Summary

This fourth volume of the ´Corpus of Spanish Drawings` is concerned with Valencian drawing of the seventeenth century. It sets the seventeenth-century Valencian School in its historical context, and summarizes its development, characteristic features and art-historical impact. Over 500 masterly drawings are catalogued and nearly as many illustrated in this book: they range from sketches for large religious compositions, landscapes, battles and genre scenes to a series of dynamic and powerful figure studies, among them the contents of the recently discovered Lassala sketch-book, possibly the work of Miguel March, son of Esteban March.
