Detroit, 20 June 2012, Art Media Agency (AMA).
“Five Spanish Masterpieces” is the title of the Detroit Institute of Art Museum’s new exhibition running from 21 June to 19 August 2012.
This exhibition celebrates the return of a work by Pablo Picasso, Melancholy Woman, which had been loaned for more than two years at several important institutions for exhibitions in Zurich, Amsterdam, San Francisco, Paris, and New York.
The work is not coming back alone as the museum is organising an exhibition on the greatest Spanish artists with five major works: the Portrait of the Matador Pedro Romero by Francisco de Goya (Kimbell Art Museum, Texas); the Holy Family with St. Anne and the Infant St. John the Baptist by El Greco (Museo del Prado, Madrid); Soft Construction with Boiled Beans by Salvador Dalí (Philadelphia Museum of Art); and Portrait of a Man by Diego Velázquez (Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York).
“Five Spanish Masterpieces” highlights the international importance of the DIA’s collection and the role it plays in spreading art, knowledge, and culture both in the United States and abroad.
