Sad news to report that the art historian Jonathan Brown passed away this week at the age of 82. Brown will be remembered for his scholarship on seventeenth-century paintings and particularly the works of Diego Velázquez. His resume includes many scholarly publications on the likes of Velázquez and Spanish Art, alongside his pioneering exhibitions held at the Frick, Princeton and Prado museums.

For those who can read Spanish, the Prado Museum has shared the first two chapters of a set of essays dedicated to Jonathan Brown's career which were published in 2012.
