The Zurbarán Centre for Spanish and Latin American Art will host an online conference on 24 and 25 February relating to the recent exhibition La España romántica: David Roberts y Genaro Pérez Villaamil, Real Academia de Bellas Artes de San Fernando, 7 Oct. 2021-16 Jan. 2022.
The conference will further explore the prolific production of images of Spanish landscapes, monuments, and people by Roberts, Villaamil and their contemporaries. Adopting a cross-cultural perspective, six international scholars will situate their work within the wider context of national identity formation and a romanticised vision of Spain that still colours our perceptions of the country today.
Booking is essential, please see their website here for the conference programme and how to register. The speakers will present their papers in either Spanish or English (as indicated in the Programme).
