Meadows Museum

Dallas, TX

Coinciding with the publication of the first catalogue raisonné of drawings by Jusepe de Ribera (1591-1652), the Meadows Museum, in collaboration with the Museo del Prado, presents an exhibition of about fifty drawings (out of a total of some 160 sheets attributable to the artist), ten paintings, and a small selection of prints. The exhibition will highlight the variety of Ribera’s drawings, the technical skill in his use of pen and ink and chalk, and the extraordinary originality of his subject matter, which includes anatomical figure studies, lively street scenes, capricious subjects, and scenes of martyrdom and torture.
