DALLAS (AP) — An internationally renowned art collection featuring more than 100 rare works will be displayed in Dallas next spring.

The collection will be featured at the Meadows Museum at Southern Methodist University and will mark the 50th anniversary of the museum's opening and also the 100th anniversary of SMU.

The exhibition — "Treasures from the House of Alba: 500 Years of Art and Collecting" — will run from April to August and include paintings by Goya and Rubens, 16th century tapestries and 19th century furniture created for Napolean III.

The Dallas Morning News reports (http://bit.ly/1nProJU ) selections also will include manuscripts, documents relating to Christopher Columbus, antiquities and sculptures.

Some of the artwork has been in the collection of the Alba family, which has ties to the Spanish monarchy, for five centuries.
