Las Meninas Artist Diego Velázquez Year 1656 Medium Oil on canvas Dimensions 318 cm × 276 cm (125. 2 in × 108. 7 in) Location Museo del Prado, Madrid Las Meninas [a. pronounced [laz meˈninas] Spanish for " The Ladies-in-waiting. is a 1656 painting in the Museo del Prado in Madrid, by Diego Velázquez, the leading artist of the Spanish Golden Age. Its complex and enigmatic composition raises questions about reality and illusion, and creates an uncertain relationship between the viewer and the figures depicted. Because of these complexities, Las Meninas has been one of the most widely analyzed works in Western painting. The painting shows a large room in the Royal Alcazar of Madrid during the reign of King Philip IV of Spain, and presents several figures, most identifiable from the Spanish court, captured, according to some commentators, in a particular moment as if in a snapshot.  Some look out of the canvas towards the viewer, while others interact among themselves. The young Infanta Margaret Theresa is surrounded by her entourage of maids of honour, chaperone, bodyguard, two dwarfs and a dog. Just behind them, Velázquez portrays himself working at a large canvas. Velázquez looks outwards, beyond the pictorial space to where a viewer of the painting would stand.  In the background there is a mirror that reflects the upper bodies of the king and queen. They appear to be placed outside the picture space in a position similar to that of the viewer, although some scholars have speculated that their image is a reflection from the painting Velázquez is shown working on. Las Meninas has long been recognised as one of the most important paintings in Western art history. The Baroque painter Luca Giordano said that it represents the "theology of painting" and in 1827 the president of the Royal Academy of Arts Sir Thomas Lawrence described the work in a letter to his successor David Wilkie as "the true philosophy of the art. 3] More recently, it has been described as "Velázquez's supreme achievement, a highly self-conscious, calculated demonstration of what painting could achieve, and perhaps the most searching comment ever made on the possibilities of the easel painting. 4] Background [ edit] Court of Philip IV [ edit] The Infanta Margaret Theresa (1651–73) in mourning dress for her father in 1666, by Juan del Mazo. The background figures include her young brother Charles II and the dwarf Maribarbola, also in Las Meninas. She left Spain for her marriage in Vienna the same year.  In 17th-century Spain, painters rarely enjoyed high social status. Painting was regarded as a craft, not an art such as poetry or music.  Nonetheless, Velázquez worked his way up through the ranks of the court of Philip IV, and in February 1651 was appointed palace chamberlain ( aposentador mayor del palacio. The post brought him status and material reward, but its duties made heavy demands on his time. During the remaining eight years of his life, he painted only a few works, mostly portraits of the royal family.  When he painted Las Meninas, he had been with the royal household for 33 years. Philip IV's first wife, Elizabeth of France, died in 1644; and their only son, Balthasar Charles, died two years later. Lacking an heir, Philip married Mariana of Austria in 1649, 8] and Margaret Theresa (1651–1673) was their first child, and their only one at the time of the painting. Subsequently, she had a short-lived brother Philip Prospero (1657–1661) and then Charles (1661–1700) arrived, who succeeded to the throne as Charles II at the age of three. Velázquez painted portraits of Mariana and her children, 7] and although Philip himself resisted being portrayed in his old age he did allow Velázquez to include him in Las Meninas. In the early 1650s he gave Velázquez the Pieza Principal ( main room" of the late Balthasar Charles's living quarters, by then serving as the palace museum, to use as his studio. It is here that Las Meninas is set. Philip had his own chair in the studio and would often sit and watch Velázquez at work. Although constrained by rigid etiquette, the art-loving king seems to have had a close relationship with the painter. After Velázquez's death, Philip wrote "I am crushed" in the margin of a memorandum on the choice of his successor.  During the 1640s and 1650s, Velázquez served as both court painter and curator of Philip IV's expanding collection of European art. He seems to have been given an unusual degree of freedom in the role. He supervised the decoration and interior design of the rooms holding the most valued paintings, adding mirrors, statues and tapestries. He was also responsible for the sourcing, attribution, hanging and inventory of many of the Spanish king's paintings. By the early 1650s, Velázquez was widely respected in Spain as a connoisseur. Much of the collection of the Prado today—including works by Titian, Raphael, and Rubens —were acquired and assembled under Velázquez's curatorship.  Detail showing Philip IV's daughter, the Infanta Margaret Theresa. Most of her left cheek was repainted after being damaged in the fire of 1734. Provenance and condition [ edit] The painting was referred to in the earliest inventories as La Familia ( The Family. 11] A detailed description of Las Meninas, which provides the identification of several of the figures, was published by Antonio Palomino ( the Giorgio Vasari of the Spanish Golden Age" in 1724.  12] Examination under infrared light reveals minor pentimenti, that is, there are traces of earlier working that the artist himself later altered. For example, at first Velázquez's own head inclined to his right rather than his left.  The painting has been cut down on both the left and right sides.  It was damaged in the fire that destroyed the Alcázar in 1734, and was restored by court painter Juan García de Miranda (1677–1749. The left cheek of the Infanta was almost completely repainted to compensate for a substantial loss of pigment.  After its rescue from the fire, the painting was inventoried as part of the royal collection in 1747–48, and the Infanta was misidentified as Maria Theresa, Margaret Theresa's older half-sister, an error that was repeated when the painting was inventoried at the new Madrid Royal Palace in 1772.  A 1794 inventory reverted to a version of the earlier title, The Family of Philip IV, which was repeated in the records of 1814. The painting entered the collection of the Museo del Prado on its foundation in 1819.  In 1843, the Prado catalogue listed the work for the first time as Las Meninas.  