Meléndez Exhibition, Catalogue, & Review

This review, by Sanford Schwartz, in the Nov 5, 2009 New York Review of Books alerted me to a few things I’ve missed. Apparently there’s been a traveling exhibition, first at the National Gallery of Art this summer, currently at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art until January 3, and then at Boston’s Museum of Fine Arts: Luis Meléndez: Master of the Spanish Still Life.

Yale UP has produced the catalogue, Luis Meléndez: Master of the Spanish Still Life, ed. Gretchen A. Hirschauer, Catherine A. Metzger, Peter Cherry, and Natacha Seseña.

And I was in DC this summer and didn’t know about it! Maybe I’ll get to the Boston exhibit; I wonder how long a 5-year-old and 2-year-old will let me look at bodegones?

One thought on “Meléndez Exhibition, Catalogue, & Review

  1. Thank you for posting this, Scott. I didn’t know about the exhibit, and love Meléndez. I also just found out about this exibit:

    The Sacred Made Real | 21 October 2009 – 24 January 2010 | Future Exhibitions | National Gallery, London

    It focuses on 17th century Spanish devotional art, and it will be coming to DC Feb-May 2010.
