The English edition “Spain’s Golden Age. Painting and Sculpture in the Time of Velázquez” is also available. Price at the Kunsthalle € 35
The Spanish Siglo de Oro, or ‘Golden Age’, is one of the most fascinating chapters in the history of Western art. Just when the most powerful nation in 17th-century Europe was rapidly losing its hegemony and went into political decline, Spanish art experienced its greatest flourishing. Around one hundred masterpieces from international collections will be on display, including loans from Madrid’s Museo del Prado, the Museo Nacional de Escultura in Valladolid, the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York and the Louvre in Paris.
This exhibition with its accompanying catalogue, is the first comprehensive presentation of the painting and sculpture of the period from approximately 1590 to 1700 to be shown outside Spain itself.
With essays by among others Henrik Karge, Karin Hellwig, Roberto Contini and María López-Fanjul y Díez del Corral.
Overall editorial and organisation: María López-Fanjul y Díez del Corral. Edited by Michael Eissenhauer, Bernd Wolfgang Lindemann and Roger Diederen, assisted by Catalina Heroven, Nerina Santorius and Sven Jakstat.
