An Old Woman Cooking Eggs by Diego Velazquez art print
28 x 35.6 cm art print reproduction featuring An Old Woman Cooking Eggs by Diego Velazquez from the National Galleries of Scotland Collection.
This remarkable picture clearly demonstrates Velazquez’s flair for painting people and everyday objects directly from life. An Old Woman Cooking Eggs is one of a small group of paintings known as bodegones (from the Spanish bodega for a cellar or inn) which were naturalistic kitchen or tavern scenes with prominent still lives.
Diego Velázquez was a Spanish painter, the leading artist in the court of King Philip IV, and one of the most important painters of the Spanish Golden Age.
