Arts in Spain by John F. Moffitt

Book Description

This text presents a representative anthology of examples of painting, architecture and sculpture to provide a critical overview of Spain. From Iberian and Roman beginnings, the book traces the development of the arts in Spain, examining the magnificent Islamic and Christian foundations at Cordoba and the Escorial, the idiosyncratic masterworks of El Greco, the Golden Age of Zurbaran and Velazquez, the art of Goya, and the innovative works of Picasso, Dali and Miro, and revealing that many of the most characteristic Spanish artistic currents had their origins at the dawn of history.

Reviews

UK Kirkus Review » From prehistory to postmodernism, the arts in Spain have occupied a powerful and influential role in Western art. In this wide-ranging overview, Moffitt traces the history of painting, sculpture, the decorative arts and architecture. He investigates Iberian and Roman beginnings and examines the splendour of the Islamic and Christian foundations at Cordoba and the Escorial, before concentrating on the masterworks of El Greco, the Golden Age of Zurbaran and Velazquez, and the work of Goya. After discussing the brilliant innovations of Picasso, Dali and Miro, he considers the most recent developments in Spanish art, revealing that many of its most characteristic modern traits have their inception in earliest times.
