Synopsis
The documentary EL SIGLO DE ORO – The Golden Age of Spanish Art tells the fascinating story of Spanish art during its most important and successful era. In the 17th century, Spanish painting and sculpture are flourishing. The work of artists like El Greco, Velázquez, Zurbarán and Murillo is characterised by an unprecedented realism and a fine eye for psychological nuances. At the same time, art is closely intertwined with the Spanish court and the church. How was it used as a means of propaganda by the Spanish Empire in its struggle for world supremacy?
The film immerses the viewer into this intriguing world that remains one of the most important chapters in European cultural history travelling to the art hubs of that time – Sevilla, Madrid, Toledo, Guadalupe and Valladolid.
