Luis Martín Lecture Series in the Humanities Kenneth J. Andrien, Edmund J. and Louise W. Kahn chair in history, SMU
This series of talks focuses on the political conflicts that led to the Spanish Civil War and its aftermath, a period that shaped much of the history of 20th-century Spain. The program provides the historical backdrop to the artistic production in the Meadows Museum's exhibition "Modern Spanish Art from the Asociación Colección Arte Contemporáneo." Andrien explores the links between the major events of the Civil War era and its aftermath and the production of these modern masterpieces. This program is made possible by gifts from The Fannie and Stephen Kahn Charitable Foundation and The Eugene McDermott Foundation.
