FURTHER AFIELD | Why El Greco to Goya?

October 11 2022 @ 12:00 pm - 12:45 pm CDT

Free to Paid

Edward Payne, assistant professor in art history at Aarhus University, DenmarkFurther Afield virtual talks provides broader social, political, economic, and historical context for works of art at the museum. This fall Further Afield focuses on the current scholarship of the museum’s previous
curatorial fellows.

Does Spanish art history begin with El Greco and end with Goya? A timeless catchphrase, “El Greco to Goya” is also a seductive trap. The biographical construction of Spanish art can be traced back to Antonio Palomino, nicknamed the “Spanish Vasari” for his Lives of the Eminent Spanish Painters and Sculptors (1724). This talk will question the extent to which the “El Greco to Goya” survey is a practical or problematic model for narrating the history of the visual arts in the Spanish world. What elements have been erased from this story, and what alternative “itineraries” might be proposed?
