We currently have five frames in the Museo del Prado in Madrid, all part of a major exhibition called “Treasures from the Hispanic Society of America: Visions of the Hispanic World.” All five are on oil paintings by Ignacio Zuloaga (1870-1945) which we framed earlier this year for The Hispanic Society, located in New York City. They include the self-portrait, below, framed in a Compound Mitered Frame No. 308.1 + Cap 411 — 4″ total width, in quartersawn white oak (Saturated Medieval Oak stain) with gilt liner; and four very large pieces (the largest is about 8 feet by 6-1/2 feet) in No. 4001—3″ Mortise-and-Tenon frames in walnut. The exhibition looks extremely impressive, so if by chance you’re traveling to Madrid before the show closes September 10, by all means go see it. I’m told it will be traveling to Mexico City next spring and to other North American venues through 2019, according to the Society’s website.
Here’s a view of it in the display at the Prado. The painting on the back wall is also in one of our frames.Here is another one of the large ones.The Hispanic Society of America has the largest collection of Spanish art outside of Spain. While the exhibition is on tour, the main building of the Museum is closed for major renovation. Below is a picture of the spectacular interior.« Back to Blog
