LUIS MARTÍN LECTURE SERIES IN THE HUMANITIES

Reflecting on Ribera:
Art and Culture in Spain and Spanish Naples, 1600-1700
Four Fridays, February 3 – March 3, 10:30 a.m. – 11:00 a.m.
Adam Jasienski, assistant professor of art history, SMU

This lecture series investigates the world and work of Spanish-born artist Jusepe de Ribera (1591-1652), the subject of the forthcoming exhibition  Between Heaven and Hell: The Drawings of Jusepe de Ribera

meadowslectureseries2(opening March 12). A careful analysis of specific artworks by Ribera and his contemporaries will situate the artist within the broader context of the global Iberian empire, in which his chosen hometown of Naples played an integral role. Some of the themes examined will include Ribera’s confrontation with the legacies of Caravaggio and Domenichino, his penchant for violent scenes of martyrdom and suffering, the appeal of his stark realism, and his creation of images that were both effective religious objects and cutting-edge contemporary artworks. Coffee and pastries served in the Founders Room before each lecture at 10 a.m.

 

Advance registration required. $50 for the 4-part series; free for Museum members, SMU staff, faculty and students. To register, please call 214.768.8587.
