Goya Portrait Featured at SMU’s Meadows Museum

meadows logoThe Meadows Museum at SMU received another exciting piece for its visitors- “Portrait of Ferdinand Guillemardet” has arrived on loan from the Musee de Louvre.

This piece by Francisco de Goya will be displayed alongside Vicente López y Portaña’s “Portrait of Richard Worsam Meade.” This display showing the styles of both Spanish artists is called “Goya and López: A Conversation,” and will be running until May 3.

“This juxtaposition of keynote works created in the same period by different artists will offer fresh perspectives on Goya’s and López’s art and technique and deepen understanding of the cultural, social, and art historical contexts of their work,” said Mark Roglan, Linda P. and William A. Custard Director of the Meadows Museum and Centennial Chair in the Meadows School of the Arts.

Meadows Museum visitors may also see more of Goya’s work in the exhibition “Goya: A Lifetime of Graphic Intervention” until March 1.
