Fortuny: Friends and Followers

This new exhibition dedicated to Fortuny and his world explores the legacy of the popular Spanish painter’s work.

Mariano Fortuny y Marsal (1838–1874) was extremely popular during his lifetime and for decades beyond in both Europe and the United States. His painterly, proto-Impressionist style dazzled critics, spawned imitators, and enamored collectors. Today, however, Fortuny is lesser known outside of his native Spain.

Fortuny: Friends and Followers reconsiders the artist’s place in history, showcasing his far-reaching influence with the presentation of paintings and works on paper by William Merrit Chase, Jean-León Gérôme, Jean Louis Ernest Meissioner, John Singer Sargent, Joaquín Sorolla y Bastida, James Tissot, and many of the friends, family, and followers who engaged with the popular Spanish painter’s work.
