Celebrating conservation of the Museum’s important painting The Last Communion of Saint Peter Nolasco by Francisco Pacheco, this exhibition investigates Pacheco and his relationships with Velázquez and the Sevillian School of painting, exploring the role of Pacheco as the master of the second generation of painters of the seventeenth-century in Seville.
This exhibition, guest-curated by Dr Veronique Gerard Powell, is presented by The Bowes Museum and Auckland Castle Trust in collaboration with Durham University.
The purpose of this partnership is to celebrate and communicate the important collections of Spanish Art in County Durham to audiences of all walks of life and interests, nationally and internationally. The partnership aims to promote a centre for the study of Spanish Art and Culture
in the United Kingdom, and develop County Durham as a world-class arts and cultural destination.
Must See! A complementary exhibition at Auckland Castle, Hidden Treasures: Spanish Art in County Durham (15th October 2014-30th March 2015) highlights objects and artwork from across the region.
