    Entertainment... How to look at a painting of ... Velazquez again.

    You do not have to regret anything, everything you did was correct, absolutely correct, it was a logical appreciation.

    Entertainment... How to look at a painting of ... Velazquez again.

    To a large extent I agree with you, I have not wanted to make a problem either, I simply give an opinion that may be to agree or not, and reason it. In fact, where I do see the possibility of the two years of Jesus is, as I said, in the Gospel of Saint Luke. I do not know if I have answered...

    Entertainment... How to look at a painting of ... Velazquez again.

    You say: “ to the place where Jesus was living with His parents. Verse 11 states that Jesus was living in a house. This reveals that Jesus’ parents had moved to a house. Contrary to popular nativity scenes and paintings, Christ was now living in a house when the magi visited Him. His parents...

    Entertainment... How to look at a painting of ... Velazquez again.

    This painting is in Madrid! It is a copy of an original that is in the Old Pinakothek in Munich. The truth is that San José is a strange one, it could be what you say, why not. I think it is good to give all kinds of ideas, even if they are not the main subject and as long as they are not...

    David, Velazquez was an exceptional portraitist since he was a child, this is written in the memoirs of Francisco Pacheco, his teacher. The portrait was what he was always most interested in. The contrast between light and shadow is also part of his art sense, even from the beginning. A dark...

    Of course Kathar1na, after giving the solution I went on the internet to see what was said about the golden point and I saw that they only talk about the golden section, which is not the same. I tried to insist on searching with intuition and with a simple mathematical operation and not only...

    Chenausky, I'm sure, Kathar1na and you were about to find it at any moment, it was simply a matter of changing the strategy of how to look at the problem. That's why I gave the clues about the gold, and about the numbers at the end. But although I knew that you both had it ready, we could not...

    Let's go there ... In Ancient Rome, Vitruvius, a famous archirect, established the Law of the Golden Section, which says: For a space divided into unequal parts to be pleasant and aesthetic, there must be the same relationship between the smallest and largest parts as between the largest and...

    Kathar1na, interesting, but I think that App is complicating you a lot. There is an easier and more logical way. You have worked a lot on this post, you have been VERY close for a long time, Chenahusky is also close, but I don't want to say it myself, I don't want to take away the pleasure of...

    Entertainment... How to look at a painting of ... Velazquez again.

    In this life, we have to follow our instincts, even if we don't know how to do it. There is one thing that we will reproach ourselves in the end, and that is not having been able to start something that we knew we had to do, but letting ourselves be paralyzed by logic ... At least that's what...

    Their first daughter was born on May 18, 1619, highly unlikely that she could have been the model. (Time for the newborn baby to grow up, paint the portrait, let it dry, to correct it, to dry the correction, to dry the entire painting ... The signature is usually placed when a painting is...

    Very nice appreciation !, with a precious feeling of Velazquez, knowing that that man who looks at Jesus, one of the wise men, is Velazquez himself, it is his self-portrait.
