The San Diego Museum of Art will debut the landmark exhibition Spanish Sojourns: Robert Henri and the Spirit of Spain. Robert Henri was one of the most influential American artists of the early 20th century. Spanish Sojourns consists of 40 major paintings that present a dazzling cross-section of Spanish society as experienced by Henri on his visits to Spain. The exhibition kicks off the Museum’s 2015 Centennial Celebration honoring the history of art in San Diego’s Balboa Park. In 1915, Henri helped organize an exhibition of work by America's foremost artists for the Panama-California Exposition, marking the first time San Diego was exposed to a major exhibition of contemporary American art.
