Velázquez composes: prototypes, replicas, and transformations
Velázquez composes: prototypes, replicas, and transformations
Fig. 8 / Diego Velázquez, Two
Young Men at a Humble Table,
ca. 1620, oil on canvas, 65.3
x 104 cm, London, English
Heritage, The Wellington
Collection, Apsley House.
Fig. 9 / Individual motifs, such
as the stacked bowls apparent
in the three paintings shown
in fig. 7 coincide perfectly
in shape and detail when
isolated. The same motif, taken
from a different composition
(fig. 8) was found to coincide
exactly when super-imposed.
This suggests that the same
cartoon was used in different
compositions, not exclusively as
a means of repeating a finished
painting.
