Filter list according to painting color palette:
 
Diego Rodriguez de Silva y Velazquez, or Diego Velazquez for short, was born in Seville, Andalusia, Spain in 1599 and died in 1660. He was a Spanish baroque painter who was the lead artist in King Philip IV's court. His paintings range from historical and cultural scenes, few genre paintings, and a majority of masterpiece portraits. His commissions include those from the Spanish royal family and other noblemen and notable figures of that time. Velazquez's work was used as a model for the impressionists and realists of the 19th century; his technique was considered very painterly and expressive for his time. It was his royal appointment with King Philip IV that enabled Velazquez to escape the censorship of the Inquisition and pursue the freedom of artistic expression in the royal court. After his final return to Madrid, Spain, he fell ill with fever. On August 6, 1660 he died and was buried. Eight days later his wife died and was buried next to him.