In recent years, the picture has suffered a loss of texture and hue. Due to exposure to pollution and crowds of visitors, the once-vivid contrasts between blue and white pigments in the costumes of the meninas have faded.  It was last cleaned in 1984 under the supervision of the American conservator John Brealey, to remove a "yellow veil" of dust that had gathered since the previous restoration in the 19th century. The cleaning provoked, according to the art historian Federico Zeri, furious protests, not because the picture had been damaged in any way, but because it looked different. 17] 18] However, in the opinion of López-Rey, the "restoration was impeccable. 16] Due to its size, importance, and value, the painting is not lent out for exhibition. [b] Painting materials [ edit] A thorough technical investigation including a pigment analysis of Las Meninas was conducted around 1981 in Museo Prado.  The analysis revealed the usual pigments of the baroque period frequently used by Velázquez in his other paintings. The main pigments used for this painting were lead white, azurite (for the skirt of the kneeling menina) vermilion and red lake, ochres and carbon blacks.  Description [ edit] Subject matter [ edit] Key to the people represented: see text Las Meninas is set in Velázquez's studio in Philip IV's Alcázar palace in Madrid.  The high-ceilinged room is presented, in the words of Silvio Gaggi, as "a simple box that could be divided into a perspective grid with a single vanishing point. 24] In the centre of the foreground stands the Infanta Margaret Theresa (1. The five-year-old infanta, who later married Holy Roman Emperor Leopold I, was at this point Philip and Mariana's only surviving child. [c] She is attended by two ladies-in-waiting, or meninas: doña Isabel de Velasco (2) who is poised to curtsy to the princess, and doña María Agustina Sarmiento de Sotomayor (3) who kneels before Margaret Theresa, offering her a drink from a red cup, or búcaro, that she holds on a golden tray.  To the right of the Infanta are two dwarfs: the achondroplastic German, Mari Barbola (4) 25. Maria Barbola) and the Italian, Nicolas Pertusato (5) who playfully tries to rouse a sleepy mastiff with his foot. The dog is thought to be descended from two mastiffs from Lyme Hall in Cheshire, given to Phillip III in 1604 by James I of England.  Behind them stands doña Marcela de Ulloa (6) the princess's chaperone, dressed in mourning and talking to an unidentified bodyguard (or guardadamas) 7. 25] To the rear and at right stands Don José Nieto Velázquez (8)—the queen's chamberlain during the 1650s, and head of the royal tapestry works—who may have been a relative of the artist. Nieto is shown pausing, with his right knee bent and his feet on different steps. As the art critic Harriet Stone observes, it is uncertain whether he is "coming or going. 27] He is rendered in silhouette and appears to hold open a curtain on a short flight of stairs, with an unclear wall or space behind. Both this backlight and the open doorway reveal space behind: in the words of the art historian Analisa Leppanen, they lure "our eyes inescapably into the depths. 28] The royal couple's reflection pushes in the opposite direction, forward into the picture space. The vanishing point of the perspective is in the doorway, as can be shown by extending the line of the meeting of wall and ceiling on the right. Nieto is seen only by the king and queen, who share the viewer's point of view, and not by the figures in the foreground. In the footnotes of Joel Snyder's article, the author recognizes that Nieto is the queen's attendant and was required to be at hand to open and close doors for her. Snyder suggests that Nieto appears in the doorway so that the king and queen might depart. In the context of the painting, Snyder argues that the scene is the end of the royal couple's sitting for Velázquez and they are preparing to exit, explaining that is "why the menina to the right of the Infanta begins to curtsy. 29] Velázquez himself (9) is pictured to the left of the scene, looking outward past a large canvas supported by an easel.  On his chest is the red cross of the Order of Santiago, which he did not receive until 1659, three years after the painting was completed. According to Palomino, Philip ordered this to be added after Velázquez's death, and some say that his Majesty himself painted it. 31] From the painter's belt hang the symbolic keys of his court offices.  A mirror on the back wall reflects the upper bodies and heads of two figures identified from other paintings, and by Palomino, as King Philip IV (10) and Queen Mariana (11. The most common assumption is that the reflection shows the couple in the pose they are holding for Velázquez as he paints them, while their daughter watches; and that the painting therefore shows their view of the scene. Of the nine figures depicted, five are looking directly out at the royal couple or the viewer. Their glances, along with the king and queen's reflection, affirm the royal couple's presence outside the painted space.  Alternatively, art historians H. W. Janson and Joel Snyder suggest that the image of the king and queen is a reflection from Velázquez's canvas, the front of which is obscured from the viewer.  34] Other writers say the canvas Velázquez is painting is unusually large for a portrait by Velázquez, and is about the same size as Las Meninas. Las Meninas contains the only known double portrait of the royal couple painted by Velázquez.  The point of view of the picture is approximately that of the royal couple, though this has been widely debated. Many critics suppose that the scene is viewed by the king and queen as they pose for a double portrait, while the Infanta and her companions are present only to make the process more enjoyable.  Ernst Gombrich suggested that the picture might have been the sitters' idea: Perhaps the princess was brought into the royal presence to relieve the boredom of the sitting and the King or the Queen remarked to Velazquez that here was a worthy subject for his brush. The words spoken by the sovereign are always treated as a command and so we may owe this masterpiece to a passing wish which only Velazquez was able to turn into reality. 37] No single theory, however, has found universal agreement.  Leo Steinberg suggests that the King and Queen are to the left of the viewer and the reflection in the mirror is that of the canvas, a portrait of the king and queen.  