Spanish painting of the 19th century. From Goya to modernism

Exhibition October 4 − December 3, 2020
Maria Christina Masaveu Peterson Foundation organizes an exhibition“Spanish painting of the 19th century. From Goya to Modernism ".

Visitors will be able to see over 120 magnificent examples of Spanish painting.

The exposition contains the names of the most prominent Spanish artists. The exhibition begins with two significant works by Francisco de Goya and Agustín Esteve, a neoclassical portrait of Sakarias Gonzalez Velazquez, and four paintings by Vicente López, which show his evolution from references to his late Baroque teaching to works with romantic overtones. The next block of the exhibition concentrates numerous trends that have arisen in the last third of the century: the historical genre (Ignacio Leon y Escosura and Francisco Domingo), landscape (Carlos de Haes, Agustin Riancho, Martin Rico, Mariano Fortuny and Luis), naturalism (Aureliano de Beruete , Eliseo Meifren, José Moreno Carbonero and Cecilio Pla). The heart of the collection is the work of Joaquin Sorolla. Modernism is embodied in the paintings of Santiago Rusiñol, Hermen Anglada-Camaras and Ramon Casas. The exhibition concludes with several outstanding works of Catalan postmodernism.
