New Haven and London: Yale University Press, 2014. Hardcover. VG (SIGNED BY AUTHOR on tp.). Burgundy cloth, gilt letters on spine, brown & color illus. dust jacket, 158 pp., color & BW illus. "In this engaging and witty book, the eminent art historian Jonathan Brown reveals the links between events in his personal life and his decision to study Hispanic art of the Golden Age. His adventures are offered as a model for understanding how art history is constructed by unrecognized life experiences. ... His approach is demonstrated by fresh insights into leading artists, among them Ribera, El Greco, and Velázquez. A new interpretation of Las Meninas is proposed in the book, and the perils of attribution are examined. At the mid-point of his career, Brown recognized that Spanish-American colonial painting needed to be inserted into the narrative, and for the last twenty years, through his teaching and writing, he has promoted the study of this fascinating extension of Hispanic art."
