Santander sponsors special Goya exhibition at Boston's Museum of Fine Arts

Santander Bank, N.A., through the Fundación Banco Santander in Madrid, is sponsoring Goya: Order and Disorder, a landmark exhibition dedicated to Spanish master Francisco Goya (1746–1828) at the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, (MFA).

The MFA is the only venue to showcase this comprehensive collection of Goya's masterpieces.

"This Goya exhibition brings together two very important strands of Santander's identity, our commitment to New England and our heritage in Spain", said Roman Blanco, president and CEO of Santander US. "We are delighted to join with the Fundación Banco Santander to sponsor the exhibition. We commend the MFA for bringing together this extensive collection of Goya’s work that is sure to inspire all who attend".

There will be 170 paintings, prints and drawings by Goya on view at the MFA beginning October 12, 2014 through January 19, 2015. In addition to works from its own collection, the MFA has secured loans from the Museo Nacional del Prado in Madrid, the Musée du Louvre in Paris, the Galleria degli Uffizi in Florence, The Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York and the National Gallery of Art in Washington, DC. The MFA is also borrowing works from private collections in Europe and the United States.

"This exhibition offers a once-in-a-generation opportunity to enter the mind of one of the great artists of all time, whose powerful masterpieces continue to inspire us", said Malcolm Rogers, Ann and Graham Gund Director at the MFA. "We're grateful for Santander's sponsorship of Goya: Order and Disorder, and look forward to building upon this exciting new partnership".

To promote awareness of the exhibition and involve the public, Santander has commissioned local artist James Weinberg to create a paint-by-numbers mural of Goya's work The Parasol (1777, Museo Nacional del Prado) that the public is invited to paint. The mural will be available in Boston's Copley Square between Trinity Church and the Boston Public Library on October 18 and October 19 from 8 am to 6 pm.

"We designed the mural project to draw attention to the arts and give the public the experience of viewing and painting one of Goya’s masterpieces", said Peter R. Greiff, Head of Communications and Corporate Affairs at Santander.

"This project brings the community together to create and appreciate art and is one of the many ways in which we show our commitment to Boston and New England".
