From El Greco to Goya: Painting in Spain, 1561-1828
This well-illustrated book examines international painting in Spain — in historical context from the reign of the Habsburg King Philip II to the death of Goya. It goes beyond the existing studies of Golden Age painting to cover political, social, and religious contexts and art by non-Spanish masters working for the Habsburgs and Bourbons. Shows that painters working in Spain created an art of extraordinary stature — woven into the international world of Mannerism, the Baroque, and the Rococo. Goes beyond consideration of the well-known masters of Golden Age painting — e.g.'s Velazquez and Murillo — to consider the wide variety of painters, Spanish, Italian and Flemish, who influenced painting in Spain.
