"After Velasquez Equestrian Portrait Of Philippe IV Of Spain"Equestrian portrait representing King Philip IV of Spain after Diego Velasquez, original kept in the Prado Museum in Madrid. Philip IV of Spain (1605-1665) was king of Spain and India. Poor politician, he marked his time with his great interest in art, his reign is undoubtedly the "golden century" of Spanish culture. He is considered one of the greatest collectors and patrons of his time. He collected old artists such as Raphael, Durer, Tintoretto, Titian .... he was a builder king and protector of the artists of his time. Thus he brought the young Diego Velasquez (1599-1660) to the court of Madrid. At the age of 28, Velasquez became a painter of the King's Chamber as well as a superintendent of the king's work. This privileged location allows him to take great portraits of the king, the royal family and the great people of Spain, but also to enrich the royal collections through his travels. Velasquez is considered one of the main Masters of Spanish painting and one of the Masters of universal painting. Many of his works are kept at the Prado Museum in Madrid, but also in the most prestigious international museums, inspiring many generations of artists. Our oil on canvas was remarkably produced by an artist from the 19th century from the equestrian portrait kept at the Prado. This portrait is very innovative for the time both by the posture of the king and his horse in action as the context, since the portrait is placed in front of a landscape, the mountains of the Madrid countryside ... Good condition, some repainted and small reinforcements on the back of the canvas. Delivery costs Metropolitan France 20 euro, Europe 30 euro, rest of the world 45 euro.
