Diego Velasquez (1599 – 1660) was the court painter to Philip IV of Spain. His masterpiece is the gnomic, layered Las Meninas, which is housed in the Prado and has been copied and interpreted among others by Picasso. The luxurious detailing on the dress is compared to the creamy folding of the dress.
