Art and Science in the late 18th century in Spain
During the second half of the 18th century, science was one of the mainstays of the development and modernization of Spain. Some of the discoveries were real spectacles such as hot air balloon flights; others like the painted silhouettes, transformed social behaviour. The artists who lived through these times left their testimony through their works and at the same time they also benefited from these scientific advances, especially those related to optics such as mirrors, the camera obscura, optical machines, the magic lantern, the microscope and shadow play.
