Villaamil, View of Alcala de Guadaira
25 February, Romantic Spain, Day 2, 14.00-17.00
Following the exhibition La España romántica: David Roberts y Genaro Pérez Villaamil (Real Academia de Bellas Artes de San Fernando, CEEH, Oct. 2021- Jan. 2022), this two-day online event will further explore the prolific production of images of Spanish landscapes, monuments, and people by these two artists. Adopting a cross-cultural perspective, international academics and curators will situate their work within the wider context of national identity formation and a romanticised image that still colours our perceptions of Spain today. The speakers will present their papers in either Spanish or English (as indicated in the programme).
