In this engaging book, which originated in a series of lectures given at Museo Nacional del Prado, art historian Jonathan Brown reveals the links between events in his personal life and his decision to study Hispanic art of the Golden Age. His adventures are offered as a model for understanding how art history is constructed by unrecognized life experiences. Among discussions of artists including Ribera and El Greco, Brown presents a new interpretation of Velazquez's Las Meninas.
