"Francisco de Zurbar n (1598-1664) was one of the great Spanish painters of the Baroque period. Today, his idiosyncratic, very Catholic imagery fascinates us even as it has become alien and, in essence, inaccessible. In its aesthetic-religious dimension, his work-- indebted to the Spanish mysticism of the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries--possesses a unique depth and rigor. Christ on the cross, dead martyrs and saints in reverie, meditating monks, the superiors of monastic orders that today have almost ceased to exist: In his mostly dark paintings, they are depicted so realistically, one feels one could reach out and touch them. And yet they also seem to be emissaries from another world. For Zurbar n, a contemporary of Vel zquez and Murillo, painting and religious meditation were complementary aspects of spiritual observance. Perhaps it is precisely this quality in his art that makes his paintings the center of our interest today." -- Publisher's description
El Greco by Santiago Alcolea( Book )

6 editions published in 2007 in English and Spanish and held by 160 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Doménicos Theotokópoulos, better known as El Greco (1541-1621), gained his training as an artist in Crete, Venice and Rome, the three centers of art that he passed through. Yet even though he learned from the great Italian artists of the 16th century, his arrogance was such that he went so far so to say that Michelangelo was a good man but he did not know how to paint, remarking that the Last Judgment could be painted over and that he could be commissioned to re-do it with honesty and decency and no less quality in the painting. His contemporaries found him a difficult personality. In 1577, he moved to Spain and made his home in Toledo. In this lavishly illustrated volume, Professor Santiago Alcolea Gil describes the most notable aspects of the life and work of this artist, one of the true masters in European pictorial art."--Publisher's website

Velázquez by Santiago Alcolea( Book )

6 editions published in 2007 in English and Spanish and held by 122 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Like his Dutch contemporary Vermeer, Diego Velázquez (1599-1660) had little reputation outside of his native land until the nineteenth century, when the Spanish royal painting collections became state property and were installed in the Prado Museum in Madrid. The year was in 1819, and several private and official collections in London and Paris also benefited. Unlike Vermeer, however, Velázquez had a fairly large oeuvre waiting to be rediscovered--and rediscovered it was, with great rapidity and enthusiasm. Goya and Manet are almost inconceivable without the precedent of Velázquez's portraiture, and in fact Manet even called the Spaniard "the painter of painters." His impact on French Impressionism was colossal. And two of the twentieth century's most famous artists painted direct homages: Picasso made a version of "Las Meninas" in 1957; and Francis Bacon's "screaming popes" are based on Velázquez's 1650 portrait of Pope Innocent X. From Goya until today, Velázquez's work has been recognized not only as the essential forerunner to Modern painting, but also as the greatest exponent of seventeenth-century Spanish art."--Publisher's website
