Manet called him "the greatest painter of all." Picasso was so inspired by his masterpiece Las Meninas that he painted 44 variations of it. Francis Bacon painted a study of his portrait of Pope Innocent X. Monet and Renoir, Corot and Courbet, Degas and Dal ... for so many champions of art history, the ultimate sounding board was--and remains--Diego Rodr guez de Silva y Vel zquez (1599-1660).

This monograph edition brings together Vel zquez's complete works with a selection of enlarged details and photography of recently restored paintings, achieved through the joint initiative of TASCHEN and the Wildenstein Institute. The dazzling images are accompanied by insightful commentary from Jos L pez-Rey on Vel zquez's interest in human life and his equal attention to all subjects, from an old woman frying eggs to a pope or king, as well as his commitment to color and light, which would influence the Impressionists over two centuries later.
