sinopsis

A gripping and beguiling blend of art history, memoir and travel writing which delves into the mysteries and meanings of Las Meninas, Velazquez's iconic masterpiece.

Michael Jacobs was haunted by Velazquez's enigmatic masterpiece Las Meninas from first encountering it in the Prado as a teenager. In Everything is Happening Jacobs searches for the ultimate significance of the painting by following the trails of associations from each individual character in the picture, as well as his own memories of and relationship to this extraordinary work.

From Jacobs' first trip to Spain to the complex politics of Golden Age Madrid, to his meeting with the man who saved Las Meninas during the Spanish Civil war, via Jacobs' experiences of the sunless world of the art history academy, Jacobs dissolves the barriers between the past and the present, the real and the illusory.
