Del clasicismo al barroco. Historical Myth and National Identity. Similar situations can be seen in other ecclesiastical ventures throughout Castile. Since its foundation in the Real Academia de Bellas Artes de San Fernando had effectively been an instrument with no real power; a tertulia of the artistic elite, it provided grounds for debate, training and a platform for the initial reform of the arts in Spain.

Studia historica moderna garcix The Sagrario of Seville Cathedral The plan to construct a new sacramental chapel for Seville Cathedral was approved in Territorio, artes, espacio y sociedad. Plans for the marble project were abandoned the following year owing to the extremely high cost associated with stone work and as has been discussed, a recurrent shortage of funds Recio Mir Whilst income from rented lands was more or less stable, tithes, which were tied to agricultural production and incomes, were a volatile component of the income base, as were the vagaries of votive garci.
With the stabilisation of the Castilian economy towards the end of the seventeenth century came a renewed programme of large-scale architectural construction in Seville. Building activity was weak, especially when compared with that of the sixteenth century, yet like the income stream that supported it, it did not stop completely, instead changing course. It was customary Castilian habit to commemorate the passing of a monarch by erecting an ephemeral renacimlento monument, generally commissioned and paid for by the municipal council.
It could also be read as a spiritual manoeuvre, sealing a pact between the citizens of a city, its Church and God, gambling, as it were, for a better future through architecture Cruz Isidoro Explorations in Economic History Arte y uso de la urquitectura: Ollero Lobato, F On the other hand, the maintenance of this paradigm exaggerated an overall economic climate unfavourable towards the general flourishing of the profession outside of these limited realms.
Architectural Histories2 1p. Kubler, and many other historians, posited that the use of cheaper, more common materials such as brick, plaster and paints — characteristic of Spanish ecclesiastical architecture and interiors of the Baroque — was a result of economic imperatives brought ahead by the crisis.
However, the commissioning and contracting of the ephemeraie for the inauguration of the Sagrario three years earlier, along with those of the grand festivities, suggests that the scale and production of these events may be a testament to the greater liquidity of the Cathedral rather than that of the city council.
Whereas the Crown principally constricted its building programme within the orbit of its Madrid-centred universe, the Counter Reformation expanded its spiritual world into the chancels, bays and niches of every cathedral, church, and convent throughout Castile, the Americas and Asia. In essence Recio Mir questioned the hypothesis of the architectural historian George Kubler This paper has demonstrated that although the economic instability that occurred within Castile during the seventeenth century affected and transformed the manner in which architecture was commissioned, conceived and constructed, it did not signify an end, but rather a reconception of how to maximise limited resources with limitless inventiveness.
The ephemeral altarpiece erected in the Sagrario, Seville Cathedral, El clero ante la crisis del siglo XVII: Another case from the completion of the sacristy — the plaster decoration of the vaults — further highlights the problematic of material specification, financing and a shift in the architectural paradigm of seventeenth-century Castile. It will be argued that it is this legacy that has shaped the historiography of seventeenth-century Castilian architecture, one that explicitly sought to render innovation into crisis.
On the one hand, the two institutional pillars of Church and state guaranteed a continuation of commissions, albeit of varying scale and nature.
A pesar de que o cabido de Sevilla pretendeu que quedase na cidade, Fancelli partiu para Granada en xullo de It did not, however, signify the end of architecture as so many critics of the late-eighteenth century lamented.
As shall be analysed in the following section, the combination of inflation, instability in monetary value and decreased Church income meant that architecture, like that realised in Seville in the s, could no longer be sustained as the paradigm. Universidad de Pablo de Olavide, pp. The gargantuan project of Seville was one srte the few Andalusian cathedrals to be completed in one continuous phase between and — excluding the Royal Chapel and other kelero spaces discussed in the second section of the paper.

A Santa Cea de Juan de Juanes The brick flooring installed in had to be ripped up to accommodate mass graves for the enormous number of dead; the resultant stench was apparently so foul that no work could be done on the site for five months.
The enormous sum spent on the project testifies to the improved financial liquidity of the Chapter in the eighteenth century compared with that of the seventeenth. This form of action was repeated again some six years later when the Chapter was faced with similar financial difficulties. Escuela Superior de Arquitectura de Madrid. Espazos de nomes Artigo Conversa. As has been reiterated in this investigation, the commissioning or continuation of new projects did not cease in totality, even during the most severe periods of crisis.
It was not until the beginning garcoa the next century that the definitive project was to come to fruition. Chapman, M and Ostwald, M eds.

This new mode of architecture is perhaps best illustrated by the series of projects that the Chapter of Seville Cathedral commissioned for the canonisation festivities of Saint Ferdinand III in From Giotto to Alberti and Modern Oblivian. These negative topoi varcia with crisis and failure have, in many cases, been integrated into much of the contemporary historiography of Spanish architecture of the histoia century, consequently relegating that architecture to a place of lesser importance within the western-European canon.
