When the DIA’s Melancholy Woman by Pablo Picasso returns this summer after having been on loan to several prestigious museums over the past two years, it will bring with it other masterworks by Spain’s most well-known artists.

WWJ Newsradio 950’s Pat Sweeting spoke with DIA curator of European painting Salvador Salort-Pons.

He said it was the Melancholy Woman’s return that brought the   “Five Spanish Masterpieces” exhibit to mind.

“We thought to celebrate its return we could ask other institutions to lend us some pictures so that the painting would come back accompanied by another four great Spanish paintings by other Spanish masters,”

Along with Picasso’s painting, the exhibit  includes Portrait of the Matador Pedro Romero, Francisco de Goya, Kimbell Art Museum, Fort Worth, Texas; The Holy Family with St. Anne and the Infant St. John the Baptist, El Greco, Museo del Prado, Madrid; Soft Construction with Boiled Beans, Salvador Dalí, Philadelphia Museum of Art; and Portrait of a Man, Diego Velázquez, The Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York.

The exhibit is free with museum admission.  It opens Thursday and runs through Aug. 19.
