January 28-30, 2022

Friday to Sunday from 1:00-5:00pm | American Academy of Arts and Letters | 633 West 155th Street, New York

No reservations required

This intimate exhibition will feature nearly two dozen drawings from the rich holding of the Hispanic Society Museum & Library. The focus will be on artists’ preparatory drawings for other works of art – frescoes, tapestries, oil paintings, and architectural-sculptural ensembles.  It will match the function of many drawings by Jose Clemente Orozco that were recently donated to the Hispanic Society by Salma and Michael Wornick. Another emphasis is to show earlier Mexican drawings such as by Rafael Ximeno y Planes and Juan Rodriguez Juárez. To provide a fuller understanding of the vast and diverse holdings at the Hispanic Society Museum & Library, the exhibition will also feature drawings by notable artist from both the Iberian Peninsula and Latin America from 17-20th centuries, such as Jusepe de Ribera, Bartolomé Esteban Murillo, Alonso Cano, Francisco Goya y Lucientes, Joaquin Sorolla y Bastida, and Francisco (Pancho) Fierro.
