Works by the Spanish master Diego
Velazquez are on show in Bayonne at the Basque Museum.
It marks a considerable, yet worthwhile investment for the museum.

Javier Portas is from the Prado in Madrid:
“Thanks to this painting Maria Teresa gets to know for the first time the face of her future husband. She liked to walk by this painting and say to her maids of honour, ‘look, here is my future husband.’
As a court painter, Velazquez recorded the major events of a turbulent time.
The exhibition runs until September 25th at the Basque Museum of Bayonne.
