EXHIBITION | Masterpiece in Residence: Juan Sánchez Cotán’s Still Life with Quince, Cabbage, Melon, and Cucumber
March 6 2022 - June 26 2022Free
The Meadows Museum launches an exciting new loan program featuring some of the world’s most significant holdings of Spanish art within American collections, offering audiences the singular opportunity to view them within the context of Meadows’s permanent collection. The first painting in the series is the truly extraordinary and enigmatic still life by the artist-turned-monk Juan Sánchez Cotán (1560–1627). Painted around 1602, Still Life with Quince, Cabbage, Melon, and Cucumber is among the earliest and best of its genre in the history of European art; this painting set a precedent of the highest standard for still-life painting before the influential examples by Velázquez and other masters of the Baroque period, often referred to as Spain’s Golden Age.
