Thursday Evening Lecture: Martín Rico and His Place in the 19th-Century Landscape Tradition

Nancy Cohen Israel, Art Historian, Owner of Art à la Carte

Landscapes. Traditionally, they provided a painting’s background, either as a foreboding wilderness or personal territory to be ruled. Beginning in the early 19th century, landscapes, in all their majesty or quietude, became their own subject matter. It is against this backdrop that Martín Rico painted many different types of landscapes, from his native Spain to those of France and Italy. In conjunction with the collaborative exhibition between the Meadows Museum and the Prado Museum, Impressions of Europe: 19th-Century Vistas by Martín Rico, this four-week series will look at the landscape traditions of these countries and see how Rico’s work is a product of these different topographies and cultures.