Others speculate that Velázquez represents himself painting the Infanta Margaret Theresa. The back wall of the room, which is in shadow, is hung with rows of paintings, including one of a series of scenes from Ovid 's Metamorphoses by Peter Paul Rubens, and copies, by Velázquez's son-in-law and principal assistant Juan del Mazo, of works by Jacob Jordaens.  The paintings are shown in the exact positions recorded in an inventory taken around this time.  The wall to the right is hung with a grid of eight smaller paintings, visible mainly as frames owing to their angle from the viewer.  They can be identified from the inventory as more Mazo copies of paintings from the Rubens Ovid series, though only two of the subjects can be seen.  The paintings on the back wall are recognized as representing Minerva Punishing Arachne and Apollo's Victory Over Marsyas. Both stories involve Minerva, the Goddess of Wisdom and patron of the arts. These two legends are both stories of mortals challenging gods and the dreadful consequences. One scholar points out that the legend dealing with two women, Minerva and Arachne, is on the same side of the mirror as the queen's reflection while the male legend is on the side of the king.  Composition [ edit] The painted surface is divided into quarters horizontally and sevenths vertically; this grid is used to organise the elaborate grouping of characters, and was a common device at the time.  Velázquez presents nine figures—eleven if the king and queen's reflected images are included—yet they occupy only the lower half of the canvas.  According to López-Rey, the painting has three focal points: the Infanta Margaret Theresa, the self-portrait and the half-length reflected images of King Philip IV and Queen Mariana. In 1960, the art historian Kenneth Clark made the point that the success of the composition is a result first and foremost of the accurate handling of light and shade: Each focal point involves us in a new set of relations; and to paint a complex group like the Meninas, the painter must carry in his head a single consistent scale of relations which he can apply throughout. He may use all kinds of devices to help him do this—perspective is one of them—but ultimately the truth about a complete visual impression depends on one thing, truth of tone. Drawing may be summary, colours drab, but if the relations of tone are true, the picture will hold.  However, the focal point of the painting is widely debated. Leo Steinberg argues that the orthogonals in the work are intentionally disguised so that the picture's focal center shifts. Similar to Lopez-Rey, he describes three foci. The man in the doorway, however, is the vanishing point. More specifically, the crook of his arm is where the orthogonals of the windows and lights of the ceiling meet.  Depth and dimension are rendered by the use of linear perspective, by the overlapping of the layers of shapes, and in particular, as stated by Clark, through the use of tone. This compositional element operates within the picture in a number of ways. First, there is the appearance of natural light within the painted room and beyond it. The pictorial space in the midground and foreground is lit from two sources: by thin shafts of light from the open door, and by broad streams coming through the window to the right.  The 20th-century French philosopher and cultural critic Michel Foucault observed that the light from the window illuminates both the studio foreground and the unrepresented area in front of it, in which the king, the queen, and the viewer are presumed to be situated.  For José Ortega y Gasset, light divides the scene into three distinct parts, with foreground and background planes strongly illuminated, between which a darkened intermediate space includes silhouetted figures.  Velázquez uses this light not only to add volume and definition to each form but also to define the focal points of the painting. As the light streams in from the right it brightly glints on the braid and golden hair of the female dwarf, who is nearest the light source. But because her face is turned from the light, and in shadow, its tonality does not make it a point of particular interest. Similarly, the light glances obliquely on the cheek of the lady-in-waiting near her, but not on her facial features. Much of her lightly coloured dress is dimmed by shadow. The Infanta, however, stands in full illumination, and with her face turned towards the light source, even though her gaze is not. Her face is framed by the pale gossamer of her hair, setting her apart from everything else in the picture. The light models the volumetric geometry of her form, defining the conic nature of a small torso bound rigidly into a corset and stiffened bodice, and the panniered skirt extending around her like an oval candy-box, casting its own deep shadow which, by its sharp contrast with the bright brocade, both emphasises and locates the small figure as the main point of attention. Velázquez further emphasises the Infanta by his positioning and lighting of her maids of honour, whom he sets opposing one another: to left and right, before and behind the Infanta. The maid to the left faces the light, her brightly lit profile and sleeve creating a diagonal. Her opposite number creates a broader but less defined reflection of her attention, making a diagonal space between them, in which their charge stands protected.  A further internal diagonal passes through the space occupied by the Infanta. There is a similar connection between the female dwarf and the figure of Velázquez himself, both of whom look towards the viewer from similar angles, creating a visual tension. The face of Velázquez is dimly lit by light that is reflected, rather than direct. For this reason his features, though not as sharply defined, are more visible than those of the dwarf who is much nearer the light source. This appearance of a total face, full-on to the viewer, draws the attention, and its importance is marked, tonally, by the contrasting frame of dark hair, the light on the hand and brush, and the skilfully placed triangle of light on the artist's sleeve, pointing directly to the face. From the figure of the artist, the viewer's eye leaps again diagonally into the pictorial space. Another man stands, echoing and opposing the form of the artist, outside rather than inside, made clearly defined and yet barely identifiable by the light and shade. The positioning of such an area of strong tonal contrast right