'The Spanish Gesture'
‘The Spanish Gesture: Drawings from Murillo to Goya in the Hamburger Kunsthalle’ is the first large-scale exhibition of the Kunsthalle’s superb collection of drawings by Spanish masters from the 16th to the 18th centuries.
The Kunsthalle of Hamburg holds one of the most significant collections of Spanish drawings found outside of Spain, containing works by Alonso Cano, Bartolomé Esteban Murillo, Juan de Valdés Leal and Francisco de Goya y Lucientes. The Spanish Gesture: Drawings from Murillo to Goya in the Hamburger Kunsthalle is the first exhibition to present this exquisite collection on a larger scale, 123 years after it was first bought by the Kunsthalle of Hamburg.
As part of the continued collaboration between the Meadows Museum and the Museo Nacional del Prado, approximately eighty drawings from the Kunsthalle of Hamburg will be on view in Dallas, and will be published in the accompanying catalogue. The exhibition will travel to Madrid for display at the Museo Nacional del Prado September 2014–January 2015.
