Lecture no. 36 from the course: A History of European Art
Taught by Professor William Kloss | 29 min | Categories: The Great Courses Plus Online Music & Fine Art Courses
In this lecture, you look at four painters living and working in Spain in the "golden age" of Spanish art during the late 16th and 17th centuries. You examine the expressive distortions of form of El Greco, the powerful light-dark contrasts of Francisco de Zurbaran, the affecting painting of Murillo, and the brilliant illusionism of Velázquez.
