Quote:"I would rather be the first painter of common things than second in higher art."
He learned much from studying nature.After his marriage at the age of 19 Velazquez went to Madrid and made 2 trips to Italy.Except these two journeys Velazquez lived in Madrid as a court painter. His paintings include landscapes,mythological, and religious subjects, and scenes from common life called genre pictures. When he was 24 he painted a portrait of PhilipIV, who became his patron. Duties of Velazquez royal offices occupied his time, he was made marshal of the royal household, and as such he was responsible for the planning of ceremonies. The wedding of the Infanta Maria Theresa to LouisXIV of France in 1660 on Aug.6 was Velazquez' last charge of one of his greatest ceremonies. He is remembered as the "noblest and most commanding man among the artists of his country."
