This lecture introduces us to the most important Spanish artists of the 16th and 17th centuries. We look at El Greco’s unique style of painting in Philip II’s Spain. We consider Velasquez’ formal and informal portraits of members of Philip IV’s family and court, as well as the white robed monks and tranquil saints of Zurbaran, which contrast with the lively beggar boys and triumphant Virgins of Murillo.
Gail Turner is an historian, art historian and painter, with a deep knowledge of and passion for Spanish art and culture. She has taught and lectured for the Arts Society for many years and lectures regularly for the V & A High Renaissance and Baroque course, Arts Pursuits and the Art Fund and many other organisations.
