Murillo at the Meadows: A 400th Anniversary Celebration

Bartolomé Esteban Murillo

Mercredi, 6 Décembre, 2017 - Dimanche, 2 Décembre, 2018

December of 2017 will witness the 400th birthday of Bartolomé Esteban Murillo (1617–1682), luminary of Golden Age Seville. The Meadows Museum is in possession of five of this star painter’s works, more paintings by him than any other museum in the United States. This exhibition celebrates this painter by exhibiting the extraordinary holdings by Murillo at the Meadows together with paintings by his Sevillian contemporaries, thus resituating the artist within the artistic context with which he remains so intimately associated.

Each of these paintings dates to the museum’s founding collection, assembled by Algur H. Meadows himself. This December, we invite you to share his enthusiasm for this artist and to enjoy anew the museum’s extraordinary collection of his paintings.
