'Velázquez and His Contemporary Painters in Seville'

'Velázquez and His Contemporary Painters in Seville'

A lecture by Ignacio Cano Rivero, Head of the Department of Exhibitions at the Museo de Bellas Artes de Sevilla.

Velázquez was born and raised in the artistic and cultural environment of Seville until he left for Madrid in 1623. The influence of these formative years, above all those involving his teacher Pacheco, along with his continuing relationships with Sevillian artists and characters, such as the count-duke of Olivares, would determine his method of understanding and practicing painting. In the same way, Velázquez’s time at court affected Sevillian painting through a process of influences and changes —evidenced in works by Zurbarán, Murillo and Herrera el Mozo— that occurred as the result of relationships maintained between the painter and his countrymen from the south.
