Canvas credited to Diego Velazquez sold for 8 million euros at Abalarte in Madrid

A painting that had been in the same family for generations and was only recently credited to Spain’s famed artist Diego Velazquez was sold Tuesday in Madrid for eight million euros, auction house Abalarte said. The “Portrait of a girl,” which portrays a young girl with large, sad eyes, her hands held together as if in prayer, is believed to be an early work by the Sevillian artist best known for his masterpiece “Las Meninas”, on display in Madrid’s Prado Museum. It is believed to have been painted by Velazquez around 1616 or 1617, when the artist was only 17 or 18 years old and still living in the southern Spanish city of Seville, the auction house said. It had been in the same family for several generations but had never been properly analysed until the owner decided to sell it. Richard de Willermin, a specialist on 17th century Spanish art who collaborates with the auction house, examined the small oil on canvas painting and concluded it was by Velazquez.
