Format: Hardcover
This book is the catalogue for an exhibition held at the National Gallery of Scotland in 1996.

It focuses on the early years of Velazquez, when he was still in Seville, before his move to Madrid.

The catalogue provides a series of essays dealing with various aspects of Seville in the days of the painter, and with different issues relevant to the artist himself.

There is also a real catalogue with every work put on display reproduced full size with an individual entry for each item, mostly paintings, but also engravings and sculptures.

If you are interested in the early paintings of Diego Velazquez this book is a treasure. Several excellent essays carefully set the scene of early 17th century Seville, and allow insight into the formative years of this great artist. Book layout and quality of reproductions is excellent.
