About this Resource

This database, originally created for The Frick Collection’s 1993-1996 four volume print publication of the same title, provides essential bibliographic information on more than 5,000 Spanish artists, including comprehensive lists of alternate forms of artist surnames. It has been widely acclaimed not only as a valuable reference tool but also as a thorough review of scholarly opinion regarding the artistic identities of numerous anonymous masters.
