Curator Pick of the Month

Title: The Music Lesson
Artist: Luis Jimenez y Aranda (1845-1928)
Creation Date: 1879
Origin: France
Medium: Oil, panel

The pastel colors of this month’s pick, The Music Lesson, by Luis Jimenez y Aranda, call to mind spring flowers, which is why we've selected it as our May Curator's pick. This painting is one of three pieces by Luis Jimenez y Aranda in The Drexel Collection. Aranda was a Spanish artist who studied at the Academy of Fine Arts of Santa Isabel de Hungria in Seville and eventually settling in France near Paris. While we are unsure of the donor of this painting, Anthony J. Drexel, the founder of Drexel University, purchased a number of paintings by Spanish artists, including Aranda, for his home in Philadelphia.

Welcome to the Collection

Drexel University, initially Drexel Institute of Art, Science and Industry, was founded on the belief that education should be both practical and cultural—and that art should be not only beautiful, but educational. On that principle, The Drexel Collection—the University’s flagship collection of art—was founded alongside the University in 1891. Today, the Collection remains a resource for historically and culturally significant works of art as Drexel University pioneers a model for the modern, urban university.
