The Wandering Yankee- Museo Del Prado exhibit at Museum of Fine Arts Houston

When we Americans think of art in Spain our minds naturally go to two periods, first the period following her catapulting into a world power following the “discovery” of the Western Hemisphere, and the twentieth century, especially the works of Picasso.  Here in Houston we have the opportunity, at least for a few more days to receive an excellent education in both periods and the centuries between.

From now until the 31st (yes Easter) there is a world class exhibit of pieces on loan from Spain’s national museum the Museo Del Prado.  If you’re in Houston you need to get there if you haven’t yet, from El Greco to Goya to dozens of artists in between, and paintings from passions to scenes reminiscent of N.C. Wyeth it’s a truly amazing show.

 

Next week I should, should have a write up of the Picasso show itself, unless the road calls again.
