In a series of spotlight talks, Dr. Frank Martin explores themes found in an individual artwork on view, offering an opportunity to discover new insights with a true fine arts specialist. This first Art in Focus features Juan de Pareja’s Portrait of Philip IV of Spain, 1654 — an image famously originated by Spanish painter Diego Velazquez and recreated by artists like Pablo Picasso, but in this instance, expertly painted by Velazquez’s former enslaved assistant of Moorish descent, Juan de Pareja.
