Diego Velazquez: Retrato de nina

Retrato de Nina (or Nina’s portrait in English) is a 1640 portrait of un unknown girl by Spanish court painter Diego Velazquez (1599-1660). In this likely unfinished painting he combines a realistic likeness with an acute ability to bring out the quiet intelligence of the girl. Velazquez is widely seen as the premier painter of the Spanish golden age and had artistic tributes made to him by the likes of Picasso and Bacon in the twentieth century.

Diego Velazquez’s Retrato de Nina is at the Hispanic Society of America in New York.
