The Meadows Museum at SMU is featuring Spanish art collection “The Abelló Collection: A Modern Taste for European Masters” for the first time in the U.S.
The works come from the private collection of Spanish collector Juan Abelló and his wife Anna Gamazo. Abelló‘s collection contains over 500 pieces spanning five centuries, more than 100 of which are on loan to the Meadows Museum until August.
Some of the collection’s highlighted pieces include Modigliani’s “The Cellist,” “Baptism of Christ” by Juan de Flandes, “Nu assis (Seated Nude)” by Pablo Picasso, and a pair of portraits by Francisco Goya.
“Making accessible these works of art—some of the finest and rarest in existence today—to an international audience will foster a broader forum for research, scholarship, and discourse in the field of art history and beyond,” said Almudena Ros de Barbero, curator of the Abelló collection.
The exhibition is part of the Meadows Museum’s 50th anniversary celebration, and is available for viewing until Aug. 2.
