Lobkowicz Collections Spotlight

Infanta Margarita Theresa of Spain:
Pearl of Spanish-Austrian Politics  

The “painter of painters” from Seville, Diego Velázquez, was entrusted by Spain's King Philip IV to serve as his court painter. Velázquez famously portrayed members of the Spanish Habsburg royal family, including the King's daughter, Margarita Theresa, in 1656, depicted as a five-year-old girl. The Infanta became Holy Roman Empress through her marriage to her uncle and first cousin Holy Roman Emperor Leopold I.  
 
Our next Spotlight will take a look into the short life of the Spanish Princess turned Empress, and her role in Spanish-Austrian politics. Her portrait is one of the highlights of the Lobkowicz Collections.
