Treasures from the House of Alba: 500 Years of Art and Collecting
April 18–August 16, 2015
For more than 500 years, the Alba family has formed part of the most important aristocratic lineages in Europe. In celebration of the Meadows Museum’s 50th anniversary, they are graciously allowing more than 130 works from their private collection to leave Spain for the very first time. Treasures from the House of Alba: 500 Years of Art and Collecting presents paintings and decorative arts drawn from three of the family’s most spectacular palaces in Madrid, Seville, and Salamanca, including works by Titian, Goya, Rubens, Rembrandt, Ingres, Renoir, Chagall, and many more.
