Ribera Across
the Generations

Dr Gabriele Finaldi, Director, The National Gallery, London, and Dr Edward Payne, Senior Curator, Spanish Art, Auckland Castle Trust, discuss two recent exhibitions of Jusepe de Ribera's drawings to mark the publication of the first complete catalogue raisonée of the artist's works in this medium. Gabriele Finaldi was curator of Ribera: Master of Drawing at the Museo Nacional del Prado in Madrid. Edward Payne was curator of the exhibition's second incarnation, Between Heaven and Hell at the Meadows Museum, Dallas. Their conversation is a masterclass on the work of one of the greatest draughtsmen with fascinating insights into the evolution of his oeuvre.
