Publisher's summary: This collection studies two of Diego Velázquez’s most famous works, The Spinners and Las Meninas, as theoretically informed manifestos of painterly brushwork. Knox presents a Velázquez who was much more aware of the art theory of his era than previously acknowledged, leading to his new interpretation of these works as representing together a polemically charged celebration of the “handedness” of painting. Contents: Introduction; Critical responses to painterly painting; An allegory of painterly painting; The Spinners and the triumph of Venice; The Spinners: A witty critique; Las Meninas: social and structural perspectives; Las Meninas: painterly polemics; Bibliography.
