The Meadows Museum welcomes the magnificent portrait of Philip IV (1623-28), by Diego Velázquez (1599-1660). This is the third loan from the Museo Nacional del Prado in Madrid that comes to Dallas as part of the groundbreaking three-year partnership between the Meadows Museum, SMU, and the Spanish institution.
Also on exhibit: Vingt Poëmes (Twenty Poems), Pablo Picasso’s tribute to arguably one of Spain’s greatest poets, Luis de Góngora y Argote (1561-1627). Nineteen full-page etched female heads complement the poet’s sonnets. A modern merging of image and word, Vingt Poëmes demonstrates the interconnectedness in spite of centuries between Góngora and Picasso.
Both at the Meadows Museum through Jan. 13. Extended hours on Thursdays.
DEETS: Meadows Museum at SMU, 5900 Bishop Blvd. 10 a.m.–9 p.m. $10.
