El Greco to Goya: Masterpieces of Spanish Painting from the Bowes Museum SOLD OUT
Private View | The Wallace Collection
Monday 9 October 2017 - 09:00 until 10:30
In Autumn 2017, the Bowes Museum will lend the Wallace Collection a selection of Spanish masterpieces from the 16th to 18th centuries. The paintings include El Greco’s The Tears of Saint Peter and Goya’s psychologically penetrating Portrait of Juan Antonio Meléndez Valdés. Like the Wallace Collection, the Bowes Museum is the product of one family’s obsession with collecting great works of art. John Bowes and Richard Wallace – both men of disputed legitimacy allegedly born of aristocratic fathers – bequeathed collections of international significance to the nation.
Join the Bowes Museum Curator, Bernadette Petti, for an exclusive private tour followed by tea, coffee and pastries in the Wallace Collection’s restaurant.
This event has been organised by the London Events Volunteer Fundraising Committee to help raise money for the Art Fund.
