The New Mexico Museum of Art has been selected as the only U.S. venue for this exhibition drawn from the British Museum's extensive collection.  Renaissance to Goya: Prints and Drawings from Spain brings together for the first time important prints and drawings, many never before been on display, by Spanish and other European artists who were working in Spain from the mid-sixteenth to the nineteenth century. The exhibition will provide new insights into the visual culture and history of Spain, a country renowned for its painting and architecture, but not so well known for its graphic arts in comparison to its European counterparts, Italy and France.

The New Mexico Museum of Art is the fourth and final stop of an international tour that has included London, Madrid, and Sydney.

Exhibition dates: Saturday, December 14, 2013 through Sunday, March 9, 2014.

Hours: 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. daily, Tuesday – Sunday (closed Mondays until Memorial Day weekend). Open the first Friday of the month from 5 to 8 p.m.

Admission: $9 out-of-state visitors; $6 New Mexico residents. Free on Sunday to New Mexico residents, free on Wednesday to New Mexico senior citizens, free to Museum Members and children under 17, free Friday evenings 5 to 8 p.m.

This exhibition is presented by the British Museum in collaboration with the New Mexico Museum of Art.
