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 to the early 20th century.
The traveling exhibition Glory of Spain: Treasures from the Hispanic Society Museum & Library spans more than 4,000 years of Hispanic art and culture through some 200 objects: paintings, drawings, sculpture, illuminated manuscripts, maps, textiles, porcelains and ceramics, and metalwork and jewelry.
Glory of Spain highlights themes such as Antiquity in Spain; Medieval Spain; Golden Age Spain; Viceregal and 19th-Century Latin America; Enlightenment in Spain; and Modern Spain. Among the many artists represented are Francisco de Goya y Lucientes, El Greco, Bartolomé Esteban Murillo, Jusepe de Ribera, Diego Velázquez, and Francisco de Zurbarán.
