    Published to accompany an exhibition held at the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston and the Nasher Museum of Art at Duke U., this oversized catalog (9.25x12") presents substantial essays on religion, politics, art, and literature in Philip III's Spain. The catalogue of paintings is organized by theme, with sections on late El Greco, portraiture, religious institutions and private patrons, apostle's portraits, Saint Francis, and the Immaculate Conception, among other topics. These sections contain a continuous narrative essay on each theme that incorporates discussion of the paintings (rather than individual entries). The result is a rich resource on a society governed by institutions that were intensely religious and its art. Annotation ©2008 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)

    "In this lucid, witty book, the eminent art historian Jonathan Brown examines links between his personal life and his study of Hispanic art of the Golden Age. His adventures are offered as a model for understanding how art history is shaped by life experiences, and he describes the influence of his parents, Jean and Leonard Brown, noted collectors of documentation of 20th-century avant-garde movements.His turn to research on the Golden Age of Spanish art was motivated by a year in Madrid, 1958-59. Art history in Spain was modeled on the policies of the Franco regime, and Brown sought to find different ways to interpret Spanish painting. His approach is demonstrated by fresh insight into painters, including Velâazquez. A new interpretation of Las Meninas is proposed and the perils of attribution are examined. Later in his career, Brown began to study the transformation of Spanish art in the Americas. The book originated as a series of six lectures delivered at the Museo Nacional del Prado in 2012"--
