Diego Velasquez

I just noticed that Google had a lovely Diego Velasquez portrait as their logo today- apparently it's his birthday. The one they chose, Las Meninas, is one that I studied in art class and wrote a paper about at one point. (World History? Decathlon? I don't know...) Take some time to examine it- it's an amazing portrait with some interesting theories concerning the people involved. Here's the small version, and click here for the larger one.