at the rear of the pictorial space is a daring compositional tactic. The shapes of bright light are similar to the irregular light shapes of the foreground Maid of Honour, but the sharply defined door-frame repeats the border of the mirror. The mirror is a perfectly defined unbroken pale rectangle within a broad black rectangle. A clear geometric shape, like a lit face, draws the attention of the viewer more than a broken geometric shape such as the door, or a shadowed or oblique face such as that of the dwarf in the foreground or that of the man in the background. The viewer cannot distinguish the features of the king and queen, but in the opalescent sheen of the mirror's surface, the glowing ovals are plainly turned directly to the viewer. Jonathan Miller pointed out that apart from "adding suggestive gleams at the bevelled edges, the most important way the mirror betrays its identity is by disclosing imagery whose brightness is so inconsistent with the dimness of the surrounding wall that it can only have been borrowed, by reflection, from the strongly illuminated figures of the King and Queen. 47] As the maids of honour are reflected in each other, so too do the king and queen have their doubles within the painting, in the dimly lit forms of the chaperone and guard, the two who serve and care for their daughter. The positioning of these figures sets up a pattern, one man, a couple, one man, a couple, and while the outer figures are nearer the viewer than the others, they all occupy the same horizontal band on the picture's surface. Adding to the inner complexities of the picture and creating further visual interactions is the male dwarf in the foreground, whose raised hand echoes the gesture of the figure in the background, while his playful demeanour, and distraction from the central action, are in complete contrast with it. The informality of his pose, his shadowed profile, and his dark hair all serve to make him a mirror image to the kneeling attendant of the Infanta. However, the painter has set him forward of the light streaming through the window, and so minimised the contrast of tone on this foreground figure. Despite certain spatial ambiguities this is the painter's most thoroughly rendered architectural space, and the only one in which a ceiling is shown. According to López-Rey, in no other composition did Velázquez so dramatically lead the eye to areas beyond the viewer's sight: both the canvas he is seen painting, and the space beyond the frame where the king and queen stand can only be imagined.  The bareness of the dark ceiling, the back of Velázquez's canvas, and the strict geometry of framed paintings contrast with the animated, brilliantly lit and sumptuously painted foreground entourage.  Stone writes: We cannot take in all the figures of the painting in one glance. Not only do the life-size proportions of the painting preclude such an appreciation, but also the fact that the heads of the figures are turned in different directions means that our gaze is deflected. The painting communicates through images which, in order to be understood, must thus be considered in sequence, one after the other, in the context of a history that is still unfolding. It is a history that is still unframed, even in this painting composed of frames within frames.  According to Kahr, the composition could have been influenced by the traditional Dutch Gallery Pictures such as those by Frans Francken the Younger, Willem van Haecht, or David Teniers the Younger. Teniers' work was owned by Philip IV and would have been known by Velázquez. Like Las Meninas, they often depict formal visits by important collectors or rulers, a common occurrence, and "show a room with a series of windows dominating one side wall and paintings hung between the windows as well as on the other walls. Gallery Portraits were also used to glorify the artist as well as royalty or members of the higher classes, as may have been Velázquez's intention with this work.  Mirror and reflection [ edit] Detail of the mirror in van Eyck's Arnolfini Portrait. Van Eyck's painting shows the pictorial space from "behind" and two further figures in front of the picture space, like those in the reflection in the mirror in Las Meninas. The spatial structure and positioning of the mirror's reflection are such that Philip IV and Mariana appear to be standing on the viewer's side of the pictorial space, facing the Infanta and her entourage. According to Janson, not only is the gathering of figures in the foreground for Philip and Mariana's benefit, but the painter's attention is concentrated on the couple, as he appears to be working on their portrait.  Although they can only be seen in the mirror reflection, their distant image occupies a central position in the canvas, in terms of social hierarchy as well as composition. As spectators, our position in relation to the painting is uncertain. It has been debated whether the ruling couple are standing beside the viewer or have replaced the viewer, who sees the scene through their eyes. Lending weight to the latter idea are the gazes of three of the figures—Velázquez, the Infanta, and Maribarbola—who appear to be looking directly at the viewer.  The mirror on the back wall indicates what is not there: the king and queen, and in the words of Harriet Stone, the generations of spectators who assume the couple's place before the painting. 27] Writing in 1980, the critics Snyder and Cohn observed: Velázquez wanted the mirror to depend upon the useable (sic) painted canvas for its image. Why should he want that? The luminous image in the mirror appears to reflect the king and queen themselves, but it does more than just this: the mirror outdoes nature. The mirror image is only a reflection. A reflection of what? Of the real thing—of the art of Velázquez. In the presence of his divinely ordained monarchs. Velázquez exults in his artistry and counsels Philip and Maria not to look for the revelation of their image in the natural reflection of a looking glass but rather in the penetrating vision of their master painter. In the presence of Velázquez, a mirror image is a poor imitation of the real.  In Las Meninas, the king and queen are supposedly "outside" the painting, yet their reflection in the back wall mirror also places them "inside" the pictorial space.  