This exhibition presents approximately 100 highlights from their collection, including works by Francis Bacon, Georges Braque, Canaletto, Marc Chagall, Salvador Dalí, Edgar Degas, Francisco Goya, El Greco, Henri Matisse, Joan Miró, Amedeo Modigliani, Pablo Picasso and Jusepe de Ribera.

              INTERNATIONAL SYMPOSIUM 2014 Saturday, February 8, 2-5 PM 2 PM Blanca Pons-Sorolla, Exhibition Curator, Introduction and Opening Remarks 2:15 PM Marcus Burke, Senior Curator, Museum Department, The Hispanic Society of America "The Right Time and the Right Place: Sorolla and The Hispanic Society" Joaquín Sorolla first came to the notice of North American collectors in the early 1890s, and his work must surely have been known to Archer Milton Huntington, founder of The Hispanic Society of America, from at least 1900, when Huntington attended the Exposition Universelle at Paris where Sorolla won a Grand Prix. However, it was not until his visit to Sorolla’s 1908 exhibition in London that Huntington began acquiring works by the artist. The initial encounter led to preparations for an exhibition of Sorolla’s works at The Hispanic Society in New York in February 1909 – an astonishing success with nearly 160,000 visitors in four weeks – and a subsequent itinerant exhibition in 1911. With sales from the exhibitions, portrait commissions, and Huntington’s 1911 commission for the series of large mural canvases called Vision of Spain (1912-19), Sorolla not only became a wealthy man, but arguably the best-known Spanish artist of his time internationally. This lecture will outline the history of Sorolla’s connections with the The Hispanic Society and attempt to answer a series of questions: What was the secret of Sorolla’s success in America? What attracted Archer Huntington and many American critics and collectors to Sorolla’s art? What was Sorolla’s impact on American art, on Huntington, and on The Hispanic Society itself?

                      During a single month in 1909, more than 150,000 people flocked to see the portraits, genre scenes, and sun-filled beachscapes of Joaquín Sorolla y Bastida (1863-1923); he was the most popular Spanish artist in the world until the arrival of Pablo Picasso. "Sorolla and America" brings together more than 150 works of art that will explore for the first time this artist's unique relationship with early 20th-century America, examining his immense popularity, as well as his associations with contemporaries such as John Singer Sargent and William Merritt Chase. This exhibition has been organized by the Meadows Museum, SMU, The San Diego Museum of Art, and FUNDACIÓN MAPFRE. The contributions of The Hispanic Society of America have been crucial to the success of this exhibition. A generous gift from The Meadows Foundation has made this project possible. Promotional support provided by the Dallas Convention and Visitors Bureau and The Dallas Morning News.
