  • Ignacio Zuloaga. Torerillos de pueblo (Young Village Bullfighters), 1906. Painting. Museo Nacional Centro de Arte Reina Sofía Collection, Madrid
    05 july, 2000 - 04 october, 2000

    Ignacio Zuloaga (Éibar, 1870 - Madrid, 1945) is one of the last masters from the Spanish School. His iconography is considered an accurate portrayal of what the writer Miguel de Unamuno called "the internal history of Spain." Beyond the naturalist will, Zuloaga seeks the character of a people. For this reason, his paintings about Black Spain provoke controversy: in the newspaper El Imparcial José Ortega y Gasset declared in 1911: "Zuloaga is a great artist because he has the art of raising the tragic Spanish theme."

    Both flamenco, conceived as modern popular culture, and the artistic avant-garde arise during the late nineteenth century.

  • Exhibition view.  Campo Cerrado. Spanish Art 1939–1953
    April 26 - September 26, 2016

    Campo Cerrado

    Spanish Art 1939–1953

    The exhibition Campo Cerrado takes its name from the homonymous novel by Max Aub and looks to examine Spanish art in the complex and controversial 1940s, a decade that has received little attention and one that exists in a critical and historiographical vacuum, despite its importance in structuring modern sensibility in Spain.
