The Waterseller

Posted by clissold345 on December 31, 2006

In The Waterseller by Velazquez the focus of attention is the glass (with a shadowy fig in it to sweeten the water). The hands of the waterseller and the boy almost touch on the stem of the glass and they look past each other. My eye is also drawn to the boy’s crisp white collar and to the two earthenware vessels (the larger vessel has three drops of water on it). In the current state of the picture the drinker in the background is (thankfully) much less visible than in the photo given here.
