Renaissance to Goya: prints and drawings from Spain at Art Gallery New South Wales with over 130 exceptional prints and drawings from the British Museum.
- 31 August – 24 November 2013
Renaissance to Goya: prints and drawings from Spain exhibition brings together for the first time prints and drawings by Spanish and other European artists working in Spain from the mid 16th to the early 19th century providing a compelling overview of more than 250 years of artistic production, including many works which have never before been on display.
The Art Gallery of NSW in Sydney is the only Australian venue in an international tour – which included the Prado in Madrid.
Beginning with works by 16th-century artists working in and around Madrid, the selection progresses chronologically and by region. Spain’s ‘Golden Age’ (the 17th century) is represented by important artists such as Diego Velázquez, Vicente Carducho and Alonso Cano in Madrid, Bartolomé Murillo and Francisco de Zubarán in Seville, and José de Ribera in Spanish Naples.
Renaissance to Goya: prints and drawings from Spain exhibition is presented by the British Museum in collaboration with the Art Gallery of NSW.
