Synopsis:

At the zenith of its empire, Spain was unrivaled in strength, wealth, and splendor. Philip II led a cultivated society made wealthy by a monopoly on New World trade, and Spain became a mecca for the finest artists of Europe. For more than 250 years, under the patronage of the Habsburg and Bourbon dynasties and the Catholic church, a glorious art of painting flourished: fiercely emotional, elegant, and urbane. Janis Tomlinson examines Rubens, Velazquez, Zurbaran, Murillo, and other illustrious painters in this context, weaving Spain into the worlds of Mannerism, the Baroque, and the Rococo and culminating in the accomplishments of Francisco Goya, last of the old masters and first of the moderns.

Description:

Includes bibliographical references (p. 172-173) and index.
