Velázquez Rediscovered features a newly identified painting by Velázquez, Portrait of a Man, formerly ascribed to the workshop of Velázquez, and recently reattributed to the master himself following its cleaning and restoration. It will be shown alongside other works from the Museums superior collection of works by the great Spanish painter.

This event illuminates the recent discovery of a self-portrait by the 17th-century painting master Diego Velázquez in the Museums collection. In their introduction, MMA curator Keith Christiansen and conservator Michael Gallagher tell the fascinating story behind this revelation. A lecture by Jonathan Brown, Institute of Fine Arts, New York University, follows and highlights the significance and implications of this important new attribution.
