 Notes
Abstract: Through a study of representations of King Philip V, 1701–1723, this paper explores how politics and social anxieties contributed to a crisis of Spanish masculinity in the early 18th century. Accustomed to the French courtly fashions and artistic styles of Versailles, Philip V broke with the austere traditions of previous Spanish kings and instead favored forms of dress and art that were criticized as effeminate by Spaniards. In their eyes, Phillip V was unduly influenced by his grandfather, Louis XIV, and, together with his preferences for French art, his reign signaled the defeat of Spain’s traditionally sober, aesthetically masculine, cultural identity.
