Museo de Arte Ponce (Museo de Arte Ponce, Spanish Edition)

Colección Española

Text by Alejandra Peña, Pablo Pérez D’Ors, Iraida Rodríguez-Negrón.

El Museo de Arte de Ponce es una institución puertorriqueña cuyo foco principal es el arte europeo. A lo largo de los años, ha reunido una colección española tan ecléctica como interesante, representativa de un impresionante abanico de periodos, géneros, técnicas, formatos y escuelas a lo largo de más de cuatro siglos de pintura y escultura españolas. Con cerca de cinco mil objetos elaborados en diferentes técnicas —que van desde la antigua China budista hasta la América Latina contemporánea, pasando por la Inglaterra victoriana y la Europa del siglo XVII—, el Museo de Arte de Ponce es la institución más grande de su tipo en el Caribe y ocupa un lugar privilegiado entre los museos del continente americano en su conjunto. La naturaleza y calidad de su acervo pueden resultar sorprendentes, y una serie de factores históricos entran en juego a la hora de entender la feliz anomalía de su ubicación en un país que no se había distinguido por sus colecciones de pintura antigua. El presente libro, dedicado al arte español de antes de 1900, ha sido posible gracias a una generosa beca de investigación y publicación de la Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, que brindó la oportunidad de inventariar y reexaminar los 49 objetos incluidos en el catálogo, entre los que destacan obras de Claudio Coello, Francisco de Goya, Pedro de Mena, Bartolomé Esteban Murillo, El Greco y Joaquín Sorolla, entre otros.

The Ponce Museum of Art is a Puerto Rican institution whose main focus is European art. Over the years, it has brought together a Spanish collection that is as eclectic as it is interesting, representative of an impressive range of periods, genres, techniques, formats and schools throughout more than four centuries of Spanish painting and sculpture. With nearly five thousand objects made using different techniques —ranging from ancient Buddhist China to contemporary Latin America, passing through Victorian England and 17th century Europe—, the Ponce Museum of Art is the largest institution of its kind. type in the Caribbean and occupies a privileged place among the museums of the American continent as a whole. The nature and quality of its collection can be surprising, and a series of historical factors come into play when it comes to understanding the happy anomaly of its location in a country that had not been known for its collections of ancient painting. This book, dedicated to Spanish art before 1900, has been made possible thanks to a generous research and publication grant from the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, which provided the opportunity to inventory and re-examine the 49 objects included in the catalogue, including which include works by Claudio Coello, Francisco de Goya, Pedro de Mena, Bartolomé Esteban Murillo, El Greco and Joaquín Sorolla, among others.
