              By exploring textual, visual, and material culture, this volume presents a range of new research into the experiences, agencies, and diverse political identities of Iberian women between the fifteenth and early-eighteenth century. Representing Women's Political Identity in the Ea...rly Modern Iberian World explores how the political identities of Iberian women were represented in various forms of visual culture including: religious paintings and portraiture; costume; and devotional and funerary sculpture. This study examines the transmission of Iberian culture and its concepts of identity to locations such as Peru, Goa, and Mexico, which provides a rich insight into Iberia's complex history and legacy. The collection of essays explores the lives of protagonists which vary from queens, members of the nobility, and painters and nuns, allowing for a more nuanced understanding of both the elite and non-elite woman's experience in Spain, Portugal, and their overseas realms during the early modern period. By addressing the significance of gender alongside the visual representation of political ideology and identity, this book is an invaluable source for students and researchers of early modern Iberia and the history of women.

              Gaudi

              Gaudi (Hardback, illustrated edition)

              Spanish architect and designer, Antoni Gaudi (1852-1926) was an important and influential figure in the history of contemporary Spanish art. His use of colour, application of a range of materials and the introduction of organic forms into his constructions were an innovation in t...he realm of architecture. In his journal, Gaudi freely expressed his own feelings on art, the colours used in architecture have to be intense, logical and fertile. His completed works (the Casa Batllo, 1905-1907 and the Casa Mila, 1905-1910) and his incomplete works (the restoration of the Poblet Monastery and the Retable d'Alella in Barcelona) illustrate the importance of this philosophy. His furniture designs were conceived with the same philosophy, as shown, for example, in his own office (1878) or the lamps in the Placa Reial in Barcelona. The Sagrada Familia (1882-1926) was a monumental project which eventually took over his life (it was still incomplete at the time of his death).
