    Spanish pictural Art is the visual art made in Spain, and that of Spanish artists worldwide whilst an important contributor to Western Art (particulary influenced by Italy and France, especially during the Baroque and Neoclassical periods) and producing many famous and influential artists (including Diego Velázquez, Francisco de Goya, Pablo Picasso, Juan Gris, Salvador Dalí & Joan Miró). Spanish Art has often had distinctive characteristics and been assessed somewhat separately from others European schools. These differences can be partly explained by the moorish heritage in Spain (particularly in Andalucía), and throught the political and cultural climate during the Counter-Reformation and the subsequent eclipse of Spanish power under the Bourbon dynasty. Actually there are a lot of original and creative painters, with international careers. Antoni Tápies, Miquel Barceló, Juan Muñoz, Antonio López García, Cristóbal Toral, Juan Genovés, Manolo Valdés, Ignacio Puras Trimiño, Eduardo Úrculo, Juan Martínez García, Manolo Sierra, Félix de la Concha are a few among the most recognized. analopetegui@terra.es
