Overview

This scholarly catalogue of the collection of post-medieval Spanish sculpture at the Victoria and Albert Museum also acts as a thorough and wide-ranging introduction to the subject - one of the few such studies to appear in English. It is illustrated throughout, with much in colour. The collection comprises a number of outstanding pieces from the sixteenth, seventeenth and eighteenth centuries, many of which were previously unpublished. A number of major artists are represented, such as the sixteenth-century sculptors Alonso Berruguete and Juan de Juni, and in the seventeenth-century Jose Risueno, Jose de Mora and Luisa Roldan. The wide range of materials, including painted and gilded wood, terracotta, alabaster, marble, lead and jet illustrates the great variety of techniques used, and the workshop practices governing the making of sculpture in Spain. Each object has its own individual entry, while the introductory essays discuss more general issues, such as the formation of the collection of Spanish sculpture in the Museum, the idea of reproduction in sculpture, and the techniques employed.
