(big) question num.1: why cut the most important details?







Violent emotions always take you by surprise (they aren't called "violent" for nothing, right?)

Never & then never did i think i'd be even mildly touched by Las Meninas in Prado. Well, little did i know....

Besides the fact that i had the rare luxury to find myself in front of it, alone, at around 10:15am (without planning to do so, it just happened), I never expected to like it because somehow the reproductions i saw of it never impressed me too much...

And now I know why that was & why in real life i was touched.

Somehow, most reproductions leave out the detail that was the first one i saw in real life & that changed my idea of Las Meninas forever....

I found proof of this unreasonable 'censorship' once again in my room in Sevilla.
