Artistic Trade between Spain and Its Viceroyalties, 1500–1800
Keynes Hall, King’s College, University of Cambridge, 22 June 2018

This is the first conference in the United Kingdom devoted to artistic trade between Spain and its viceroyalties. Referring to Cambridge’s Spanish and colonial art collections and with the indispensable support of the King’s College Nigel Glendinning studentship, this conference brings together scholars specialized in the art from the Spanish Viceroyalties. The speakers will trace the artworks from their production, their movement with the help of agents and their collection and display at their destination.
