Literature

J. Gudiol, Velázquez, Madrid 1973, translated by K. Lyons, London 1974, p. 324, cat. no. 15, reproduced p. 54, figure 34, as Velázquez.

Catalogue Note

This painting was published in 1973 by Gudiol (see Literature) as an early work by Velázquez, dateable circa 1618-19. The style of the painting, which reveals close affinities with the work of Francisco Herrera el Viejo, certainly suggests that it was painted in Seville around this date, when the young Velázquez was in his formative years.
