Oct. 11 - Nov. 8
6 p.m.
The Noblest Man: The Art of Diego Velázquez
Meadows Museum
5900 Bishop Boulevard,
Dallas, TX

Ticket Price: $40 for the five-part series
Nancy Cohen Israel, Art Historian, Owner of Art à la Carte, says Diego Velázquez has been called the “noblest and most commanding man among the artists of his country.” In a kingdom that valued the work of foreign artists above the work of native sons, Velázquez breathed new life into Spanish painting. He served as a painter to Philip IV as well as a valued member of court, and his realism helped make Spain an important artistic center. Capitalizing on this year’s Prado loan by Velázquez and using the Meadows collection extensively, this five-week lecture series will examine Velázquez’s beginnings in Seville, his ascent as a court artist in Madrid and ultimately his recognition as one of Europe’s most important painters. Registration is required. For information: 214-768-2765 or www.smu.edu/meadows
