This book is a collection of fourteen essays on the Dialogues on Painting, published by the Florentine-born Spanish painter and art theorist Vicente Carducho (1568–1638) in 1633. This was the first treatise in Spanish on the art of painting, written as part of a campaign led by Carducho in collaboration with other prominent painters working in Madrid, to raise the status of the artist from artisan to liberal artist. The treatise provides an overview of the melding of Italian Renaissance art theory and Madrilenian practice in the baroque era. It also offers first-hand insight into collecting in Madrid during this crucial period in the rapid expansion of the capital city. The present collection of essays by art historians and hispanists from the UK, Spain, Germany and the US examines each of the dialogues in detail, furnishing an account of Carducho’s campaign to establish a painting academy and to professionalise the office of the painter; detailing the publication history of the treatise and the interrelationship between painting and poetry; and it cites Carducho’s own painting in relation to the Italian and Spanish traditions within which he operated.

Studies in Visual Culture provides a forum for ground-breaking enquiry into
visual-cultural production in its social, historical and cultural contexts. The
series places particular emphasis on the exchanges, transactions and
displacements that link Europe to wider global contexts across the visual-cultural
feld. The series seeks to promote critical engagement with visual media as
ideological and cultural as well as aesthetic constructs, and foregrounds the
relationship of visual cultures to other felds and discourses, including cultural
history, literary production and criticism, philosophy, gender and sexuality
research, journalism and media studies, migration and mobility studies, social
sciences, and politics. The Studies in Visual Culture series thus focuses on
exploring synergies and key debates between disciplines, concepts and
theoretical approaches, and ofers an exciting new arena for testing and
extending disciplinary, theoretical and conceptual boundaries.

This project frst started to take shape at a colloquium on Vicente Carducho
and Diálogos de la Pintura organised by the editors of this volume at
the Taylor Institution Library, Oxford on 1–2 April 2011. The editors would like
to thank those in attendance for their insightful comments and questions,
which helped inform many of the essays that follow. We would also like
to express our gratitude to the reader for University of Wales Press, whose
detailed feedback on our original submission proved invaluable in the prepar -
ation of the fnal manuscript, and to everyone with whom we have worked
at UWP for guidance throughout the process of producing this volume.
Chapters II, V, VI, IX and XII were originally written in Spanish and have been
translated by the editors. We owe thanks to Jeremy Lawrance (especially
in Chapter I) and Rich Rabone for additional translation, and further thanks
to the former for compiling Appendices I, II and III, which complement not
only his own chapter but the volume as a whole. Chapter XI was frst published
under the title ‘Disegno to Dibujo: Vicente Carducho and the Eloquence of
Drawing’ in Master Drawings, 53.3 (2015): 295–312, and the editorial board
are to be thanked for the permission to reproduce it here.F inally, we would
like to acknowledge important fnancial contributions made to both the
aforementioned colloquium and the present volume by the Faculty of Arts
and the School of Cultures, Languages and Area Studies at the University of
Nottingham, the Sub-Faculty of Spanish at the University of Oxford and
Hertford College, Oxford.
We have used the first edition of Diálogos de la Pintura (1633) for
all quotations from Carducho’s treatise, following original spelling and
punctuation for this and other early modern sources throughout.
