Solidity and Beauty: Miguel Blay at the Museo del Prado
MADRID, SPAIN  •  Museo del Prado  •  19 April - 2 October 2016
 
 
The Museo del Prado marks the 150th anniversary of the birth of Miguel Blay (Olot, 1866 – Madrid, 1936), one of the most important Spanish sculptors of the late 19th and first third of the 20th centuries, with an exhibition of several important works from a career that reflects the different trends prevailing in sculpture during his lifetime, principally Realism, Modernismo and Symbolism. The show features drawings, medals, hand-written notes and key works within the artist’s oeuvre, including To the Ideal and Blooming.

Georges de La Tour (1593-1652)
MADRID, SPAIN  •  Museo Nacional del Prado  •  23 February - 12 June 2016
 
In France, Georges de La Tour (1593-1652) is considered the most celebrated national artist of the 17th century and one of the most popular in French art of any period, alongside Monet, Renoir and Cézanne.
 
The present exhibition comprises 31 paintings by La Tour, which is an exceptional number given that only around 40 by his hand survive. They have been loaned from prestigious international institutions such as the Musée du Louvre, the J. Paul Getty Museum, the Metropolitan Museum of Art and the Kimbell Museum in Fort Worth, Texas, of which the latter two museums are lending two of the artist’s most essential works, The Fortune Teller and The Cardsharps, respectively. Also fundamental for the organisation of this exhibition has been the generous contribution made by provincial French museums, which house an important number of works by La Tour, as well as the fact that the two recent acquisitions by the Prado of works by the artist (Saint Jerome reading a Letter and The blind Hurdy-gurdy Player) have made the Museum an international reference point for the study of this French painter.
