What Has Influenced You As An Artist? #2

The portrait of Infante Felipe Prospero by Velasquez, c.1660

A black and white reproduction of this painting was in a children's History Of Art book we had when I was young. It mesmerized and terrified me. One of the few backgrounds I've ever seen whose darkness had a consuming mental 'roar' to it.