Snyder proposes it is "a mirror of majesty" or an allusion to the mirror for princes. While it is a literal reflection of the king and queen, Snyder writes "it is the image of exemplary monarchs, a reflection of ideal character" 55] Later he focuses his attention on the princess, writing that Velázquez's portrait is "the painted equivalent of a manual for the education of the princess—a mirror of the princess. 56] The painting is likely to have been influenced by Jan van Eyck 's Arnolfini Portrait, of 1434. At the time, van Eyck's painting hung in Philip's palace, and would have been familiar to Velázquez.  57] The Arnolfini Portrait also has a mirror positioned at the back of the pictorial space, reflecting two figures who would have the same angle of vision as does the viewer of Velázquez's painting; they are too small to identify, but it has been speculated that one may be intended as the artist himself, though he is not shown in the act of painting. According to Lucien Dällenbach: The mirror [in Las Meninas] faces the observer as in Van Eyck's painting. But here the procedure is more realistic to the degree that the "rearview" mirror in which the royal couple appears is no longer convex but flat. Whereas the reflection in the Flemish painting recomposed objects and characters within a space that is condensed and deformed by the curve of the mirror, that of Velázquez refuses to play with the laws of perspective: it projects onto the canvas the perfect double of the king and queen positioned in front of the painting. Moreover, in showing the figures whom the painter observes, and also, through the mediation of the mirror, the figures who are observing him, the painter achieves a reciprocity of gazes that makes the interior oscillate with the exterior and which causes the image to "emerge from its frame" at the same time that it invites the visitors to enter the painting.  Jonathan Miller asks: What are we to make of the blurred features of the royal couple? It is unlikely that it has anything to do with the optical imperfection of the mirror, which would, in reality, have displayed a focused image of the King and Queen. He notes that "in addition to the represented mirror, he teasingly implies an unrepresented one, without which it is difficult to imagine how he could have shown himself painting the picture we now see. 59] Interpretation [ edit] The elusiveness of Las Meninas, according to Dawson Carr, suggests that art, and life, are an illusion. 60] The relationship between illusion and reality were central concerns in Spanish culture during the 17th century, figuring largely in Don Quixote, the best-known work of Spanish Baroque literature. In this respect, Calderón de la Barca's play Life is a Dream is commonly seen as the literary equivalent of Velázquez's painting: What is a life? A frenzy. What is life? A shadow, an illusion, and a sham. The greatest good is small; all life, it seems Is just a dream, and even dreams are dreams.  Detail showing the red cross of the Order of Santiago painted on the breast of Velázquez. Presumably this detail was added at a later date, as the painter was admitted to the order by the king's decree on November 28, 1659.  Jon Manchip White notes that the painting can be seen as a résumé of the whole of Velázquez's life and career, as well as a summary of his art to that point. He placed his only confirmed self-portrait in a room in the royal palace surrounded by an assembly of royalty, courtiers, and fine objects that represent his life at court.  The art historian Svetlana Alpers suggests that, by portraying the artist at work in the company of royalty and nobility, Velázquez was claiming high status for both the artist and his art, 62] and in particular to propose that painting is a liberal rather than a mechanical art. This distinction was a point of controversy at the time. It would have been significant to Velázquez, since the rules of the Order of Santiago excluded those whose occupations were mechanical.  Kahr asserts that this was the best way for Velázquez to show that he was "neither a craftsman or a tradesman, but an official of the court. Furthermore, this was a way to prove himself worthy of acceptance by the royal family.  Michel Foucault devoted the opening chapter of The Order of Things (1966) to an analysis of Las Meninas. Foucault describes the painting in meticulous detail, but in a language that is "neither prescribed by, nor filtered through the various texts of art-historical investigation. 64] Foucault viewed the painting without regard to the subject matter, nor to the artist's biography, technical ability, sources and influences, social context, or relationship with his patrons. Instead he analyzes its conscious artifice, highlighting the complex network of visual relationships between painter, subject-model, and viewer: We are looking at a picture in which the painter is in turn looking out at us. A mere confrontation, eyes catching one another's glance, direct looks superimposing themselves upon one another as they cross. And yet this slender line of reciprocal visibility embraces a whole complex network of uncertainties, exchanges, and feints. The painter is turning his eyes towards us only in so far as we happen to occupy the same position as his subject.  65] For Foucault, Las Meninas illustrates the first signs of a new episteme, or way of thinking. It represents a midpoint between what he sees as the two "great discontinuities" in European thought, the classical and the modern: Perhaps there exists, in this painting by Velázquez, the representation as it were of Classical representation, and the definition of the space it opens up to us. representation, freed finally from the relation that was impeding it, can offer itself as representation in its pure form. 64] 66] Now he (the painter) can be seen, caught in a moment of stillness, at the neutral centre of his oscillation. His dark torso and bright face are half-way between the visible and the invisible: emerging from the canvas beyond our view, he moves into our gaze; but when, in a moment, he makes a step to the right, removing himself from our gaze, he will be standing exactly in front of the canvas he is painting; he will enter that region where his painting, neglected for an instant, will, for him, become visible once more, free of shadow and free of reticence. As though the painter could not at the same time be seen on the picture where he is represented and also see that upon which he is representing something. 