At the Beach: Mariano Fortuny y Marsal and William Merritt Chase

When: 
Sunday, June 24, 2018 - 10:00am - Sunday, September 23, 2018 - 5:00pm
Where: 

The painters Mariano Fortuny y Marsal (1838-74) and William Merritt Chase (1849-1916) were separated by more than 10 years of age, the Atlantic Ocean and different backgrounds. This focused exhibition, however, pairs the two while it highlights a modern subject popular among international circles in the nineteenth century, and one that both painters treated with remarkable skill: people at the beach. Recently acquired by the Meadows Museum, Fortuny’s very last painting, Beach at Portici (1874), depicts the artist’s family enjoying leisure time at the beach while residing in Italy.

Price: 

$12 for adults; $8 for seniors; $4 for non-SMU students; FREE for members, children under 12 and SMU faculty, staff and students; FREE Thurs. after 5 p.m.

Murillo at the Meadows: A 400th Anniversary Celebration

When: 
Wednesday, December 6, 2017 - 10:00am - Sunday, December 2, 2018 - 5:00pm
Where: 

December 2017 marked the 400th birthday of Bartolomé Esteban Murillo (1617–82), luminary of Golden Age Seville. The Meadows Museum holds five of this star painter’s works, more than any other museum in the United States. To celebrate his quadricentennial, the museum is exhibiting its extraordinary Murillo works together with paintings by his Sevillian contemporaries, thus resituating Murillo within the artistic context with which he remains so intimately associated.

Price: 

$12 for adults; $10 for seniors; $4 for non-SMU students; FREE for members, children under 12 and SMU faculty, staff and students; FREE Thurs. after 5 p.m.
