Diego Velazquez The Waterseller of Seville
The Waterseller of Seville epitomizes all that Diego Velázquez set out to achieve in the bodegones. It is widely said to be the greatest of all his Seville paintings. The subject of the painting is the waterseller. This was a common form of employment for street urchins in Velázquez's Seville and thus a fitting subject for a bodegone. The seller has two customers: a young boy, possibly painted from the same model as used for the boys in The Lunch and Old Woman Cooking Eggs, and a young man in the background shadows, (time has caused him to fade somewhat - he is clearer in the Uffizi version). In the foreground sit the seller's gigantic pots of water, glistening with streams of running water. So large and rounded, they almost protrude out of the painting into the observer's space. The seller hands a freshly poured glass of water to the boy. In it sits a fig, a perfumer intended to make the water taste fresher - something still done in Seville today.
