Las Meninas

Overview

The long reign (1621–1665) of Philip IV was characterized by the political, military and economic decline of Spain and social misery. At the same time, however, it was characterized by an incomparable flourishing of letters and arts, as he was a great lover of theater and music, as well as an enthusiastic collector of works of art. Many important creators of the Spanish Golden Age found a home in his court, like Pedro Calderόn de la Barca and Diego Velázquez. But what was it like the music that dressed up Calder performances or the music that Velázquez’s  prefered to listen when he created some of his most important works?
