The IE School of Arts and Humanities in collaboration with IE’s Alumni Association has the honor to invite you to attend a lecture entitled “Art Collections as Self-Portrait ” on Tuesday, March 9th at 19.30h, given by Ms. Dolores Jiménez-Blanco. 

Ms. Dolores Jiménez-Blanco is a professor of Art History at the Universidad de Complutense de Madrid and author of several books and articles about 20th Century art and art collections.  These publications include “Seekers of Beauty,” written in collaboration with Cindy Mack (2008).  She has been the Editor of the Prado Guide, 2009, and Exhibition Commissioner at the Museo Reina Sofia and the Fundacion Mapfre in Madrid.   She is currently a professor at the IE School of Arts and Humanities.  

“An art collection is something much more than a mere accumulation of superb pieces, chosen for their quality, for their price or for their unique character.  An art collection is the best mirror of the personality that has shaped it.  For this reason, no two collections are the same.  By analyzing a few select collections, we can better understand, how the collector presents themselves to the world; as a daring personality, or a conservative one, as cosmopolitan or traditional, as fatuous or generous.”  

The lecture will be given in room E-107 on the IE Business School Campus located at c/ Pinar, 9. 

If you are interested in attending, please RSVP to  ArtsHumanities@ie.edu 

IE School of Arts and Humanities en colaboración con la Asociación de Antiguos Alumnos del IE tiene el honor de invitarle a la conferencia titulada “Las Colecciones de Arte como Autorretratos” el martes 9 de marzo a las 19.30h, impartida por Dña. Dolores Jiménez-Blanco. 

Dña. Dolores Jiménez-Blanco es Profesora de Historia del Arte de la Universidad Complutense de Madrid y autora de varios libros y artículos sobre arte del siglo XX y coleccionismo. Entre ellos destaca Buscadores de Belleza, escrito en colaboración con Cindy Mack (2008). Ha sido editora de The Prado Guide, 2009, y Comisaria de exposiciones para el Museo Reina Sofía y la Fundación Mapfre in Madrid. Asimismo, es profesora asociada de IE School of Arts and Humanities.

“Una colección de arte es algo más que una simple acumulación de piezas sobresalientes por su calidad, su precio o su carácter único. Una colección de arte es el mejor espejo de la personalidad que le ha dado forma. Por eso cada una de ellas es diferente. Analizar algunas colecciones nos ayudará a entender que, a través de su propia colección, el coleccionista se presenta al mundo como un personaje audaz o conservador, como cosmopolita o castizo, como fatuo o generoso”. 

La conferencia se impartirá  en el aula E-107 del Instituto de Empresa situada en c/ Pinar, 9. 

En caso de ser de su interés, ruego confirme su asistencia a  ArtsHumanities@ie.edu
