Impressions of Europe: Nineteenth-Century Vistas by Martín Rico
DALLAS, TEXAS  •  Meadows Museum  •  Ongoing

Meadows Museum in Dallas presents the first monographic exhibition on the Madrid-born landscape painter Martín Rico (1833-1908), one of the most important Spanish artists of the second half of the nineteenth century and a pioneering figure in the introduction of realist landscape. Organised in collaboration with the Museo del Prado in Madrid, where this exhibition was presented earlier this season with the title The landscape painter Martín Rico (1833-1908), and made possible through the support of the Regional Government of Madrid, this exhibition brings together more than forty paintings that are shown alongside a large group of watercolours, drawings and notebooks, most of which have never been exhibited in Spain.

Rico’s international reputation is largely based on the fact that he established a career outside Spain after he was awarded a State grant in 1862 to study landscape painting abroad. For more than forty years and until his death the artist worked in Paris and Venice where he captured the beauty of these two cities and established contacts with leading artists such as Camille Pissarro, one of the first generation of Impressionists, and Daubigny, the Barbizon School landscape painter.