67] In the conclusion of The Order of Things Foucault explained why he undertook such a forensic analysis of Las Meninas: let us, if we may, look for the previously existing law of that interplay [i. e., the law of representation] in the painting of Las Meninas… In Classical thought, the personage for whom the representation exists, and who represents himself within it, recognizing himself therein as an image or reflection, he who ties together all the interlacing threads of the 'representation in the form of a picture or table'—he is never to be found in that table himself. Before the end of the eighteenth century, man did not exist—any more than the potency of life, the fecundity of labour, or the historical density of language. He is a quite recent creature, which the demiurge of knowledge fabricated with its own hands less than two hundred years ago: but he has grown old so quickly that it has been only too easy to imagine that he had been waiting for thousands of years in the darkness for that moment of illumination in which he would finally be known.  Foucault's analysis of Las Meninas, although on one level a contribution to art history, is more about epistemology, specifically the 'cognitive status of the modern human sciences. 69] Las Meninas as culmination of themes in Velázquez [ edit] Many aspects of Las Meninas relate to earlier works by Velázquez in which he plays with conventions of representation. In the Rokeby Venus —his only surviving nude—the face of the subject is visible, blurred beyond any realism, in a mirror. The angle of the mirror is such that although "often described as looking at herself, she] is more disconcertingly looking at us. 70] In the early Christ in the House of Martha and Mary of 1618, 71] Christ and his companions are seen only through a serving hatch to a room behind, according to the National Gallery (London) who are clear that this is the intention, although before restoration many art historians regarded this scene as either a painting hanging on the wall in the main scene, or a reflection in a mirror, and the debate has continued.  73] The dress worn in the two scenes also differs: the main scene is in contemporary dress, while the scene with Christ uses conventional iconographic biblical dress. This is also a feature of Los Borrachos of 1629, where contemporary peasants consort with the god Bacchus and his companions, who have the conventional undress of mythology. In this, as in some of his early bodegones, the figures look directly at the viewer as if seeking a reaction. In Las Hilanderas, probably painted the year after Las Meninas, two different scenes from Ovid are shown: one in contemporary dress in the foreground, and the other partly in antique dress, played before a tapestry on the back wall of a room behind the first. According to the critic Sira Dambe, aspects of representation and power are addressed in this painting in ways closely connected with their treatment in Las Meninas. 6] In a series of portraits of the late 1630s and 1640s—all now in the Prado—Velázquez painted clowns and other members of the royal household posing as gods, heroes, and philosophers; the intention is certainly partly comic, at least for those in the know, but in a highly ambiguous way.  Velázquez's portraits of the royal family themselves had until then been straightforward, if often unflatteringly direct and highly complex in expression. On the other hand, his royal portraits, designed to be seen across vast palace rooms, feature more strongly than his other works the bravura handling for which he is famous: Velázquez's handling of paint is exceptionally free, and as one approaches Las Meninas there is a point at which the figures suddenly dissolve into smears and blobs of paint. The long-handled brushes he used enabled him to stand back and judge the total effect. 32] Influence [ edit] In 1692, the Neapolitan painter Luca Giordano became one of the few allowed to view paintings held in Philip IV's private apartments, and was greatly impressed by Las Meninas. Giordano described the work as the "theology of painting. 42] and was inspired to paint A Homage to Velázquez ( National Gallery, London. 76] By the early 18th century his oeuvre was gaining international recognition, and later in the century British collectors ventured to Spain in search of acquisitions. Since the popularity of Italian art was then at its height among British connoisseurs, they concentrated on paintings that showed obvious Italian influence, largely ignoring others such as Las Meninas.  An almost immediate influence can be seen in the two portraits by Mazo of subjects depicted in Las Meninas, which in some ways reverse the motif of that painting. Ten years later, in 1666, Mazo painted Infanta Margaret Theresa, who was then 15 and just about to leave Madrid to marry the Holy Roman Emperor. In the background are figures in two further receding doorways, one of which was the new King Charles (Margaret Theresa's brother) and another the dwarf Maribarbola. A Mazo portrait of the widowed Queen Mariana again shows, through a doorway in the Alcázar, the young king with dwarfs, possibly including Maribarbola, and attendants who offer him a drink.  Mazo's painting of The Family of the Artist also shows a composition similar to that of Las Meninas. Francisco Goya etched a print of Las Meninas in 1778, 79] and later used Velázquez's painting as the model for his Charles IV of Spain and His Family. As in Las Meninas, the royal family in Goya's work is apparently visiting the artist's studio. In both paintings the artist is shown working on a canvas, of which only the rear is visible. Goya, however, replaces the atmospheric and warm perspective of Las Meninas with what Pierre Gassier calls a sense of "imminent suffocation. Goya's royal family is presented on a "stage facing the public, while in the shadow of the wings the painter, with a grim smile, points and says: Look at them and judge for yourself! " 75] The 19th-century British art collector William John Bankes travelled to Spain during the Peninsular War (1808–1814) and acquired a copy of Las Meninas painted by Mazo, 80] which he believed to be an original preparatory oil sketch by Velázquez—although Velázquez did not usually paint studies. Bankes described his purchase as "the glory of my collection" noting that he had been "a long while in treaty for it and was obliged to pay a high price. 81] The copy was admired throughout the 19th century in Britain, and is now in Kingston Lacy. Recently there have been suggestions that it might be by Velázquez after all (see below. A new appreciation for Velázquez's less Italianate paintings developed after 1819, when Ferdinand VII opened the royal collection to the public.  