This is an interesting novel that is both an exploration of Art History and the place & power (or lack thereof) for women in 17th century Spain. Told from different viewpoints, including the artist Velazquez and the young Infanta, Muirden attemtps to make the grand historical personal, and to explore many different and complex themes through 'traditional' historical fiction.

Sometimes it works, though often the writer uses her research a little too heavily, as though showing off how much she knows.
Overall this is an enjoyable read, though it is hard to feel much sympathy for the vain and often vacuous main characters ( )
