Juan de Pareja

Pareja, Juan de (hwän dā pärāˈhä) [key], c.1610–70, Spanish religious and portrait painter, of Moorish origin. Pareja was the lifelong assistant of Velázquez, who painted his portrait (Metropolitan Mus.). His paintings show originality and an impetuous baroque temper. An outstanding work, the Calling of St. Matthew, may be seen in the Prado.
