Philip III

1627. Oil on canvas.
Room 024

Velázquez never saw Philip III, who died in 1621 before the artist arrived at court in Madrid. When he was required to include the monarch in The Expulsion of the Moriscos, a now lost work, he made this preliminary study. Velázquez based himself on portraits painted during Philip’s lifetime, which he transformed by adapting them to his own style and to the King’s near profile pose in the final painting.
