Elizabeth Borton De Trevino ´ 5 Summary Story MOBI #221 fellow painters Rubens and Murillo the climate and customs of Spanish court life When Velázuez discovers that he and Juan share a love for the art which is his very life the painter proves his friendship in the most incredible fashion for in those days it was forbidden by law for slaves to learn or practice the arts Through the hardships of voyages to Italy through the illnesses of Velázuez Juan de Pareja loyally serves until the death of the painter in I Juan de Pareja is the winner of the Newbery Medal Latino Interest. This book is a little under the radar but really deserves to be one of those titles that everyone had to read in grade school or junior high It is a fairly easy read that belies the depth of insight it contains; a combination that reminds me of titles like The Velveteen Rabbit or To Kill a Mockingbird It is a nice piece of historical fiction so if you're a junior high English or Social Studies teacher I would highly recommend it It was a tad young for my ninth graders but they enjoyed it nevertheless and we added to the learning experience by taking them to the art museum where they were able to see some of Velazuez's works firsthand although none by de Pareja unfortunately
