Event Description What do a Spanish 17th century painter and a California-born contemporary artist have in common? Fruit. The San Diego Museum of Art invites you to the premiere of Juan Sánchez Cotán and Cauleen Smith: Mystical Time and Deceptive Light (on view March 14, 2020 – June 21, 2020), an exhibition featuring a video installation created by contemporary artist Cauleen Smith. Considered one of the greatest masterpieces by Spanish painter Juan Sánchez Cotán, Still Life with Quince, Cabbage, Melon, and Cucumber (ca. 1602), is recognized for its deceivingly simplistic yet highly realistic approach due to the artist’s use of composition, light and geometry. In response to Sánchez Cotán’s work, Smith created her own work to addresses the questions posed by the master more than 400 years ago through this special exhibition. The work will become part of the Museum’s permanent collection. On the faculty at California Institute of the Arts in Los Angeles, Smith received her MFA from the UCLA School
