Deigo de Velazquez artwork and Caravaggio
Caravaggio was quite famous for his dramatic use of light and dark effects which was incorporated into many of his paintings and this is one of the factors that greatly influenced his contemporaries including Diego de Velazquez. Some of Caravaggio’s religious paintings include the Madonna in various forms, the Sacrifice of Isaac and many other works. Having been influenced by Caravaggio to a great extent, Velazquez too had created many religious art works using the same light and dark shade technique of Caravaggio into his work. Some of his outstanding religious works were Las Meninas (Maid of Honor) Joseph’s Bloody Coat Brought to Jacob (1630) and many others.
