Following in El Greco's Footsteps: Toldeo to Madrid
April 21-30, 2014
In April, our Meadows Museum members commemorated the 4th centenary of El Greco’s death in 1614 by retracing the artist’s footsteps throughout central Spain.
The ten-day, exclusive trip led by museum director, Dr. Mark Roglán, involved visits to public and private art spaces throughout Toledo, Cuenca, El Escorial and Madrid. In addition to viewing over 300 works by El Greco, our members met with museum professionals, distinguished society members and dined in some of the finest restaurants. The El Greco exhibition in Toledo, with over one million visitors broke the attendance record for all Spanish exhibitions.
