  • Picasso Discovers Paris

    Picasso Discovers Paris

    Barcelona's Picasso Museum is one of its most-loved art centres, focusing as it does on the early years of the Spanish painter's life; he moved with his family to Barcelona in 1895 when he was 14 and already well established in his art studies. The city played a key role in his development; in places such as Els Quatre Gats café, he regularly met with other creatives involved in the avant-garde movement. But he was a man constantly looking for new experiences and inspirations, and this exhibition at the Museu Picasso looks at the impact that his first two visits to Paris had on him.

    Among the artists on show are Manet, Degas, Cézanne and Gauguin (on loan from the permanent collection of the Musée d'Orsay in Paris and the Musée national Picasso Paris), whose work Picasso first encountered in person when he was in the French capital.

  • Velázquez and the Golden Age

    Velázquez and the Golden Age

    One of the greatest painters in history is the protagonist of this extensive new exhibition at CaixaForum. Diego Velázquez was born in Seville in 1599 and, before his death 61 years later, produced some of the most renowned works from Spain's acclaimed Golden Age. His renditions of the Spanish royal family (created in his role as the lead artist of the court of Felipe IV) such as 'Las Meninas' are particularly famed, but the Baroque artist also captured religious scenes as well as more down-to-earth subjects, including 1629's 'The Drunks'.

    Today, the most important collection of his works is held in Madrid's Prado Museum and that's the source of many of the pieces on show here, which are compared and contrasted with those of several of his Spanish and European contemporaries such as Zubarán, El Greco, Murillo and Ribera. Don't miss this excellent opportunity to see a spectacular selection of 17th-century paintings at Barcelona's beautiful CaixaForum venue.

  • Touching color. The renewal of pastel

    Touching color. The renewal of pastel

    Fundación MAPFRE is putting on an exhibition with a difference; an exhibition based on one of the materials used throughout the entire history of art: pastels. It wasn’t until the end of the 19th century that the use of pastels became an art form in its own right, independent of all the other techniques such as oil painting, in that quality of the material was a perfect match for a certain concept of modernity that was surfacing at that time.

    This exhibition highlights the main stages pastel art has been through and its most outstanding figures, the ones who turned into an art form in its own right. Boudin, Redon, Degas and Manet, are among the artists who endowed the use of pastels with an innovative status as opposed to the later generation that included Picasso, Miró, Blanchard and Theo van Doesburg.
