    Nice little book, with some interesting biographical info on Velazquez The reproductions are good, but the book is very small, like a pocket book, but that is the only negative What a great painter Velazquez was What an amazing ability to capture likeness, and beyond likeness to transmit the essence of the person or scene Few have had his talent and ability.
