Meadows Museum & Sorolla

Screen Shot 2014-12-30 at 7.58.20 PM I was honored to be invited by the Meadows Museum on the SMU campus in Dallas, TX to give an Afternoon Gallery Talk in conjunction with their amazing show “Sorolla and America” which ran from Dec 13, 2013-April 19, 2014. Screen Shot 2014-12-30 at 8.04.24 PM My talk was titled: “Past and Present: Sorolla and the Tradition of Plein-Air Painting” and was on Friday, February 28, at 12:15 pm. I was told by Carmen Smith (the Director of Education at the Meadows Museum) that it was the most highly attended gallery talk they had ever had … was standing room only as almost two hundred people filled the galleries. It was great time for me as I got to see and talk about works I had admired for along time while also being able to have a wonderful Q&A with the audience. I think if you have any interest in perceptually-based painting, then Joaquin Sorolla is a “must-see”…Luckily his masterwork titled “Visions of Spain” has recently been cleaned an rehung in its own renovated gallery in the Hispanic Society of America in NYC.     http://www.hispanicsociety.org4613428614_f4c54e02bd_z
