Excerpt from The School of Madrid
Senor de Beruete y Moret carries the history of Spanish painting since Velazquez down to the time of its decline under the alien inﬂuence of the Italian Luca di Giordano, content to leave it with a bare reminder of the later striking personality, Francisco Goya, who was again to raise it from a period of poverty to one of rare distinction. In this tale of Spanish painting we are introduced, besides, to one of the two forms in which, as the author says, Spanish national life finds most typical expression, and the one more readily com prehensible, in its universal medium, to the foreign student, since the other, which is drama, is veiled by difference of language.
Thus this book, which coincides with the recent reawakening of interest in the art of the seventeenth century, is certain of cordial welcome, alike for the breadth and originality of the author's views and the profundity of his learning.
