Velázquez is best known for his formal portraits of the Spanish monarchy, but some of his most captivating works are bust-length likenesses produced in both Spain and Italy. Among the highlights of this exhibit are his iconic portrait of Juan de Pareja and two on loan from the Hispanic Society: Portrait of a Young Girl (ca. 1640) and Cardinal Camillo Astalli-Pamphili (ca. 1650–51).
