More about Las Meninas
The painting shows a slice of life in the court of King Philip IV of Spain. The artist has painted himself into the painting, working on a portrait, and looking towards the viewer. Another interesting detail is the reflection in the mirror of the king and queen, and it remains unclear whether the reflection is showing them to be standing in the same spot as the viewer, or if it is a reflection of the painting on which Diego is working.

Other detail includes the queen’s chamberlain (back right) and possible relative of the artist. The more you look, the more you will see.

Diego Velázquez is regarded as the leading artist of the Spanish Golden age, and this his most impressive and important work. It hangs in the Museo Nacional Del Prado.
