Gallery Tour: Spanish Masterpieces
Saturday, March 29, 2014
Diego Velázquez, Francisco de Goya, and Pablo Picasso are the three greatest artists in Spanish history. The DIA owns fascinating examples of their work, as well as other paintings by world-famous masters including Bartolomé Esteban Murillo, José de Ribera, and Joan Miró. Since Murillo’s Immaculate Conception of the Virgin entered the collection in 1889, the DIA’s holdings of Spanish Art have grown gradually and increased with several major acquisitions since Salvador Salort-Pons joined the DIA.
Please join Salvador Salort-Pons to experience the Golden Age of the “Iberian paint brushes”and the passionate talent of the Spaniards, who broke with the Renaissance tradition of painting and laid the foundation for twentieth-century art.
