Treasures of the Court / Philip II of Spain (r. 155698)

Covering 500 years, 38 patrons and several continents, this course is an examination of audacious acts of patronage and how they resulted in some of the finest art collections in the world.

Philip II of Spain (r. 1556–98)

Philip II's reign heralded Spain's Golden Age in literature and he became the first large-scale collector of paintings (including works by Titian, van der Weyden, Bosch) among the Habsburgs. He also collected jewels, musical instruments, medals, and tapestries. Highly religious, he oversaw the building and decoration of the Royal monastery El Escorial which he furnished with 1150 paintings.
