Event Time and Date
In the most comprehensive presentation ever dedicated to the artist’s drawings – and the first major monographic exhibition organized on the artist in the United States in the last 25 years – the Meadows Museum, in collaboration with the Museo Nacional del Prado, presents an exhibition of nearly a third of the artist's surviving output, as well as eleven paintings, a small selection of prints, and one relief sculpture. The exhibition will highlight the variety of Ribera’s drawings; the technical skill in his use of pen and ink, and chalk; and the extraordinary originality of his subject matter, which includes anatomical figure studies, lively street images, capricious subjects, and scenes of martyrdom and torture.
