Spanish Paintings of the Fifteenth through Nineteenth Centuries
Jonathan Brown & Richard G. Mann
The National Gallery's collection of Spanish paintings is distinguished by seven of El Greco's works from every period of his activity in Italy and Spain; Diego Velázquez' work on an intimate scale; Bartolomé Esteban Murillo's images addressing both the sacred and profane; and seven of Francisco de Goya's incisive portraits of Spain's aristocratic and intellectual society. Also included are two panels by the Master of the Catholic Kings, which represent Hispano-Flemish painting of the late fifteenth century at its best.
