Painting and the Turn to Cultural Modernity in Spain: The Time of Eugenio Lucas Velázquez

AJ Ginger

Research output: Book/ReportAuthored book

Abstract

Cultural modernity has habitually been defined as a focus on the means of representation themselves. For the first time, this book considers how art took such a turn in Spain in the 1850s and 1860s, with particular attention to the painter Eugenio Lucas Velázquez and his use of pastiche. Lucas refuses any unique artistic identity or uniquely modern manner, splitting his identity into multiple voices. This highly interdisciplinary book is concerned with the interplay between Lucas and his dynamic, plural context.
