El Greco, Ribera, Velázquez, Murillo - these are but a few of the great sixteenth and seventeenth century artists of Spain's golden age of painting. In Painting in Spain, 1500-1700, an authoritative and handsome book, eminent Spanish art scholar Jonathan Brown surveys the development of painting in Spain during this fascinating period.

Focusing on the interaction between art and the socioeconomic and political conditions that prevailed in Spain's golden age, Painting in Spain, 1500-1700 offers information about religious beliefs, social attitudes, the activities of patrons and collectors, and how these were absorbed and interpreted by painters.

Painting in Spain, 1500-1700 sets the history of Spanish paintings within a European context and explores Spain’s contact with artistic centres in Italy and the Netherlands. Painting in Spain, 1500-1700 discusses not only Spanish artists but also such non-Spanish painters as Titian, Ruben, and Luca Giordano, who either worked in Spain or influenced other artists there.

Painting in Spain, 1500-1700 also examines the collections of foreign paintings that Spanish noblemen and prelates assembled and how these collections affected the production of art and the social status of the Spanish artist. In this up-to-date and innovative analysis of two hundred years of Spanish painting, Brown describes a country that brilliantly transformed the artistic impulses it received from abroad to fit the needs of its own society.
