Spanish Art for Texas: The Meadows Museum at Southern Methodist University

The Meadows Museum at Southern Methodist University (SMU) in Dallas, Texas is recognized internationally for the quality of its collection of Spanish art and its scholarship. Its mission is to be a center for the study of Spanish art and material culture in the United States. The museum’s formation and focus are the result of the specific taste of its founder, Algur H. Meadows, a Texas oilman who spent considerable time in Spain. Although part of SMU’s school of art, The Meadows Foundation continues to be the museum’s primary supporter thanks to large grants to support acquisitions, exhibitions, and educational programming. The Meadows Museum therefore serves not only the university community of students, faculty, and staff, but engages Dallas, North Texas, and international audiences as well. It plays a key role in the promotion of Spanish art and culture in the US. The recent foundation of the Custard Institute for Spanish Art and Culture under the auspices of the museum promises to expand the academic and research role of the institution. This lecture will address and problematize some of the unique qualities and goals of the Meadows Museum, the development of its collection of Spanish art, and the ways in which it serves its diverse communities.

Dr. Amanda W. Dotseth is the Interim Director and Curator at the Meadows Museum, Southern Methodist University, where she also served as Assistant Curator between 2006 and 2009. She completed her Ph.D. on Romanesque Architecture at the Courtauld Institute of Art in 2015, and has held fellowships with Fulbright and Mellon Foundations as well as at the Spanish National Research Council. Her research focuses on medieval Spain but has addressed a wide range of topics, including Baroque painting, medieval treasuries, and collecting history. She has contributed to a number of exhibitions, including Fernando Gallego and His Workshop: The Altarpiece from Ciudad RodrigoEl Greco, Goya, and a Taste for Spain: Highlights from the Bowes MuseumCanvas & Silk: Historic Fashion from Madrid’s Museo del TrajeMurillo: Picturing the Prodigal Son, and Dalí/Vermeer: A Dialogue.
