VELÁZQUEZ, Diego Rodriguez de Silva y
(b. 1599, Sevilla, d. 1660, Madrid)

Portrait of a Lady

Oil on canvas, 123 x 99 cm
Staatliche Museen, Berlin

This portrait by Velázquez is unusual for showing a woman on so large a scale. It is supposed that the sitter is Doña Inéz de Zuñiga, sister of the count of Olivares, and duchess of San-Lucar.
