    From the dawn of mankind's artistic achievement in the cave paintings of Altamira, to Picasso's groundbreaking Les Demoiselles d'Avignon and beyond, the arts in Spain tangibly illustrate the unique course of Spanish history. In this wide-ranging critical overview, John F. Moffitt concentrates on paradigms of painting, sculpture, the decorative arts, and architecture, situating them within their historical context. Professor Moffitt first traces Iberian and Roman beginnings and examines the Islamic and Christian foundations of Cordoba and the Escorial. He discusses the masterworks of El Greco, Zurbaran, Velazquez, and Goya, the innovations of Picasso, Dali, and Mira, and the advent of postmodernism in Spain. Authoritative and ambitious, the book encompasses the enormous breadth of the Spanish artistic panorama, revealing how many of its most characteristic modern traits were present in earliest times.

    This unprecedented volume considers the profound and enduring impact of Spain's history, art, and culture on one of the greatest designers of the 20th century, the legendary Cristobal Balenciaga. Hailed as 'fashion's Picasso' by Cecil Beaton, Balenciaga created a revolutionary oeuvre that transformed the way women dressed. From the opening of his Paris fashion house in 1917 until his retirement in 1968. his visionary, ever-evolving designs and impeccable tailoring seduced generations of the most fashionable women in the world. This book traces the deep influence of the Spanish masters - from Zurbarian, Velazquez, and Goya to Picasso and Miro - on the protean Balenciaga’s designs. Spain’s religious dress and ceremony, its lavish royal court, the tradition of flamenco dance, the drama of the bullfight, and the distinctive costumes of the country's diverse regions. Featuring never-before-published photographs by renowned artists such as Richard Avedon and Irving Penn as well as remarkable documentary images from the archives of the house of Balenciaga, this illuminating and lavishly illustrated volume is a bottom line, must have addition to a fashion library. Notes, Bibliography, Catalogue of the Exhibition, Index. Illus. 256p.
