On Art and Painting: Vicente Carducho and Baroque Spain

Jean Andrews (Editor/Coordinator), Jeremy Roe (Editor/Coordinator), Oliver Noble Wood (Editor/Coordinator)

Research output: Book/ReportBookpeer-review


Though he was one of the most commercially successful Spanish painters of the seventeenth century, Vincente Carducho emphasized piety and devotion to a higher power in his work and his writing. On Art and Painting features in-depth analyses by art historians and scholars of Hispanic studies on Carducho’s 1633 treatise, Dialogues on Painting. In the Dialogues, arranged as conversations between a master painter and his apprentice, Carducho outlines and systematizes the learning and techniques of Spanish painting. This book brings together international experts in the only volume on the work of Vicente Carducho in English.