In 1879 John Singer Sargent painted a small-scale copy of Las Meninas, and in 1882 painted a homage to the painting in his The Daughters of Edward Darley Boit, while the Irish artist Sir John Lavery chose Velázquez's masterpiece as the basis for his portrait The Royal Family at Buckingham Palace, 1913. George V visited Lavery's studio during the execution of the painting, and, perhaps remembering the legend that Philip IV had daubed the cross of the Knights of Santiago on the figure of Velázquez, asked Lavery if he could contribute to the portrait with his own hand. According to Lavery, Thinking that royal blue might be an appropriate colour, I mixed it on the palette, and taking a brush he [George V] applied it to the Garter ribbon. 80] Between August and December 1957, Pablo Picasso painted a series of 58 interpretations of Las Meninas, and figures from it, which currently fill the Las Meninas room of the Museu Picasso in Barcelona, Spain. Picasso did not vary the characters within the series, but largely retained the naturalness of the scene; according to the museum, his works constitute an "exhaustive study of form, rhythm, colour and movement. 82] A print of 1973 by Richard Hamilton called Picasso's Meninas draws on both Velázquez and Picasso.  Photographer Joel-Peter Witkin was commissioned by the Spanish Ministry of Culture to create a work titled Las Meninas, New Mexico (1987) which references Velázquez's painting as well as other works by Spanish artists.  In 2004, the video artist Eve Sussman filmed 89 Seconds at Alcázar, a high-definition video tableau inspired by Las Meninas. The work is a recreation of the moments leading up to and directly following the approximately 89 seconds when the royal family and their courtiers would have come together in the exact configuration of Velázquez's painting. Sussman had assembled a team of 35, including an architect, a set designer, a choreographer, a costume designer, actors, actresses, and a film crew.  A 2008 exhibition at the Museu Picasso called "Forgetting Velázquez: Las Meninas " included art responding to Velázquez's painting by Fermín Aguayo, Avigdor Arikha, Claudio Bravo, Juan Carreño de Miranda, Michael Craig-Martin, Salvador Dalí, Juan Downey, Goya, Hamilton, Mazo, Vik Muniz, Jorge Oteiza, Picasso, Antonio Saura, Franz von Stuck, Sussman, Manolo Valdés, and Witkin, among others.  87] In 2009 the Museo del Prado launched a project facilitating access to Las Meninas in mega high resolution through the Internet.  In 2010 and 2011 Felix de la Concha created Las Meninas Under An Artificial Light. It is a meticulous copy made in Iowa City, painted in oil on 140 panels, which together reconstruct the actual size of the painting of 318 x 276 cm. To this, 30 cm on its left side were added to reflect the loss to the original from the fire at the Alcazar in 1734. This provides a new reading to the composition. His work also highlights, with its fragmentation, the artificiality of reproduction as a way of seeing works of art today. Las Meninas under an artificial light has been on public display since 2018 at the NH Hotel in Zamora, Spain.  Kingston Lacy version [ edit] Bankes' smaller version of the painting is now in the country house of Kingston Lacy in Dorset.  Several experts, including the former Curator of the Department of Renaissance and Baroque Painting in the Museo del Prado and current Director of the Moll Institute of Studies of Flemish Paintings, in Madrid, Professor Matías Díaz Padrón, suggest that this "could be a model" painted by Velázquez before the completed work which hangs in the Museo del Prado, perhaps to be approved by the king.  Conflicting with this is the fact that the Kingston Lacy version represents the final state of Las Meninas, not the earlier state of the painting revealed by radiographs, suggesting that it was painted after the completed work, not before it.  The usual attribution since the 19th century has been that the Kingston Lacy painting is a copy by Juan Bautista Martínez del Mazo (c. 1612-1667) son-in-law and close follower of Velázquez.  The version is missing some of the final work's details and nuances such as the royal couple's reflection in the mirror. Its composition is almost identical to the original. Although its colours are lighter, the light is less strong. Pencil lines outlining the Infanta's face, eyes, and hair are also visible.  The Kingston Lacy painting was previously owned by Gaspar Melchor de Jovellanos and then by Ceán Bermúdez, who were both friends of Goya whose portraits he painted. Bermúdez's writings on the painting were published posthumously in 1885.  Notes [ edit] The name is sometimes given in print as Las Meniñas, but there is no word " meniña " in Spanish. The word means "girl from a noble family brought up to serve at court. Oxford Concise Spanish Dictionary) and comes from menina, the Portuguese word for "girl. This misspelling may be due to confusion with niña, the Spanish word for "girl. ^ The work was evacuated to Geneva by the Republican Government, together with much of the Prado's collection, during the last months of the Spanish Civil War, where it hung in an exhibition of Spanish paintings in 1939, next to Pablo Picasso 's Guernica.  20] Maria Theresa was by then queen of France as wife of Louis XIV of France. Philip Prospero, Prince of Asturias, was born the following year, but died at four, shortly before his brother Charles II was born. One daughter from this marriage, and five from Philip's first marriage, had died in infancy. References [ edit] In 1855, William Stirling wrote in Velázquez and his works: Velázquez seems to have anticipated the discovery of Daguerre and, taking a real room and real people grouped together by chance, to have fixed them, as it were, by magic, for all time, on canvas.

