Splendor of the Hispanic World: Hispanic Society Museum & Library
Tuesday, November 12 at 6:30pm
The Hispanic Society Museum & Library, located on Broadway and 155th Street, was founded in 1904 by Archer Milton Huntington (1870-1955) as a museum and research library dedicated to the art and culture of the Hispanic world. The collections are unparalleled in their scope and quality, focusing on all facets of art, literature, and culture in Spain, Portugal, Latin America, and the Philippines up to the early 20th century. Highlights include works by El Greco, Velázquez, Goya, and Sorolla; sculpture by Pedro de Mena and Luisa Roldán; Latin American paintings by Vázquez, López de Arteaga, Rodríguez Juárez, and Campeche; as well as masterpieces in all areas of the decorative arts.
In his presentation, Senior Curator Marcus B. Burke will explore the fascinating history of the Hispanic Society, survey examples of some of the greatest treasures, and touch on the institution’s ambitious plans for the future. Visit HispanicSociety.org
