'Velázquez: Master and Masterpieces'

'Velázquez: Master and Masterpieces'

A lecture by Jonathan Brown, professor of Fine Arts at the Institute of Fine Arts of New York University.

Internationally renowned Spanish art scholar Jonathan Brown has paved the way for generations of art historians in the United States and abroad.

His numerous publications and exhibitions have revolutionized Hispanic studies by focusing on a contextual approach to art history that, as he explained, “seeks to place a work of art in the historical-ideological frame of reference in which it was created.”

Professor Brown has received numerous honors in and outside the U.S., and he was appointed the 2012 director of the prestigious Cátedra at the Museo Nacional del Prado, where he organized a series of seminars devoted to the history and historiography of Golden Age Spanish painting.
