Between Heaven and Hell: The Drawings of Jusepe de Ribera
Mar. 12, 2023 - Jun. 11, 2017
In the most comprehensive presentation ever dedicated to the artist’s drawings – and the first major monographic exhibition organized on the artist in the United States in the last 25 years – the Meadows Museum, in collaboration with the Museo Nacional del Prado, presents an exhibition of 46 drawings (nearly a third of the artist’s surviving output), as well as a selection of paintings and prints. The exhibition highlights the variety of Ribera’s drawings; the technical skill in his use of pen and ink, and chalk; and the extraordinary originality of his subject matter, which includes anatomical figure studies, lively street images, capricious subjects, and scenes of martyrdom and torture.
