The Cities of Málaga Represented: Exploring Architectural Heritage Through Drawing and Painting


The present investigation aims to present the development of a research project funded by the Margarita Salas Grants, financed by the Ministry of Universities of Spain and the Next Generation funds from the European Union. Essentially, it consists of the study of the representations, both graphic and pictorial, of several cities in Málaga. New graphic and pictorial material is generated, both physical and digital, which allows for a descriptive and detailed study of the definitive visual hypotheses. This enables a deeper understanding of the places, the visualization of the different transformations undergone over the years, and the interpretations that have emerged regarding the styles and visions of each period or particular artist. The study is primarily focused on the localities of Málaga, Antequera, and Ronda, due to their high heritage value. Through an analytical and deductive logical methodology, based on the exploration of data obtained from key sources such as the drawings of Wyngaerde, and Joris Hoefnagel, among others, and paintings by authors such as Vicente Carducho, Federico Ferrandiz Terán, and David Roberts, among others, in addition to experimentation and artistic practice, these studies are carried out. We can compare the represented image with the current actual structure and highlight their differences. For this purpose, fieldwork is necessary, studying the spatial context primarily through photography and drawing. It is expected that the obtained results will be of high cultural and scientific interest, aiming to promote heritage value and attract the attention of individuals interested in this research field.
