Episode No. 301 of The Modern Art Notes Podcast features curators Ronda Kasl and Rima Girnius.
Along with Jonathan Brown and Clara Bargellini, Metropolitan Museum of Art curator Ronda Kasl is the co-curator of “Cristóbal de Villalpando: Mexican Painter of the Baroque,” which is at the Met in New York through October 15. Villalpando is considered one of the two major artists of seventeenth-century New Spain. The Met’s small survey of his work features eleven paintings, including Villalpando’s 28-feet-high Transfiguration of Jesus (1683), his first masterpiece.
On the second segment, Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art curator Rima Girnius discusses two recently re-attributed paintings in the N-A’s collection: Hieronymus Bosch’s The Temptation of St. Anthony (about 1500-1510) and Albrecht Bouts’s Christ Crowned with Thorns (about 1490-95). The N-A is presenting the paintings and information about the re-attributions in “Rediscovering Hieronymus Bosch and Albrecht Bouts,” which is on view in Kansas City through May 27, 2018.
