The Golden Age of Spanish Modern Art
Colnaghi, London, is delighted to present a survey of painting by Spanish artists of the late nineteenth and twentieth centuries.
The Golden Age of Spanish Modern Art comes at a time of renewed interest in this period, and follows exhibitions appraising ‘Catalan Modernisme’ at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York, the Cleveland Museum of Art, and the Van Gogh Museum, Amsterdam. Many of the featured artists, amongst them Ramon Casas, Francesc Miralles and Joaquim Sunyer, moved from Barcelona to Paris, and the exhibition seeks not only to examine the impact of this on their work, but to also re-evaluate and acknowledge their contribution to the canon of Modern Art.
The exhibition is comprised of fifteen works by twelve artists. All of them trained at the art academies of Barcelona, but, as with Picasso, many were drawn to Paris, at the time the epicentre of the artworld. The variety of styles and techniques presented here attest to their absorption within the city and the influence of their peers and contemporaries.
Featured artists: Alfred Sisquella | Antonio Fabres y Costa | Francesc Miralles i Galaup | Joaquim Sunyer | Joaquim Mir | Josep Maria Tamburini i Dalmau | Laureano Barrau | Lluis Graner i Arrufi | Marià Fortuny | Miquel Villà i Bassols | Modest Urgell | Ramon Casas i Carbó
Note: Due to Covid 19 restrictions, the exhibition is by appointment only.
