From Manet to Miró Exhibit at Meadows Museum

One of Spain's most important private collectors, Juan Abelló and his wife Anna Gamazo, have put their collection on loan for a brief period of time at the Meadows Museum. This exhibit marks the first time the Abelló collection has been shown in the United States.

The exhibit features 65 drawings from 45 of the most influential artists over the last 200 years. See works from three cultural art movements - Avant Garde, Post-Impressionism, and Surrealism.

Artists include: Manet, Degas, Dalí, Miró, Juan Gris, Julio González, Óscar Domínguez, Iturrino, Gargallo, Manolo Hugué, María Blanchard, Joaquín Torres García, Wifredo Lam, Cassatt, Pissarro, Renoir, Gauguin, Van Gogh, Toulouse-Lautrec, Bonnard, Klimt, Schiele, Matisse, Van Dongen, Modigliani, Maillol, Brancusi, González, Moore, Giacometti, Ribera, Murillo, Goya.

The collection is on display through December 2, 2008. Admission is $8 and free on Thursday's after 5pm! If you are new to art or have never really been influenced by any particular works of art, this is a great place to start if you live in Dallas.

This exhibition was organized by the Museo Thyssen-Bornemisza, the Meadows Museum, and the Abelló Collection and has been brought to Dallas by a generous gift from The Meadows Foundation.

View the collection through December 2, 2008.

  1. Joan Miro is my 3rd favorite of all time. I should have taken you to Madrid, the museums there are fantastic!

  2. Manet, Blanchard, Van Gogh, González wow ! I wonder how did they manage to save priceless works for themselves. I believe their price is a fortune! So generous of Juan Abelló and his wife Anna Gamazo to share their paintings with people even if it is for a few hours.

  3. Wifredo Lam and Cassatt are my favorite as they are one of the greatest artists,I'm a quite a big fan of their art work, especially Wilfredo the way portray stuffs revives the Afro-Cuban spirit and culture, one of the greatest of all time.its a good initiative taken by Abello and Gamazo.
