Velázquez or the Statue of Velázquez is an instance of public art in Madrid, Spain. Located in front of the main gate of the Prado Museum, it is dedicated to Diego de Velázquez.
The statue was an idea of the Círculo de Bellas Artes. The statue was cast at Masriera & Campins' foundry in Barcelona, using bronze gifted by the Spanish State. Modelled by Aniceto Marinas, the statue features a seated Velázquez, with his palette and brush at rest. The Velázquez's hand gesture imitates that of the painter's self-portrait in Las Meninas.
