From September 11, 2015 through January 3, 2016, The Meadows Museum at Southern Methodist University will serve as a home to the House of Alba collection, one of the oldest and most significant private art collections in Europe. This is the first major exhibition in the U.S. of works from the House of Alba collection.
Most of the work featured in the collection has never been on public display or seen outside of Spain. Treasures from the House of Alba: 500 Years of Art and Collecting features more than 100 European works—from paintings by Goya and Rubens to 16th-century tapestries by Willem de Pannemaker and 19th-century furniture created for Napoleon III.
The exhibit serves as a cornerstone of the Museum’s 50th anniversary celebration which will continue throughout 2015.
