Art in Medieval and Renaissance Spain

When: 
Friday, March 1, 2019 - 10:30am

Luis Martín Lecture Series in the Humanities

Speakers: Ali Asgar Alibhai, Visiting Lecturer, The University of Texas at Dallas; Amanda Dotseth, Curator, Meadows Museum; Julie Harris, Art Historian; Wendy Sepponen, Mellon Curatorial Fellow, Meadows Museum; and Abbey Stockstill, Assistant Professor, Meadows School of the Arts

While the Meadows Museum is perhaps best known for its excellent collection of Early Modern and Modern Spanish art, it is also home to significant holdings of medieval and Renaissance painting and sculpture. Recent years have seen the significant addition of fifteenth- and sixteenth-century panel paintings to the collection, which help to offer a more balanced history of Spanish art. In order to contextualize these important acquisitions, this lecture series will consider art-making in the Middle Ages, beginning with the oldest object in the Meadows collection, which dates to the tenth century. It will highlight the ways in which Spain’s multi-confessional makeup inspired a remarkable diversity of visual expression. Architecture and its adornments; intimate, portable objects; sacred books; and monumental altarpieces all made by and for Iberian Christians, Muslims and Jews will be examined. The six-part lecture series will conclude with a look forward to the stylistic shifts characteristic of Renaissance art and architecture in the sixteenth century. For more information, contact meadowsmuseuminfo@smu.edu.

 

Price: 

$60 for the 6-part series; free for museum members and for SMU faculty, staff and students. Reservations required; call 214.768.8587.
