This book covers 250 years of painting in Spain starting with works created at the splendid sixteenth-century court of Philip II to those produced at the Hapsburg and Bourbon courts of Madrid, and in the cities of Seville, Valencia, and Toledo. The result was an art of extraordinary stature and international scope. With the aid of 116 illustrations, most in color, Janis Tomlinson traces the myriad influences reflected in the paintings of generations of artists from Sofonisba Anguissola, El Greco, Velásquez, and Zubarán to the unique accomplishment of Francisco Goya.

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. For those involved in art education or simply interested in art history.About the Author:
