The Spanish portrait : from El Greco to Picasso( Book )

13 editions published in 2004 in English and Spanish and held by 340 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Spanish Portrait from El Greco to Picasso is an unprecedented survey of Spanish portrait painting and the development of this genre in Spanish art from the late fifteenth century to the early decades of the twentieth. Drawing on the collections of the Museo del Prado and other major international collections, it is the first book to cover more than 500 years of Spanish art from the viewpoint of the portrait. It features a selection of eighty-seven works and includes all the leading names in this field. This book is the first to present the stylistic evolution of the Spanish portrait, the differing social implications of the genre in Spain, the formulation by the various sitters of the self-image they wished to convey to posterity, and the various representational devices and strategies used by the artists of each period."--Jacket

The Spanish artist Diego Velazquez (1599-1660) was one of the most important painters of the Golden Age. Taking as its starting point a group of masterly children's portraits from the high-profile collection of the Kunsthistorisches Museum in Vienna, this opulent volume shows a representative cross-section of Velazquez's oeuvre, which also includes kitchen still lifes, religious subjects, mythological themes, and history paintings
Ribera by Javier Portús Pérez( Book )

22 editions published between 2010 and 2011 in 3 languages and held by 196 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Painter and printmaker José Ribera (also known as Jusepe de Ribera) was among the earliest and best-loved exponents of Caravaggio's "Tenebrism," in which stark drama is drawn from extreme contrasts of light and shadow. Despite the tendency to identify him with the Spanish school, Ribera was quick to leave his native land, moving to Italy around 1611, and living in Rome and Naples; however, he often signed his paintings "Jusepe de Ribera, Spaniard." In these early years, Ribera practiced the Caravaggian style, creating many Tenebrist masterpieces (such as his 1630 portrait of Archimedes) before embracing more diffuse effects of lighting. With Poligrafa's beautifully printed introduction to Ribera, Javier Portús, Chief Curator of Spanish Baroque Painting at the Prado, opens up a new approach to Ribera's career, focusing on the early Tenebrist years in Rome and Naples."--Publisher's description
