Thoroughly examining 33 paintings by Sanchez Coello (1531/2-1588) and 18 canvases by other artists selected to illustrate the origins and legacy of his style, this scholarly catalogue documents the first major exhibition devoted to the Spanish Court painter, whose work (strongly influenced by Mor and Titian) is regarded as central to traditions of formal portraiture in Spain. Included are commentaries on and full-page reproductions of the featured paintings, detailed technical analyses of 13 canvases, and four essays discussing Sanchez Coello's career, his less-renowned religious paintings, the history and significance of court portraiture in Spain, and the fashions of the time of Philip II as reflected in court portraits.
