Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

A period of unparalleled wealth and prestige, Spains Golden Age (1492–1659) was one of conquest, Catholicism, and a spectacular cultural explosion that gave rise to some of the countrys most treasured masterpieces.

 

Following Columbuss discovery of the New World in 1492, Spain entered an era of unprecedented power and influence as explorers and conquistadors plundered the riches of the Indies. For nearly 200 years, the combination of New World gold and fervent Christianity had a profound effect on art, as wealthy patrons commissioned both lavish portraits and inspirational works. Featuring José de Riberas Immaculate Conception, El Grecos Toledo, and Diego Velázquezs Las Meninas, renowned art historian Joan Suredas comprehensive volume is the first book to explore Golden Age painting alongside sculpture and architecture to give a complete portrait of this opulent era.