One of the best albums of the year awaits you” Breaking the Music スペインはMadridの4ピースによる2ndアルバム.躍動する変拍子のキレ味に一挙炸裂し世界を塗り潰す轟音パートが絡むサウンドが ASIWYFAも思わせるがこちらはよりメタリカルなエッジ＆流れるようなスピード感が前面に突出する Winterlight 4/5 ガチャガチャとテクニカルに押していくバンドが多いマスロック界においてこの聴きやすさは貴重かもしれない.思考する際に良いお供になってくれそうなバンド. TheBeta “8 impresionantes cortes de sonidos inquietos, progresivos, futuristas y eclécticos. Jardín de la Croix confirman con este ambicioso trabajo ser una de las bandas que más calidad atesoran en este país” Thrashology “Con Ocean Cosmonauts han pasado de ser una gran promesa a convertirse en todo un hecho. Jardín de la Croix mezclan velocidad con buen gusto, habilidad con frescura y técnica con grandes composiciones y progresiones instrumentales en todos sus temas de entre los que sobresalen canciones como Vostok, Math of Vortex o Caronte” Rock Core 8. 4/10 “Intenso, experimental, innovador y excesivo. Un disco de cuidada composición, capaz de alcanzar nuevas dimensiones y sensaciones en cada escucha, y que se desvela como imprescindible para cualquier amante de los sonidos math/ progresivos ” Suicide by Star 9. 8/10 “Después de un fascinante disco de debut (Pomeroy, 2008) este cuarteto de rock instrumental no solo confirma esas buenas vibraciones, sino que consigue añadir aún más quilates a su música “ La Voz Telúrica “El segundo larga duración de los madrileños Jardín de la Croix se asemeja a todo lo bueno de su directo: es cálido, sutil, bello y absorbente. Logran aunar técnica y sentimientos en un matrimonio perfecto que ojalá dure muchísimo tiempo. Estupendo. ” Musicopathyst “Jardín de la Croix regresa por todo lo alto con este nuevo disco, ampliando así las dimensiones estéticas y los niveles de garra de su sofisticada energía rockera: “Ocean Cosmonauts” refleja una convincente muestra de nervio y músculo que se hace destacar volcánicamente en medio de la vanguardia rockera española” Portal Esquizofrenia (Cesar Inca) 8/10 “Jardín de la Croix haben den Frickelfreunden unter uns erneut ein wunderbares Album auf den Leib geschneidert, ein Album zudem, das angehörs seines metallischen Soundgewands auch die Metallurgen unter uns faszinieren dürfte. Uneingeschränkte Empfehlung! ” ProgReviews “Jardín De La Croix hoy es más banda, más música, si cabe. A esta altura uno considera lógico el pensar que hayan hecho un pacto con el diablo. Todos los temas del disco son obras maestras. Me saco el sombrero y aplaudo hasta que me sangren las manos… Es uno de los mejores discos que escuché en mi vida, totalmente fuera de serie” No salimos mas! “This album falls smack dab in the middle of the instrumental math rock genre, but with some post-rock leanings for good measure. Hailing from Madrid, this Spanish band will be for fans of other instrumental artists, such as Buckethead, Toundra, Caspian, or This Will Destroy You. Each song is relatively well composed and has an ebb and flow to it that often isnt found in many wanktastic bands” Decoy music Generell wird hier immer noch ein technisch gekonnter, leichtfüßiger Mathrock vorgetragen, wie man ihn vom Erstling kennt. Jedoch ist der Sound deutlich postrockiger geworden, es wird viel mehr wiederholt und in die Länge gezogen. Auch gibt es mehr postrock-typisches Riffing A beginners guide to progresive rock “Técnico e instrumental, melódico y experimental con tonos limpios, una increíble batería y gran energía rockera que mezcla prog rock setentero con tintes math rock” OrfeoProg “Wonderful work of this quartet of musicians from Madrid. Second album of a high quality instrumental progressive/math rock. Very good songs, well executed and technically outstanding compositions. One of the last surprises for this year” Udols “Probablemente uno de los mejores grupos españoles en su estilo. Recordando a una mezcla entre 12Twelve, Don Caballero, Secret Chiefs 3 y las partes instrumentales de Dream Theater, estos chicos logran unos temas con potencia, pegada, maestría y buen gusto que harán las delicias de mucha gente” Monasterio de cultura “Amb el nou disc, el grup ha passat a ser un dels principals grups de Progressiu del país. No us ho perdeu” Sin Patria ni Bandera 8/10 “Ocean Cosmonauts es, en definitiva, un segundo trabajo más maduro que no concede tregua al oído, y en el que se aprecia en todo su esplendor el potencial y la realidad que son ya el combo instrumental madrileño. ” La Fonoteca 4. 5/5 “Seguramente os quedéis igual de sorprendidos que nosotros al escuchar este trabajo y ver el esfuerzo creativo y la calidad de los músicos” La Cara Ce “un señor disco que ha de ser escuchado muchas veces antes de poder interiorizar cada uno de sus recovecos” The Haunt of Roulette dares ‘The opening track, Polyhedron, is one of the most stunning songs of the year. Featuring nearly 9 minutes of swirling guitar notes and riffs, complex drumming, and a constantly changing sound, your ears will be tired just trying to keep up with all the madness going on around you Sputnik reviews 4/5 Nel complesso un disco molto omogeneo e con una propria personalità: come avessero messo un proprio marchio. A distanza di qualche tempo dal primo ascolto che feci, sono ancora qui ad ascoltarlo con molto piacere. Quindi non posso che consigliarne lascolto e appoggiarli nel loro lavoro.

Esperemos que en breve podamos leer que hay una continuación suya RetroMúsica ‘Puedo decir sin miedo a equivocarme que Jardín de la Croix es una de las mejores bandas nacionales sin sello discográfico Feiticeira 8. 3/10 ‘Sin duda nos encontramos ante un álbum de obligada escucha para los amantes del género, pero también para aquellos oídos inquietos que no estén cerrados ante nuevas propuestas sonoras. Y es que este Pomeroy (2008) no solo destaca por su calidad y su nivel de ejecución, sino también por la simplicidad y facilidad con la que se puede transitar desde el principio del disco hasta el final, sumiéndonos en un dulce y ligero trance, pero también en un camino lleno de cambios y giros que abarcan desde las melodías limpias a las explosiones inesperadas de contundencia, abordado todo ello con una gran precisión, sin excesivos e innecesarios alardes de virtuosismo, algo que muy pocas bandas dentro del género son capaces de conseguir The NotDeadWebzine ‘Jardín de la Croix destacan por su toque experimental, arriesgado, directo y guitarrero que recuerda por momentos a Battles o Mars Volta.

This is music that is thought out like an equation but it doesnt subtract from the excitement these musicians can generate Albums Galore ‘Perfectly executed and written, their debut outing oozes of swirling guitars and permanently varying motifs, both highlighted through the complex drumming and the absence of any kind of vocals ‘ Wobbel Blog ‘Una magistral clase de rock matemático rozando a los imposibles ‘Maps & Atlases pero combinándolos con solos, riffs, punteos… La madriguera 7/10 ‘Jardín de la Croix, música clásica del siglo XXI, volvemos a donde lo importante es el sonido, donde el ritmo, intensidad y matiz son los protagonistas Gramófono en la red ‘Jardín de la Croix is one of the most exciting secrets currently existing in the experimental arena of Spains rock.
