The late 19th century is considered one of the most vibrant periods of
European painting, in which Spanish painters played a major role. The
exhibition offers a careful selection of works by the best Spanish artists of
this period, showing nearly one hundred artworks, among oil paintings,
watercolors and drawings, coming from five Spanish private collectors.
Great masters of the renown of Mariano Fortuny, Joaquín Sorolla and
Ignacio Zuloaga reveal the artistic splendour of the different pictorial
movements and themes produced in a period in which the growth of the
bourgeoisie encouraged the art market. First Rome and then Paris were
the two main destination cities for artists, art dealers and collectors.
The exhibition explores this period of great renewal in European painting,
which coincided with the beginning and development of Impressionism.
Orientalism, Luminism, with the light of the Mediterranean as the
protagonist, Portraits, and Spanish genre scenes, which made the
idealised vision of Spain fashionable in Europe, are the different sections
of the exhibition.
