Velázquez
17.06 | 28.08.2022

From the Prado Museum in Madrid, the Portrait of Queen Maria Anna of Austria, one of the last masterpieces by the master of masters Velázquez (1599-1660), arrives at Accademia Carrara.

The portrait of Mariana of Austria in the galleries of the Accademia Carrara brings memories of Spain to Bergamo. It draws us into the rooms of the Escorial, when the very young queen entered in 1649, after being welcomed to Madrid with sumptuous displays and magnificent celebrations.
