Benito Navarrete Prieto, professor of art history, Universidad de Alcalá Alonso Cano was a Spanish artist whose skills spanned multiple media, including drawing, painting, sculpture, and even architecture. His understanding of art was highly mediated by the knowledge he accumulated in his library. This lecture will discuss Cano as an intellectual artist who defended the liberal character of his art based on classical theories and who aspired to an aesthetic based on the triumph of beauty.
