Study for “Las Meninas Suprematistas.” I'm looking in this study of Velasques’ Las Meninas, for what seems to me the two most interesting aspects of this masterpiece: perspective, leading into and out of the painting, and the use of the numbers 4 and 3 in the use of space and distribution of the components. The perspective used by Velasques in the room’s architecture leads the viewer's eyes deep into the room, going even further than the foreground characters and all the way to the reflection on the mirror and to the character leaving (or entering?) the room, inviting the viewer to the life in the palace. But the eyes of Velasques and Infanta Margarita staring at the viewer , and the reflection of the King and Queen in the mirror, creates another perspective that leads the viewer’s eyes outwardly, making the viewer part of the painting. As for the composition, the canvas can be divided into 4 parts, just like a cartesian graph. The height of Velasques’ eyes, the mirror and door, divides the canvas into top and bottom. The Infanta’s left eye divides the canvas into left and right. 4 parts therefore. The characters are divided into 4 groups of 3, being the canvas in the painting one and the reflections on the mirror another single one, giving us a total of 12(4x3). In this study I intend of leaving just these essential aspects of the painting, so we can further admire how the genius of Velasques could build such a masterpiece from simple geometry.
