Most famous painting:
El Museo Nacional Del Prado
Las Meninas - 1656
(The Maids of Honour)
The painting shows a large room in the Madrid palace of King Philip IV of Spain, and presents several figures, most identifiable from the Spanish court, captured, as if in a snapshot. Some look out of the canvas towards the viewer, while others interact among themselves. The young Infanta Margaret Theresa is surrounded by her entourage of maids of honour, chaperone, bodyguard, two dwarfs and a dog. Behind them, Velázquez portrays himself working at a large canvas. Velázquez looks outwards. In the background there is a mirror that reflects the upper bodies of the king and queen. They appear to be placed outside the picture space in a position similar to that of the viewer, although some scholars have speculated that their image is a reflection from the painting Velázquez is shown working on.
Aventura en España
The Museo del Prado is the main Spanish national art museum, located in central Madrid. It features one of the world's finest collections of European art, from the 12th century to the early 19th century, based on the former Spanish Royal Collection, and unquestionably the best single collection of Spanish art.

The large numbers of works by Francisco de Goya, the artist most extensively represented in the collection, and by Diego Velázquez (Las Meninas), Titian, Peter Paul Rubens and Hieronymus Bosch are among the highlights of the collection.
It was around 1773 that Goya became involved in the creation of several frescoes, influenced by the paintings of Velásquez and Rembrandt. It is interesting to note that like Rembrandt, Goya and his wife had several children who did not reach adulthood. Only one of his sons survived.

His worked were very sought after, and in 1780 he was elected to the Royal Academy of San Fernando. A little later, he was named painter to King Charles IV, who was perhaps the most educated of the Spanish Monarchs of the era, and ultimately appointed Goya to the post of court painter. Goya painted portraits of the social elite, but he also continued making more tapestries. This was the height of Goya's artistic career, and he was at this point, considered the most successful, sought after and admired of all Spanish artists.

A few year later he was struck with an unknown illness that eventually left him deaf.

He later became known as the Father of Modern Art.
