Courtly portraiture, the bold Mannerist El Greco, the golden age of painting under Philip III (1598-1621), Francisco Ribalta (1565-1628) in Valencia, Rubens and The Hunting Lodge, José de Ribera, the master of Spanish Baroque Diego Velázquez, the painter of austerity Francisco de Zurbarán and Alonso Cano (1601-1667) in Grenada are celebrated in this amazing colour virtual art gallery. Often there are close up details blown up to a whole page to appreciate the minutia and detail in for example de Miranda's Countess of Monterrey with her plumed head dress and tightly laced bodice, frills and enormous hooped skirt. There are visions of death and St. John by El Greco, mythological works and scenes from medieval life like The Poultry Vendor and Bodegón. Portraits of kings and nobility, peasants and beggar boys, one with a clubbed foot, religious themes, a View of Zaragoza with its bridge in ruins, battlefields and military men, allegories and angels. From the medieval works of Romanesque and Gothic art to the golden age of the Baroque, from the famous Beatus Apocalypses to Diego Velázquez and Francisco de Zurbarán, Spanish painting offers a unique abundance of artistic themes and styles. Intimately connected with the needs and power displays of the Habsburg dynasty and the Church, Spanish art developed an idiom as varied as it was distinctive. Covers over 500 works in rich quality colour illus. 540 pages, 28.2 x 31cm (11½" x 12½"). Multi language edition, new from Könemann.
