Velázquez & Titian
January 12, 2023 @ 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm CST$10
Miguel Falomir Faus, director, Museo Nacional del Prado, Madrid
In 2017, Miguel Falomir Faus was appointed Director of the Museo Nacional del Prado, having previously served as both Head of Department of Italian and French Painting (to 1700) and Deputy Director for Collections and Research at the museum. During his tenure, Falomir made significant advances in the study of the museum’s Italian Renaissance paintings and was responsible for numerous temporary exhibitions on the subject. Falomir is a renowned expert on Titian (Tiziano Vecellio), an Italian artist whose influence over Spanish painter Diego Velázquez cannot be overstated. This lecture will explore the relationship between the work of these canonical painters.
