Summary/Abstract: The object of this work is the study of a poetic procedure with greco-latin influence in the poetry of the Golden Age: the ékprahsis in the broad sense. Various examples of descriptions classified by genres from Lope de Vega, Gabriel Bocángel, Francisco de Quevedo and Francisco de Rioja are provided for this purpose. We should appreciate the relation between the arts and the richness of the ecphrasis at this time, maybe for the extension of the silva.
