The portraits of the Portuguese and Spanish queens represented the subtleties of their state through their clothing, jewelry, etc ... as well as broader motifs related to the representation of specific circumstances such as the ceremonial of each court. Consequently, the queens of the different dynasties were represented in a correlatively different way. A diachronic comparative study allows us to observe the evolution of invariants and variations of the representation, which provides significant materials for the systematic understanding of the cultural historical meaning and value of the Iberian royal portrait in the more general framework of the study of the forms of representation western.

Within the Mostra Espanha 2019 Program and in collaboration with the National Museum of Antiga Art, it is presented, under the scientific committee formed by Annemarie Jordan and Mercedes Llorente, an Iberian art history symposium that from different studies on the portraits of the Spanish and Portuguese queens discusses and analyzes the construc-tion and evolution of the royal representation from the Sixteenth to the Seventeenth century with participation of experts in the field.

More information on the symposium can be found at the conference website.
