Spanish still life from Velázquez to Goya by William B Jordan( Book )

22 editions published in 1995 in English and Undetermined and held by 541 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

There follows a chronological overview of the development of still-life painting in Spain, beginning with Sanchez Cotan, a painter turned monk from Toledo, whose stark and extraordinary representations of fruit and vegetables carefully displayed in window frames are among the earliest European still lifes, and Velazquez, whose scenes of everyday life include prominent still-life elements. The authors trace the development of still life in the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries through Juan van der Hamen's exquisite 'courtly' still lifes of precious glassware and candied fruit, the Vanitas paintings of Pereda and Valdes Leal, the works of Velazquez's Sevillian contemporaries, Francisco de Zurbaran and his son Juan, and the flower pictures of Juan de Arellano. They consider works by Melendez - characterised by a thrilling verisimilitude and a heightened pictorial intensity and richness - and lesser-known artists such as Paret and Romero, and, finally, still-life paintings by Goya whose disturbing simplicity and directness recall some of his more sinister works and suggest a new departure for the genre. The authors describe the character of each artist's oeuvre, their relationship with other artists, interpret particular pictures, describing the circumstances of the commission, and give biographical information. Full colour plates illustrate the exhibited works, accompanied by informative catalogue entries

Murillo : scenes of childhood by Xanthe Brooke( Book )

15 editions published in 2001 in English and Undetermined and held by 310 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Here, for the first time Murillo's pictures of childhood are collected together, demonstrating how the artist's own experiences as a member of the Brotherhood of Charity, which distributed bread to the starving of Seville, invested his paintings of street children with first-hand knowledge of their lives and genuine compassion for their plight. The Catholic Church promoted the notion that the rich needed the poor in order to be able to perform acts of charity for them and thus attain grace. The crop failures of the 1670s and the resultant famine made the middle and upper classes of the city more conscious than ever of its vast population of the dispossessed. Murillo's paintings often feature apparently well-nourished though grubby children relishing fruits and tarts: part of his artistic mission was to encourage acts of charity towards the poor, and the sympathy and affection that his paintings are intended to provoke in the viewer are often designed to assist this aim."--Jacket
