Donation to the museum

After donating it to the museum, a museum label will give a description of the painting. In New Horizons, the museum label reads:

Las Meninas
Diego Velázquez, circa 1656
Oil on canvas

This famous piece by Velázquez, who served the Spanish court, shows us something about perspective. It depicts a young princess with her "ladies-in-waiting." The artist himself is seen to the left. The king and queen are reflected in the mirror to the artist's right, so the perspective is that of the king. The king...watching the artist...paint the king and the queen...

  • Note: Prior to New Leaf, paintings did not have visual differences between forged and genuine versions. Therefore, paintings given to Blathers were fake or authentic at random.


In New Leaf

The woman wearing the white dress is tall in the fake painting and short in the real one.
