Dallas, TX (Southern Methodist University), June 27, 2014 – The Meadows Museum at Southern Methodist University will present the first major exhibition in the U.S. of works from the House of Alba collection, one of the oldest and most significant private art collections in Europe. Treasures from the House of Alba: 500 Years of Art and Collecting will feature more than 100 European works—from paintings by Goya and Rubens to 16th-century tapestries by Willem de Pannemaker and 19th-century furniture created for Napoleon III—most of which have never been on public display or seen outside of Spain, as well as illuminated manuscripts, books, historic documents, miniatures, antiquities, prints, sculpture, drawings, and other objects. Curated by Dr. Fernando Checa Cremades, former director of the Museo Nacional del Prado in Madrid, Treasures from the House of Alba will be on view at the Meadows from April 18 through August 16, 2015, and will serve as the cornerstone to the Museum’s 50th anniversary celebration, which will continue throughout 2015.
