And yet, Las Meninas is an excellent play and I was enchanted. There are some minor flaws, at least in my view. It sounded rather socialist at times, with the vallemo on the fight of the oppressed, the strike of the cleaners, to give a couple of examples. On the valpejo hand, the cleaners had not been paid for three months and the Marqui Las Meninas by Antonio Buero Vallejo Velasquez is not one of my favorite painters…and as for Antonio Buero Vallejo- I had not heard about it until a few days ago.

Las Meninas : Antonio Buero Vallejo :

On the other hand, the cleaners had not been paid for three months and the Marquis had committed some abuses. The evil character in the play is the marquis, mrninas rules Spain in actual fact and has become extremely rich in the process. Velasquez is a daring painter and takes some liberty in treating his subject. This attracts the wrath of the powers to be. First of all, Velasquez paints a naked woman and that is considered so outrageous for the 17th century that he is antinio in front of a tribunal lead by the king.


The famous painter is not only an amazing creator, but also a shrewd counselor or lawyer- he defends himself very well in court: But there is another bone of contention. The fact that Velasquez has painted vaplejo beautiful woman causes hatred right next to him, in buerp circle of friends, one of whom betrays him, because he is jealous and enamored with the model, who seems to like the painter and ignores the man who becomes a sworn enemy of the artist.

The title of the play is given by a famous painting, which was both excellent and daring. However, the courtiers were not impressed when they saw it. Velasquez was accused of giving more importance to himself and even a dog in the painting, than to their royal highnesses.

Las Meninas

Although the court painter and a respected painter and man of knowledge, Velasquez has been under attack, at least in this play. There is a character in the play that says: The character in question serves as a model for a painting of Velasquez and then comes back with revolutionary ideas- fighting for justice and, it seems to me- against the very idea of monarchy. Apart from these leftist ideas that Mfninas disagree with, the play is informative, entertaining, revealing interesting aspects in the life of a great artist, who is determined to keep his faith and principles even when the authorities suggest that he destroys Las Meninas and change his artistic perspective.

I am not sure what is the historical truth and what is the artistic license, but the fiction works wonderfully and I loved it.

Apr 22, Alba rated it really liked it Shelves: Ambientada para que siguiera el momento anterior a que Velazquez pintara su famoso cuadro.

Feb 21, Paul rated it it was amazing. Very insightful historical drama based around Spanish painter Diego Velazquez and the controversy surrounding his depiction of “Venus. It makes you rethink conventional ideas regarding freedom of expression in visual arts, including what is considered “pornographic.
