The Politics Of Painting: Velázquez And Diplomacy In The Court Of Philip Iv, Chad M. Gasta Oct 2006

The Politics Of Painting: Velázquez And Diplomacy In The Court Of Philip Iv, Chad M. Gasta

World Languages and Cultures Publications

The influence of Diego Velázquez on the history of art cannot be overstated, but studies to date have not taken note of his impact on Spanish politics during the mid-seventeenth century. In short, Velázquez was as much a politician as an artist, his position in the Spanish court required both responsibilities. In the years 1659-1660 the painter played an especially remarkable role in the affairs of state when he was called upon to make court preparations for the Paz de los Pirineos, a peace accord ending nearly thirty years of war between the two reigning European superpowers, France and Spain ...

Inquiry: The University of Arkansas Undergraduate Research Journal

Throughout the ancient Greek world, temples marked the landscape as a sign of Greek civilization.

Lucas Van Leyden's Dance Around The Golden Calf: The Northern Triptych In The Age Of The Reformation, Jennifer R. Pease Jan 2006

Lucas Van Leyden's Dance Around The Golden Calf: The Northern Triptych In The Age Of The Reformation, Jennifer R. Pease

Inquiry: The University of Arkansas Undergraduate Research Journal

This paper focuses on Lucas van Leyden's 1530 triptych Dance Around the Golden Calf. It is shown through a stylistic and iconographic analysis of the painting that it is a piece reflective of the tensions and upheaval prevalent during the Reformation-era society in which it was produced. This was a time when Northern European artists such as Lucas began an increase in secularism in their work, demonstrating the dawn of a new era in the church. Lucas effectively uses visual contradiction and psychological implication to respond artistically to the tumultuous age of the Reformation.
