Conférence en ligne : « Charles I and the Art of Italy in Spain », Dr Susan Bracken (13 août 2020, 19h30)

The Society for the History of Collecting
Invites you to its Online Lecture

Charles I and the Art of Italy in Spain
Dr Susan Bracken
13 août 2020, 19h30

1623 was a significant year for the outstanding collection being formed by the future Charles I.  In January John and Tom Smith (aka Charles, Prince of Wales and George Villiers, Marquess of Buckingham) set off for Madrid, with the aim of securing the hand of the Infanta for the Prince. They spent six months in Spain, but the negotiations failed.  However, Charles’s experience of the art he saw, was given and acquired in Spain had a lasting influence on his taste, future patronage and purchases.  It has often been remarked that it was in Spain that he fell in love with Titian but less frequently noticed that this was also the moment at which the Prince began to acquire copies of masterpieces, the originals being unobtainable.  Ten years later he still desired some of those paintings and began a new artistic campaign in Madrid, perhaps inspired by Rubens’s visit to London in 1629.   This paper will offer some ideas about these less well-known aspects of the king’s collection.

Dr Susan Bracken‘s thesis was on ‘Collectors and Collecting in England c.1600-c.1650’. She lectures regularly at the Victoria & Albert Museum and is an Associate Lecturer at Birkbeck College.
