Brief Description

The artist said: "It is one of Velázquez's maids of honor, but I have framed her face to make it look like a portrait and because I find it funny how plain they were."

The painting described seems to approach a contemporary and playful perspective on the classic portrait of one of Velázquez's maids of honor. The artist has chosen to frame the maid's face to emphasize and transform the work into a more explicit portrait, thus playing with convention and the viewer's perception. 

This act of framing not only highlights the face but also implies a commentary on beauty and aesthetics of the time, suggesting that beauty standards can be subjective and culturally specific. The artist's choice of words, referring to the maids as "feitas," adds a layer of humor and irreverence that challenges the idealized representations of nobility in art. This approach not only pays homage to Velázquez but also challenges modern viewers to reconsider how we perceive art and history.
