The Drawings of Jusepe de Ribera

Saturday, March 25, 2017, 10:30 a.m. – 4:00 p.m.

Ribera was one of the most influential artists in seventeenthcentury Europe. Although Spanish by birth, he made his career in Italy, running a large workshop in Naples and further distributing his work by executing prints after his painted compositions. This workshop will focus on his mastery of drawing and how that translated to finished paintings and prints.
