Hispanic sculpture

After 4 years closed for renovations at its New York headquarters, the Hispanic Society reopens with the exhibition: “Gilded Figures: Wood and Clay Made Flesh”.

This splendid exhibition will offer a rare glimpse of a major art form from the Hispanic World 1500–1800: polychrome sculpture.

Attributed to Gil de Siloe, The Resurrection (ca. 1480–1500)

The over 20 sculptures exhibited will not only attest to the high level of artistic production, but they will also include major works by women artists and show how the stylistic conventions of Spain were adapted in the New World.

Luisa Roldán, Rest on the Flight into Egypt (ca. 1692–1706)

The exhibition is open from October 15 to January 9, 2022.
