Velázquez at the Grand Palais in Paris from March 15 to July 13, 2015

For me, exhibitions devoted to the paintings of the Spanish artist Diego Velázquez always evoke a sense of wonder and possibility. Velázquez' paintings hold me spellbound. I will be in Verona, Italy in May and will find my way to Paris for sure. Perhaps a rendezvous with the esteemed restorer from the Van Gogh Museum - René Boitelle?

An exhibition produced jointly by the RMN-Grand Palais and the Musée du Louvre, in collaboration with the Kunsthistorisches Museum, Vienna.
Curator : Guillaume Kientz, curator in the Department of paintings, Musée du Louvre
Exhibition design : Maciej Fiszer
