Las Meninas, DiegoVelázquez

Las Meninas, by Diego Velázquez

I do not understand much in art, but i do like paintings. Some more than others.

In this painting, the King and Queen of Spain are reflected in the mirror behind the princess, fact that makes them in front of the painter – who is Velázquez himself –  and thus they are likely to be represented in the canvas that is facing away from us.

Definitely not an ordinary piece.
