Spain's long history has produced innumerable influences on art and architecture. The bold dramatic scenes painted by Goya (1764-1828) and the exquisite landscapes and life-like portraits painted by Velazquez eloquently reflect Spain's mark on the art world.

Frames produced in Spain during the 17th century had many similar influences to those created in Italy, though they tend to have more deeply carved patterns and higher contrast finishes. These bold designs were primarily guilded and exuded an opulence reflective of the era.
