Infanta Maria, Later Queen of Hungary, Oil by Diego Velazquez (1599-1660, Spain)
Infanta Maria, Later Queen of Hungary is a oil painting by the Spanish painter Diego Velazquez. It was painted in 1630. The carefully modelled face in this head-and-shoulders portrait was to serve as the basis for several full-length portraits of the Infanta, workshop copies that may have been intended as gifts to royal residences abroad. This painting (60 x 46 cm) is currently housed in the Museo del Prado, Madrid.
