This poster represents a 1656 painting by Diego Velázquez, the leading artist of the Spanish Golden Age. It depicts the main chamber in the Royal Alcazar of Madrid during the reign of King Philip IV of Spain. The 5-year-old Infanta Margaret Theresa is surrounded by her entourage of maids of honour, chaperone, bodyguard, two dwarfs and a dog. Just behind them, Velázquez portrays himself working at a large canvas. Today it is valued at 4 million US.
