Does Social Status Matter? One of Spain’s awe-inspiring painters in history, Diego Velazquez not only painted beautiful and detailed artwork, but also created a broad story for the viewer to recreate and reinvent. One such painting, according to the Prado Museum, is “Las Meninas,” in which he tells the story of Infanta Margarita, her little meninas, and of course her parents (“Museo del Prado”).
