El Greco to Goya - Spanish Masterpieces from The Bowes Museum

(Wednesday) (Sunday)

Price: Admission FreePrice: Admission FreeThe Wallace Collection presents El Greco to Goya - Spanish Masterpieces from The Bowes Museum: the first London exhibition of Spanish art from The Bowes Museum in County Durham, including works by Goya and El Greco.This collaborative exhibition between the Wallace Collection and The Bowes Museum celebrates the partnership between these two great museums. Like the Wallace Collection, The Bowes Museum is the product of one family’s obsession with collecting great works of art. John Bowes and Richard Wallace – both illegitimate sons of aristocratic fathers – bequeathed collections of international significance to the nation.The exhibition spans three centuries and explores one of the largest collections of Spanish art in Britain. On display are El Greco’s The Tears of Saint Peter, thought to be the artist’s earliest interpretation of this subject, Goya’s psychologically penetrating Portrait of Juan Antonio Meléndez Valdés and disturbing Interior of a Prison, plus perhaps less well known but outstanding works such as Antonio de Pereda’s, Tobias restoring his father’s sight.The works chosen explore a period of huge social, religious and political upheaval in Spain, providing a microcosm of the changes in style and subject matter during this period. The paintings complement works by Velázquez and Murillo on permanent display at the Wallace Collection.“El Greco to Goya is not only an unprecedented opportunity to see Spanish art of extraordinary power and significance in London, but also the beginning of an exciting relationship between the Wallace Collection and The Bowes Museum. Both institutions share a commitment to making great art accessible to wider audiences and we are looking forward to working closely together to develop a long term connection between London and the North East.”- Dr Xavier Bray, Wallace Collection Director From El Greco to Goya - Spanish Masterpieces from The Bowes Museum - YouTube@font-face{font-family:'Roboto';font-style:normal;font-weight:500;src:local('Roboto Medium'),local('Roboto-Medium'),url(//fonts.gstatic.com/s/roboto/v16/RxZJdnzeo3R5zSexge8UUaCWcynf_cDxXwCLxiixG1c.ttf)format('truetype');}@font-face{font-family:'Roboto';font-style:normal;font-weight:400;src:local('Roboto Regular'),local('Roboto-Regular'),url(//fonts.gstatic.com/s/roboto/v16/zN7GBFwfMP4uA6AR0HCoLQ.ttf)format('truetype');}@font-face{font-family:'Roboto';font-style:italic;font-weight:500;src:local('Roboto Medium Italic'),local('Roboto-MediumItalic'),url(//fonts.gstatic.com/s/roboto/v16/OLffGBTaF0XFOW1gnuHF0Z0EAVxt0G0biEntp43Qt6E.ttf)format('truetype');}@font-face{font-family:'Roboto';font-style:italic;font-weight:400;src:local('Roboto Italic'),local('Roboto-Italic'),url(//fonts.gstatic.com/s/roboto/v16/W4wDsBUluyw0tK3tykhXEfesZW2xOQ-xsNqO47m55DA.ttf)format('truetype');}.yt-uix-button-primary, .yt-uix-button-primary[disabled], .yt-uix-button-primary[disabled]:hover, .yt-uix-button-primary[disabled]:active, .yt-uix-button-primary[disabled]:focus { background-color: #167ac6; } An error occurred.Try watching this video on www.youtube.com, or enable JavaScript if it is disabled in your browser.
