  • About the artwork

    In this artwork, artist Miguel Guía turns to the famous theme of the Infant Girls by Velazquez. This time he is using cubism as a vehicle to simplify the forms and spaces, wrapping a desired outline with planes and lines... filling up the rythm of the forms and showing us the famous painting by Velazquez in a single glimpse.

    One time they asked Salvador Dalí: "what would be the thing you saved from the Prado Museum, if it burned and you would only be able to save one thing?"... and he responded: "The air and space which exists within the painting of the Infant Girls (Meninas) by Velazuez". This particular phrase inspired Miguel Guía when choosing a name for his sculpture.

    The sculpture is made of a layer of nickel on cold smelting of copper with the base of graphite or marble dust.
