The Edwardians and the Making of a Modern Spanish Obsession

Liverpool University Press

Considers how the flow of aesthetic objects, capital and knowledge between Britain and Spain was conditioned by the unequal balance of power between Britain and Spain. Traces the history of exhibiting Spanish art and the factors shaping British taste in Spanish artists, including the professionalization of knowledge about Spain and Spanish arts. Explores the dark side of cultural flows and the effects of Spanish attempts to take back control, including the controversial trade in Spanish artworks, and the exploitative fraud known as the ‘Spanish swindle’.

Keywords:   Art, Artisanship, Museums, Galleries, Charity Bazaar, Spanish Swindle
