Frothingham, Alice Wilson.

Tile Panels of Spain (1500‑1650).

1969. 248p. 178 illus., 6 col. pl.    Cloth $49.00

        Tile Panels of Spain deals with pictorial compositions and Renaissance patterns painted in glaze colors on title panels used as wainscots, altarpieces, and other architectural ornamentation. The firt book in English devoted entirely to Spanish tiles, it illustrates profusely the panels originating mainly at Sevilla and Talavera de la Reina and associates the recorded names of tilemasters with their works.
        Many panels are illustrated and discussed here for the first time.
        The author shows how Renaissance decoration and the Italian method of glaze painting, first introduced at Sevilla byFrancisco Niculoso "the Pisan," captivated the Spaniards and flourished belatedly until the mid-seventeenth century.
        The subject of Flemish influences brought to Spain by artists from Antwerp is also discussed. Of prime importance is the account of Spanish tilemasters' work, both for its artistic quality and the almost unbelievable quantities supplied for buildings great and small in Andalucía, Stailla, and the New World.
