Remembering Sepharad : Jewish culture in Medieval Spain : Washington National Cathedral, May 9-June 8, 2003 by Isidro Gonzalo Bango Torviso( Book )

7 editions published in 2003 in English and Spanish and held by 308 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Written to accompany an exhibition held at the Washington National Cathedral in 2003 (and in a more extensive version in Toledo, Spain previously), this catalogue provides a broad introduction to the lives of Jews in medieval Spain ("Sepharad" is the Hebrew word for Spain). Among the topics are aspects of daily life; the role of Jews in the arts and sciences; the political realities of life for Jews, Muslims, and Christians; a history of the Church's anti-Jewish policies, which result in the expulsion of the Jews in 1492; and the role of the Spanish Inquisition. All the chapters are well illustrated with good quality color plates. Distributed in North America by the U. of Washington Press for the State Corporation for Spanish Cultural Action Abroad
The art of power : royal armor and portraits from Imperial Spain by Alvaro Soler del Campo( Book )

4 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 174 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Royal Armory in Madrid, assembled at a time when the Spanish Crown was at the height of its international power, is the oldest and one of the finest and largest armories in the world, imbued with great historical, artistic, and symbolic significance. Armor drawn from the unsurpassed holdings of the Spanish Royal Armory is shown in this exhibition alongside portraits of rulers dressed in the same armor, painted by such masters as Peter Paul Rubens, Anthony van Dyck, Diego Velázquez, and Alonso Sánchez Coello. Several large and magnificent tapestries from the royal collection also depict the armor in use. Together, some 75 works illustrate the use of luxurious armor in projecting an image of royal power in Imperial Spain. The exhibition includes several full suits of armor, helmets, shields, and equestrian armor--worn in battle but more often in Renaissance parades, pageants, and jousting tournaments. The works of art on view date from the reigns of the Holy Roman Emperors Maximilian I of Austria (1508-1519) and Emperor Charles V (1519-1558), to those of his successors, King Philip II (1556-1598), King Philip III (1598-1621), and King Philip IV (1621-1665). This is the first time that the armor has been exhibited together with the portraits in which it is depicted

3 editions published in 2008 in Spanish and held by 85 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The sixties provided a special new way of seeing books, which were recognised as an artistic medium of incomparable effectiveness for reaching the most recondite places, and gaining independence from the traditional channels of distribution of works of art. This project affords an overview of the books and magazines by Spanish artists produced from the 60s to the boom we are currently beholding, thus making visible the wealth of a largely unknown cultural heritage." "The examples and indexes it contains comprise a useful tool for readers who wish to venture to discover and enjoy these works of art, which often lie on the shelves of any bookshop and are within everyone's reach."--BOOK JACKET

Las conferencias permiten establecer una mirada comparativa, a partir de la circulación de ideas, gustos e intereses, por las cortes de la Monarquía española bajo Felipe IV y Carlos II, así como por su gran corte hermana de Viena, fundamentalmente con el emperador Leopoldo I, en las que la experiencia italiana y, en concreto, la centralidad de la corte pontificia que erigió a Roma en capital europea de las artes, siguieron siendo el modelo incuestionable de una madurez artística que, por lo que a España se refiere, coronarían al acabar el siglo y la dinastía las trayectorias de pintores como Claudio Coello y Luca Giordano
