    Synopsis: Charles Le Brun is the painter of Versailles who, for thirty years, worked on the palace's decoration, conceived by Louis XIV. The magnificence of the architecture is matched by the great historical paintings extolling the glories of Louis XIV. Le Brun did not limit himself to identifying the King as a mythological figure, as had been the custom until then. He combined historical elements with other contemporary items, creating an effect of cinematographic reality. This publication exceptionally contains drafts and preparatory sketches for the paintings on the Ambassadors' Staircase and in the Hall of Mirrors.

    Synopsis: Sorolla was a painter passionate about the movements of light and the breadth of the range of colours, representing the transformations of the landscape throughout the day and who, at the last stage of his work, freed himself from subject matter to tackle abstraction and pure creation. This publication shows a relatively unknown aspect of his work: the drawings he did in the open air and which sometimes ended up inspiring his paintings.

    Synopsis: Guía para conocer la obra producida por Mariano Fortuny entre 1870 y 1872, etapa en la que residió en Granada. La ciudad de la Alhambra supuso un punto de inflexión en su obra, el cual se encontraba atrapado en la eterna disyuntiva de escoger entre las necesidades comerciales o las puramente creativas, que sin duda satisfacían en mayor grado sus aspiraciones personales. Fue en esta ciudad donde Fortuny supo encontrar el lugar perfecto para redefinir su obra y dar rienda suelta a su creatividad.
