Vicente Lleó Cañal

In spite of being a little-known period of the history of Seville, the image of the city during the stay of the Montpensier still lingers in the collective consciousness of its inhabitants. This study by Vicente Lleó Cañal fills the gap about the period by delving into issues such as Montpensier’s political project and its later collapse, the influence of the royal court in the city or the patronage of fine arts by the French prince. Published by our Foundation with the sponsorship of Abengoa, the volume also includes previously unpublished photographs.
