PONCE, PUERTO RICO. The Grand Tour of Museo de Arte de Ponce (MAP) will continue on April 6 with the opening at Phoenix Art Museum in Arizona of the exhibition Masterpieces of European painting from Museo de Arte de Ponce, comprised of 60 of the most important paintings of the institution. This show, which will also travel to Museo de San Carlos in Mexico City, Memphis Brooks Museum of Art and the Frist Center for the Visual Arts between 2008 and 2010, is representative of all the European art schools that comprise the MAP collection, such as the Spanish, Flemish, Dutch, Italian, French and English. Among the works available for the public to enjoy are the triptych Virgin and Child with saints and donors (late 15th century) by the Master of Santa Ana (active in Brussels during the last quarter of the 15th century) and The Crucifixion (ca. 1630) by the great painter of Spanish baroque Francisco de Zurbarán (1598-1664). Also on view will be Portrait of Martín Zapater (1790) by Francisco de Goya y Lucientes (1746-1790) and Lady in Blue Satin (1873) by the Spanish scholar painter Rogelio de Egusquiza (1845-1920), just to mention a few. On another part, Burne Jones: The Sleep of King Arthur in Avalon will open to the public on April 15 at the prestigious Tate Britain in England. Dedicated to one of the emblematic works of the museum, The Sleep of King Arthur in Avalon (1881-1898) by Edward Coley Burne Jones (1833-1898), the show will also include preparatory drawings. While, the most acknowledged work of MAP, Flaming June (1895) by Frederic Lord Leighton (1830-1896), will also be exhibited at Tate Britain for a year. The presentation of these paintings in England figures as the first occasion in which both works are out of Puerto Rico simultaneously since they were acquired by the founder of MAP, Don Luis A. Ferré. Thereafter, they will move to Museo Nacional del Prado in Spain to be part of an English art exhibition.
