Velazquez, Diego Rodriguez de Silva, Spain 1599 to 1660 Oil Paintings
His illustrious appointment with King Philip IV empowered Velazquez to get away from the oversight of the Inquisition and seek after the opportunity of imaginative articulation in the royal court. After his final re-visitation of Madrid, Spain, he became sick with a fever. On August 6, 1660, he kicked the bucket and was covered. After eight days, his better half passed on and was covered close to him.
