Reproducing Spanish Royalty
See how Velazquez's portraits highlight the inbreeding rampant in Spanish royalty:
Researcher Michelle Vaughn discusses copies, genetics, history, and portait paintings. She goes into depth on the portraits Diego Velazquez was commissioned to create of the family of Spanish King Philip IV -- a family notorious for in-breeding. In "Reproducing Spanish Royalty" from PKN Garrison Vol. 6, Michelle discusses the digital works of art she has created that tell stories about the nature of replication, incest, and Velazquez' painterly techniques.
