El Greco in New York City
Wednesday, November 5
Bus departs RPM lot @7:00 a.m. Bus returns to RPM lot @7:30 p.m.*
Travel with the Reading Public Museum to New York City this fall to be among the first to see a pair of groundbreaking exhibitions celebrating the 400th anniversary of El Greco.
Our first stop will be to The Frick Collection to view the special exhibition El Greco at The Frick Collection. The Frick will unite its three remarkable El Greco paintings — Purification of the Temple and portraits of Vincenzo Anastagi and St. Jerome — showing them together, for the first time, on one wall of the East Gallery.
After our time at The Frick we will head to The Petrie Court Café at The Metropolitan Museum of Art for a relaxing lunch.
Finally we will view the special exhibition El Greco in New York. This exhibition also commemorates the 400th anniversary of the death of El Greco. The Metropolitan Museum and the Hispanic Society of America are pooling their collections of the work of this great painter to provide a panorama of his art unrivaled outside the Museo del Prado in Madrid. This is a unique opportunity to see this artist's work, which exerted such a strong impact on modern painting and especially appealed to New York collectors. Before heading home guests will have free time to view the collections at The Metropolitan Museum of Art.
