Solemn Painting

Description This famous piece by Velázquez, who served the Spanish court, shows us something about perspective. It depicts a young princess with her "ladies-in-waiting." The artist himself is seen to the left. The king and queen are reflected in the mirror to the artist's right, so the perspective is that of the king. The king...watching the artist...paint the king and the queen...
