Abstract :
Acknowledges the Spanish exclusion of painting from creative liberal arts requiring intellect and inspiration. Questions whether this 'Madrid model' applies to the entire Iberian peninsuala during the Golden Age. Presents material from Cordoba to support the possibility that in a kingdom where unification took place as late as 1492 and where there continued to exist significant variations in language, laws, and customs among various Spanish peoples, differing perceptions of profession might coexist at a given moment. Factors accounting for a greater regard for painters in Cordoba include a cultural predisposition toward the arts promoting more positive public perceptions and attitudes, the presence of an enlightened individual to transform public opinion on the status of painting [Pablo de Céspedes], and concentration of artist-literati [including Antonio Mohedano de la Gutierra, Juan de Peñalosa, Antonio del Castillo y Saavedra, Juan de Alfaro y Gámez, and Acisclo Antonio Palomino de Castro y Velasco] capable of commanding respect and recognition for their chosen profession. ;
