Spanish Art in America

The book “Spanish Art in America” is a detailed monograph that reveals the magnificent Spanish artistic heritage that is preserved in the museums of the United States.

The United States of America is probably the country where Spanish art has been most valued outside of Spain. This affirmation is based on the unequaled number of Spanish works acquired in recent U.S. history, on their high quality and on their wide distribution by major museums.

This fascination with Spanish art is reflected in the specialization of some of these institutions and in the way in which these works conform the most important nucleus of some collections.
