Mark your calendars for June 11 at the Clark Museum in Massachusetts: That’s when a monumental exhibition of Old Master paintings from the Prado Museum opens.
It seems apropos that the first word in the title of an upcoming exhibition at the Clark Museum is splendor because that’s exactly what patrons can expect. Featuring 24 unforgettable masterpieces never before shown in America, “Splendor, Myth, and Vision” celebrates the role of the nude in Western painting.
Among the notable names included in the exhibition are Titian, Peter Paul Rubens, Jacopo Tintoretto, Diego Velázquez, Jan Brueghel the Elder, Guercino, Nicolas Poussin, Luca Giordano, Guido Reni, and Jusepe de Ribera.
Via the museum, “The works presented in ‘Splendor, Myth, and Vision’ are among the finest of the Prado’s unparalleled holdings, selected not only for their relationship to the exhibition’s themes, but also for their beauty and historical significance.”
