10.30am - 12.30pm
Gail Turner will speak on The golden Age of Spanish Painting (1560 - 1660)
This is an introduction to the most important Spanish artists of the 16th and 17th centuries. We look at El Greco’s unique style of painting in Philip II’s Spain. Velázquez’ formal and informal portraits of members of Philip IV’s family and court are studied, as well as the white robed monks and tranquil saints of Zurbarán which contrast with the lively beggar boys and triumphant Virgins of Murillo.
