The Museum of Fine Arts, Houston, presents Glory of Spain: Treasures from the Hispanic Society Museum & Library. The international traveling exhibition marks the first time a comprehensive selection of the Hispanic Society Museum & Library’s collection has been exhibited. The MFAH presentation will be on view at the re-opened museum through January 3, 2021.
Unparalleled outside of Spain, the collections of the New York–based Hispanic Society Museum & Library focus on the art and culture of Spain, Portugal, Latin America, and the Philippines, from antiquity up until the early 20th century. This exhibition presents some 200 objects—paintings, drawings, sculpture, illuminated manuscripts, maps, textiles, porcelains and ceramics, and metalwork and jewelry—spanning more than 4,000 years of Hispanic art and culture.
