Las Meninas

In my class, the history of art in early civilization, we did a project where we had to recreate Las Meninas (1656) by Diego Velasquez in our own way. this painting was also recreated by Francisco Goya and Pablo Picasso. This painting is interesting because the artist’s point of few is from looking into a mirror painting himself, and the royal family. In the square mirror behind them are the king and queen’s faces, as if they were coming into the room from the other side and there is a mysterious man lurking in the doorway. In my version I had a royal ancient Egyptian family with the artist chiseling into a wall instead of painting. Instead of the little boy in the corner with a dog, i chose to put a cat and the king and queen are the statues in the background.

My version

Las Meninas- Pablo Picasso (1957)

Las Meninas- Diego Velasquez
