维拉兹克斯把宫廷小丑的特征带给了西班牙国王菲利普二世巴勃罗·德·瓦尔拉多利德,并将其转载到希腊哲学家德谟克利特的这幅想象中的肖像上。他指着一个地球仪,穿着17世纪的服饰。这位愤世嫉俗的哲学家在这里被描绘成面带苦笑的样子。

Vélazquez took the features of the court jester to King Philip II of Spain, Pablo de Valladolid, and transposed them onto this imaginary portrait of the Greek philosopher Democritus. He is pointing to a globe and is dressed in 17th Century finery. The cynical philosopher is depicted here with a wry smile on his face.
