Dr. Ilenia Colón Mendoza was invited as an expert in her field by the Center for Advanced Study in the Visual Arts at the National Gallery of Art to give a presentation on her research entitled “Berruguete’s Legacy: The Place of Polychrome Sculpture in the Hierarchy of Arts in Spain.”
Dr. Colón Mendoza participated in an international study day and conference organized on the occasion of the exhibition Alonso Berruguete: First Sculptor of Renaissance Spain on view at the National Gallery of Art, in Washington D.C., from October 13, 2019 – February 17, 2020. This is the first exhibition devoted to the artist outside of his home country. Organized with the Meadows Museum, Dallas, it brings together approximately thirty of his finest paintings, sculptures, and drawings, including a group of works from his most ambitious retablo, the high altarpiece of San Benito el Real in Valladolid, now housed in the city’s Museo Nacional de Escultura.
