Venus at her Mirror (The Rokeby Venus) 1651: Canvas Replica Painting: Small

(based on 1 review)

By artist Diego Velazquez (1599-1660), in the National Gallery, London
Often regarded as one of the most beautiful and mesmerizing portrayals of Venus in the history of western painting, the goddess gazes into a mirror held aloft by a young Cupid. A Spanish painter who was the leading artist in the court of King Philip IV, Velzquez was often commissioned to create portraits of European royalty. The authentic stretched canvas replica painting captures the original work's texture, depth of color, and even its subtle brushstrokes, which are applied by hand exclusively for Design Toscano. Our replica European style, bright gold-toned, ribbed frame is cast in quality designer resin with an acanthus leaf and floret border that draws the eye toward the beautiful image.

Diego Velazquez (1599-1660)

Velazquez was one of the most important European artists of the 17th century, spending his career from 1623 in the service of Philip IV of Spain. His early canvases comprised bodegones and religious paintings, but as a court artist he was largely occupied in executing portraits, while also producing some historical, mythological and further religious works.

His painting were deeply affected by the work of Rubens and by Venetian artists, especially Titian, as well as by the experience of two trips to Italy. Under these joint influences he developed a uniquely personal style characterized by very loose, expressive brushwork. Although he had no immediate followers, he was greatly admired by such later painters as Goya and Manet.
