The princess seems to step from Velazquez's masterpiece, as do her ladies-in-waiting, her royal parents, governess, the court dwarves, a handsome dog and, above all, the painter himself.

The princess seems to step from Velazquez's masterpiece, as do her ladies-in-waiting, her royal parents, governess, the court dwarves, a handsome dog and, above all, the painter himself. Ruth Craft's Pieter Brueghel's The Fair (Lippincott, 1976; . Ewa Zadrzynska's Girl with a Watering Can (Chameleon, 1990), and Sharon Wooding's The Painter's Cat (Putnam, 1994) are also based on specific paintings, but none of them succeeds as well as this charming offering.

Our family hopes that Johnson will do another book in a similar vein.

I have "Sybil and the Blue Rabbit" by the same illustrator, which I absolutely love. This is for the grandkids. Maybe someday we'll take them to see the painting that this book is about (at the Prado in Madrid).

This story The Princess and the Painter is a children’s literature book. The authors purpose for writing this text is for entertainment and to give an idea of what could possibly be a day in the life of a Spanish princess in the 1600’s.

This story is based the on the painting "Las Meninas" by artist Diego Velazquez. The story tells a "what might have been" story about the characters shown in the painting, specifically the young Infanta Margarita and her friendship with the artist. The story is short, simple, but very charming.
All that said, the illustrations make this book! I am an acknowledged sucker for beautifully illustrated children's books, and this one definitely delivers. A charming story becomes truly captivating through the beautiful paintings!
