Some twenty texts by the bullfighter José Delgado (alias Pedro Illo) and 26 aquatints by Pablo Picasso that illustrate the text. This is the work Bullfighting, brought together by the Fundació Suñol and on display until September.
The artist, fascinated by the world of bullfighting from a young age, produced these highly expressive works of art in 1959. In fact, bullfighting is a running theme in the work of the painter and sculptor.
Through this exhibition, the Fundació Suñol is paying homage to Picasso 40 years after his death.
Fundació Suñol | From 18/04/2013 to 07/09/2013
Passeig de Gràcia, 98 – Eixample
Paintings, drawings, engravings, photographs, documents and personal objects. In all, there are 100 items in “Courbet, between Nature and Culture”, the first major exhibition in Spain dedicated to the father of realism: Gustave Courbet.
Jean Désiré Gustave Courbet (1819 – 1877) was a French painter who led the Realist movement in 19th-century French painting. Courbet occupies an important place in 19th century French painting as an innovator and as an artist willing to make bold social commentary in his work.
You can visit this exhibition at Museu Diocesa. It offers an all-round view of Courbet’s character, both as an artist and a democratic activist. It also highlights his relationship with Catalonia and Spain, and the influence his ideas had on other artists, like Picasso and Miró.
The exhibition features masterpieces such as “Le Chateau de Chillon” or “Portrait d’homme d’apres Velazquez” and many landscapes of Normandy.
Where: Museu Diocesa
Av. Catedral, 4 (next to the Cathedral)
When: Until September 5th, 2010.
Imagine a city where you can see one of the most impressive Romanesque art collections and historical paintings that describe the Mediterranean countries during Middle Ages, and then, just walking ten minutes you are on a modern building featuring an exceptionally comprehensive collection of works by Joan Miró. But don’t stop there. Continue dreaming about a gothic palace where nobles and knights have been replaced by Pablo Picasso works, a city where buildings seem a quarry or even a dragon…
