This elegantly designed, fully illustrated volume presents exquisite drawings by Spanish artists over the course of two centuries, featuring works by Ribera, Murillo and Goya from public and private collections in the New York area. Published to accompany a major exhibition at The Frick Collection in New York, this book presents the character, range and depth of the Spanish tradition of drawing from the early 17th to the early 19th centuries. These extraordinary works share a distinctiveness of technique, subject and mood that sets them apart from Italianate examples produced on the Peninsula in the same period – in other words, they represent a specifically ‘Spanish manner’.

Other books published by Scala for the Frick include: Building the Frick Collection, The Drawings of François Boucher, The Frick Collection: A Tour and The Frick Collection: A Handbook of Paintings
