Providing a panoramic overview of modernist trends in turn-of-the-century art in Spain that illuminates developments in both cosmopolitan and provincial centers throughout the country, this substantial catalogue features fine reproductions and critical analyses of 171 paintings arranged in geographical groupings, including Symbolist-influenced works, vibrant realist compositions, and expressive, naturalistic landscapes and figure studies by such prominent painters as Joaquin Sorolla, Jose Gutierrez Solana, Joaquim Sunyer, Dario de Regoyos, Joaquim Mir and Ignacio Zuloaga and by dozens of lesser-known figures. Augmented by biographical profiles of the featured artists, eighteen essays include descriptions of the cultural and political milieux of late 19th-century Spain and individual examinations of the international modernist and distinctly Spanish themes and styles explored by early 20th-century painters in Castile, Catalonia, Valencia, Andalusia and ten other regions of the country.
