The work of Diego Velázquez (1599-1660), full of audacity, marks a milestone in the history of painting. Constantly searching for a human truth through the treatment of light and space, Velázquez is a documentarian avant la lettre. The film goes to the discovery of the singularity of the “painter of the painters” and allows to measure the artistic and aesthetic revolution that Diego Velázquez triggered. From Venus to its mirror to the mirror of the The Ladies-in-waiting, the film escapes any didacticism and attempts to recreate the exceptional emotional link between the work of Velázquez and the public, between the eye of the painter and the viewer. Between his life and our lives.
