With four major canvases, SDMA boasts the nation’s largest collection of works by Francisco de Zurbarán (1598–1664), the leading devotional painter of Spain’s Golden Age. One critic even called the Museum “Zurbarán’s home in America.”

Dr. Michael Brown, Curator of European Art at SDMA, will discuss Zurbarán as visionary, innovator, and entrepreneur, and offer an insider view of the recent technical analysis and conservation treatment of several of his works, including Virgin and Child with Saint John the Baptist (1658).

This lecture is presented as a part of the Guest Lecture & Tour series, which focuses on works of art on view in the Museum as well as topics of interest in the broader art world. Lectures are followed by docent-led tours.

$13 members | $16 nonmembers | $8 seniors and military | $5 students

Sponsored by The San Diego Museum of Art Docent Council
