A Dwarf Holding a Tome on His Lap is a oil painting by the Spanish painter Diego Velazquez. It was painted in 1645. A particularly impressive portrait is Velázquez's painting of the dwarf Don Diego de Acedo, alias El Primo (The Cousin), probably commissioned by the court and executed at Fraga in about 1644. (The dwarf was called El Primo because he boasted of being the relative of Velázquez.) This painting (106 x 83 cm) is currently housed in the Museo del Prado, Madrid.
