Nancy Cohen Israel, art historian, educator, and writer
Beginning in the late nineteenth century, American collectors became enamored with the work of contemporary Spanish artists. Using the exhibition Spanish Light: Sorolla in American Collections as our guide, as well as the Meadows Museum’s permanent collection, this four-part series will explore the dynamic relationship between these patrons and the artists they collected, and how the legacy of American collectors continues to shape our museums.
