LA PINTURA DE HISTORIA DEL SIGLO XIX EN ESPANA (History Painting of the 19th Century in Spain). Ed. by Jose Luis Diez. Museo Espanol de Arte Contemporaneo, Madrid, 1992. Organized and published by Museo del Prado, Madrid. 496 pp. with 351 ills. (271 col.). 29 x 25 cm. LC 94-122240 ISBN 8460440192 In Spanish.
Featuring excellent color reproductions and numerous detail views of 52 large-scale canvases drawn chiefly from the Prado's holdings, this substantial catalogue provides a scholarly examination of the development of 19th-century Spanish history painting from the Neo-Classicism of Juan Antonio Ribera (1779-1860) to the expressive decorative realism of Francisco Pradilla (1848-1921). Lengthy individual analyses of the exhibited works supplement five essays discussing traditions of history painting in Spain from the Renaissance through the 1700s, the historical themes explored by Spanish artists of the 19th century, the stylistic evolution of the genre over the period, and the appropriation of images from history paintings by 20th-century graphic artists and filmmakers.
