Diego Velázquez - Seville - June 6, 1599
Before Diego Velázquez made it big as the court painter to King Philip IV, he painted bodegons. Derived from the word bodega, meaning tavern, bodegon paintings are a class of genre paintings that feature still-life kitchen elements.
His contemporaries criticized his choice in subject as still-life paintings were regarded as the lowest on the hierarchy of tastes as the everyday objects were seen as unworthy. In response, he stated, "I would rather be the first painter of common things, than second in higher art."
In Spain the days are filled with seemingly endless string of meals, small and large,
Brunch is a new concept. On weekends, and the countries metropolises,
like Madrid, Barcelona & Seville, particularly hotel restaurants, it has been gaining traction.
#Brunchalona has even emerged as a Social Media #.
Brunch is 100% not a Spanish tradition. But we are after all still in Key West!

Velázquez painted this picture of Bacchus surrounded by eight drinkers for Philip IV who hung it in
his summer bedroom.
The peasants imploring the god of wine to relieve their miseries.
Superb craftsmanship is shown in the painting of the full, parted lips of the younger man, the eyes of the old man listening to the story and his slight movement towards the glass and the expression on the face of the woman pouring out the wine, concentrating lest a single drop be spilled.
