On Seeing Segovia

Paintings, Etchings, and Story by Jules André Smith

Do you need a vacation? Experience the sights and sounds of majestic Spain this summer as the Art and History Museums of Maitland presents On Seeing Segovia in the Maitland Art Center galleries. One hundred years ago, Art Center founder Jules André Smith traveled from Paris to Segovia, Spain during the spring of 1921. He recorded his adventure in dozens of drawings, etchings, watercolors, paintings and a witty short story that chronicles his first impressions and experiences in Spain. Most of these never-before-seen, incredible works will be revealed to the public for the first time.  Several of Andre’s original etching plates will be exhibited alongside his original cast iron printing press that dates back to the mid 1800’s. Bring the family and join us as we explore Spain through the eyes of our founder!
