid off when he landed the cushy job at the Spanish palace. Regardless, this lovely painting deserves 5 stars raint.
I should have thrown this painting along with the mythological and the biblical paintings. However, I figured that since there was a big enough crown, I would host it here. The figures are quite realistic, except for the halos. The Baby Jesus is one cute kid. 5 stars for Diego Velazquez.
This painting is just like the breakfast. The young kid is offering wine to his father. He is being careful not spilling a single drop. In any case, this lovely painting deserves 5 stars rating.
This genre painting is about a water seller. It showcases surfaces, glasses and facial profiles. Nothing too far out there. 5 stars for this lovely painting.
Well, here is the last Diego Velazquez featured painting. There were a lot more war paintings. However, I do so hate equestrian paintings. I like my nobles off their high horses. Anyhow, the guys on the right are the Spanish victor. The guys from Brenda are on the left. Their general is bowing. The Spanish general is asking him to rise. He respects his military prowess. There are no hard feelings. Several generals on both sides are looking at the viewer. The horse in the foreground is there for perspective purposes. He gives more dept to the painting. On the background, we see the burning Breda. I suppose that is everything worth mentioning. 5 stars for this last painting. I will feature next this modern impressionism guy in the near future. I think I have another Fuseli blog also planned. Maybe, I will write another Disney movie blog. Goodbye for now.
