Images and Ideas in Seventeenth-Century Spanish Painting by Jonathan Brown
Book DescriptionArt historians have often minimized the variety and complexity of seventeenth-century Spanish painting by concentrating on individual artists and their works and by stressing discovery of new information rather than interpretation. As a consequence, the painter emerges in isolation from the forces that shaped his work. Jonathan Brown offers another approach to the subject by relating important Spanish Baroque paintings and painters to their cultural milieu. A critical survey of the historiography of seventeenth-century Spanish painting introduces this two-part collection of essays. Part One provides the most detailed study to date of the artistic-literary academy of Francisco Pacheco, and Part Two contains original studies of four major painters and their works: Las Meninas of Velazquez, Zurbaran's decoration of the sacristy at Guadalupe, and the work by Murillo and Valdes Leal for the Brotherhood of Charity, Seville. The essays are unified by the author's intention to show how the artists interacted with and responded to the prevailing social, theological, and historical currents of the time. While this contextual approach is not uncommon in the study of European art, it is newly applied here to restore some of the diversity and substance that Spanish Baroque painting originally possessed.

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, 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, Paperback (February 2013)» View all books by Jonathan Brown
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.
