El Greco’s monumental masterpiece Pentecost will be installed at the Meadows Museum at Southern Methodist University, marking the beginning of a multifaceted three-year partnership with the Prado Museum in Madrid. Pentecost will serve as a focal point for the reimagining of the museum’s installation of its permanent collection, acting as a gateway between the Old Masters and the artists of the 19th and 20th centuries. In conjunction with this presentation, the Meadows has organized two companion exhibitions, Spanish Muse: A Contemporary Response (through Dec. 12) and Sultans and Saints: Spain’s Confluence of Cultures (through Jan. 23), both exploring the history of Spanish art and its contemporary influence. Don’t miss works by Thomas Struth and Eve Sussman in Spanish Muse.
