“Infanta Arcs”
Framed 11 x 14?
Collage, pastel, graphite

“An infanta is a princess who is not heir to the throne. The Infanta was Margarita Teresa of Spain who was betrothed to the Holy Roman Emperor at a very young age.  Since he had to wait years until she came of age, paintings were periodically painted by Diego Velázquez and sent to the Emperor.  These iconic images have stolen the hearts of Spain and spread around the world.  Huge Infanta-like sculptures were displayed in the Whitney Museum of Art in New York City last year.  Any person who has taken an art history class would recognize her.
Part of The Infanta’s appeal, aside from the fact that she’s pretty, is her wardrobe.  The dresses are very architectural with huge frames under the skirts.  The arcs and circles in this painting follow the profile lines of the figure and express this ideal.“
