Date: Thursday 18 February 2021
Time: 13.00-14.00 GMT
Location: Zoom (Online)
Speakers: Natalia Muñoz-Rojas (Enrique Harris Frankford Curatorial Assistant, The Wallace Collection) and Patricia Manzano Rodríguez (PhD Candidate, Zurbarán Centre for Spanish and Latin American Art, Durham University)
The Wallace Collection has eight paintings attributed to Velázquez and his school. Yet, few of them have a firm attribution. This is partly due to how little is known about Velázquez’s school, studio and assistants. Juan Bautista del Mazo is the only assistant about whom more is known.
Patricia Manzano Rodríguez is currently working on the first monograph on Del Mazo, which aims to unravel his oeuvre from that of his master. Natalia Muñoz-Rojas will ask her about her research and findings, and their conversation may even cause us to reassess the figure of Mazo and our perception of his work.
Registration and Location: This talk will be hosted online through Zoom and YouTube.
