SECRETS OF GLORY:

Baron Taylor and his Voyage pittoresque en Espagne

This is the first full critical study of Voyage pittoresque en Espagne by Baron Taylor (1789-1879), a key work in the nineteenth-century travel literature which established Spain as a new and exotic tourist destination in Europe.

Both the long gestation of the book and the multiple facets of its author’s career have always been wrapped in mysteries, which Alisa Luxenberg now brilliantly resolves, discovering unknown aspects of Taylor’s life—his Masonic membership, his literary pseudonyms, the family he maintained in secret for a long time—which are decisive in explaining his complex personal life and his ambitious publishing ventures.

Alisa Luxenberg is professor of art history at the University of Georgia (Athens, USA). Her research focuses on Franco-Spanish artistic confrontation and exchange, modes of realism, and intersections of art and science.
