Collected Writings on Velazquez by Jonathan Brown

Book Description

In this stimulating book, a leading authority on the Spanish master Diego Velazquez discusses this enigmatic artist and explores the mysteries presented by his paintings. The essays collected here, written over the course of Jonathan Brown's distinguished career, include some which are published in English for the first time and one which has never before been published. Two themes unite them. The first concerns the changing relationship between Velazquez and his patron Philip IV, which provides a framework for Brown to interpret the painter's career. The centerpiece of this relationship is Velaquez's masterpiece, Las Meninas, and this painting is the subject of two essays. The second theme is the problem of attributions and the related issue of Velazquez's innovative technique. Since Velazquez was not a prolific painter, questions of authenticity become increasingly contentious. Brown considers this matter in its widest dimensions and participates in the debate about individual attributions.

Painting in Latin America, 1550-1820 by Jonathan Brown Painting in Latin America, 1550-1820, Hardback (January 2015)

Surveys the diverse styles, subjects and iconography of painting in Latin America between the 16th and 19th centuries. Comparing and contrasting the Viceroyalties of New Spain, with its centre in modern-day Mexico, and Peru, the authors explore the very different ways the two regions responded to the influence of the Europeans and their art.

In the Shadow of Velazquez by Jonathan Brown In the Shadow of Velazquez, Hardback (May 2014)

Based on a series of six lectures delivered at the Museo Nacional del Prado in 2012, the author examines links between his personal life and his study of Hispanic art of the Golden Age. His adventures are offered as a model for understanding how art history is shaped by life experiences.

Shepherds and Shepherding by Jonathan Brown Shepherds and Shepherding, Paperback (February 2013)

The old-time shepherd is an emblem of sturdiness, dependability and independence. How did he manage his charges and his own life? What skills and equipment did he use? How did sheep farming change in the nineteenth and twentieth centuries, and what effect did those changes have on the shepherd's work? This title deals with these questions.
