Really the perfect composition

I read somewhere that this was voted the greatest modern painting of all time?

Alfred Gijon
Seguro que por su técnica, SÍ!

Well deserved Artist Narcissism! Nothing says a royal family has to be beautiful this one certainly was not. The Goya portraits of them are even less flattering but they the way they were portrayed . Velazquez is more honest than a realist yet this is a trick painting because it is a mirror image. Ever notice that a video camera image is not a mirror image? This one is a mirror image and unless you are dyslexic you probably don't notice.

All these Art Emperors live based on the death Artist’s Legacies with no doubt. While the Artist is alive, even they don't accept his/her call in any time. Please don’t give me wrong. you can test them yourselves. Mail them for a review or exhibition of your artworks, you will find your applications in a trashcan quite soon. They live in nice mansions or a House of Art with proudly call Art Galleries/Museums and the artists are suffering of poverty and struggling to pay the bills to live. Well. That kind of artist will be very lucky if he/she sells some paintings to those Emperors/Art Collectors, and they call him/her back in 5 to ten years if he/she is still alive or death. The good news will be if he/she is death to make some money but tons of money. They take your paintings and make their own stories about them and make them as an iconic painting and that is the time that their lottery matches for a jackpot. Basically, we all work for them for free. When they call their selves the Emperors, another meaning of that is the Slavery Masters. We create works of art until we are alive with no respect or appreciation and the end, they take advantage of them mercilessly. I am not venge it to discuss deeply but reality is the word of Lord. In the whole history of art, Mark Rothko was realized the exact meaning of Art Emperors which I am talking about.

Diego Velázquez respeto a su manera los principios del Tratado de la Pintura de Leonardo.
La luz entra por un porton?
Se altlernan la luz, lo sombro y lo luminoso.

Diego Velázquez respeto a las siervas del rey pintandolas como seres humanos.
Solo en parte respeto las premisas de Leonardo.

María Amelia Sanchez Pantusa
Leonardo da Vinci escribió en su Tratado que el maestro es el espejo de los pintores y hay que hacer lo que el maestro refleja, la semejanza, pero el espejo está con sombras y no muestra las figuras. Por esto Diego Velázquez no considera al espejo como su maestro y si se ve la perspectiva y el punto de fuga del centro, Diego Velázquez se está retratando él como pintor y maestro, tiene la paleta y los pinceles en las manos.

"136. De las beldades y fealdades.
Puestas juntas las beldades y las fealdades, se hacen la una a la otra más potentes."
