Miranda, Juan Carreño De

Juan Carreño de Miranda was named exactly the same as his father. His family moved to Madrid in 1623, and he trained in Madrid during the late 1620s as an apprentice to Pedro de Las Cuevas and Bartolomé Román.

Juan Carreño de Miranda was painting in the cloister of Doña María de Aragón and in the church of El Rosario and his good work came to the notice of Velázquez. In 1658 Carreño was hired as an assistant on a royal commission to paint frescoes in the Alcázar of Madrid, which was later destroyed in a fire in 1734. In 1671, upon the death of Sebastian de Herrera, he was appointed court painter to the queen and began to paint primarily portraits. Juan Carreño de Miranda being a noble himself, by descent, had an understanding of the workings and psychology of the royal court as no painter before him, making his portraits of the Spanish royal family in an unprecedented documentary fashion.
