Velázquez (Diego Rodríguez de Silva y Velázquez)
Diego Velázquez was born in Seville and trained with Francisco Pacheco before setting up as an independent master with his own studio. His early works primarily consist of still lifes and religious compositions. He later moved to Madrid, where he was appointed painter to the king and settled permanently at court.
The Thyssen-Bornemisza National Museum is a Madrid art gallery exhibiting the works of old and modern masters. It owes its existence to the lease agreement (1988) and the subsequent acquisition by the Spanish Government (1993), of the most valuable core of the private collection built over seven decades by the Thyssen-Bornemisza family.
