Oblidant Velázquez. Las Meninas
The catalogue reproduces the entire series of Las Meninas that Picasso painted in 1957, together with other works by almost 25 different artists from various periods also inspired by Velázquez's masterpiece. By means of various essays and analyses of the featured works, the book invites a new reading of Picasso's series, rooted in the tradition of Spanish painting and at the same time highlighting its significance as a precursor of our contemporary interest in issues addressed by many subsequent interpretations, which have engaged concepts such as the space, the weight of the iconographic elements or the presence of the processes of artistic creation and of the artist himself in the resulting work.
