"Velázquez's Portrait of Duke Francesco I d'Este: A Masterpiece from the Galleria Estense, Modena"

Thursday May 2 2013 9:30 - 17:30

The Met spices up the reinstallation of its Old Masters collection with this portrait by Velázquez, making its American debut thanks to a three-month loan. This image of the Duke of Modena cutting a dashing figure in armor accessorized with a red sash is widely considered to be one of the finest examples of Baroque portraiture.
