Abstract

Avant‐Garde Art and Criticism in Francoist Spain, by Paula Barreiro López, Liverpool: Liverpool University Press, 2017, i–viii + 352 pp., 25 col. illus., £80In the Anglophone scholarly literature, the role of post‐war Spanish art has long been notable for its absence. The work of a few major artists, such as Antoni Tapiès, has been studied and exhibited, but until the publication of Paula Barriero López’s Avant‐Garde Art and Criticism in Francoist Spain, the specificities of the ‘aesthetic and ideological narratives’ (6) that defined Spanish art between the 1950s and the mid‐1970s were published in Spanish alone. Even in these publications no comprehensive research existed. With the end of the dictatorship, the time was finally right to undertake critical explorations of Spanish artists born between the 1920s and the 1940s. In the 1990s, however, numerous scholars began to look beyond the ‘First World’. When one thinks of the debates about neo‐avant‐gardes in the 1990s and 2000s, Avant‐Garde Art and Criticism in Francoist Spain demonstrates that a great opportunity was missed.In the latter part of the past century, the lack of in‐depth studies in English partly reflected the anomalous geopolitical position of the country.
