Book News Annotation:

Produced to accompany an exhibition held at the Seattle Art Museum in 2004 and the Norton Museum of Art in West Palm Beach, Florida in 2005, this oversized catalogue (it's 10.25x12.5") presents eight lengthy essays illustrated with color plates of works from the exhibition and related materials. The essay topics are on Spanish art and science, the empire and its image, the image of the king, and natural history and the Enlightenment. The essays and the exhibition focus on the enormous and varied impact of the discovery, exploration, and establishment of Spanish rule in the new world. The exhibition was co- sponsored by the Seattle Art Museum and the Patrimonio Nacional in Madrid, Spain. The contributors are currators in both museums, and specialists in Spain and the US.
