Velázquez Career can be characterised as a lifelong examination of the relationship of painting to nature, in which bushwork takes a leading role. As he developed, he realised evergreater physical and psycological naturalism with progressively more pronounced and elegant brushstrokes, attaining miracolous effects of illusion with and astounding, abbreviated technique based on the implication rather than the elaboration of detail.
The synthesis of the life and work Velázquez that the Professor Santiago Alcolea i Gil writes in this book offer the reader a wide overview of the work of one of the world s most oustanding creative artists of all time.
