Booknews
An exploration of 16th and 17th century Spanish paintings depicting the mystical visions of such saints as St. Teresa de Avila, St. Francis, and St. Bernard. The intriguing conceit of these paintings is the artists' attempts to represent the invisible, the mysterious, and the spiritual, ultimately allowing the viewer to join the saint in the represented vision. Stoichita traces the development of Murillo, El Greco, Velazquez, and Zurbaran in their views, techniques, philosophies, and ideas. Includes photographs, both black and white and color. Annotation c.
