    • June 7, 1963: Eleven Spanish masterpieces from the collection of the late Oscar B. Cintas have been loaned to The Brooklyn Museum for an exhibition opening June 24. The pictures will remain at the Museum through November 3.

      Spanning a period of 200 years, some of the greatest names in Spanish art will be represented in this special showing of the remaining portion of the Cintas Foundation Collection. Three works by El Greco, including the large and extremely important “Christ in the House of Simon” executed between 1607 and 1610, are impressive examples of this great mannerist painter. There are two large Goya portraits, one being the excellent “Marques de Caballero” who was Minister of Grace and Justice under Joseph Bonaparte, the other representing “Admiral Don Jose de Mazarredo”, a painting formerly in the Spanish Royal Collection. Other paintings by Spanish masters include an early work by Velazquez, “The Grape Gatherer", Murillo’s “Immaculate Conception”, a large “Portrait of a Gentleman” of about 1670, and a genre scene, “Old Woman and Young Girl” adapted from the “Education of the Virgin” in the Galleria Spada in Rome.

      These masterworks, which were not included in the recent Parke-Bernet sale of Cintas paintings, are relatively unknown to the general public and to most scholars. They will be shown together as a group for the first time.

      The paintings will be exhibited with a selection of 17th and 18th century Spanish Colonial furniture in the East Gallery on the Fifth Floor at The Brooklyn Museum.

    "Hi, I am trying to find the name of the artist who took and is in the photograph that follows- http://www.brooklynmuseum.org/opencollection/exhibitions/664/Global_Feminisms_Remix/image/216/Global_Feminisms_Remix._%7C08032007_-_03032008%7C._Installation_view. I believe the artist takes pictures of herself dressed as a man but then exposes her femaleness, as in the photo of her dressed as an Ascetic Jew exposing her breast. Can you help me find her information? Thanks in advance- Aimee Record"
