Iconografía de Sevilla, 1400 – 1650 is the first part of a four-volume series that reviews the history of Seville through the graphic portrayals of the city produced throughout the centuries. The series starts off in 1400, a time when paintings, engravings, high-reliefs, writings by travelers, documentary sources or buildings proliferated. All these evidences, which are still preserved, help better recreate the image of the ancient Seville. Published by our Foundation, this first volume addresses the past of the city from the late Middle Ages to the crisis period in 1640, which reached its peak with the plague occurred in 1649.
