“Murillo. From Heaven to Earth” – A talk by Guillaume Kientz (Hispanic Society of America).

When: April 18th, 2023 | 6 – 7pm (UK Time)

This talk will discuss the research for the exhibition Murillo. From Heaven to Earth curated by Guillaume Kientz at the Kimbell Art Museum in Forth Worth, 18 September 2022 – 29 January 2023. Inspired by the Kimbell’s mysterious Four Figures on a Step, the exhibition focused on Murillo’s earthly depictions of secular subjects and everyday life in seventeenth-century Seville. The show and its accompanying catalogue shed new light on Murillo’s innovative portrayals of beggars, street urchins and flower girls in the artist’s culturally rich narratives of youth and age, romance and seduction, faith and charity.

Guillaume Kientz is the Director and CEO of the Hispanic Society Museum and Library, New York. He previously served as Curator of European Art at the Kimbell Art Museum and as Curator of Spanish and Latin American Art at the Musée du Louvre.
