Meadows Museum: Berruguete Through the Lens: Photographs from a Barcelona Archive

March 29-July 26
Tuesday-Saturday 10 am-5 pm and Sunday 1-5 pm

Paralleling this spring’s major exhibition Alonso Berruguete: First Sculptor of Renaissance Spain, this installation features early twentieth-century photographs of works by Alonso Berruguete (c. 1488-1561) from the Archivo Mas in the holdings of the Meadows Museum. Named for photographer Adolf Mas Ginestà (1860-1936), Archivo Mas is an archive of some 10,000 photographs of Spain and Italy that provide a prewar glimpse into the state of preservation of pre-modern buildings and their contents during the early twentieth century. The Meadows Museum owns a set of prints from this valuable archive, and this is the first time any have been exhibited. Although beautiful works of art in themselves, these archival photographs offer the rare opportunity to observe some of Berruguete’s larger commissions in situ and therefore within their intended architectural contexts.
